Why doesn’t this shortcut work?

Hi all…

Having some issues with running a shortcut when I’m using CarPlay.

The shortcut works flawlessly on my phone and does everything except show the directions when on CarPlay.

What do I need to do to get this to work?


This Lifehacker article uses a set-up like that, but without the SMS action. Does it work in CarPlay if you don’t have the SMS action, and just try it with the address and show directions actions?

I’ve tried it without and it also doesn’t work with CarPlay.

It does work on the phone just not when triggered when I’m using CarPlay.

Did you try exactly what was in the article with the dictation and Google Maps to see if that worked? I’m wondering if it might be an Apple Maps specific quirk.

Note I don’t have a car with CarPlay so I can’t personally test any of this. :man_shrugging:

I did…

From some further research it seems like it’s a bug in Shortcuts presently.

Hopefully they’ll fix it soon!
