Apple CarPlay to allow for Waze and Google Maps at last

By Faiming_low on 05 Jun 2018 in New technology

Attached Image If you are an Apple CarPlay user, you would probably know that the Operation System does not allow the use of navigation app alternatives such as Google Maps or Waze. Thankfully that is about to change.

At the recent World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC) where the Apple announced its iOS 12, it said that the new iOS will bring third-party navigation support to CarPlay. Programs such as Google Maps and Waze will be “displayed right on the car’s dash - joining music, messaging, calling and automaker apps.”

There is no confirmation whether if these will be the only supported third-party navigation apps for CarPlay but, this move follows Google’s decision to allow third-party navigation apps for Android Auto. Waze support was added last year but it remains the only other option than Google Maps.
