Where am I going?

Post by iamrobcampbell
When using Waze with Android Auto, how am I supposed to know where I'm going? I can't seem to find the destination anywhere on the screen.

If I say "Ok Google, directions to first name last name" it navigates me somewhere but I don't know if that's the right place or not. There should be somewhere I can click to see the destination. It should show me the name of the location and the address so I can be sure that's the correct destination.

Tap on ETA at the bottom of screen, it opens a window which shows the destination.

I think the point the OP is trying to make is that you don't get the option to choose a destination from a list, that would allow you to validate address, city, etc, to ensure it's the correct destination.
