TV Maps pairs with a very stripped-own iOS app that lets you pass directions you’ve selected on the Apple TV to an iOS phone, which then can open the Maps app in iOS. The apps are bundled so that you can purchase the pair either via the iOS or tvOS App Store and get the complementary app.
While TV Maps isn’t a shattering, landmark use of tvOS, it’s useful and fun. If you have children who like exploring virtual streets or the planet, it’s a particular joy that lets them plot their own journeys.
