Apple CarPlay support

There is another radar app on the Apple App Store that has the ability to show radar data on your car's screen using CarPlay.

If I'm having to pay to buy that one, RadarScope is less useful & I'm less likely to keep paying for the Pro Tier 2 Radar Scope.

    Jason Tracy - I've recently learned my last comment wasn't completely accurate, as Apple recently changed how the process works. Developers can submit applications to Apple for their app to be approved for CarPlay support. We actually did submit an application for RadarScope, but unfortunately were rejected by Apple. They stated to us that only app's with a primary purpose of navigation are accepted. While RadarScope offers a GPS tracker and a mapbox layer, this is not enough to qualify for CarPlay.

  • Hi Jason Tracy,

    I'm not sure of what other radar based apps are currently available for Apple CarPlay. At this time, RadarScope is not available via CarPlay. I don't think most people are aware of this, but CarPlay support is only available via invite-only from Apple. If invited though, it's certainly something we would consider!

  • Here is the link to the app I saw. https://apps.apple.com/us/app/car-play-weather-navigation/id1673731295
    I'm surprised "byss mobile" got an Apple invite, I've never heard of them before now. Honestly, the more I look at it, the more scammy it appears.

    Thanks for the background information on Apple's policy with CarPlay, and your willingness to explore it.

  • I'd like to second this request. Here is another weather radar app with CarPlay support:

    Weather on the Way on the App Store (apple.com)

    The developer describes his experience a bit here:

    (1) Apple has finally allowed Weather Radar on CarPlay for my road trip app, Weather on the Way. Thanks to Reddit, it reached #3 in Weather charts. : apple

    Would love to see CarPlay support added!

  • I think the whole reason that Weather on the go was accepted is because like they said they want “navigation implemented” is there a way you could make a version called Radar Scope CarPlay and overlay a Apple Maps or Googlemaps? And make it’s have navigation? That would honestly be helpful as well and they would accept it most likely. I really don’t understand apple on this one anyway because why not allow apps while in park only like Netflix and Hulu etc 🤦🏻‍♂️. Just odd to me. But anyway, consider my suggestion. It would be nice to have a hi res radar like that with navigation inside it as well.

  • Likewise. I often drive long distances in Florida and would very much appreciate a car play enabled radar scope. I think this is worth pursuing, as there may be many others in the same situation.
