But I find most of the others to be trivial and annoying to deal with, constantly stacking up in my notification tray and distracting me from other important notifications. (Note: This isn’t an issue for people who use iPhones.
Google Maps has a lot of notification options (between 40 and 54 nestled into 10 categories in the three phones that we tried out), and they’re all turned on by default.
No matter which Android phone you use, the Maps app lets you turn notifications off one by one.

But there’s a faster, easier way to filter all of those notifications if you use a phone that runs on Android 9 Pie software.
