Google Maps on Carplay

Checked out Google maps on CarPlay after updating to IOS 12. Works great. I really like the satellite view.

Still waiting for Waze to release an update....

Yes I always just use the waze on my cell phone. Is there a way to make it appear on the car's screen?

Waze is available for the beta testers now. I've heard news reports that it should be public next month.

Same here. I have tried google map and it's slightly better than Maps, while I am waiting for Waze. The Internet-of-People (IoP) claims it is supposed to be released in mid-October. Since they only started the beta testing with iOS 12 release, and that they are updating it almost everyday, I think than one month is a bit short.

These two guys have done three Apple CarPlay vs Android Auto battles and they’re pretty funny. This is the third one where they try out Google Maps on CarPlay but you should watch all of them so you know what they’re talking about when they reference something from a previous episode.

Very funny! No references to prior tests that mattered to enjoying this video. iPhone owner here. I hate Apple Maps, but more for bad integration, bad search, bad interface, bad display of roads. Actual navigation is fine for me. In general, iPhone user interface has been getting worse. I blame Jonny Ives - he is not a UI guy.
