Copilot GPS APP with Android auto?

good day folks,

quick question;

is it possible to have the Copilot GPS app to display on my dash screen ? 2018 F250, and with Android auto the default map is Google but I can't change it in my phone or the truck setting.

thanks!

JL

On my 2021 F250 you can use Android Auto with whatever maps service you want, as long as its downloaded on your smartphone. I have a Samsung S9+ and have Waze & Google Maps.
I download different map apps to find a more intuitive one that I like.
When you plug your USB phone cord into the console port of your truck it should take you to your default map. Than you have the option to have apps displayed and choose again whatever you have downloaded.
Maybe update your Android Auto.

I have a few different map apps downloaded on my samsung smart phone as well but when I plug the phone to the truck I can only see google map, even when searching for phone apps in android auto nothing comes up. It could be some settings on my phone, I'll keep trying now that I know it's feasible, thanks!

I believe apps on your phone need to be compatible with Android Auto.
If not, even though they work on your phone, they won't show up on your truck.

I don't have an Android, but with an iPhone the same issue happens with Apple Car Play.
If the app isn't written to work with Car Play, it won't display.
The waze app was a good example for awhile until they released a new version that worked with Car Play (this was a few years ago).

you are right sir! Copilot is not compatible with Android auto.

Never had luck with my copilot app. Mine was for iphone. It led me down a road with a bridge about 4k less then my gvwr and another with tight residential back roads with very low trees.
Yes, it was all set up correctly.
