Use Waze on Apple CarPlay

Note: Apple CarPlay does not currently support Waze Carpool.


Use Waze directly on your in-car display with Apple CarPlay.

For this, you need a compatible iOS device and a car that supports CarPlay in one of these regions.

Connect your iOS device

To use your iOS device as an extension of your CarPlay display and view relevant information while you navigate:

  • Connect your iOS device to your car with a USB cable or wireless connection – learn how
  • Tap app icon on the CarPlay display

Note: Waze on CarPlay is a limited version of the mobile app, so some features might not be available.

View more with CarPlay

In CarPlay mode, one half of the screen shows the map, while the other half shows things like:

  • Navigation instructions
  • Search
  • Audio controls

If you prefer, you can switch to full-screen view at any time by tapping app icon or on the map itself.

Got questions?


Why am I only seeing Waze on part of the screen?
