Have a vehicle with CarPlay? Since you’re in and out of your car/van/truck all day, every day, we wanted to make ServiceM8 more accessible and easier to use in this space, safely, so you can work smarter in between jobs.

With CarPlay, you can:

See your Schedule

See jobs scheduled to you, today.

Tap to Call

Tap ‘call’ to start a call to the Job Contact.

Text clients that you’re On-the-Way

Send an On the Way text to the client (including an auto-calculated ETA) — it will then switch over to navigate you to the job address.

You can navigate to site using Apple Maps, Google Maps, or Waze — to choose, set your default navigation app with ServiceM8 on your iPhone in Settings > ServiceM8 > Navigation App.

All this makes it easier to stay aware of your schedule, keep you on track, and provide great communication and service for your clients.

CarPlay is available now — to get it, update to the latest version of the ServiceM8 app on the App Store. It also requires:

  • An iPhone 6s or later.
  • iOS 14.0 or later.
  • A vehicle which supports CarPlay.

Most CarPlay vehicles require that you plug your iPhone in with a USB cable. After installing the latest ServiceM8 app, and connecting your iPhone to your car via USB, the ServiceM8 app icon will appear in your CarPlay display.
