Google Maps Update Fixes Night Mode in Apple CarPlay

Published On October 10, 2018 | News


Google has deployed its latest update for its Google Maps app on iOS.

Update 5.2 fixes a commonly found bug with its night mode whilst in CarPlay mode.

Since its launch on Apple CarPlay, Google Maps was unable to switch to night mode. This meant that whilst using Google Maps on Apple CarPlay drivers were getting blinded by the daylight map tiles on their CarPlay display during nighttime driving.

The 5.2 update now fixes this issue, with night mode switching over as you expect.

Happy days for Google Maps users.
