I'll state it here first....I really hope the event was kept to the couple of items listed so they can add more before full release in the Fall. Like, "Let's not take up any time talking about DCE for the entire USA so we can focus on the VR headset." ;)

Looks like the rumored lock screen map update didn’t happen.

WARNING!!!!!

All of my saved/favorited locations have disappeared in Maps on iOS 17. I can still see them on my macOS 12 Maps app but I'm not sure if updating to iOS 17 has nuked them behind the scenes in the cloud or not.

You have been warned.


Edit: Seems like it needed some sync time. All of my favorites are back.

Bah…they’re there somewhere in the cloud…hah!

For me, even if they’re not, I don’t have enough saved to matter. I think..::

So...a wide release of Look Around for the rest of the US...what do we think? I remember us speculating that it might be tied to the headset. Having seen it now...I'm doubting it. Maybe it's just me, but since the headset is AR and not VR...I'm not so sure tying a Look Around release to it makes much sense.

That aside, offline maps is great, so looking forward to that! And the contour map on watchOS looks like it'll be pretty cool!

Somewhere
I too am experiencing the same thing. Not sure where to find the offline maps, and don't see a reference to it at all...
Just installed iOS 17 but I don’t see a way to download maps offline.

Checked Maps settings, Preferences panel, Map type card, and specific POIs.

Found it! Not sure if it wasn't there at first or what, but here we are:

Open Maps
Pull up from the bottom if not prompted to download
Click the icon in the top right
Select Offline Mapse
Thanks, just appeared on my device, although it says it's not available in my region (I'm in DFW).

This is the maximum area that we are allowed to download. Looks like it's based on area size and not on estimated download size.

Waze has had one for a decade and it’s invaluable.

It’s dangerous for your eyes to dart between the dash and the phone display.
Do you mean the dash that is right in front of you where you should be looking anyway??

The phone or screen off to the side is the one that should only take a glance or be in your peripheral vision (with sound prompts as needed) to advise on upcoming turns or hazards. Having one's speed on a screen/phone has NEVER made sense to me...even with the argument around warning you to stay within the speed limit. If one is that oblivious to how fast they are or should be driving, I question if they should even be driving in the first place (yes...I may take driving properly WAY too seriously...😇)
