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?

Why So Low Volume Output?

Because it depends on the sound output method. Unlike other audio-playing apps which seem to have a sound output open all the time, Waze doesn't. I believe in iOS, there is an output level defined by the OS for each output method: speaker, headphone, BT, dock. So the slider doesn't really know which one is going to be in use when a sound is playing. Because you could change to headphones later and then the level is different, and then you connect to BT and it's different again. The device volume slider in Waze is really rather useless, but it does cause problems because other apps can adjust the output volume too.


Thanks you for the response. Unfortunately the option to adjust the slider is not available in Waze when my iPhone is plugged into or connected via bluetooth to my car stereo.
With Motion X GPS app that said option is available. I'll just stick with Motion X I guess.
Waze has some cool options but if I can barely hear the turn by turn voice over my car speakers then its obsolete to me. Thanks anyhow.

Why So Low Volume Output?

Postby Bekrah » Sat May 11, 2013 11:39 pm

Why is the volume output so low when using Bluetooth in a automobile? I am using a aftermarket car stereo along with a iPhone 5 running the latest firmware. Im not jail broken by the way.
I have turned to another GPS app oppose to Waze because the Bluetooth volume output is so low with this app even with the volume turned up as loud as it can go within the settings but with other navigation apps it works fine.
I can barely hear the turn by turn navigation voice through my car stereo speakers when I'm using Waze but with the other GPS application I use, the navigation voice is loud and clear.

Is there a planned update to resolve this issue?

my waze just started having this issue. before I could just use the volume buttons on iPhone to change the waze volume (screen has the speaker icon with bar). now if I push the volume buttons, the ringer volume adjustment shows on screen with the ring bell. so it's changing phone ring volume, not waze volume. I could open another app (such as youtube), and change volume there, which gets applies to waze.

this happened couple of days ago (seems waze had an update).

Re: "Play sound to phone speaker" volume low

I have no problems with my Nexus 6... The speaker is much louder than my old Nexus 5 and the Waze directions are at a great volume...

Which voice are you using?

Try adjusting the volume during an Waze announcement.

Yes. Adjust the volume with that onscreen.
