Got a 2019 XLE.
  • Samsung S7 paired w/ car
  • Phone will route all media audio to rav4 when car is turned on
  • Listen to music on USB drive most of the time
  • on occasional trips, will run Waze/Google Maps on phone
  • since phone routes audio to rav4 and I'm listening to music on USB, I will not hear the turn by turn instructions
  • work around is to turn off bluetooth on phone. Turn by turn directions will output to phone speaker
  • side effect is I cannot use hands free phone call due to phone is disconnected from car.

Note: while listening to USB audio w/ phone connected bluetooth, usb audio pauses when I get a phone call or text message, which is expected.

Question:
anyone know of a way to make Waze direction prompts work with USB audio being active?

thx

Do you have Entune 3.0 app installed on the phone? If not, install it, if it is, remove it. I use an iphone on Carplay now, but in my '16 Ltd HV I used an S7 with bluetooth music from the phone, seemed to work pretty good even tho I never used the App Suite itself.

Have you set the nav to “Play as Bluetooth phone call”?

There's no "Play as Bluetooth phone call" option on the Android version of Waze. I've enabled "play sound to phone speaker" and now I can get directions w/o having to turn off BT on the phone.
