I've never done this because I don't mind them but if you turn off notifications it shouldn't notify you.

Well, see, the thing is although I detest having the original notification pop up whenever I get into my car, I don't mind at all when banners from Maps show up giving me directions and im in the music app or sending a text. Turning off Notifications for the Maps app seems like it would disable that.

I usually don’t read the notifications while driving. I prefer to listen to voice. You could turn off Significant Locations in Privacy> Location Services> System Services. I’m pretty sure if you turn that off you won’t get suggestions because Siri doesn’t know where you go.

I have a feeling you're going to tell me that you like knowing where you've been 😂

I’m with OP, I got these when leaving as well. They are based on my predicated destination and are mostly wrong. That is kind of annoying, but I hadn’t tried to turn it off. I suspect it’s not maps though, this is based on the predictive learning stuff, maybe in Siri?

I hate this. Can’t figure out how to get rid of it permanently. Please help.

That may be a five year old article, but it worked for me! My phone was reminding me to head to work everyday, I'm very happy to turn this off, thanks so much!
