    I reported this but wondering if you all noticed it to. Maps used to show "Home" at the top of the history list. It would also tell you proactively how many minutes to get "Home" as a notification. Same for "Parked Car" (relies on BT). Show Parked Car is not under settings/maps anymore.

    None of this is working for me.

    Just opened mine and it shows both.

    Home is right there at the top...but I'm at work, so maybe it knows from previous trips that it should be there? I'll check more closely to see if it doesn't show on some trips.

    Bottom of the Maps menu in Settings...second item up from the bottom..."Your Car"..."Show Parked Location"...it's there for me as well.

    Yeah none of this is showing up for me anymore either. The Maps Destinations widget is also not working. It says I need to turn on Significant Locations. However, I already have this turned on and have since iOS 9. Toggling it on and off doesn’t seem to do anything.

    I'm having a hard time believing the difference would be my 7+ versus you guys on the 7....weird.

    Home and Work suggestions work fine for me too and have throughout the developer preview period. They're actually much more useful than ever, due to improved traffic information and really accurate ETA information. If I'm going to drive in rush hour I usually check it quickly to see which one of the several routes home/to work is going to be faster that day.

    Do you have frequent locations turned on - I believe it is needed in order to do what you are talking about. setting, privacy, system services, frequent locations

    Ok, Show Parked Car Location is there now. I swear it wasn't before, but that doesn't seem like something that would come and go, so I am an idiot for not seeing it. I am not getting the Home or Parked Car location in Maps though. I got so used to this pre-beata.

    If it was there before, it should have been there now. Check the post just above to check your settings as well.

    btw...I never changed any settings on my phone when I loaded the beta...it just worked...

    Same. I just missed it I guess trying to figure out why these two things aren't working. I never changed any setting too. My Maps is REALLY buggy with the current beta. Crashes all the time.

    Could be an inconsistency caused by a bug, or one thing I noticed on my phone, is that my home address was wiped from "my contact" upon updating to the beta. Perhaps the iCloud server didn't sync my contact data or whatever and it was corrupted and deleted.

    I have the same issue with the widget and maps. I turned off and back on significant locations. I checked the "me" contact and all is well. I have a ton of saved frequent locations. Just installed beta 5 and still doesn't work. Hasn't yet on my 7+ for any beta. Suggestions appreciated.

    I was finally able to get this fixed by doing a Reset All Settings. I also did a Reset All Network Settings first but that didn't seem to have any effect. Reset All Settings got the widget and the frequent location suggestions in the Maps app working again as soon as I allowed location services. Very annoying to have to go through and redo all my settings. But, that did fix the issue.

    Thanks. Yesterday I tried resetting just Location & Privacy settings (avoid the pain of all settings). It no longer gives me the "Enable Significant Locations". But now it says I need to add Home & Work. So I deleted those, rebooted the phone, re-added them. Even reset the frequent locations history. Still says the same thing to add home & work but I'm traveling on the West Coast so maybe when I get home (East Coast) it'll work -- probably doesn't think I want to go to either place which is 3k miles away. Stay tuned.

    Same behavior here. I'm on 11.1 but I had this bus since iOs 11.

    My Maps widget and Significant Locations suggestions within Maps are working properly, but since I set up my iPhone X a couple of weeks ago, I am not getting Maps lock screen notifications (directions/travel time to Home, for example) when I connect to my car's Bluetooth. Is this happening to anyone else?

    This worked for me. Had the same problem as you, it was asking me to turn on significant locations, which were already turned on. Resetting Location data fixed the issue - it even figured out my home and work locations.
