Apple Maps In CarPlay Displays A Compass When Getting Directions

If you use CarPlay to get directions, you may have noticed the little compass that shows you which way you're headed. If you don't know where to find it, take a look at the image below...

The compass shows direction (N for North, S for South, E for East and W for West) in the top left corner of the maps screen. It is only seen when the Maps app is launched in CarPlay and when you're getting directions to some place. Notice if marked in red below.


  1. I would love to get an AppRadio 4 for my iPhone 6 plus
    but I have an external SiriusXM turner and the radio has no hookup for it (none that I am aware of)

    1. There is a composite AV input as well as an AUX input. Those would definitely work. Or are you trying to control the Sirius tuner from the head unit?
