I also have the sgs3 and originally had the "route to speaker" checked.
because I had my headphone jack plugged into the car stereo where i was streaming music.
i wanted waze to come out the phone speaker, while the streaming music routed out the headphone jack. this did NOT work.
no audio came out of the speaker, both waze and streaming app came out the headphone jack.

BUT i found out that having this set this way, every time waze would speak, it would cause my streaming app to stop streaming, and i had to restart the streaming app, which was very annoying on a long drive.

so i turned off/unchecked the route to speaker option and still waze and the streaming app would go out the headphone jack over the car's radio, however this time, the streaming app was NOT stopped or affected. so while this wasn't ideal, it did work and i was no longer annoyed by waze.

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.

Venatius wrote:I've been having some confusion with bluetooth audio myself. When I'm streaming music via BT off of my phone, Waze does the following:

Route to Speakers off: Waze meekly talks through the music without turning it down/pausing it, and is largely unintelligible.
Route to Speakers on: Waze pauses the music to... say nothing at all.
Prefer Bluetooth: Doesn't exist. Route to Speakers is the only thing in there.

This is one of the relatively few things other GPS apps seem to have a leg up on, so it's frustrating to see such minor imperfections chafing at the experience.


In my case, with "Route to speaker" off while streaming music, I can hear the directions just fine. But I also just hear a pause in the music with "route" turned on. If I turn off BT on my phone I can hear the directions just fine over the phone speaker.

Support said that the ticket I had opened with them had been submitted to deveolpment, but still no word.

I finally heard back from support. They're looking into it so hopefully I'll have something to report at duke point. They made it sounds like they will be working on a code fix for it.

I e-mailed support about this a couple of weeks ago, and still haven't heard anything. Does anyone know how long it takes for them to respond?

So I confirmed the behavior. I'm still not getting the sound with the phone connected to BT, but when I turned BT off on my phone I could here it.

Does anyone know how I got about submitting this to support? I can't find how to do that.

I did the uninstall \ reinstall today and will test on my way home. I did verify that the "route to speakers" works as expected with headphones...when I have my headphones plugged in and check the "route to speaker", I hear it on the phone's speakers and when it's not checked I hear it through the headphones.

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.

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