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!

Maybe take a look in the idrive settings to see if you have audio coming through via bluetooth or wifi, then check the carplay app on connected drive for a sound imput setting, lastly check if waze on your iphone is outputting sound via the device or wirelessly.

You should make a post on the bmw forums to help answer this, I wish I could help more but my m2 was optioned without apple car play since I use android devices, and I coded my idrive to have screen mirroring.

Thanks. I should have updated this thread but I was posting on Bimmerpost while finding the solution on my own.

Carplay now works, but I rarely used it because I then only have a truncated version of iDrive7. In the meantime, Waze in the charging cradle does send police alerts through the sound system so that is all I need. The early tests were during holidays when police were not active so nothing wrote with the equipment.
