Google Maps finally works with CarPlay

Google Maps will give you suggestions for parking while you're still in transit

Before any trip, I like to research.

You can download Google Maps if you have not done so on iTunes or just go to the App Store on your device and check for updates.

Arguably more valuable, though, is the synchronization between Google Maps for CarPlay, the regular iOS app, and Google Maps in the browser. However, Google, which owns that app too, has yet to update it to work on the system.

When Apple announced iOS 12 earlier this year it confirmed that one of the features would be allowing third-party navigation apps into CarPlay, bringing apps like Google Maps, Waze and more into the vehicle via the feature for the very first time.

Despite the improvements made by Apple Maps, it still remained a secondary choice for CarPlay users who would not mind clamping their phones to an external accessory for navigation purposes. iOS 12 which has been released across the iPhone range has changed the annoyance one and for all. For example, you can't use Siri to control the navigation whilst you are driving and this could be an issue in countries such as the United Kingdom, where you are now legally unable to touch your phone whilst driving.

iOS 12 is available to download right now for a score of iPhone and iPad models. You can search for a destination and see multiple route options, as well as get live information on traffic jams, congestion, accidents, and other delays along the route. All you have to do is delete the existing Google Maps application from your iOS device and re-install it. Simply drag the app to the main set of icons, so it will appear on your car's display and make sure "Use CarPlay While locked" is enabled. Finally, four years on, iPhone owners can now choose to use Google Maps, which is preferred by many iPhone users. But Google, that owns the app has not revealed any major update to help Waze support the i0S 12. Now in beta, the app is expected later this month.
