    Default Google maps on Apple Carplay question

    When I use the application in my car, the arrow and route shows as it would appear in relation to my position and does not show the route always facing up/forward.

    When travelling in the right direction its not a problem, but very confusing when going the other way! How do I change that? I can't seem to find the setting. I know on normal GPS you select something like "map always on top" .

    Help please

    Just because we differ does not make either one of us wrong.

    I like most things with wheels...

    Are you talking about the arrow Johan? If so, yes.

    What happens if you tap the arrow? On mine, it controls the map orientation.
