New Traffic Conditions App?


For some reason the Moto X1 has started notifying me of traffic conditions, and it appears to heat the battery when it does. I don;’ want to know “traffic conditions”. How can I delete/disable/uninstall this great feature?


Hi @ckh

Do you have Location on?.

I do not keep Location active, but use it often and when I forget to turn it off I experience similar issues on my MXP.


i didn’t turn it on, but I did just turn it off. That may be it. A reboot may be necessary but that could fix the problem. Thanks

Keeping location off is a workaround…but not the primary solution. Notification is coming from Google… I have tried to switch it off to no avail…Google hides these settings in multiple layers.


Withdrew my post because you got me to thinking.

I have noticed that sometimes I get a notification that the app needs location information, and I can click “agree” or something similar and will either…

A) Be taken to Android settings.
B) Location will turn on and I continue on my path.

On my Moto X2 I swipe up from the bottom & it opens Google.
Open google’s 3 hash marks --> settings–> notifications–> your feed–>
commute & time to lea… switch it off!


I have the feed completely off and I still get these notifications. I also get notifications for stores and restaurants that I go to for rating them…can’t seem to switch them off.


Hi @amitl
Scroll further down and shut off anything that pertains to your dislikes.


I don’t understand…the feed is off…Google is still "feed"ing! Not sure what else I can shut off.


Hi @ckh and @amitl,

Please look in Maps > (hamburger menu) > Settings > Notifications and turn off everything you don’t want to see.


That is useful… And after I figured out that a “hamburger” was just 3 horizontal lines. it was easy. Thanks for the advice.


I understand I wasn’t totally thinking. How about in accounts and privale cy–>My activity and just below that–>Google activity controls.


hamburger = 3 horizontal bars = :menu:
the picture worth more than words
3 vertical dots = :dots:


I had traffic off, I still get traffic updates. I did have the ratings thing on…so I switched that off…will see if that stops it. I am not overly optimistic about shutting off all things Google.


I finally managed to get my Google notifications under control. When you receive a notification you do not want, long press on it, in the notification tray. Then, tap the settings gear. That seems to do a pretty good job of jumping (close) to the menu where the controls for that notification reside.


That’s a great suggestion…will try that on my next notification… thanks!

Under that setting there are at least a dozen notifications available, and they are ALL conveniently turned on by Google. Now they’re all off, until Google decides differently. I suspect that Updates, which are continuously being dumped, are being used to turn them on. And you can’t ignore updates either. If you do they just install themselves.

That is an excellent point! I forgot we had the icons loaded in the emoji lexicon!


That’s not a hamburger, it’s clearly a stack of pancakes. Who’s responsible for naming these things?


I do ignore them by disabling auto-updates in Play Settings. They will not just install and I don’t have update induced surprises and app issues.
