Strange one here.


My wife has an iPhone SE 2020 with an Apple Watch 3. Since upgrading to iOS14 when she records an activity on her watch she no longer gets a map when she reviews her activity in the Fitness app on her phone. It was there before upgrading to iOS14 but not after.


What I've done.


  • Her watch hadn't been updated so I've updated her watch to watch OS7. Still no maps
  • By googling I've found advice regarding making sure locations services are set to "while using the app" in the privacy settings. Everything is enable and still no maps
  • My googling also suggested unpairing the watch and repairing. Did that too and still no maps

When recording an activity the GPS still records the distance properly but when you click on the map in the activity all you see is the green pin of the stating point. You don't get the route.


Has anyone come across this, any advice?

I have this exact same problem since going to ios14. I don't know what the answer is, so would in interested to know if anyone has a solution.  I read it is something to do with privacy settings, but I haven't changed anything, and they all look correct. I am wondering it is bug restricted to some countries. It also doesn't show historic routes on the map either.

Some commentary and a solution in the link. Involves resetting everything I think.

Well, that’s a bit of a pain. Will have to give it a go tonight and report back.

Surely they will release a proper fix? I can't be bothered doing all that and risk losing my data. I have found the apple watch so buggy for an apple device.
