New Apple maps

Post by Anduain » Tue Jul 20, 2021 1:09 pm

Over here we now have the "new" Apple maps, display is excellent, much easier to read on the id3 and of course directions are great in the HUD.

However, I was wondering, has anyone seen any news regarding the iD light and AR working with Maps in the future? It's surprisingly handy in unchartered locations.

I worry that the closed nature of iOS may prevent it, but looking for some positive news !

It might require updates from VW, from Apple, or both - not heard anything about it.

Same for Android Auto and Google.

Excuse my ignorance, but on Apple maps is the charging integration built into it? So you can either see charging options or the navigation works out where you would need to stop on long journeys? Thanks

I just ask it to navigate to the charger location that I know I want to get to, it doesn’t yet support EV chargers as an en-route “stop”.
