    Hi All,

    I am relatively new to Apple Watch. I have notice whenever I select a location from my recent lists, it always starts by giving me distance from "Home" location. This maybe because the recent location list was populated from Maps on my laptop to the iPhone while at "Home". Then when I select "Start" the watch corrects itself and give me the correct directions and distance from my current location.

    Is there a way to force AW to provide initial distance and driving time from my current location without having to select "Start"?

    Cheers,

    Donald Barar

    When you open the maps app on your watch, do you first hit the current location button on the bottom left so it will update where you are? I notice mine will use the last known location sometimes until I manually update or start a route and it checks.
