    On my 42mm watch, I’ve had no issues. Except for Maps. I have cleared all recents and favorites from iPhone Maps. If I bring up Maps on the Watch from the apps screen it’s fine, ready to navigate or just view.

    But when it’s added to Glances, it always starts with a route to an old pin. One that I have deleted over and over from the iPhone. as well as the favorites/recents. I clear the route on Maps on the watch, but of course it has already paired and this old pin reappears as a recent on the iPhone again.

    I’ve powered the watch down and powered up again after removing Maps from Glances, ensuring all recents are gone from the iPhone, adding Maps again to Glances and it has the same annoying route.

    Minor but annoying. Am I missing something really easy to fix this?

    I think there's a feature where the Glance tries to predict where you might be going at this time and puts a pin there in anticipation. Is it your home or work or somewhere you regularly travel ("Frequent Locations")?

    Good question, since the pin in question is not far from my office in DC. I live in Arlington VA. Was not aware of the predictive aspect of Glance - if that’s an explanation. If so, I’m good just leaving Maps out of Glance. As before not a substantive rag, just annoying. But .. THX for the reply and the insight into Glance.
