I will stick with what works. Thanks again.

Your screenshot doesn't show you are in voice command mode.

Otherwise, you are not adjusting the correct device volume. it still may make no difference, but just wanted to make sure you were following the proper workaround process.


This the interface you referring to?

Same for me here as well, since latest update. Sound is barely audible.

I tried out Waze and dismissed it years ago but have recently 'fell out' with TomTom and so have returned for another look at Waze

I'm liking the changes since I last checked the app/service out but I too have found the volume of alerts and directions when in the car to be low.

Taking the advice here I have noticed that the volume (in my car anyway) is related to the phone call volume; raising that by a few notches, either when an announcement is made from Waze or simply during a phone call has resolved the issue for me

I have found a trick: you run another gps app : like avertinoo.
Then you run waze and the sound volume is correct on waze.

Finding the same issue - love the software and ideas behind it, but can't hear the directions on BT hands-free kit. TomTom is very loud, Waze almost inaudible :-(

I have the same problem. I listen to podcasts through a BT hands free device. Waze does interrupt to give directions, but the volume is so low I cannot hear them. Please fix!

This happened to me as well after applying the latest update from app store. Volume is too low to be helpful while driving. Using the volume button only brings up the ringer volume not the app volume.

I had the same problem on my iPhone (except there was NO sound), and after uninstalling and reinstalling waze several times, and checking all the sound settings for both Waze and the iPhone, I finally discovered that my MUSIC volume was set to 0 and that was directly affecting the Waze volume. Go to the music app, play a purchased song, and you will see the volume bar at the bottom. Turn that up all the way.
