The news today is that Apple has finally stopped trying to make Apple Maps happen, and will make Apple CarPlay function with third-party navigation apps like Google Maps and Waze with the latest iOS 12 update.
Apple Maps isn't almost as bad as it was when it first launched, but it's still behind the best efforts from competitors. Google's Android Auto, on the other hand, has always featured Google Maps. With CarPlay's support for Waze and Google Maps, we don't have to mount our smartphone awkwardly on our dashboard anymore, for fear of violating the Anti-Distracted Driving Act (is that still in effect?). Waze, meanwhile, is also from Google and includes crowdsourced traffic, accident, and incident reports.
Since Apple CarPlay launched in 2014, Apple iOS users have been forced to use Apple Maps for navigation.
Android Auto was announced back in 2014 and started off as essentially a smartphone projection system for your vehicle. Even so, it is a nice change of pace for Apple, which is known for its tight control over the apps that get the CarPlay treatment.
