Question: Does Apple Watch series 3 turn by turn navigation on maps use iphone?

Basically I had an appointment with my adress in my phone in my calendar It appeared on my my watch, and as I pushed on my watch and pressed on directions, my watch just kept searching the adress to tell me that directions aren’t available. I had my iPhone 7 with me in my car. I don’t know if it changes anything but my iPhone was connected to my Bluetooth in my car?

Can anyone help?
