Apple released iOS 12 yesterday and with that came with a feature, the availability of Google Maps on Apple CarPlay. Yes, that means you can use Google Maps for navigation on your Apple CarPlay system. Since Google Maps is available, it isn’t going to be long before Waze is available as well.
This is the first time that Apple has allowed a third party navigation system to be available on their CarPlay system. Being in a country where Waze is hugely popular, Apple is giving their users a choice which is a big thing because Apple normally likes to have their users stick to their apps.
So far no other indications on when the release will be for Waze on Apple CarPlay but it has gotten a lot of favourable responses as Waze has become ingrained with people’s navigation habits. Personally I believe most Malaysians now can’t live or navigate without Waze and having the ability to show Waze on your car’s internal screen is a huge gain.
