In addition to all of the watchOS 5 features announced last week, another small but useful enhancement has been found in the beta by 9to5Mac that will allow users to gain better control over which navigation notifications they receive on their wrist. Apple Maps has long provided a boon to Apple Watch users in the form of haptic feedback for walking and driving directions, especially now that Google has abandon its watchOS Google Maps app, which never provided the same level of notifications on the wearable device anyway. In watchOS 5, however, users will now have the benefit of turning off any specific notifications that they don’t want to receive while navigating. Turn alerts can be turned off for “Driving,” “Driving with CarPlay,” and “Walking” and another switch provides the ability to turn off the display of transit directions from appearing on the watch.
