    I've got haptics and sounds cranked all the way up, but am not getting taps on turn-by-turn navigation. Anyone else seeing this?

    I get them but I can't distinguish them.

    If you start the navi from your phone, could your phone put out verbal directions while the watch does haptic and display?

    The very little audio and sounds that the watch puts out was a surprise to me. I guess it would kill the battery. I.e. Siri never speaks, very little audio feedback sounds, etc.

    Default settings, or did you enable something?

    It was enabled by default for me as well, but I'm really not sure if I can tell the difference between the two types of turns. I haven't tried much though.

    One tap means straight on...

    Still trying to work out the rest!

    Yep. I did that on the way home from UPS this morning.

    EDIT: the "right" tap is 12 continuous taps, the "left" tap is 3 sets of 2 with a pause between each set.

    Fixed by turning on custom notifications in Watch app on phone (ie not mirrored phone settings), enabling all notifications, then restarting the Watch.

    For what, maps? Because I can't find that option for some reason... Just a choice to show in glances or not

    Nah the other ones. Reboot probably fixed the map issue by fixing sounds and taps.
