  1. Following the update of my Apple phone 12 Pr Max to IOS 16, currently 16.1 there is considerable battery drain and overheating of the phone

    Eversince I updated my iphone 12 pro max to IOS is whenever I use Apple Carplay and especially WAZE the phone overheats significantly in a very short timespan and also the battery drops dramatically in no time.
    Is Waze aware of this problem ? Are they doing something to fix it.
    The same issue does not occur when I use other navigation software’s in Apple Carplay.

    Please fix it as I can not continue using Waze with such dramatic battery use and overheating of the phone!

    We plan to work on adding the Electric charging stations on the map in the near future. In the meantime, make sure you’ve got the latest version of Waze for all the latest features.

  3. Indications too big

    Indications are too big in Apple Car Play. Add font/zoom setup on options.

  4. Add Dark Mode Toggle Button on Apple CarPlay Display

    On Apple CarPlay, when the vehicle headlights are on, Waze switches to Night Mode. This seems to be independent of the phone settings.

    The only way to change this is to use the phone app and change the Map Display/Dark Mode setting to Off. This is not a good solution while operating a vehicle.

    This could be fixed by adding a Day/Night (Dark Mode) toggle button on the CarPlay display.

  6. CarPlay Final Destination

    Please please please start making it where on Apple CarPlay the final destination pen is either on the left or the right where the final destination actually is because it’s always just on the right and that makes me think my destination is on the right but then when I look at the little flag icon that’s on the left that confuses me even more and takes my attention off the road

  8. Access Phone’s Calendar from Apple CarPlay

    At the moment, you can access your iPhone’s calendar from the Waze app on the iPhone. This allows you to select the calendar item from Waze, and then Waze will automatically commence navigation to the address associated with the calendar entry.

    Unfortunately this same feature isn’t available from Waze within Apple CarPlay.

    This feature enhancement request is to request the same calendar access ability from Waze in the iPhone app is made available on the Waze Apple CarPlay app,

    That way, you can get in your car, and from Apple CarPlay Waze, select the calendar entry appointment you are driving…

  9. Waze to issue Alerts when using CarPlay split screen

    According to Waze support, when using Carplay split-screen (where Waze splits screen with other app like music), Waze won't issue traffic Alerts by design!! That's true, I have confirmed it. As soon as Waze returns to "full screen", it resumes issuing traffic alerts (danger, weather, radar, etc).
    Split-screen is a quite usefull feature of Car-Play as it simplifies greatly audio/music control on the road, without the issue of messing with several buttons.
    Although in split-screen mode the screen area that Waze has to show information is reduced, there is no reason why Waze could not keep issuing the alerts by…

  11. Apple CarPlay Alerts

    Alerts are dangerous! Hear me out. I love the alerts. I missed two mattresses on the highway today alone. However, with everyone reporting things, I found myself seeing an alert when I was inside of 1 mile to an exit on the highway. Driving in larger metropolitan areas can be tricky with multiple turns and exits in succession. On the current update, both the navigation and duration boxes disappear to show an alert for 0.5 miles. 30 seconds on the highway as you approach an exit you don’t know creates a dangerous situation leading to last minute lane changes.
    A …

  12. Speed wrong

    Speed shows 335 km/h while carplay is connected and the car is at 80km/h. If I disconnected carplay the speed in my phone is perfect.

  16. CarPlay speed instability

    Waze speed bounces plus or minus 3 mph about every second in CarPlay. This is inaccurate and causes problems with automatic map zooming. When speed is not displayed the map zoom is stable and smooth. Speed display is not useable in CarPlay therefore speed limits cannot be displayed.

  17. Driving directions on virtual cockpit

    Hey Wazers, I have found out, that when you use Apple Maps app through CarPlay, it is able to transfer information about next driving direction (for example "in 100m turn right" and an arrow) to the control unit of my car and it then shows it to me on my virtual cockpit. Since anothe iOS app can do this, I hope others should be able to, arent they? It will be really good to implement this...

  18. Cannot read reports from Wazers (green ...) when in CarPlay

    When in CarPlay I can sometimes see a report (green ...) but cannot click on it to hear it play nor - when I am the right-side passenger see it on my phone to find out what is ahead. I wish it would play as alerts do - or that my phone would mirror the CarPlay display so I can better navigate from the right seat.

  19. Apple CarPlay shortcut for reporting a hazard

    To report a hazard (ie pothole) requires 4 clicks. Would be great if there was a few one click shortcuts to report the most common hazards such as a pothole, police, and vehicle stopped on side of road. This would be much safer than fumbling around to report a pothole while driving.
