    Hi Erik,

    Thank you for your post/feature request. 

    Before filing this feature request, more details would be appreciated. For example in terms of workflow and benefit, we would like to know how the addition of this feature improves your workflow and app experience.

    This helps to ensure that if this feature is added to the app, it is as you expected to look and engage with.

    Please let me know and if you have any other questions.

    Regards

    Stephan

    Hello
    I would also like to see this feature. It would benefit myself, and the staff in my office.

    The largest benefit would be safety. Our staff use the app with custom made Maps that show where our operations are, and are constantly needing to review them while on the road and while navigating to the sites. Having the ability to display the map within your vehicles, dashboard would be much safer than having a tablet mounted.

    Second benefit would be increasing productivity as it would allow our operators to navigate using the Maps within the vehicles seamlessly

    Same request for CarPlay integration.  I would like to use Avenza maps (Benchmark in particular) on a motorcycle.  The vibration of a handlebar mount kills the anti-vibration mechanism in iPhone cameras, so I have an CarPlay display that I attach to the bike, keeping the expensive phone in my pocket.  This works well with Google Maps and Gaia GPS, but I would prefer to use Benchmark on Avenza.

    Hello. Supporting the request. Modern vehicles commonly have a screen with connectivity with Carplay. Having access to Avenza on the vehicle’s screen through Carplay would be a logical and significant improvement for Avenza. For info, I mostly use Avenza when driving through remote parts of Australia, using dowloaded topo maps (or other) where no other detailed mapping is available. Thanks Avenza for a very useful product.

    My use case is navigation and tracking my route so I can find my way back on forest roads, basically what GaiaGPS does, just using Avenza since it’s stable.

    Also if the follow up question is why not use your phone? It’s illegal and my car has a bigger screen that’s easier to read.

    I agree. As we travel the back country with our jeep it would be great to be able to use Avenza Other mapping programs require cell service and don’t have the same awesome abilities of Avenza

    I am enthusiastically supporting this feature request.  CarPlay and Android Auto devices are starting to become widely available for motorcycles and other backcountry vehicles (see Carpuride, PoDoFo and others).  OnX Maps and GaiaGPS are supporting this technology, which is a gamechanger for motorized backcountry travelers.  The use case is that the apps on a multifunction device like an iPhone or Android Phone are much more feature-rich than single-function devices like Garmin Zumo, etc.  But phones are typically delicate, hard to read in direct sunlight, and too small for live tracking while traveling.  Having the phone apps for navigation like Avenza viewable on a Carplay or Android Auto display device is soon going to be widely expected.

    I would also like to request Apple CarPlay functionality. Then I could utilise my $120 worth of maps I have purchased for National Park exploration.
