ROADS by Porsche allows drivers to explore the world’s most epic routes. The app launched on the app store in November 2018, with maps and navigation powered by Mapbox, and already has a large community of ~85,000 drivers around the world who are driving, recording, and sharing their road trips. ROADS is not only for Porsche drivers, but anyone with a smartphone and a passion for driving.
To make it even easier to navigate their scenic route, drivers who own a CarPlay-enabled vehicle can now access the ROADS app directly from the infotainment screen in their car, in addition to their mobile device. The team behind the app has leveraged the Mapbox Navigation SDK’s CarPlay support for the latest version of ROADS. This integration provides drivers with a seamless experience across connected devices, and offers an easy, safe, and hands-free way to access the app’s routes and turn-by-turn guidance. You can also record your own route, while on the road.
To take your own scenic adventure, download the free ROADS by Porsche app, select a route and start navigating. If you drive a CarPlay-enabled vehicle, connect the phone to your car and follow the turn-by-turn navigation instructions directly on the car’s infotainment screen.
