A cellular watch can dial emergency numbers without needing an active contract. That’s one reason I splashed the extra cash, but didn’t buy a contract for it.
Edit: From https://support.apple.com/en-gb/guide/watch/apd4ea933124/watchosIn some countries and regions, international emergency calling works even if you haven’t set up cellular service on the watch. See the watchOS Feature Availability website to learn which countries and regions are supported.
collin said:I love the street light icons in the intersections. Makes judging distance to a turn so much easier. But my only issue is that i can't find a way to set that it to always uses the fastest route. I have a number of places that i go that are quicker if i take a toll road. But apple maps always works so hard to make me navigate around them. Even if i change the route at the start, by the time i get there, it has updated to navigate around the toll road normally adding time to my trip.
Please give me a setting that always picks the fastest route.
Identifying the correct destination is definitely a weak area.
plus why does the new version make it so hard to swap from overview to turn by turn!? There used to be a nice giant one tap at the top. Not so now. Try zooming in a little on overview and then getting back to turn by turn at a junction; too many taps of tiny buttons. Awkward.
I can’t stop myself, I have to contribute my opinion.
Keystone is the real villain here. Google’s auto-update mechanism that has root privileges and can change any file anywhere on my system at any time without my permission. Sure, what could go wrong with that!??
Back in 2017 I warned colleagues about the risk of it going wrong and linked to a page of Keystone clear-out instructions. See if you’re infected and what it’s been up to with:
$ defaults read com.google.Keystone.AgentThere are standalone/non-auto-updating versions available if you really need Chrome for testing/compatibility purposes.
