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

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

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

What would need to happen is you'd plug in your phone and the phone screen should show on the car screen. It would be similar to plugging in your laptop or desktop to a larger monitor and show the display.
I don't think that technology is available yet to even plug your phone into a computer screen. Once that comes out though I'm sure it will be a short time before it integrates to a vehicle.
FYI I'm sure they have some sort of cheap Chinese version of it. Google it

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.

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.
