Iphone 7Plus, iOS 10.3.3

The home screen icon for Google Maps shows a 1 'out of the blue' with nothing on the app itself showing anything amiss. In Settings / Notifications - 'Google Maps' does not show, thus I cannot deselect the 'Badge App Icon'. I have rebooted the phone, then uninstalled & reinstalled Google Maps to no avail..

Apologies - last post probably more appropriate for 'iOS software' as not likely related to this specific iOS version, which has been installed for quite some time without any glitches. Could a moderator move my post - Please & Thank You

Disregard all - a chap on iMore suggested going into the 'under the hood' settings in the app (left side of the search bar) where in 'notifications' I saw nothing obvious but tried enabling 'background navigation instructions' as a trial & error fix - it worked
