It doesn't use any of your phone minutes or anything though right? Does it just make the headunit (Stereo) think its a phone call to interrupt?

No, no minutes used. It's just the type of BT connection between the phone and car and allows the "interrupt" to happen.


Tapatalk made me do it.

Maybe it's a bug in Waze. Maybe it's hardware or rom-specific. It does work on ios even when bt streaming music. I'm not touting iOS, but saying that it would be expected to have parity on android.

That function is amazing.
If you are listening radio de Voice allways Play. Even if the radio it's turned OFF.
It works like a phone call.

Sound to Speaker / Bluetooth?

Postby thebackroad » Mon Aug 20, 2012 5:04 pm

I'm trying to figure out how the "sound to speaker" function works.

Using an Android (Galaxy S3) if I have checked the "Route Sound to Speaker" button and if the phone is communicating with my bluetooth radio will the navigation info "punch through" whatever is playing on the radio? Or is this a radio-dependent issue?

Does it matter what input the radio is set for? The choices are:
- Tuner (the usual as I am an NPR junkie)
- Aux "(which might be what I need but I thought that was just for a mini-plug connector if you're using one)
- USB (I could connect to the Android via USB but I'm usually charging my phone via the 12 volt socket
- XM Tuner

I fear that unless I am set to Aux I'll not hear the navigation. But if so what is the Bluetooth doing for me (other than answering phone calls).

This may be as much an Android question as a Waze query but who knows, maybe someone has the answer.

Thanks.

I initially thought it was my car causing the problem but after reading the posts I understand it is likely Waze that has as issue. In my 2015 CRV only in the last few months whenever I try to use Waze via Bluetooth there is no sound and I am being asked by the car system if I would like to transfer the call but what ever I am doing I cannot make the Bluetooth to work with Waze. Funny is the fact that when I am in a middle of a phone call, Waze sounds loud and clear through Bluetooth which is very irritating because is is so loud you cannot continue the phone call.
Please advise

Thank you! I have been trying for weeks to get Waze via BT on my Samsung S3. As of now, and I am leery of expecting this to be a permanent fix, I suddenly get audio on BT. I am using it with AudioBT TTS. Not crazy about the voice, but at least the audio instructions are finally there.

This is an old thread and I'm sorry for bringing it back up. It seems to be the only place I can find where people are having the same problem as me.
I was using Waze on an iPhone 4s with no issues with bluetooth. I have recently changed to a Galaxy 5s and no more alerts or directions come through the car speakers unless I'm on a phone call. Then they will come through until I get off the call.
This sounds like a Waze problem as android does not have the option to play sound to BT while iOS does.
Has anyone found a good fix for having Waze alerts and directions (If Nav) through BT?

Thanks, this is my first post to these forums.

I had the same problem. I used SoundAbout to redirect the sound to the speaker. Now after the update to 4.1.2 all work correct without workaround. ;)
