Waze now available on Carplay enabled UConnect systems for iPhone users

2019 Ram 1500 owners can now use Waze with Carplay on 8.4 and 12 inch UConnect systems

Owners of FCA vehicles with Apple Carplay enabled UConnect units: Uconnect 4, 4C and 4C Nav will now be able to have Waze, the popular navigation app displayed and controlled directly from their UConnect screen.

Waze helps you get to your destination quickly and safely by collecting traffic data in real time from all its users. Waze users (Wazers) can also report speed traps, traffic jams, red light cameras, and accidents. These reports show up on the map, and some will even give an audible alert. When a traffic jam occurs en route to your destination Waze will automatically plot a course around it if one is available to save time.

While Android Auto users were able to use Waze with their UConnect systems for some time now, it has finally been made available to iPhone users. No update for your UConnect system is necessary, but your iPhone must be running IOS 12 or higher and have the newest version of the Waze app installed.
