Waze Is Lagging on Android Auto and CarPlay.

Waze is one of the best navigation apps available, which is why I recently ditched Google Maps for Waze

However, lately, we've seen many reports that Waze is lagging and almost unusable in both Android Auto and CarPlay.

there are so many reports of Waze lagging on Google's forums that it's a trending issue now.

the Waze app starts lagging so much that none of the other on-screen controls work until the user closes Waze completely.

One of Google's product experts on the official forum is aware of the issue and has sent an internal bug report to the Waze developers.

We're hopeful it will be fixed soon, but the rep didn't share a possible timetable.

Owners can try uninstalling and reinstalling Waze, but that won't help if it's a software issue.

The Waze app starts lagging so much that none of the other on-screen controls work until the user closes Waze completely.

This happens whether navigation is active or not and even seems to affect the CarPlay software.
