On the IPhone I can navigate using my contacts. It seems that this isn't possible in carplay mode.

    Hi @Akman

    You can add contacts to your Siri Shortcuts then when in CarPlay mode you can just say Hey Siri Drive to Bill Smiths.

    I know, but it seems that I have to make a shortcut for every contact.

    TomTom claims: "make a navigationtsystem from your phone". They also advertising that you can clone it to your carplay screen, but that's not completly correct.

    Things I found so far missing on carplay:
    • Cannot make a wide right bar
    • Cannot use contacts
    • Quickly show your route on a map with traffic jams.
