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

I know that it's worked for me on the previous beta that way. I don't think I tested the route to speaker option in the most current beta. What I usually do if I switch from listening to Google music to the radio is turn the Bluetooth off on the phone so it stops the streaming connection

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.

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.

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!

Prefer BT only really means it will use the phone connection to the car stereo instead of bluetooth streaming. Prefer BT also means it will accept voice commands via BT headset/car connection.

With Speaker and prefer BT off, if your phone is paired with a streaming device, Waze will still use it. Not sure if that's because of the OS, hardware or Waze, but that's the way it works. Waze hasn't implemented, on iOS for example, the standard audio output selection mode that every other app in the world uses...

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?

"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 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.
