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.

        Please make this an option in Android! Please, please, please! Thanks!

        I saw in comments that someone said that this was available in the US, I don't see that option among my sound settings.

        Don't talk on the phone while driving. Hands free or not it's still distracting

        I have it set to mute but it is not working on mine. Perhaps programming needs to look at this.

        כמשתמש אני זקוק לגישה ישירה לויסות עוצמת הקול במכשיר. אני נוהג להשתמש ברמקול של המכשיר ומשאיר את השימוש בחיבור הבלוטות' לקבלת שיחות טלפון בזמן נסיעה. כאשר אני מקבל שיחה בבלוטות' אני מעוניין להחליש את עוצמת הקול של וויז שממשיכה להשמע ברמקול המכשיר.

        הגישה היום לשינו עוצמות הקול מאוד לא נוחה, וביחוד בזמן נסיעה. האם אפשר להוסיף על תצוגת הרמקול על המפה - שני לחצנים נוספים (+/-) שיאפשרו העלאת והורדת עוצמת השמע? זה יקל מאוד על השימוש.

        To turn this feature on/off, Tap the Wazer icon in the lower left of the screen > Tap Settings > Tap Sound > Toggle Mute Waze during calls

        It is HERE! This feature was released in the US today!! And, it is user-selectable as to whether it is on or off. Perfect!

        Thank you, Waze, for finally responding to this request, even though it was many years coming!!

        Great idea. I prefer waze to the $2500 navigation system in my car, but even a dumb nissan knows to stop talking when I'm on the phone.

        Of course, I can take my hand off the wheel, my attention off the road, and turn off voice prompts when a phone call comes in, but that doesn't seem a great alternative for users.

        Additionally, direction read-out's need to be shortened during a phone call so as to cause even less of a disturbance, but still ensure that the turn is not missed.

        An alternative chime to distinguish an upcoming hazard, police, left or right turn would also help.

        I have an iPhone and when i drive i have music going, Waze helpfully talks over the music to give me directions, and my phone can pause my music automatically when i make a call. But Waze can't be quiet when I am on a call?

        this is so hard to do , google it did in its maps like other gps, because waze can not or just do not care , this suggestion box is so useless , that served if just ignore it

        Preferably also as optional... by default mute on during phone call, but with option to not mute. Just to satisfy all people.
