Probably need to wait for updates from Waze and Google Maps to display their maps on the CarPlay Dashboard.

Correct. I tried it and it doesn't work. Google has to take advantage of the new capabilities. App update for sure.

I have both Google Maps and Waze installed and neither are displayed on the Dashboard. I tested both last night. I think you may not understand what everyone is asking you. This is likely coming in updates of Google Maps and Waze but so far no support for the Dashboard which currently only uses Apple Maps.

Could you take a picture of that and share it please.
I'm starting to feel we are talking about different things.

You are

The dashboard is where you have the 3 or 4 panes - Map, music, destination and calendar (I think) ... not the view you are talking about with the app icons.

My bad
Was referring to something else and it's the way I set up the widgets in the car that got me confused.

You might know this already but you can go to
Settings app > General > CarPlay > choose vehicle > customize. On your iPhone.

You can customize how your apps are laid out. You can also delete them from showing up in CarPlay as well.

Anyone have any insight into when Google/Waze will make the appropriate updates ?

This is a good article:

https://appleinsider.com/articles/20...party-map-apps

I prefer the full 12.3 screen when using Waze but the Dashboard does offer one thing the full screen option does not. When using the Dashboard you can take or make phone calls without losing your navigation mapping.

Have you got Waze to work in the dashboard ?

As of Monday, Google had not updated its mapping apps to take advantage of the new integrated dashboard view. I haven't checked since.

No, it's not yet supported by Waze or Google Maps. I'm just making the point that viewing a map on the Dashboard (as we can do with Apple Maps now) offers the added benefit of receiving or making a phone call while still viewing the map. That would helpful if you are navigating to an area unknown to you but you need to take a call. Currently the phone call takes over the entire screen when using Waze or Google Maps.

Waze Info

Waze is useful for spotting cops, accidents, or other road conditions on heavily traveled highways
