Porsche Taycan Gains Support for Apple Maps EV Routing

Porsche today announced that Taycan models in the United States are adopting Apple Maps EV routing in CarPlay, a feature that will direct Taycan owners to nearby electric vehicle charging facilities.

The Apple Maps EV Routing option will allow Taycan users to plan travel routes that include stops for charging. Prior to now, Taycan owners had to exit out of ‌CarPlay‌ in order to create a route that included charging stops.

Taycan vehicles include the Porsche Charging Planner, designed to optimize stops based on the anticipated state of charge upon arrival to a destination, traffic conditions, and average speed, but ‌Apple Maps‌ EV Routing is now available as an alternative for those who use ‌CarPlay‌.

‌Apple Maps‌ EV Routing uses real-time vehicle information to help customers get to their destination, with charging stops recommended when necessary. ‌Apple Maps‌ analyzes elevation changes along a route and other factors to determine when to suggest a charging stop, and if the vehicle's battery gets too low, it will provide a route to the nearest compatible charging station.

Porsche says that ‌Apple Maps‌ EV routing is available to U.S.-based Taycan owners who have installed the latest My Porsche app on their iPhones.

Is that a joke? Do you have a Tesla? Tesla infotainment and routing is near perfect.

Whilst I prefer CarPlay overall it has to be said Tesla's system is not complete garbage. Regardless of everyone's opinions on CarPlay vs OEM OS, Apple Maps vs. OEM routing, Tesla has the best system responsiveness out of all of them -- it's iPad level fast for most functions. I'm hoping next generation CarPlay changes this so that we can drive cars without ever interacting with the built in OS.

Say more about Tesla's "garbage" routing. What's wrong with it? I'm curious. I have no opinions since I don't have an EV (only rode in one once).


ah yes, 'near perfect', eh?


but aside from this, the UI is simplistic and lacking many features of a modern GPS system. it's like a 2005 era tomtom.
