    Hi all, i just changed my car to an Audi Q2. CarPlay is working almost perfectly with my iPhone 7 (ios11.0.3) apart from one niggly issue with Maps. When i connect to CarPlay and open the Maps app I'm immediately shown a route to the same place no matter where I am in the country? This location is not in My Favourites, saved as a location, or associated with any of my Contacts?



    any ideas appreciated, I have also sent a "Report Issue" to Apple

    I had a similar problem but it was pulling the location from my next appointment on my calendar. Another user suggested this and it worked. Might be worth giving it a try.

    oh thank ****, I really thought I was the only one :)

    had a look at Settings > Privacy > Location Services > System Services > Frequent Locations (i have Significant Locations?) and this particular location is listed as having 35 visits since July 2017!!!! it is located about 1km from my home address,

    am going to disable the significant locations option and see whats happens? might also turn off

    Location based alerts
    location based Apple ads
    location based suggestions

    thanks again for the help

    You can clear the significant locations and start fresh - takes a couple of days to build up. I wonder why Apple changed frequent to Significant but then again.
