  1. 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.

  3. Distance

    When CarPlay is in tiled mode (where it shows what song is playing and Waze only has half the screen) Waze shows me the ETA and the minutes remaining—distance remaining is left off due to the smaller screen real estate. Since I can derive time remaining from the ETA, how about showing distance remaining instead? So instead of:
    10:31am 42 min
    show:
    10:31am 35 miles

  4. Car Play phone view switch

    When connected via Car Play, the map can only be seen on the car. The turn-by-turn list is the only thing you see on the phone screen. I want the ability to see the map on the phone too. When re-routing occurs I often want to view the route to see if I want to go a different way. Trying to pinch/move/navigate the car screen is hard, and becomes unsafe very quickly. Pinching/moving on the phone is much easier and ultimately safer.

  5. Change Waze user interface on CarPlay (with or without Touch screen) to DEFAULT cursor position is ‘Report’.

    I have no Touchscreen on CarPlay, controls therefore are scroll buttons on steering wheel. Whenever I’m driving it take several (4 typically) button presses just to toggle the ‘report’ button (like if there is a car on side of road). I’m recommending that the CarPlay cursor defaults to this button so user just presses ONE click to file a report, confirm a warning or whatever - much safer (eyes on road) and more likely to use as it’s a pain & by the time you reach the selected report button on screen, hazard is past / behind you.

  9. Please fix dark mode in Apple Carplay.

    It’s been broke since last update. It only works right when I open the app on my phone and radio at the same time, which negates the purpose of carplay being handsfree. I’ve been patiently awaiting an update for weeks, but I’m about to delete your app for burning my retinas every morning when I drive to work in the dark.

    On Apple car play the map does not switch to night mode. I have to force it in to night mode by opening Waze on my iPhone whilst it’s plugged in to the cars usb port. This is a bug as up until last week night mode worked in car play.

  11. Action icons on left in CarPlay (US) so driver doesn’t need to reach across

    Put the action icons on the left (in countries where cars are on right of road) when displaying in CarPlay so the driver does not need to reach across to use them. Notifications should appear on right instead of left.

  12. More integration with Apple CarPlay

    Will Waze ever have similar functionality, such as Apple Maps that more fully integrates in with Apple CarPlay, including the heads up display and the dashboard in addition to the navigation screen? I have a BMW and apples map capability, seamlessly integrates into the heads up display and the dash in addition to the NAV screen, and it would be great if Waze went through the same thing.

  13. Car play reroute move too far away

    The reroute button in CarPlay just got move from the left side the the right side of the screen. Most commonly used button now is too far of a reach for a driver. Dumb dumb dumb. Please for the love of Waze move it back to the left side of the car play screen

  14. Add all report options to Carplay

    I have experienced that I don’t have all options of reporting when I am travelling in the CarPlay mode. Please add the other options too for example speed traps (especially in Germany), Gas Prices and so on.

  15. Stop Waze auto starting

    Stop Waze from auto starting as soon as I get in my car that has wireless Apple Car Play and for that fact even if I plug in it should not auto start. I don’t always want Waze on and it is annoying in the background beeping and alerting even without a direction. This should be an option to auto start not forced. This is an unwanted feature and like and invasion on privacy and personal choice.

    I’ve tried Twitter to talk with Waze to no end, said I had to use this forum. I am forced to delete the…

  18. Waze car icon display fix

    When using Waze with iPhone 14 PRO on Sync 4A in 2023 Ford Edge and a route is selected, the car icon is cut off on the bottom of the screen when using AppleCarplay wireless and the Sync screen is set to the large display. Please have it shift a little more upward as to not cut off part off the icon showing where your vehicle is on the road.

    Put a second yellow button on drivers side so you don’t have to reach across. The passenger could use the right button.
