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.

    So, how does the other person on the call not hear the navigation directions that I hear? They can hear me talking through the directions.

    Provide users the choice how to direct audio.

    I prefer having waze interrupt for provide directions

    This doesn't happen to me because Waze doesn't work when I'm on a blue tooth call. I have to tell callers to hang up if I really need Waze at the same time as the call. And I can't make calls while I'm driving and using Waze.

    I would rather the phone call mute, especially when in a city with numerous turns and such. I have missed a turn on occasion costing me an additional 40Km of driving to get back to where i was going in the first place. Or let the person you are talking to hear the direction and understand why you didn't hear them.

    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.
