I don't have Qashqai experience but on my Suzuki I press the white dot to get back to the apps screen and then the "Suzuki" button in the app array. That takes me to the Suzuki home screen. Have you got a "Nissan" button
Thanks for reply mate but going back on the apps screen there is only one music app which is the ytube one which plays the device music on my phone. I think I need to get another music app up with it.Hopefully someone else will come along with more info.

Have you tried customising via Android Auto on your phone?

This is what I see there - the "Exit" comes up as "Suzuki" on my car's screen.

Maybe you have to enable it?

Update on this topic. You cant have waze running with normal radio on, You got to have a suitable app installed which is suitable for android auto. I have tried several and the one I downloaded and tried today is the BBC Sounds app. Have also downloaded Deezer and Spotify which Waze approves but havent tried them yet.

I disagree, get Waze running then just press the Audio button and choose whatever you like. When set, press the AA button in the bottom left and go back to Waze with normal DAB etc running.

I'm off out later tonight so will test FM and see if it drops. Any and all the normal non-AA music options can be used with Waze running as far as I have am concerned, even music through Bluetooth from the phone wired in and running AA.

I went through them all bar Aux, one at a time. Start in Waze, press Audio, select one, let it play, press AA button and it goes back to Waze with the selected audio source still playing, FM included.
