Yes that method works, I've done that before, but it's not the native carplay. It would be easier if carplay worked I hope apple or ford fixes this
Hmm. Since I have done a lot of playing around with my Mach-E, it is entirely possible I punched in an address in the built-in nav, changed my mind and went to CarPlay Maps without stopping the built-in nav. If that is what happened, it sure suckered me into being a believer. I'll try again tomorrow and, if I can get Apple Car Play Maps to show on the cluster, I will confirm that. If not, I will go to the corner and eat some humble pie (already ordered the pie).

I haven't tested extensively - but I'm pretty sure a few weeks ago when I took a trip in my Mach-E that activating Nav in Waze via Carplay cancelled out the trip/nav I had started using built-in Nav.

Either way, I've never seen instrument cluster directions from any Carplay nav app in my Mach-E.

Any confirmation on this? I'm surprised I can't find this being called out in any of the reviews if it really is an issue. This should work for both Android and iOS.

I can't confirm CarPlay Nav instructions repeating on the cluster, but I CAN confirm in the CarPlay specifciation that using navigation through CarPlay is required to cancel any routing on the built-in navigation. And vice-versa: using the built-in navigation to start a route is required to cancel any routing that's occurring from CarPlay.

That said, it's just a specification from Apple, not sure if it's being honored by the Mach-E system.

So...has anyone confirmed this works in CarPlay?

I can confirm that I have been able to run both the native Navigation and Waze simultaneously. It gets very confusing!

I ran a test today and using the latest iOS, CarPlay does not provide any turn instruction on the driver display from either Waze or Google Maps.

I did test running native navigation and Apple Maps (which does NOT send the arrows to the instrument cluster), and each one would cancel the other out. But I haven't tried Waze to see if it cancels native nave. Plus, I think unless you are not specifically using Waze for guidance instructions (instead you're just driving for the miles and alerts), then this wouldn't apply. I think Apple's guidelines that they can't both be running only apply to guidance.

I assume you were using Waze in "normal" mode and not "AppLink" mode (*) ?

I wonder if Waze would if going through AppLink.

(*) I'm not 100% sure what this means.

So, I'm having to drive a 2021 BMW 228i for the next couple of days, and I noticed that mapping turns from Apple CarPlay do get sent to the center console in it. I thought that I might have read someone's conjecture that CarPlay can't do this? I might be misremembering that.

So, it would seem from my experience in the BMW that it is possible for CarPlay to accomplish. I might be retreading what others have already noted, but I thought I would throw that out there. It's always hard to tell if the problem for stuff like this lies with one party or the other, but I do hope they are able to add this functionality. It just makes common sense.

If BMW is able to make it happen then hopefully this is a software thing that isn't intended.

Especially if it's working for google maps on android.

The ID4 also has CarPlay navigation arrows on the gauge cluster (from a jalopnick review today)

I selected Waze through the CarPlay screen. If Applink mode requires something else, I don't know.

Too much trouble for a different system that might not work. I'm rather liking the built-in navigation.
🤷‍♂️ I don't use CarPlay or Android Auto anyway so ... no skin in this game :)
