- Apple Carplay – useless in remote locations
Does Google Maps do offline routing now? It’s been a long while since I tried.
Don’t know if Here Maps works with Car play, I’ll try out it tomorrow when I’m in the car (I prefer Apple maps).
But you can download the whole of UK and other countries and it will do routing offline without access to the cloud.
I keep it on my phone as a back up.Posted 2 months agoP-JayMember
I’m really surprised you didn’t get any data when driving around all day. which network are you with?
It’s pretty faultless unless you’re starting with a poor/zero signal, it seems to download the bulk of it when you start, if you pass through a dead zone you lose traffic info, but it still works.Posted 2 months agoCougarSubscriber
With Google Maps, if you plot the route on Wi-Fi before setting off it will cache the data it needs. I’ve started using it extensively for the last year after declaring the car’s inbuilt satnav to be toilet, and also on holiday in the US a couple of years back, and not once has it complained about a lack of signal.
I too have Co-Pilot, but I’ve not felt the need to use it in ages.Posted 2 months agoCountZeroMember
I’ve been using TomTom on my iPhone for the last three, nearly four years, and that works with CarPlay. Not that I have a car with any inbuilt navigation to use it with, but should I replace my car with something a bit more up-to-date, then I’ll be able to take advantage of it.Posted 2 months ago
I used to use Here and CoPilot, but I can’t find anything to show if they’re CarPlay compatible, Wade and Sygic are, Waze is free, but Sygic is a subscription App, as is TomTom, but I’m happy to pay to get one of the best nav apps around.
