Waze not 'waking up' when connected to CarPlay

Post by MJepson
I've had a couple of issues with Waze on CarPlay only giving an estimated location and not properly updating my route. It seems to be stuck on the approximate location from where I started, but it just sits there.
After some messing around, I found that Waze was on 'Sleep mode' on my iPhone 13 mini. After I unlock my phone and tell Waze to wake up, it works on my CarPlay as well.
How can I make Waze wake up automatically when I connect my phone to CarPlay? It is quite annoying as Waze will go to sleep after I take my phone out of my car (after a while at least), so every time I get back in my car I have to unlock my phone and manually wake up Waze before I can navigate.

Maybe can create a shortcut with the shortcuts app so every time you connect to CarPlay it opens Waze
