R-Link 2: Google Maps and Waze available on Apple Carplay.

September 28th, 2018
GPS R-Link

As announced a few months ago during Apple’s presentation of iOS12, it is now possible to choose another navigation application that Apple Plans.

Indeed, you can benefit from Google Maps and Waze directly on the screen of your R-Link 2 using an iPhone (before that was possible via Android Auto).

To benefit 2 things are needed. First install iOS12 on your iPhone. And then update Google Maps and Waze via the Store to get the latest versions. And that’s all! Normally you should see the icons of the 2 applications on the screen of your R-Link 2.

I recall that Coyote also announced that the application will eventually be compatible with Carplay.

A very good news for iPhone owners.

    Yes very good news but it would be better if we could use full screen of RLink instead of this limited small view. Is it maybe possible to make it bigger?

    Thnx in advance

    With Android Auto this is possible by setting it in DevelopersMode. Didn’t find the option for Carplay jet unfortunaly.

  • Carplay: TomTom and Coyote now compatible – GPS R-Link :

    […] An opening that we find rather on the side of Google but that is not always possible with Android Auto (certainly it is possible with Waze but Waze belongs to Google….). Last year it was Google Maps and Waze who immediately broke into the breach (read the news). […]
