Option to pause audio during voice annunciations

Postby jteammn » Mon Jul 30, 2012 1:19 pm

MotionX's Drive app allows pausing IF you start the audio from the iPod app in Drive. Thus the Drive app is the one that has full control.

This seems like a relatively straightforward solution.

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.

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

(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.

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.

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?
