Hi, does anyone know if it’s possible to get the next turn indication on the dash binnacle display like for the native nav when use Waze via CarPlay?

I have not tried all combinations, but so far I can confirm that Android Auto + Google maps shows next turn on the dash.
I can try with Waze and Apple a bit later when I have some time.

I use CarPlay with Waze, Google Maps, or Apple Maps. The only one that displays the turn indicator on the dashboard is the latter.

VERY interesting. So it IS possible.
With the proviso that Apple are the ones defining the specs for CarPlay, so they might be using private APIs not available to third-party apps.

(Same goes for Google Maps and Android Auto, of course)

Agree that this would be typical behaviour for them, at least at first. Then they can announce that they're so kind they've decided to open it up.

Thanks for all the replies, I was sure I had it working but must have bene using Apple Maps once and Waze the other time. I hope Waze can make this work also with CarPlay.

There is a bug in the SW that gets the dash direction wrong for roundabouts when using CarPlay. Possibly a drive on left / right side of the road issue? Is there a way to report bugs to Renault?

Yup,sounds like the app is sending "first exit" as information which the car is correctly interpreting, except for this weird lot on a bunch of islands up north....
