I picked up my new G05 last week. I have not been able to drive very much due to recovery stages related to fusion foot surgery.

I can select CarPlay if I like, but I prefer iDrive 7 which is limited when running CarPlay. When I put my iPhone X in the charging cradle, I can have Waze as active but my only test this morning did not result in audio alerts for police, traffic, radar hazards, etc.

Does anyone know if I should get still get Waze audio alerts given this configuration? Of course, if Waze had their app on my Apple Watch that would simply things for me!
