    Question How to disable "x minutes to [address]" notifications
    Every time I get in my truck to drive to work, I get a notification on my Apple Watch telling me how many minutes it will take me to get to work. Vice versa when I go home. I disabled all Maps notifications using the Watch app on my iPhone, yet I'm still getting these notifications? What gives? How do I disable them?

    If you turned off ALL notifications for Maps, then you would not be receiving this notification. It sounds like you missed some setting somewhere. Maybe you should turn off those Notifications on the iPhone as well?

    Please backup. Everything has a life cycle, unexpected and warning free. Nothing will last as long as you want it to.

    They are most definitely all off under (in iOS) Watch > Notifications > Maps, but none of those settings sound relevant anyway as they only for turn alerts and stepping directions

    But at your suggestion, I just now turned off Notifications for Maps under iOS settings. We'll see if that works.

    This is Apple being Apple and trying to be helpful. When the iPhone notices a pattern to your travel based on time and location, it begins to provide that info. I get the same thing every morning when I head to work though I haven't saved my work address on the phone and same thing when I head to the gym at night.

    Oh, I get that, but I just don't want the notification. Bob's suggestion of disabling Maps notifications in iOS seems to have done the trick so far.

    The notifications can, and should, be turned off on the iPhone. If you want them, fine, but if you don't want them just turn them off. It's not really "Apple being Apple" at all.
