iPhone & Waze: LOW Speaker Volume?
Posted by: MrNoBody
Date: July 17, 2019 09:45AM
iPhone 6S+, iOS 12.3.1, 100% battery, latest version of Waze.

Phone & Waze volume set to max; sounds like a whisper thru phone speaker.
Any solution or is it this normal?

Also when phone is connected to car via BT, Waze will only be
audible if playing music from the phone. Switch to radio or SD card
and Waze audio no longer comes thru. What am I doing wrong??

I don’t know but Waze seems buggy lately. Sometimes it works fine, sometimes it takes a long time to find an address (even ones it used before, from history). Sometimes I get a message that it does voice optimization. I like it because it avoids traffic but I sometimes it pisses me off.

Waze has gotten buggier ever since Google bought it and stopped improving it. As iOS and android platforms mature, they should be putting some work into it, even just to keep it working properly. But as long as it works well enough for you to voluntarily send google realtime tracking information, they'll keep it around.

On my wife's phone, the problem is, it keeps resetting its volume to maximum. We live in a city with red light cameras and there's one two blocks from my house and the stupid thing is always yelling RED LIGHT CAMERA REPORTED AHEAD at us.

On Android, I had the too-high volume problem. About six months ago they added the option to adjust in-app volume.

I think this is an issue with the version of CarPlay your car is running. Sometimes I need to make sure Waze is playing through the car speakers before I drive off.

In my vehicle sound volume is also controlled from the typical radio knob. But it took me awhile to figure out that when Siri or google maps was speaking that there was a separate voice volume. You can only adjust it when voice actions are active. Same knob.
