    Probably mentioned somewhere else on this forum but I think it deserves a spot here in the Q7 section as well.
    Finally, Apple is allowing 3rd party map and navigation apps to be used in CarPlay. I haven't used CarPlay much but I like the idea of having Waze running on the MMI screen while having the regular navigation in the virtual cockpit screen. Coming with iOS12, probably in September.

    Apple CarPlay will soon let you use Google Maps, Waze, and other third-party maps - The Verge
    Hopefully, but Iím half expecting we get that useless compass on the VC. Might need a new car too

    Had a play with google maps on CarPlay today. Seems okay but still stuck with the stupid compass in the VC and nothing in the HUD.

    Sounds like Waze is coming in a couple of weeks time which I could see myself using on trips where I know the area but want the traffic info.

    More apps, ones life is now complete.......
    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    Probably worth waiting to see how it is once iOS 12.1 is released in a couple of weeks.

    Had a few apps break since upgrading to XS Max and iOS 12 but most are already fixed.
