    I would like to change the Home location in Maps. The current Home location is some clinic for some reason, there's also a red pin on this location as well. I have my home address inputted correctly in the Contacts app. However, everytime I try to get Directions to a new location, I notice that Maps calculates the directions from this weird clinic. How can I change it so that my home address shows up as 'Home'?

    If you type your home address into Maps does the pin drop onto this clinic? If it does then Apple has the incorrect location data for your address. You can use Maps to report a problem to Apple but good luck getting them to change it. I have the same problem and have reported once a month or so for over a year and it's still not fixed.

    Okay I just tried typing in my address in Maps, and now I see the red pin next to my home address. I'm not seeing that weird clinic anymore.

    The only thing now is, when I type in directions, it doesn't label my home address as 'home'. The only option available is 'Directions from 'Current Location'.... better than before I guess. I wonder if Apple actually fixed this under the hood for me?
