Waze Integration With CarPlay Dashboard Goes Live
After a period of beta testing, Waze is now able to directly integrate with Apple CarPlay's multiscreen dashboard, as noted by users of the navigation app on the MacRumors forums.
In addition to CarPlay Dashboard support, the update appears to introduce in-app lane guidance for the first time.

Before the introduction of Apple's CarPlay Dashboard, users were required to switch between app screens to view audio controls and other information while navigating to a destination. The dashboard lets users see a map, audio controls, and more in a convenient split-screen view.
The feature, which was introduced in iOS 13 and initially limited to Apple Maps, was expanded in iOS 13.4 to allow third-party app developers to add support for the dashboard mode in their respective navigation apps.

And you know what else? You are NOT required to use it.
Both upcoming turns are covered by street name labels. One of the labels is cropped so you can't even read the full name, and the second turn is way over at the edge of the screen at risk of being off the screen entirely if Cornwall Rd was slightly longer.
In Apple Maps the labels would be on the screen, they wouldn't be covering your route, and the map would be rotated to make sure as much of the upcoming route is visible as possible — especially in cases like this where you're doing two right turns back to back.
