I would also like this - I spend my life driving and listening to audiobooks. This is the only feature that keeps me using Navigon. Navigon does a little more than a simple pause, however. It pauses and rewinds a couple of seconds. Is this the official place to ask for features? If so, how do we know if/when this feature will be allowed in?

If the pause is programmed in, it should be an option. I am a musician and my Garmin regularly drove me crazy while listening to music because it would interrupt the music, instead of overriding the audio.

(Yet) another podcast listener that would like a pause option for other audio during TTS. This would GREATLY enhance the experience-especially if it supports third-party apps (through a standard API). Even streaming from a website alles for pause unless it is live-streaming.

Another podcast listener who would love this feature to be added to th iOS app.

Thanks for explaining how to evoke this feature with the MotionX app.

I would like to see this added as well. In particular, I use the iOS client, with my iPhone connected to my car's audio via audio cable. I would like Waze to be able to pause music/podcasts when playing own audio, rather than lowering the volume and continuing on.

This feature of waze is therefore currently useless to me.

Pause the audio, please!



Agreed again, my particular commute has one of the worst corridors of traffic in the US. I get many reports each way, between accidents, police, cars on the side of the road, it gets really REALLY irritating when trying to listen to my audio book (the only thing that keeps my sanity in the first place)

+1 It can be hard to hear the nav instructions over the music sometimes and I end up having to always look at the directions visually.
