If you’re jailbroken and want to get in on the action with Apple already confirmed ability to use third-party maps apps like Waze and Google Maps in CarPlay coming to iOS 12 later this year, you might want to get in touch with this action right now. But, first, you should check out a jailbreak tool called CarBridge because it’s awesome.
This tool is now available via carbridgetweak.com and costs $4.99 or Chariz.io on Cydia. CarBridge allows the running of all manner of things via CarPlay, regardless of any limitations that Apple has put in place before now.
This means you can use more than Google Maps or Waze and play Fortnite or watch Netflix/YouTube, or indeed run just about any app on your iPhone, right in the dash of your car.
CarBridge For iOS
While we’re never going to condone playing Fortnite in a car or watching Netflix/YouTube, being able to run something like Waze or Google Maps right now and without having to wait for iOS 12 to ship later this year is always going to get our attention.
Additionally, the tweak features the Portal app, which lets you control your connected iOS device’s interface using your head unit in third-party apps.
As for now, the CarBridge tweak is compatible with any jailbroken version of iOS from 10.0 to 11.4, which should cover most bases.
So, suppose your iPhone is recently jailbroken using Electra (you can still do it on iOS 11.4 beta three as Apple is still signing that firmware on iPhone X and iPhone 8/8 Plus). In that case, you should start working on using CarBridge, as this tweak has been in development for over a year now and delivers on what it says.
Apple’s CarPlay continues to gain traction. While this is unlikely to move the needle on CarPlay adoption, both jailbreakers and Apple now realize that the key to its success is being able to use more third-party apps while behind the wheel. This new tweak is a prime example of that, and we look forward to seeing what Apple offers for CarPlay users moving forward.
