Since the introduction of iOS 14, the "Time to Leave" notifications for upcoming calendar events have not been firing.

Googling reveals threads about this across the last several major iOS revisions, though no proposed fixes have helped.

Context:
- Calendar accessed via CalDAV outside iCloud which worked fine on iOS 13;
- Events have physical addresses saved to them;
- "Time to Leave" is the alert setting for the event;
- Notifications are allowed for Calendar;
- Calendar's location services are allowed;
- Issue has persisted across two devices (iPhone 11 Pro with iOS 14 upgrade, then iPhone 12 Pro out of the box, set up as new);
- General -> Reset -> Reset Location and Privacy has not helped.

I'm at a loss. Any suggestions?

You also need to enable Location->System Services->Location Based Alerts.

I think they made this change in 14 or 13, can't remember.

Forgot to mention that this is also enabled.

Any other thoughts? So strange.

Oh, then I don't know. Those settings are all I know that's needed to get that function working. Could be bugged. I've seen this not working before due to OS bugs.

When you enter the address, do you see the maps thumbnail created in the invite? If so, then I would think it's a bug and will get fixed eventually.

I do see the map thumbnail, yes. That was my thought as well -- I guess there's always hope for 14.5 which should be very soon from the sounds of things, but 14.1-14.4 didn't change anything. Who knows.

same problem here. time to leave doesn't show up although it is activated by default. Another issue: iCloud Push Mail on iOS doesn't work.... hopefully expecting iOS 14.5.
