Google Maps is coming to CarPlay Dashboard soon.
On Monday, Google announced that it is improving Google Maps in Apple CarPlay and on Apple Watch.
The new Google Maps update brings Maps to the CarPlay Dashboard, the home screen window where you can see multiple things at once, such as calendar appointments, the music you̵7;re playing, and your directions. .
Apple did not allow third-party mapping applications in the field until the iPhone update in March. Historically, Google Maps users had to use Apple Maps on the Dashboard screen. Or, they must only use Google Maps individually and without the additional information provided by the Dashboard.
CarPlay lets you view several apps, make calls, talk to Siri, and more in the car that supports it. It competes with Google’s Android Auto platform, which works on Android phones.
Changes will be rolled out starting Monday.

Google Maps turn-by-turn directions will roll out on the Apple Watch in the coming weeks.
That means you can get directions on Google Maps and then look at your watch to take the next step. It’s useful if you are walking around town, cycling or driving and don’t have a map on your dashboard.
Apple Maps already supports this, so it’s just a new option for those who like to use Google Maps.
