Google Maps Works with Apple's CarPlay

Andrew Krok  Roadshow

This brings native support for using Google Maps navigation, search and much more directly in your auto that supports iOS CarPlay devices.

Finally, users can access saved lists from Google Maps on CarPlay, and the app features real-time traffic updates for those who use it for the commute between home and work. Up until now, CarPlay software has only supported Apple Maps - considered by many an inferior map/navigation system to Google's ubiquitous offering.

Unlike Apple Maps, it is not now possible to use Siri to enter destinations and otherwise control Google Maps.

A blog post from Ruwen Hess, the product manager of Google Maps, declared: "Google Maps on CarPlay features the same navigation experience found in the app". Google-owned Waze is also supposedly set to make the leap to CarPlay too, though a specific date for CarPlay support hasn't been announced yet. When you land, simply refer to Google Maps and navigate to your saved locations. The app lacks the voice control for Siri but, it comes with its in-built Google voice search.

Apple released iOS 12 for iPhones and iPads on Monday. You will see an app screen where Google Maps will have appeared. Screenshots shared by CarPlay users after they made a decision to replace Apple Maps with Google Maps indicate that Google Maps retains its look and functionalities even after following CarPlay's UI guidelines.

iOS 12 is available to download right now for a score of iPhone and iPad models. Expect the Waze update and a similar update to other third-party apps to arrive soon, giving you more alternatives for Apple Maps. Open Settings, go General and then CarPlay.
