Google Maps on iPad volume?
Posted by: Dik2

I'm using Google Maps on my iPad in the car and can't figure out how to increase the volume. The buttons on the iPad seem to only control ringer volume when using Google maps.
Help much appreciated.

I looked in Settings, found Sound, turned off "use buttons for ringer and alerts". Hope that makes the volume buttons work.

Pull down control panel from top right. Move volume bar to highest level.

Aha. The iPad/iPhone has volume settings for multiple modes of operation, and you are adjusting the volume when it is in “ringer” mode, which is most of the time - even when the Google Maps app is running.

The trick is to adjust the volume while Google Maps is speaking directions to you. So put in a bogus destination, click “start,” and during those few seconds while the voice is telling you where to go, adjust the volume.

Many Bothans died to bring us this information. I do not understand how people are supposed to figure this out.

Oh, I learned something today, thank you. When that “use buttons for ringer and alerts” option is turned OFF in Settings > Sound, the side buttons work for Google Maps whenever the app is running. When it is turned ON, which is the case with my phone, the side buttons only work for the frontmost app when it’s generating sound.

Very interesting. But now with that option OFF, if your phone rings in church you either have to flip the tiny “silent” button on the side of the phone, or you’re going straight to h311. Hmmm. I may prefer the ON behavior.

Tenders, do not disturb mode would work better at church. Again, pull down from top right, control center and click on the moon.

But then I would have to remember to activate the moon. Don’t tell ME how to worship. Just don’t.
