PopUpgraded my Pixel 2 to Android 11 yesterday. Just noticed that I can't close or swipe away Google Maps in my notifications pull-down window. I do use Android auto and the maps app has shut itself down when I disconnected in the past.  Concerned that this.may draining my battery more quickly.

I also can't exit google maps navigation notifications since upgrading to android 11 on a new pixel 4a. The trip ends but the notification will not go away not matter what..only after force quitting maps which is concerning.

I've got the same issue. Any fix for this? 
It says where I'm navigating to as though I'm still trying to drive there, but I've already reached the destination and closed google maps. I've actually had a LOT of bugs since upgrading to 11. Keyboard not appearing, apps not closing, Notifications not going away... Pretty disappointing.

Hello Joe, 

As a onetime activity, could you go to settings - apps - maps and clear the cache, data, and force stop the app.  It shouldn't happen again. 

Regards,
Mike

Same, pixel 4a - seems to be any notifications in this area, arrived at my location 8 hours ago and "closed" the navigation... this just keeps hanging around. Cleared all notifications etc... Also clicking "Exit Navigation" does nothing

Here, experiencing the same thing.

The force stop/cache clear fixed the notification. We'll see if it's still acting up after my next trip.

2 months later, still happening

Clearing the cache only fixes it until next time I use it

Why are users put through all of these stupid hoops. Why is there a fake place to submit problems and then we just get told to submit them somewhere else.
If you know there's a problem, again - why do we have to submit it somewhere else??
