It keeps wanting me to review everywhere I go; how to stop it?

    To keep it as simple as possible...

    For my second job, I work as a delivery driver. So that precludes needing to keep navigation going to hop from place to place to make my deliveries. My issue/gripe with the Maps application, is that it incessantly wants me to "review" a place like as if I was going there for some special occasion, rather than let me go ahead and navigate to the next destination. Considering this happens on every phone that I have tried using as of late to get through this work, this is definitely a problem with the Maps application. And because Google would rather go bankrupt than admit fault in anything, I find myself having to ask here, in hopes that someone has figured out how to make the app cut that crap out.

    So, what do I do to get it to stop being such a prick about letting me just see the maps and get on with it?

    It's not a notification persay. It's that every time I am trying to go back to the map to go enter or speak a new address or destination, it's still wanting me to review the last destination. So, I'm not sure that would apply.

    Can't say I've had your issue but, I do get notifications when I get to a certain place such as a restaurant or a store....it wants me to review it even though I am not in the map app.

    I'll keep searching, but hopefully someone can shed some light on this. Sounds like a very annoying issue for sure :(

    Try going into Maps Settings then go to Notifications then Your Contributions and see what is switched on.

    In particular, 'Questions about places', and 'Rate and review places'.

    Huh. Questions about places was definitely turned off, but I noticed "rate and review" was on. Too bad that I just finished my day there for now, so I'd probably have to wait until next week before I'll be able to see if that makes a difference. But I do believe that might actually do it. :thumbsupdroid:

    Nope. Even with that setting, it still wants me to review every destination I navigate to, which delays me looking up the next address when running deliveries.o_O
