Waze sound problems.

 

I use my android smartphone on my motorcycle. They are connected by BT. I play my phones music files on the motorcycle audio system. Also have hands free access to my phone. That works great until I startup the Waze app. In 5 to 10 minutes later. The audio to the bike will stop and come out of the tiny phone speakers. Happens every time.

Is there a setting I need to look at or something else I can do to fix this. By the way Google maps does not do this. So currently using google maps but would like to give Waze a decent try to see if I like it better.

Thanks

In the Waze settings, under

In the Waze settings, under audio, there it's a setting for which device to use, BT or speakers. You may also have too many devices trying to an audio device.

Checked settings.

Went into the Waze settings and found output audio to phone speakers. It was set to off. I believe that is what you referred to.

How would I know if there are too many devices going to an audio device. With only 2 apps running. Google music player and Waze.

I might have skimmed your

I might have skimmed your article too fast, and I thought you were trying to use Google and Waze and the music. What you are doing is no more than most users have going on in their cars, (including me).

It should work better now that you have directed Waze what to use for audio.

This is not really a solution. I just want to share my experience with my Google Maps (and Waze) apps. Mine does the same thing. I set Google Maps app to route the sound to my car stereo system over BT. It works fine but sometimes the sound from the app fails to come out of my car speakers. It works when it wants to. I have no idea why.

Problem appears to be fixed.

Well I got a new phone. Problem is gone. I looked in the waze settings and they all appear to be the same.

Identical Problem

Waze sound has been intermittent with my last two phones and in multiple vehicles. The audio fails on occasion even when set to use the phone speakers with BT turned off.

I've been fighting this problem for two years now with no solution.

Have noticed sound / no sound issues with Waze for months. Often seems killing the app and restarting the phone is the only way to fix it, sometimes.
