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.

        This is already an option. If you go to setting>Sound & voice>mute waze during calls all the way at the bottom. pretty sure it's been there for a while

        Instead of muting, how about just turning the volume down? I may still need directions when on the phone, but I don't need the directions blasted at me at a volume many times that of the phone call.

        I use Waze via BT in my car often along with streaming music, and when I get a phone call, Waze does mute itself as does the music, so I do not have this issue. Not sure if it's the phone (Galaxy S5) or Waze that does the muting.

        I have the same idea, but 'mute' maybe can cause a problem if you not be attecntion in traject. The solution maybe is 'mute' the voice of waze, but sound a 'beep' and sinalize directions.

        The feature appears in options under advanced sound but it doesn't seem to work on my Samsung edge 7.

        You actually can mute Waze during calls. Go to Settings on waze > Sound > then turns on the option for "Mute Waze during 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.
