It was only a matter of time before someone leaked some juicy screenshots from the Apple CarPlay Waze beta app.
Thanks to a reddit thread started by user 89Dan we have a selection of CarPlay screenshots from the Waze app, which shows the Reporting screen, though to navigation and route selection.
As you can see from these screenshots, Apple’s navigation overlay persists on top of the Waze map tiles and UI we are all used to seeing in the iPhone side of the app.
Alerts can be seen on the map, whilst these screenshots show that night mode is also currently active.
Alternative routes can be selected, just like on Apple Maps, with the usual Waze colour combinations that display clearly which route is being selected.
A persistent Report button allows Wazers to report Police, Accidents, Traffic and Hazards.
The reddit user has urged other users to spill the beans on certain Waze CarPlay app features, including:
- An on-screen keyboard for searching on your touchscreen display.
- There is no Spotify integration on the CarPlay app
- Night mode switched automatically, as you would expect, but doesn’t switch when car headlines were on, like Apple Maps does
Access to the beta seem pretty loose at the moment, with some people saying they signed up and received access to the beta within 2 hours. If that is the case, we might test this out ourselves!
