Mute navigation during phone call.

When making or taking phone calls using bluetooth, waze navigation prompts often interrupt me. The person on the other end of the line can't hear the prompt, but it means either I miss what they're saying, or my train of thought is interrupted mid-sentence.

It would be useful for the client to auto-mute during a phone call.

        It's really distracting when Waze continues to 'talk' when a voice call comes in. The option to auto mute is badly needed.

        It would be very useful to be able to pre set a volume for in-call directions. Alternatively, Waze could mute or lower the volume when a call comes in.

        Please give us the option to mute during calls.

        Driving instructions and alerts

        OUGHT interrupt music and
        OUGHT interrupt calls

        Don't end calls, but pipe waze audio into calls

        I prefer to be not-lost

        I prefer being interrupted with directions during a conversation. Given the dispute BOTH options should be offered (defaulting to interruption)

        > Please allow advanced [android] users to select the audio path.

        Yes, please. For the phones with not-feckless audio subsystems that is.

        I agree, would be nice to be able to have the option to mute it during phone calls. Even during handset calls on iOS it does it

      • Anonymous commented  · 

        I think muting would be good but also an option to automatically reduce the volume when on the phone so you can still hear the navigation

      • MikeTheWazerMikeTheWazer commented  · 

        In general the user should be able to use navigation and switch off voice prompts similar to Google Maps Navigation.

        This is a huge problem. I would suggest though that there be an option for 'In-call Volume' which you could set to mute or a particular volume level.

        I have a Galaxy Tab GP1000 Gingerbread and I use it with a bluetooth headset. In settings/sound I've checked "always use speakers" in the option but the system doesn't work good: voce comes out both italian or english and often interrupted. Maybe is a problem due to my Tab and I'll verify using my wife's new S-II Advance. I'll post here the result. Thanks.

        Also has to Mute when voice input is prompted.

      • DavidDavid commented  · 

        ps: please add it as an option in settings and not default

      • DavidDavid commented  · 

        This would definitely be helpful! Mute during call is badly needed!

      • bedobedo commented  · 

        It has to be optional indeed. A check in the user option: "Mute during phone call"

      • Anonymous commented  · 

        I would rather hear directions. I can always ask the person to repeat buy I can't make that turn if I miss it. Option would be nice but not mute on auto. Tks

      • João RodriguesJoão Rodrigues commented  · 

        For sure it should be optional for those who prioritize navigation, but we must at least have the option!!! One can get really confused when getting an important phone call that needs to be answered promptly!

      • Anonymous commented  · 

        Definitely option settings, "Waze Volume during Call" 0->10
        Beep at turns when Waze Muted On/Off

      • not device's person not device's person commented  · 

        NO.

        should be OPTION

        I prefer waze interrupt call when in unfamiliar area

        miui.us rom provides better audio pathways: waze can speak directly into phone conversation instead of speaker phone (more preferential)

        similarly the Jingle Audio Blurb feature

        http://tinyurl.com/wazeblurbsafely

        should optionally interrupt calls with alert/report categories selected by user preference (global, group, friends)
