How We Brought Waze to the Apple CarPlay Dashboard

Inside the design process that put Waze functionality on CarPlay’s main screen

Bringing Waze to the Apple CarPlay Dashboard makes driving easier than ever.
Adam Fried, the Head of Global Partnerships at Waze, helped make the CarPlay integration possible.

Seamless driving with Apple CarPlay

With Waze on the CarPlay Dashboard, drivers can see their directions, music and calendars at the same time.

Striking the right balance for CarPlay Dashboard

Throughout the design process, the Waze Map was the top visual priority.
In this CarPlay Dashboard wireframe, the map is featured as the main visual priority with audio controls and the navigation bar in complementary positions.

Building a strong partnership with Apple

Easier driving (jam sessions optional)

Having Waze on the CarPlay Dashboard makes for smoother drivers and easier jam sessions.
