Although Google has released its version of “Maps” for cars with Apple’s system, the Russian company is not yet a priority.
The videoblogger Valentin Petukhov told that this work is not being done.
Узнал, что прямо сейчас Яндекс не планирует релизить поддержку CarPlay для Навигатора. А все потому что текущая реализация не позволит сделать все фишки, которые уже есть в приложении.
С одной стороны – печально, с другой – ну жду тогда как положено чтоб с Алисой и парковками.

Representatives of “Yandex” confirmed this information to and explained that the “chips” in question are the integration of “Navigator” with “Alice”, that is, voice control, which in CarPlay is entirely tied to Siri’s own “smart assistant”.
[perfectpullquote align=”full” bordertop=”false” cite=”” link=”” color=”” class=”” size=””]Right now we are not developing Navigator for CarPlay. We develop the “Navigator” first of all as a smart assistant on the road, with voice control and with “Alice”, which, unfortunately, this cannot be implemented in CarPlay. Like many other things, to which users of the Navigator have become accustomed, for example, an online update and notification of the situation on the roads or a search for parking.[/perfectpullquote] [perfectpullquote align=”full” bordertop=”false” cite=”” link=”” color=”” class=”” size=””]We are working to make navigation in cars easier and more accessible, for this we are developing the Yandex.Auto multimedia system, which has already been installed in more than 50 thousand cars.[/perfectpullquote]
CarPlay is a system from Apple that allows you to show an adapted interface of applications from iOS on the on-board computer screen. In the iOS 12 update, the company added support for third-party applications, including car navigation, and Google was one of the first to adapt its navigation application.
” Yandeks.Avto ” – a multimedia system, which is built in place of the standard onboard vehicle system: on the screen with touchscreen displays road map from the “Navigator”, can include radio or music via “Yandeks.Radio”, watch the weather and ask questions, “Alice” .
In the majority of cars car sharing “Yandex.Drive” (its fleet includes more than 4 thousand cars) there is a system “Yandex. Auto.” In August, Roman Chernin , head of Yandex “geoservices,” said that 45,000 of these devices were installed in cars, but according to contracts with car manufacturers, it is planned to install Yandex.Auto at 500,000 onboard devices by 2020.
