Perfect timing as I was shuttling some out-of-town guests around some landmarks in an unfamiliar part of town. Car Play just blanked out the screen. OEM nav fortunately had no such issues.

And to think I drove a delivery truck all around the Chicago area successfully, pre GPS. Now I can barely get out of my driveway without mapping an e-route.

Gadget addiction is a thing, kids. Use your brain instead.

Why bring em back, really?
Elaborate. I find Apple Maps navigation to be superior over Google Maps. It does have its oddities, such as choosing routes with U-turns at intersections, which are not permitted in Canada on most highways.

Because it's a good mapping system that's well integrated into the OS. Any other questions?

Maybe Apple doesn’t want you to visit the theme parks and get on the roller coaster? I wonder if that has to do with anything… ?
