How to Customize Apple Maps Navigation Alerts in watchOS 5 on Apple Watch

Unlike before, you can get Apple Maps alerts depending on the type of your navigation on your Apple Watch in watchOS 5. It's a better way to avoid the unwanted navigation alerts. Let me demonstrate how it works.

watchOS 5 has got some well thought out improvements. And, one of them is the ability to ideally customize Apple Maps navigation alerts on Apple Watch running watchOS 5.

So, depending on the type of navigation, you can configure the settings to get only the needed alerts. And keep away the ones that are of no use! For instance, if you are walking, you can configure the watchOS to get notifications only for it.
