In my Toyota I can get the sound through the car speakers but only if I use the USB cable and then click on the myiphone tab on my in car screen but then I can't listen to radio, really annoying. It can be done by using as a phone call but is this using my calls up every time it does it ?? Not sure how all this works, and the actual sound that if I set to come out my iPhone is dead set useless, can virtually not hear it even with my phone turned up to max. Any one found a fix yet

You could use the Tasker app to do that (among other other things).

I'm going to put an NFC sticker on my car cradle (an iOttie wireless qi charger) and have Tasker change a bunch of settings when it's docked.

So how can we get Waze to add this option to the Android version for the app? Other Android apps have this feature so it is definitely not a hack or something.

Another weird (in my opinion: basic) feature missing: start Waze automatically when connected to a specific Bluetooth device (the car).

Makes sense but I learned about the feature in a friend's car when his Waze would interrupt the radio and voice out the next direction.
Today, I asked him to provide me step-by-step instructions. He sent me his screenshot and I saw the difference in the apps options.

Waze audio is on the Android Media channel, not the phone channel.
You need to connect your phone to the car as a media player, then turn off "Play sound to phone speaker"

Unfortunately, it only operates when the car's unit it set to BT media. If you are listening to radio or a CD, it will not interrupt.

Seems the Waze app randomly assigns features. I have a Bluetooth phone that works with my Bluetooth automobile but no option to use Bluetooth Waze.

I have yet to find a reason to use the app over Google maps. Not one.

Wow! Thanks for the step-by-step instructions.

Anyone know how to listen to the audio of Waze over the car's Bluetooth radio system?
