LaunchNavigator is not recognizing google maps on iOS

Using Ionic 4 with Capacitor version 5.0.4

Since upgrading to Capacitor, launch navigator no longer recognizes google maps.

I definitely have google maps installed on my iOS device.

When I run the following code:

constructor(private launchNavigator: LaunchNavigator) {}
ngOnInit() {
    const availableApps = await this.launchNavigator.availableApps();

it returns a JSON object that shows all the different map apps and their availablilty. apple_maps is true, but google_maps is false.

Any ideas why this isn’t working?

i’m having the same issue, but using ionic 5 without capacitor

Hi, did you find any solution?

Anyone that finds this looking for the solution, you need to add this into your Info.plist
