Has Waze announced their application is ready to? Apple does their part, Waze still have to do theirs.
If Waze hasn’t built an app version with the CarPlay framekit then it won’t function yet. The app publishes differently through API for Sync and aftermarket head unit connectors. We have to wait until Waze publishes their CarPlay framekit enabled version.I haven’t heard waze announce anything yet. My explorer with Sync 3 has a Waze App through FordSync, but I have to disable Apple Carplay to use it. I’m assuming the Apple CarPlay app should be similar to the Sync 3 app and shouldn’t be a real issue to push out.
Running GM iOS 12 on iPhone X into my car. CarPlay booted right up, but Waze was not an option.
I read that iOS 12 would bring Waze compatibility to CarPlay.
Any thoughts? I need my Waze!
I know this is off topic but what about Google Maps?
What about it? It's the same for GM as it is for Waze, or any other third party map application. CarPlay compatibility will be available in the public release of iOS12, on Monday. Following that all third party apps need to update to utilise CarPlay. And those updates can't be released until Monday at the earliest.
It’s on the WAY !!!!
Hello Dear iOS Beta Testers,
This is a heads-up to let you know that iOS Waze RC v.188.8.131.52 will be available in TestFlight very soon! Please make sure your notifications for TestFlight are ON.
Note: Remember to set your Waze Client to DEBUG mode after upgrading (type 2##2 in Search).
- Waze on Apple CarPlay is available for beta testers ONLY and your feedback is needed more than ever!
Awesome news Waze, if this was a month ago.
Are they really not allowed to beta test with TestFlight until the GM is released?
I didn't expect to see it during the Public Beta but I also didn't think Waze to be caught off guard by the news during the second week in September.
I'm picking up a new car saturday and for the first time I will be having a vehicle with carplay included.. I am super excited... My experience with Waze in the past has been horrible.... They always re-route me for every little thing and usually send me a longer more local way... Anyway I dont mind apple maps like many people do, but would also like to give google maps a shot..... Will probably try Waze again as well and see if I have a different experience.... Or perhaps I dont know how to use it well, will do a little reading up on it.
I have also noticed that Waze has deteriorated. Sometimes, it takes forever to find its route, and sometimes will fail completely at pulling up simple routes. The app has become a mess.Waze actually got worse for me over the first 6 months of this year...super weird routing that never matched what locals told me to do.
As I do every year when the beta is released, flipped over to Apple Maps to try new features. It’s been awesome.
I’ve always hated the Google Maps UI...
After experiencing the new updates in the Bay Area a couple of times over the past month, I’m sticking with Apple Maps.
It has been mentioned many times here...they could not release THEIR beta to work with Apple's beta...that's not the way it works.
While they may have had access to the coding required to develop their integration, allowing their app (beta or otherwise) to work on CarPlay requires them to wait until the public release of Apple's software.
