Apple Maps is no longer the only option for navigation by Apple's CarPlay system as iOS 12 is released.
Users of CarPlay now have the option of choosing between Google Maps and Apple Maps with updates released today on Google Maps. More third party applications are in progress.
The incorporation of Google Maps into CarPlay was made possible by the update of iOS 12 released yesterday. Waze, owned by Google, has not yet announced a specific date for CarPlay support, but it has also been set to aim for a leap to CarPlay.
The CarPlay version of Google Maps does not come with Siri support, but you can use Google's voice search in your app. With Google Maps, you can access all the pins and addresses stored in your Google Account so you can easily navigate to popular destinations.
