Book a ride

Book a ride. If you have Uber or any other supported ride-sharing or taxi-hailing app installed on your iOS device, you’ll see fare estimates and pick-up times when you tap the ride service tab in Google Maps. Just select a service to be taken directly to the corresponding app, all set for you to book your ride.

Search with Spotlight. You can use Spotlight search to find and directly view the places you recently looked at in Google Maps as well as the places you’ve saved in the app.

What is it about?

First up, the popular Apple Maps alternative now works on the CarPlay Dashboard mode. That will show your route in a split-screen view with other information including your music and more.

For those who...

  • Are looking for a comprehensive and free navigation app not from Apple
  • Enjoy the unique Street View feature
  • Heavily invested in Google's ecosystem

Not for those who...

  • Don't enjoy Google's interesting and unique UI choices
  • Prefer to stay in Apple's ecosystem

Why we love it

If you're looking for a free alternative to Apple Maps, this is the cream of the crop. While the interesting UI might not be for everyone, Google Maps is still arguably even better than Apple's own system and definitely worth a look - especially if you're well ingrained in other Google apps.
