I love Waze. And with the TomTom Car Kit it gets even better. However, I'd like to see a change in how the audio output is handled.
TomTom Car kit. iPhone paired with BT headset and Car Kit. Also the TomTom kit is connected to my car stereo.
I'd like to be able to set the priority for which audio device to use for output, not just BT or speaker priority.
With this feature I would prioritize the car kit so I can listen to music or take calls and hear Waze through the car kit at the same time.
iOS handles the audio for the most part. Each app can specify what output to use, but iOS limits one output at a time. If apps are set to use the same output, the audio will be ducked. If different outputs are specified, iOS stops the output of the first app so the second app can output over the specified device. If the first app supports restarting, iOS will restart it.
I too have been having this issue since the latest release. I dock my iPhone and use the line out from the dock to my car stereo.
My "first app" (Rhapsody) is smart enough / supports restarting, but since the lastest Waze update, it frequently will not start. A bit more info... If I bring Rhapsody to the foreground... the music will resume. Also - if I leave Waze in the foreground, and double-click the home button on my iPhone to bring up the "recent" apps list at the bottom of the screen, music will resume playing. However, as soon as I tap the screen, and Waze gets the focus again (and full screen) the music stops.
Since we are using the dock, and the line out connection, it has nothing to do with the iPhone volume controls.
This used to work fine...now it doesn't. I'm glad to hear it will be fixed in the "next beta", but that cannot come soon enough.
