Google Maps Now Supported On Apple CarPlay

Posted by at 1:56 pm on September 18, 2018

Google today said iPhone users can opt for Google’s Maps instead of Apple Maps when using their CarPlay-equipped automobile. Apple added support for third-party apps to CarPlay in the recently-released iOS 12 platform.

Google has updated its navigation app in order to make it compatible with iOS 12 and Apple’s CarPlay system. Google says Maps via CarPlay supports seamless transitions from Maps on the iPhone to Maps via CarPlay.  It will support  point-to-point navigation with real-time traffic updates and rerouting; offline maps for use in spotty coverage areas; and  saved lists/favorites.

Google says Maps should be available in most vehicles that include CarPlay, though it suggests users check online to view Apple’s list of compatible vehicles.
