    IOS12 will have WAZE & Google Maps ...

    The news today is that Apple has finally stopped trying to make Apple Maps happen, and will make Apple CarPlay function with third-party navigation apps like Google Maps and Waze with the latest iOS 12 update. Read More >> https://www.autoblog.com/2018/06/04/...gle-maps-waze/

    I took the road less traveled, and that has made all the difference.

    I believe that has to do with Ford's implementation of WAZE. This is has to do with IOS12. Apple has finally given in and will allow WAZE and Google Maps in Apple Carplay. If the iso12 news is a repeat than I apologize.

    Sad that it took Waze, and automobile & head unit manufactures going around CarPlay to get Waze on the dash before Apple would allow it directly. I know my Kenwood's app link works similar to the Sync's. I think Apple just realized people are so set on Waze that they would gladly give up CarPlay for it.

    Having dealt with Apple and their developer process more than a few times, i can say they definitely don't move that fast. As a result, I'd doubt that Ford + Sync had any impact on the lack of CarPlay support for their apps.

    OS12 obviously shows that this major update is more about "giving people what they want".

    Android Auto doesn't allow Apple Maps, now Google is behind interoperability :-)

    But whatever the reason, and absolutely no one non-Apple knows for sure, more options available = more customers satisfied... everyone wins.

    I'm not saying that Ford + Sync had any impact on the lack of CarPlay support for Waze, but I think the fact that people with iOS devices can now use Waze by not using CarPlay has pushed them to add Waze support in CarPlay. Following some of the discussions in the Waze development camp it has clearly sounded like a lack of support to even get Waze in to CP from Apple. Yes, they added support for Google Maps, but that was more of a "we admit our map app sucks and we want to pull some Android users" drive behind that.

    LOL, since Apple has not made an Android app for Apple Maps I'm saying Google is still ahead since they did make their map app for Apple.

    I do agree that more choices without having to really give up one over the over is better for the users.

    Glad to hear this. I shut off CarPlay to use Waze and discovered that while taking on the phone, Waze didn't update and missed my turn! That never happened with CarPlay. Also music interface (this is an apple issue) was screwed up such that it would play my not dowloaded music using data while CarPlay was off.
