    hey guys!

    As many of you know already, iOS12 supports waze on CarPlay. The good news is that iOS12 beta is now public. You can go downlod it on your phone and enjoy waze on your CarPlay.

    I love it! I am happy apple took this decision.

    Here is the direct link
    Apple Beta Software Program

    Have you actually seen Waze on your carplay or are you just going by the announcement? I loaded IOS 12 Beta and I'm not showing it yet. Possibly Waze and Google maps haven't updated their apps yet.

    If they do, I’ll be extremely happy with that. What would be even better is if you weren’t locked into having CarPlay and your phone be on the same app at all times. Let me run, say, V1Driver on my phone and Waze on my CarPlay.

    We looked at adding ALP Connect in the past but they did not support programs that were not for music or strictly navigation. Does it give you police alerts or is it only for navigation?

    I downloaded the Beta and installed it all
    Hyped up and when I went in my car to see CarPlay, waze was not there. Sorry guys if I missed lead you.
    Google and Waze have to update their app to support carplay. I have read some leak that Waze is already working on it so it will be available soon.
    I think it will report police, traffic etc same as the app in the phone

    When I tested it on Android auto it gave police alerts. I’m assuming it will on CarPlay also.

    There is another way to do it tho, it is called car bridge. I have never tested it tho so I can’t vouch.

    You can with Android auto currently...I run jbv1 on my phone and Waze/Google thru Android auto on my head unit. Google just recently updated Android auto to allow the phone to be unlocked while Android auto is connected to the head unit... Not sure if Apple will ever allow this, though

    Yeah. I tried it this morning and it may work with a Waze beta, but not the latest version of Waze and Ios 12 beta.

    Android auto for my GM head unit (2017) gives me near full functionality, other than certain settings (what's visible, audible alerts). I can see, hear alerts, mark alerts for others, detour to select other routes, etc.
