Popular Google-owned mapping app Waze was today updated with support for CarPlay on devices running iOS 12. The iOS 12 update allows third-party mapping apps to be used with CarPlay for the first time, providing an alternative to the built-in Apple Maps app.
With CarPlay support, iPhone users who prefer to use Waze for mapping purposes can do so through the CarPlay interface, something that was not possible with iOS 11.
Waze is a popular app because it provides detailed information on traffic, ongoing construction, crashes, and other issues that can result in travel delays.
Google Maps, another popular Apple Maps alternative, was also updated with CarPlay support last week.
Waze can be downloaded from the App Store for free.
