    Hi guys, I noticed on my friends phones that at times it will tell them "it will take you 9 minutes to drive to _____"

    I've not once seen that on my phone...how do I get that activated?

    It happens automatically. It usually shows up a week or two after you start using iOS 7. Basically, Location Services tracks your Frequent Locations and when you travel to them. Once you've established a pattern, you'll start seeing the travel info in Notification Center.

    Obviously, Location Services and Frequent Locations need to be enabled.

    Not sure how to troubleshoot. Do you have a regular routine?

    You can check out your Frequent Locations at:

    Settings > Privacy > Location Services > System Services > Frequent Locations

    You can see what locations are saved and what times you were there.

    Do you have a routine, as in, you travel from home to work and back around the same time, Monday through Friday?

    And how can you make sure all that crap is switched off? or switch off the totally useless top pull down thing, as it just gets in the way

    Disable what you can in settings. There are various controls for notification center, control center, and privacy ( in particular location settings there).

    Make sure you have Show Traffic enabled in Apple Maps
    And bookmark a Home location.

    Don't listen to them, it's the NSA guy stalking you and telling you to leave earlier so he can trap you! ;)

    what do you mean by bookmark? I have my home and work address in my contact record. Beyond that you have to add a seperate bookmark in Maps as well?

    It's not available on an iPhone 4 or on iPad. Only iPhone 4s and later.

    ----------

    Have you reset your settings/restored your phone since you first updated to iOS 7?

    Its not a question of how long you've owned your iPhone. Its how many time you've frequented the same places at the same time or times of day. After it collects enough info it will start showing upon your notifications.

    What's the pull down thing call so I can disable it. And does mean it will stop trying to find all the info that goes in to.

    I dont mind the short cut menu (or "control centre" as apple mis-named it)

    ----------

    Because you cant get email on a proper phone with buttons! duh.

    Do you mean spotlight search or notification center? You can't really disable either one, but you can disable what goes in each one. For spotlight you can basically turn off almoat all of the places it can search on. For notification center you can turn off various sections this appear in it and turn off the apps from putting their notifications there. You can also disable it from being accessible from the lock screen (and similarly do the same with control center, unless you want it there).

    Must be notification centre, it needs to go, annoys me while playing games sometimes. How do I remove it from completely appearing.

    Didn't realise spotlight was still there, thought it was also gone. No real need for it, now it's back it 2 fingers. It's a phone, how much searching do you need to do, it's not like it's OSX!

    Short cut menu is also fine (control central - stupid name).

    Can't disable notification center. It's a fairly fundamental smartphone feature these days so it's prertty much there across the board on smartphones by default.

    Sounds like you need a Motorola Razr Flip phone and a Nintendo DS.
