This is already a feature, which isn't working.

It is a limitation of the Bluetooth Hardware involved. I've used different headsets with the same phone and some work and some don't.

There are several Bluetooth protocols, and all the devices involved need to support the proper protocol(s).

Add Voice Commands over Bluetooth

Postby tecas777 » Sat Feb 01, 2014 9:46 pm

Hi, I am running V3.7.7, Voice directions come through the car speakers fine. However, I am unable to report hazards etc via my in-car Bluetooth system (VW Golf MK6). I understand that this is not a limitation of my Car Bluetooth since multiple persons across different cars have the same issue. I hope this can be implemented for newer versions as a priority so more user data can be fed into waze for those that use the bluetooth functionality.

Thanks.

Hi, the consensus I have got so far is that it is an issue with the software. This feature did work for others previously but was removed around 3.7.5 (if that version exists...). Either that or the application just broke for this around then. Unfortunately I can't check this as I currently see no way to get an older version of the application for iOS 7.

I am guessing my bluetooth should work as it uses the HFP profile which I guess is pretty standard, as well as A2DP. I do believe that HFP profile is used for Waze though...

Please correct me if I am wrong though as fairly new to using the Waze application day to day. Thanks.
