Here then is what you have to do to get Google Maps working on your CarPlay system.

When Apple announced iOS 12, it made one huge change to CarPlay, where third-party apps could integrate, rather than the standard Apple-only apps you received in earlier versions.

Thanks to an update to iPhone's latest iOS, you can now use the much-more-reliable Google Maps app while driving, as opposed to its native program, Apple Maps.

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.

The new Google Maps with CarPlay support is available to download now, from the App Store.

You need to follow a simple process to replace Apple Maps with Google Maps.

I expect to give this a spin and update you on my experience with third-party mapping apps in the near future.

"Search for places, see alternative routes and get live, up to date information about traffic jams and delays happening right now".

Once done, go to Settings General CarPlay on your iPhone and select your vehicle. You can also start Google Maps from your iPhone and continue where you left off once connected to CarPlay. Last year, Google added a different "find parking" option in 25 US markets that reveals parking lots and garages near your destination once you type in that address. Apple is also reportedly counting on iPhone users to provide anonymous location data by opening the map app. Users' personal privacy is not compromised, as the mapping data is anonymous. iPhone users can also opt out of sending data to the company.

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