Turn on the prefer Bluetooth setting in Waze. That works for me.

There's a difference between bluetooth streaming (no interrupting available) and the other, which is like "headset mode" which can interrupt whatever the car stereo is doing.

I know this thread has been dormant for some months, but this does seem like an issue for Android users. You can get the waze sounds on your car speakers via bluetooth only if you have everything set to stream music from the phone to the car stereo. If you have the radio playing, you're not going to get any waze sounds. Any update waze developers?

Tagging along. I tried the Audio BT app thinking it would allow voice to play when listening to my radio, but it doesn't work with Chrysler's UConnect system. The only way I can receive voice prompts is when streaming from my phone via BT. Bummer. . .

I have an iPhone 4 and Bluetooth works great, exactly like what you are looking for. There is a setting to play via Bluetooth. As long as your phone and car radio are synced it should work.

I am having exactly the same problem as Dalia_ reporting above. Only since the Aug 28 update. Waze audio has always over-ridden the radio in my Chrysler 300 Bluetooth sound system. Now I get nothing out of Waze through the car. Clearly something changed in the update and I wish I never did the update. I hope the product developers take note. We need some help here. I love Waze.

To Dalia_ and the moderators re the change in Bluetooth audio after the update: before the update Waze audio played over the radio, or when the radi was off. It even played over phone calls. I learned while researching the issue that I could select the media player in my car and play music from my iPhone over my car system. What I learned tonight is that Waze has not gone silent, but it only speaks directions when the media player is active! I'm not technical enough to say exactly why, but that is what changed in the update and it is a BAD THING! Waze should not need the media player on because then it is impossible to use Waze navigation and listen to broadcast or satellite radio at the same time. I hope this was an accidental change and respectfully ask that the developers look into this and rectify it in a bug fix soon. Thank you.

I have an iPhone 5 with the latest OS update and am having the same problem. Waze worked flawlessly via bluetooth before latest Waze update. I've uninstalled and re-installed but it just won't work. At first I thought it might be the phone but music plays and phone calls received and made all work via bluetooth.

Just when I was about to give up, it's somewhat working again :?: Did not do anything different, all settings are the same. It seems to be intermittent. It worked beautifully before.

Make sure "prefer Bluetooth" is checked in the settings.

That's exactly how it use to work and my "prefer Bluetooth" setting has always been checked. Thank you for responding to this post. For a moment and based on what others have said, I thought I was going nuts. As you've said, whether it was radio, CD etc., it interrupted and played through the car speakers.
