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

I have a Samsung Galaxy S2 with Android 4.0.4, waze 3.5.1.4 and a Mazda 3 with BT and the only way to get a voice from waze is to switch off BT at my SGS2. Even if i switch to voice over speaker does nothing. In this case I see also if I press the volume keys that my phone still tries to output the voice over BT.

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. ;)

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


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

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

http://www.waze.com/support/

type in for previous matches, when it doesn't find any or you say it didn't help, there is an option to email support

i'd be sure to include your car type as it's something with the bluetooth on your car and or your phone

I have had a similar problem. I found that directions would play through the phone speaker when 'prefer bluetooth' was checked. However when I set both 'play sound to phone speaker' AND 'prefer bluetooth' OFF, the sound is routed to the bluetooth speaker. Odd!

Hello all...

i have a related question, also with an S3 and the abominable Ford Sync System.

I tried selecting "Route sound to speaker" while the phone was paired with the car, and then I heard nothing at all from Waze. When I unchecked "Route sound to speaker" I still couldn't hear any of the voice nav from Waze. I tried various things in the Sync settings such as Bluetooth Streaming on/off and still no voice nav from Waze.

Now that I'm away from the car, Waze is talking to me again, but I fear when I approach the car again, it'll lose its voice.

Also, what exactly does "Route sound to speaker" mean? Does it mean the S3's speaker? The bluetooth connected device? If it's not routing sound to the speaker, where is it supposed to go?

Any ideas anyone?

Thanks!

-Eric

Thanks for your reply Alan!

Just a couple of things: First, I couldn't find the "Prefer BT" option. In the "Sound" settings there's only "Route sound to speaker" and a "Prompts volume" control. Second, by default "Route sound to speaker" is not selected, and the prompts come through the phone speaker anyway. When I did select "Route sound to speaker", that's when I lost all sound from the prompts.

I'm fully ready to blame the Sync system for this, or myself ;) Do you have any idea if I would need to set anything in the Sync system, other than pairing the phone with it (which it is?) I can make/receive phone calls through Sync no problem. If I select "Bluetooth Streaming" on the Sync, then it assumes that's how I'm playing music through it and so can't listen to what I really want to listen to. Other possibly helpful tidbits: In the Bluetooth settings, I have both "Call audio" and "Media audio" checked. I have Waze 3.2.2.2 on a Samsung Galaxy S3, Android version 4.0.1.

Thanks again for your help!

Wow, Alan! That's a mouthful!

Just want to check one thing... you're citing iOS, but I have an Android phone... how might that effect you answers!

Thanks again!
