Apple has added third-party navigation apps with CarPlay and so this time you don’t have to rely solely on the Apple Maps. You can even use the Google Maps but you have to make sure that it is updated to the latest version. You can search for the traffic information, alternative routes and places just from the built-in display of the car. If you navigate on the iPhone and then jump in the car, Google Maps will automatically sync the last place where you left in the phone.
