Anyone Use Apple Maps for Routing?

Sun Sep 12, 2021 6:32 am

I was searching around for the best EV navigation app and discovered that Apple Maps not only can route you but do so based on chargers that only work with our cars, factor in terrain, current battery charge and weather. How cool is that? Has anyone used it? I tried to at the dealership when we got the car yesterday but I guess with everything going on I couldn’t focus enough to get it working.

I watched a few minutes of an Apple YouTube video talking about the feature and in the background was BMW and Ford logos…so it must work.

Oh…what app do you use for longer trips that require a stop for charging and the like? Driving home from the dealer, I thought the i3 map on the professional screen was actually pretty high quality. I understand you can set it up with the range ring and showing available charging stations…just haven’t gotten any “cockpit” time getting acquainted with everything yet.

Well that sucks… No it didn’t work and just my 3rd day with the car I’m still head down learning everything. I’ll look back on your post BL and if I find out I’ll post.
