One of the biggest features of iOS 12 is the support for third party navigation apps on Apple CarPlay, with Google Maps and Waze as the two highlighted apps, the former has finally updated its iOS app to version 5.0, which will finally enable you to use it for navigation instead of the default Apple Maps.

In the case of Malaysia, Apple Maps may have improved slightly over the years, but it still doesn’t have as much destinations as Google Maps and lacks on-the-fly route suggestions.
