I only want CarPlay for Waze. But if using waze and listening to xm radio at the same time isn't possible while also having easy channel change capability, it's useless to me.

I was told CarPlay can't show maps while idrive plays XM. Not sure if that's true.
I was using Google Maps via CarPlay this week and listening to SiriusXM at the same time. So that combo works.
Can you have google maps displaying and browse XM via presets at the same time? If so, can you use the preset buttons or the scroll on the steering wheel? Or both?
