Google Maps now works on Apple Carplay!

Hi All

This post combines phones and satnav, I've always been disapointed that the Apple Carplay only worked on its own satnav which is awful, often doesn't know roads exist and will send you wrong (Christ knows how they expect to make a self driving car when they can't take me to Costco)

However not sure if its the new update but Google Maps now works with full functionality on Apple Carplay

This is great for me, was tempted to jump ship to Android just for this feature in the car.

That is good news. iOS12 brought in support for third party navigation apps so I guess Google Maps has jumped in pretty quick.

Funnily enough, Android Auto only works with Google Maps and doesn't support any third party nav apps.

Not very often that Android locks things down and Apple don't

It's good news, as genuinely the apple one was awful. Sending you daft ways, not knowing where the entrance was to places, just not accepting that certain roads let you go a certain way. The google equivalent is certainly much better and as good as a standalone satnav (which I abandoned a couple of years ago)

Yeah, but using it invalidates your warranty
