Waze on Apple CarPlay

You can now run Waze on Apple CarPlay. A problem I am having is when you try to click on a post to get details, say an accident or police siting, nothing happens. When I do this on my phone the details appears in a pop-up. Is anyone else having this issue when using Waze? Thanks!

This is what I found that is dated 14 Sep 18. I guess we need to wait for the third party apps to finish their integration. :0(

I just updated my phone to IOS 12 and no joy as well. If you find anything out please post and I will do the same. Thanks!

Re: Google maps with Carplay and IOS 12 beta

Ok, IOS12 is out and loaded. Followed various howtos to get google maps on Carplay, no joy. Google maps is on the iphone. I get to the Chevy MyLink carplay setup screen on the iphone and it says to touch and hold home screen and drag icons to the desired location. That's not possible, so I must be ...

OTA Updates????

Since GM launched this capability last May or so, has anyone been offered an update? I could think of a few software fixes that one would think could be handled by OTA. 1.

When I shut off the engine OnStar did make this offer. I postponed it for two days to study it. I do not want to lose the ability to play mp4 videos. I ...

Re: OnStar offered software update

I Got the “battery issues” recall software update while asking them not to install the “infotainment” recall update. I can still play mp4 videos. However I no longer get the OnStar blast telling me about that update. So either they declined it for me or accepted it. Where do I find the Infotainment...

Re: AppleCarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth Issues

One would think this could hopefully be fixed with a software update. The technician said he was going to pass this on to Chevrolet as well. So if you are using a I-phone 7 or higher (Not 100% on above I-Phone 7 because do not have one), just use a USB cable that is designed for a I-Phone 6 or earl...
