Waze & My Car's "entertainment" system

Postby rjkelley58 » Tue Oct 15, 2013 3:13 pm

Is there a way to get Waze to work on the screen of my car's "entertainment" system?

GM on select vehicles now allows iphones and android smart phones running android 5.0 and higher to project certain phone apps on the in-car info-entertainment center. I can directly connect my Galaxy S7 to my 2016 Corvette via the USB charging cord and put Google maps from my phone on the 8 inch screen in my car and have full voice/touch screen control of the map. Since the GM system is 'open source 'waze programmers' should be able to write an app which will allow one to project the Waze map with all the voice/touch screen technology on to the in car system.

Is there *any* factory in-car system that can display Waze on the screen in the car?

Hi guys, any news on this topic?

I'm buying Chevrolet Cruze next week - and there's a "MyLink" system. It looks like it's able to work with the phone via Bluetooth and download additional data from the Internet (through the smartphone). There are also some apps that use phone and internet (internet radio and navigation).

Would be fantastic to see Waze on that awesome screen.

Regards,
Tigran.

Have you checked the Chevy website for more information? Isn't there an actual manual where it goes into more detail about how to do this? Typically, you can get assistance from your dealer.

Did you read what you just typed? "advanced voice control" is ALL that says. It has nothing to do with getting your phone screen onto your car screen, etc.

FYI, this sounds a lot like Ford's (Microsoft) SYNC, which just allows you to do things like dial your phone and other rudimentary stuff, but can't get stuff on the screen. The car imports your contacts so you can browse them on the car's touchscreen, but you aren't actually doing anything with your phone at that point. Bluetooth only is what it sounds like and the actual functionality of that is very limited.

This is what I have in the car: Keep in touch on the go while your hands are safely on the steering wheel with Chevrolet MyLink†, Bluetooth® wireless technology† for select phones and advanced voice control on Cruze. Simply pair your Bluetooth-enabled smartphone with Chevrolet MyLink and say what you want to do. Voice commands allow you to make and receive calls effortlessly while driving. You can even navigate through your phone's contacts or recent call list easily on the color touch-screen. Stepping into your car doesn't have to mean stepping away from your day. With Chevrolet MyLink, you can stay connected while on the move.

I have an Android phone with the Waze app on it but I want to know if I can get the Waze app to show up on the the "MyLink" screen

Does it claim to be able to integrated with smartphone nav or other apps? Again, as Andy noted, if you can't provide ALL the details, you can't expect anyone else to be able to help. It's like asking "how do I set up my email?" without specifying whether you're talking about creating a new email account, or getting access to it. And for getting access to it, do you mean on your phone or on your computer? And then, which OS is your phone or computer running? What email app or software are you using?

It goes on and on. Without details, you aren't going to get help.

Well I just bought a new 2013 Chevy Cruz with the touch screen radio system (I don't know what else to call it)
