Has anyone else noticed how poor the Google Maps graphics on Android Auto are compared to the Google Maps graphics on Apple CarPlay? For example, the search box in "Auto" is always visible which causes your vehicle travel to always be displayed significantly off-center. The result is seeing more of the traffic history from where you already passed instead of where you are headed. Also, the traffic flow definitions (green, amber, and red) in Auto are much thinner than in CarPlay and not as easy to see. For these reasons, I purchased a used, non-activated iPhone 6S, pair it with my Galaxy S9+ hotspot and use Google Maps in CarPlay for my navigating needs.

I prefer Google just because you can skip to the next steps/turns. I like seeing beforehand the street where I should be turning, etc, with a map of it (not just a list).

I'm now using Apple maps because I prefer a few of the navigation features not available with Waze or Google, like "turn left at the next stop sign,." Also I appreciate more warning for the next step, e.g. after a turn, " in 1 mile turn right at the traffic light"

There are some Google advantages, such as better lane markings.

I use all three depending on the situation.

As a long haul Truck Driver, I use both.
Google maps navigation has a more realistic E.T.A.
Apple maps navigation has a persistent dedicated distance to go feature.
If Apple maps could dial down their E.T.A., I believe it would increase highway safety.
