Different look and feel
Apple uses CarPlay® User Interface templates to ensure that all CarPlay® apps have a similar look and feel, and screen elements that are familiar to the user. The TomTom Navigation app has been adapted to use these templates so that it can be made available via CarPlay®.
Note the following restrictions:
- The number of menu items is limited so we need to pick the most used menu items.
- Changing settings or using deeper level menu items is not allowed.
- Map interaction is limited while driving.
The GPS of the phone is used to track your vehicle as you drive. If you experience issues with your location as you drive, try placing your phone somewhere that allows it a good view of the sky.
Where to find the app in Apple CarPlay®
You may need to swipe to the second screen on your head unit.
You can set up CarPlay® with your iPhone either via Bluetooth® or a wired USB connection.
