How can I set the options on Google Maps so it DOES NOT show driving time to home?

I need a map of a certain location to print on a brochure, don't want that on the map.

Thanks

You can disable location services or specific locations services by doing the following:
Go to Settings
Privacy
Location Services
System Services
Frequent Locations > Toggle OFF

This will stop the maps from "show driving time to home".

Good comment but need to improve it as it is specific to Google Map app in iOS.


If using Google Maps while signed into your account, try signing out. Further, launch Google Maps, tap Settings > About, Terms & privacy > Terms & privacy > Location Data Collection and toggle it to the off position.

Actually, signing off Google account will remove the locations of home and work already.

Ah, that makes sense.  I don't use Google Maps.  I guess I was referring to the iPhone's Maps app.
