Sound to Speaker / Bluetooth?

From some mucking around today, I've discovered the following... I think... it got confusing.

If "Media Audio" is set to "on" for the Bluetooth device (Sync) in the system Settings, then sound will come through the sync system if the Sync system is set to Bluetooth Streaming. If it's set to Bluetooth Streaming it doesn't play anything other than what's coming in through Bluetooth, which means no playing the radio, CD, anything else. It doesn't matter what the Waze "Route sound to speaker" setting is.

So, so far, I haven't found the necessary voodoo spell to get Waze voice nav to interrupt what's playing through the Sync system, like a phone call would. Maybe the Android version is awaiting the "Prefer BT" option? For now, it's all through the Samsung's speaker.

Stay tuned to this channel for more late-breaking developments as they happen...

Sorry to ressurect an old thread, but I'm having similar problems. I just got a car with bluetooth, and ever since I did I've lost my directions. I've tried the 'route to speakers' option both ways, and I never hear the guidance.

Like serveral folks in the thread, I have a Galaxy S3. Has anyone found how to configure it to get the sounds from Waze?

The only way for sound to come out of you car stereo from Waze (on Android anyway) is to have it as your Bluetooth media option on the car stereo. You cannot have Waze interrupt radio or CD operation on your car stereo. You either have to live with having the navigation directions come out of the phone's loudspeaker or streaming music from your phone with the Waze audio playing with it.

I would love to get the directions from the phone's speaker. I don't get them at all when it's connected to BT, regadless of how I configure the sound settings in Waze.

"Play sound to speaker" does nothing? Does Android keep a separate volume setting for phone speaker vs other output method?

Nope, not when on bluethooth. Not sure about the separate volume, but there is a volume in Waze that's al the way up.

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.

This is very strange, i'm beginning to think it's an actual setting on your phone, perhaps in the bluetooth options

the fact that you can stream music over bluetooth without issue, waze uses the same setup, it's considered media

troubleshoot time........start with uninstalling waze, and use a file explorer to remove the waze folder......your favorites will be restored when you re-install......the only thing you will have to re-set are the actual things in waze, such as your car type, etc etc

if that fails, look in your bluetooth options


EDIT, perhaps the easiest solution.....do you have your car set to the bluetooth streaming station?......for instance my button on my car is 'cd/aux'......obviously it is the 'aux' part of it

Just to clarify, I'm not looking to have the sounds played over bluetooth. I'd like it over the phone speakers so I can get the notifications regardless of whether I'm listening to a BT source or just the regular radio.

route to speaker goes to the phones speaker, and works for me on my nexus 4.1 jellybean

yeah try the troubleshooting above, mostly deleting the waze folder after uninstalling and re-installing

after that, find a friend that has an android device and waze and hook it up to your car and see

otherwise might need a support ticket
