One fantastic feature in Apple Maps that makes it easier to spot your car in crowded areas is the “Paused Car” alerts. But it can be inconvenient to get the Parked Car alerts from Maps on your iPhone, particularly if your car is parked in your garage or your office parking lot most of the time. I will now walk you through turning off the Parked Car alerts on your iPad or iPhone.
What are Parked Car alerts on iPhone?
Apple Maps’ Parked automobile function indicates where your automobile is right now. When your iPhone or iPad disconnects from CarPlay or the Bluetooth stereo system, this happens automatically.
The app is useful in public parking lots at shopping centers, hospitals, movie theaters, and other busy areas, as one might imagine. Fortunately, you can easily toggle the Parked Car Alerts on and off using the iPhone. To disable the parked car alert on your iPhone running iOS 17, follow these instructions.
How to disable Parked Car alerts from Apple Maps on iPhone
- Launch the Settings app.
- Scroll down and pick Maps.
- Go to the bottom of the page and toggle off Show Parked Location.
That’s all! Simple enough, huh?
Bonus: You may unpin your car’s location on Apple Maps as well. To use the pin that appears on the maps, just tap and hold down. This will remove the parked location from appearing in the iPhone Maps app, but it won’t completely eliminate the warnings.
