Default Force LG G Watch to vibrate during navigation updates

This might be a really stupid question.

One of the reasons I picked up the G Watch was for navigation updates. I ride a motorcycle - and offering me the next turn is awesome -=- small problem - it doesn't let me know that the turn is coming up. Any ideas on that?

I don't have an answer for Android Wear unfortunately, but if you are truly unable to find a solution the Pebble does do this with the NavMe app (I use it for the same reason, that and music controls while riding). I do hope you figure it out though as I'd like go jump to Wear soon myself...
If this post (or other's) helped you, hit THANKS!

A new update for maps was released today. See if it fixes your problem.

Google maps stated that it is still in beta and isn't that reliable, so no official fixes if it doesn't work for now.

Latest maps update improves information on wear devices and vibrates when directions are given. Make sure mute is not on in navigation. Much more usable now with phone in pocket/bag.
