Default CarPlay Review

For those ones that are on the fence of getting Connect ($830 Option) or Connect Plus ($1300 Option) because of CarPlay, Engadget just released a review of it.

CarPlay Connect can use apple maps or app maps of an iphone via PCM? without navigation module and connect plus, will it use maps?

Yes you can use the iPhone Apple Maps on the PCM screen, using the data from your phone.

Did you think apple would support anything but their own product! Apple maps sucks.

the new PCM has Google Maps in the built in Sat Nav anyway, so you don't need the poor Apple Maps. the Carplay piece just gives you better integration and control with your iphone. If you're a spotify user, great, beyond that, can't really see that much to get excited over.

The new PCM with the google traffic and maps is the bits to get excited about

Cue in the reports of Macans in ditches and lakes due to horrible directions from Apple maps.
On a serious note, a friend of mine did get a ticket because he got caught making an illegal turn while following directions from his Apple maps app. He only uses Google maps now.

It's going to take me a few years to replace my Macan, but if by then the Macan still doesn't have Android Auto, I'm going to look elsewhere. I find it utterly ridiculous Porsche not supporting Android when every other automaker supports both.

1. Porsche said they are not supporting Android auto because it requires too much diagnostic data to be recorded by Google and they don't want to share. I have no issues with Porsche; it is with Google requiring diagnostic data. They are all about big analytics

2. The new PCM has Google Maps and Street view built in so I don't understand the concerns. Google maps is better and the new Navigation system in the Macan uses it without data so you get Appple Car play AND Google Maps integrated.
