Sat nav - car versus Waze/Google Maps/Apple Maps

Post by zebedeecornflake » Tue Nov 07, 2017 3:08 pm

Been using the inbuilt sat nav but it doesn't seem to show traffic problems quickly. Is there a setting to sort this? Also what are peoples' thoughts on the inbuilt sat nav versus Waze or Google or Apple Maps (the latter obviously an option as works with Car Play)?

Does the car not have TMC?

The in-built sat nav is actually very good (much better than my BMW's anyway). I prefer to use Google maps via Android Auto. It's better, and responds to my "Ok Google" command. I ask to navigate to a particular place in any format I like (not sticking to a specific format), either by just the name of the place or post code or "Home".

Thanks - does have TMC but doesn't seem to do a good job. Anyone else got suggestions?

For these kind of implementations I believe Google Maps is the best option and the best choice,
