waze on car gps?

7,944 1,447 June 25, 2016 at 06:09 AM
I have a gps on my 2013 dodge charger... However, I like Waze a lot better.. There may not be a way, but if there is, I figured someone here would know... Is there a way for me to somehow get Waze on the uconnect system in my charger? If not I'll keep using my phone.. would be nice though... Thanks!

HERE Maps is the best offline maps.
I was using Google maps for 2 years. Last month, I switch to HERE Maps offline because I want to save phone data. Best switched ever.

I think the reason WAZE is preferred is due to the traffic information not the maps.
Hard top beat WAZE for traffic information.

I use the Bluetooth to get Waze to speak directions through the car's speakers, and a dashboard air vent mount so that I can see the phone. Works far better than the built-in GPS.

Yea... that's what I went for... spent over $1000 on the gps in the car... thought it would be great... at first I loved it... built in... amazing.. then I saw I had to pay for traffic updates through sirius... but in the end, it's all of the alerts that made me switch over to waze.. .was hoping I could somehow get it on the screen in my car.. but like you I started using a vent mount

i think you would still need your phone. since waze is updated via the internet. maybe a cable from your phone to your gps screen?

Yes it would be nice Sirius traffic is not really very useful only major roads and seems to have major lag.
Unlimited WAZE would be a great thing for T Mobile to add, I might even switch for that!

If you have an Android phone, you could look into a Lockpick [coastaletech.com]. Not cheap, but would let you mirror your phones screen (plus a bunch of other features).

I'm not sure if a newer model of your car supports Android Auto or Apple CarPlay, but if it does it might also be possible to retrofit the newer system into your car. But that's not going to be cheap either.

That, and cops up ahead. My son's soccer team regularly plays anywhere from VA to RI (and a lot of the parents also drive for work), and every parent swears by WAZE. The auto-correct or auto-reroute feature is great.
