Like a helpful hand from heaven, Maps on Carplay now shows approaching cross streets.
This makes it easier to judge when a turn is coming up, or to know which street to cut down to make a shortcut to get where you’re going.
I used it yesterday when I cut down Floyd Ave to get to the post office near my house here in Denver, Colorado. Sometimes, we humans are smarter than machines, and in this case I knew turning on the street before the one Maps always tells me to go down is faster, and it was.
Because it’s now labeled, I didn’t have to semi-guess the street/watch my car’s progress on the map as I was driving, I just knew where to turn.
And thus the best of machines was blended with the best of the human brain to get me to the post office 45 seconds faster.
