Can Siri Give Me Directions Using Google Maps? Yes!
Let’s face it, Google Maps has far superior turn-by-turn directions than does Apple Maps. For those who drive a lot, Siri comes in handy for simple hands-free driving. While Apple Maps is decent, it’s certainly does not provide the quality of turn-by-turn directions that Google Maps does. Well, there is a very simple way to get Siri to give you directions using Google Maps. Here’s How:
Say to Siri
“Hey Siri, give me Directions To Wrigley Field (or wherever you want to go) “via Transit” The via transit part is the key here.
This used to bypass Apple Maps all together with a list of transit apps to pick from (including Google Maps). But things have slightly changed. Now Apple Maps will now open but you will see lower on the page “Transit Directions Not Available” then “View Routing Apps”.
In the picture below we are asking Siri to give us direction to Wrigley Field.
1. Click “View Routing Apps low on the screen
2. Choose Google Maps From The List Of Options:
3. Tap on the Route next to Google Maps and voila. Google Maps will open and you can do turn by turn directions.
