New GLA owner NY

Hello all I am new to the Mercedes Benz family. I recently purchased a 2015 GLA250. I love it!
I wanted to use Waze but reading this thread Iím not sure it will be possible. I do have the media package so Iím wondering if this makes a difference.
Thank you all for any feedback.

Welcome to the forum and congratulations on your GLA acquisition. Use of smartphone apps like Waze was generally not possible prior to 1 December 2015 production on US models, when Android Auto and Apple CarPlay became an option, requiring the multimedia package. To my knowledge it's not possible to include Waze in the CarPlay suite of apps. However, if you search on "Android Auto," "Apple CarPlay," or "Waze" (Search box on upper right of most browsers), you will find numerous threads discussing the issues and workarounds that enabled it for some folks with older model GLAs. IIRC, most members that enjoy Waze use the screen of their smart phones while streaming audio through Bluetooth, which you should be able to do with your 2015 GLA250. There are quite a few related issues, so understand one solution does not fit all, and not all workarounds are sanctioned by MB should collateral issues emerge.

You might have noticed this is an international forum with a variety of GLA derivatives from members around the globe. Might we suggest, if you will be participating in future discussions, that you add your location, GLA model and year to your member profile? It will then display under your member name each time you post and be a reference to others relative to questions or comments from you. You can do so from the User CP link on the upper right of most browsers.
