Scratch my prior post.

I was fat-fingering the audio icon. When I kept trying I ultimately got it to unmute.
So......never mind.

For other similarly situated folks, the audio icon mutes an unmutes when you touch it, assuming you actually manage to touch the microscopic icon with your giant fingers instead of everything next to it.

All sound just quit working for me today, was fine yesterday.

Android 2.3.4


No bluetooth involved.

I've toggled guidance to various values, toggled 'route sound to speaker', rebooted phone, pulled battery, went back to last beta, then 3.6 again......

I can't get any sound to work today for waze.....

Is there anything in preference file I can check?

And you don't have the mute turned on in the Main menu at the top?

Nope.


Does the volume slider in the app make noise when you slide it? Mine currently isn't and I don't remember if it did or not. I know that usually volume sliders will make noises when you move them so you can hear what the volume is.

Fixed it (short version):

Uninstalled waze
attached phone to pc, deleted waze directory from sd card, detached phone from PC
Re-installed waze
Started waze, it initialized, sound working again.

little more detail:
Deletion of the waze directory from SD card was necessary because waze wouldn't initialize after the re-installation unless I removed the waze directory.

Hi,

I am using Samsung Galaxy S3 GT-I9300 with Android version 4.1.2. My phone is connected to the car stereo via bluetooth for music listening.

Whenever I start Waze to navigate anywhere, the voice navigation (or any sound from Waze) will interrupt my music app.

Music playing -> Music paused -> Waze voice navigation provide instructions -> Music resumed

Waze used to allow the music to continue playing in the background while it provides the voice navigation. In case you are wondering, the "Route sound to speaker" option is already off.


Any idea how to resolve this? Thanks in advanced.

Lost all sound again today.

Had to completely remove Waze (make sure you get the waze dir on SD card) and reinstall to fix.


One note:

Yesterday I installed updates of the GasBuddy and 'Easy Installer - Install apk'

apps

Complete loss of ALL sound for the 3rd time (seems to happen every couple of weeks)

Worked yesterday, not working today.

Last time I thought that maybe some updates to other apps may have been a problem.

But this time there wasn't any updates to anything since yesterday.


This is really bad as the only way to fix the problem is to completely remove waze then reinstall from scratch.....

One thing that may be an issue - there are only two output choices in Waze - bluetooth or built-in speaker. There is no selection for digital audio output, which is how I listen to music. This may be a source of some of my issues.

Make sure both Bluetooth and phone speaker settings are set to off. In this case, Waze will send audio over whichever connection the iPhone would use if you played music—if it's USB, Waze prompts should play over USB, whether you're using Spotify or the built in music app.
