If not aware about that upgrade – CarPlay would support third-party navigation apps in iOS 12.
For those looking to use Google maps with Apple CarPlay, iPhone users will have to upgrade their devices to iOS 12 and Google maps version to 5.0 for the connection to work.
I second that, we waited for long time but it was worth it, enjoying Google Maps on CarPlay now. Pretty Convenient.
But why Apple Carplay doesn’t work in Bluetooth connection. We have to use the charging wire to run ACP (Applecarplay)
Carplay won’t work through a bluetooth connection. Carplay has a high data transfer rate. which is not possible using bluetooth connections. Bluetooth is slow for today’s standards.
Carplay can be used using Data cable(for 2017+ models) or Data cable/Wifi(Wireless Carplay) (for 2021+ models).
