When it comes to navigation applications, it is almost impossible to find one as complete as Google Maps. This Google service does much more than guide us on a journey and now Apple users will be able to take full advantage of these features.
Google today announced the launch of Google Maps for the “CarPlay dashboard” service. Additionally, one of Apple’s most important products – the Apple Watch – receives a new application from Google’s service.

If you have a car with CarPlay, you can now use Google Maps
With the launch of iOS 13 last year, Apple introduced a feature called “CarPlay dashboard” that is very useful for anyone who has a car with this system infotainment. It allows the use of several applications at the same time on your car screen.
Many months later, Google finally launched its popular Google Maps for the platform. Starting today, you’ll be able to control your music, view your calendar and more without losing your Maps directions.
As expected, the screen will split to accommodate the information for the various applications you need while traveling. Therefore, your music or your commitments will be revealed without having to leave Google Maps.
Apple Watch receives a new application for Google Maps
Even if you don’t have a car with CarPlay, the Apple Watch can now be a strong ally for your travels. This is because Apple’s popular smartwatch will also be entitled to a new Google Maps application.
This will show you all the indications you need for your trip directly on your wrist. To do this, you only have to define a destination on your iPhone and you can continue the journey only with the Apple Watch.
Google announces that this application will be available for the Apple Watch in the coming weeks. Therefore, you will have to wait a little longer to be able to enjoy this latest novelty.
