Google Maps works with Apple CarPlay following iOS 12 update

For those wondering, Waze has also confirmed it will be bringing CarPlay support to its app at some point in the near future, but no word on when that app's update will arrive. Rather than allow a free-for-all of apps to colonize CarPlay, instead the Cupertino firm took a strict hand to what titles it would allow.

Google Maps is now available for use on Apple CarPlay, Apple's vehicle user interface.

The first interpretation of the iOS 12 software was released fully on Monday for iPhone and iPad devices, and following Google's update on the app to enable CarPlay support, the most-preferred navigation system is available for everyone's use.

Most notably users are still able use Google Maps even if they are without an internet connection as the app lets users download specified data for such a circumstance. Then, once connected to CarPlay, it will pick up where it left off. Check it out to get the best of Google Maps right in your car's built-in display! That adds compatibility with CarPlay.

With an update released today for Google Maps, CarPlay users can now choose between Google Maps and Apple Maps.

The navigation experience itself is the same as in the regular iPhone app. If you've searched for something on your laptop, for example, that should show up as an auto-suggested destination when you load up the app on CarPlay.

Since the navigation app works with your Google account, you can save addresses like work and home for quick access to directions.

On the weekend, first images of Google Maps within CarPlay were shared by a beta tester, hinting a public launch would be coming soon.
