Google Maps on the CarPlay dashboard:
On the CarPlay dashboard, users can switch or pause songs, rewind or fast-forward podcasts or audiobooks in their favorite media apps without having to leave Google Maps’s item-by-item navigation, or quickly view their schedules. Because the information is displayed in a split-screen view, the user can get the information they need while maintaining their focus on the road.
Google Maps on the Apple Watch:
With Apple Watch’s Google Maps app, users can easily navigate through cars, bicycles, public transportation or walking. Quickly get the expected arrival time and step-by-step navigate to user-saved destinations such as home or work, as well as other shortcuts specified in the app.
Google Maps is now available on the CarPlay dashboard for all CarPlay-enabled vehicles worldwide. In the coming weeks, Apple Watch’s Google Maps app will also be available worldwide.
