Why is the Google Navigator Volume No Longer Separate - But Now Linked with Media Volume?1 Recommended Answer
I thought something happened to my phone but am reading many posts of having the same issue, which apparently is occurring after a recent Google Maps update.
The navigation volume should not only be separate, but should be in the Navigation app menu for easy access where the only option now is just MUTE for volume (more preference/options are sorely needed for this app).
I have been using this application over my Garmin since I first switched to Android over a year ago, and the convenience cannot be beat. The fact that I could listen to my favorite streaming station while driving and be able to clearly hear directions to my destination because it automatically reduces the music volume is a great feature - and one that should have a setting (option) as to how long to reduce background music to ones preference. I just hope this bug gets fixed quickly.
Also, please add the ability to edit, name/tag, star or delete destination addresses within the Navigation application as well. I remember long ago being able do some editing, but for some reason that is gone too, It seems that this Google applications is regressing instead of being improved.
Please restore the separate Navigation volume control ASAP.
Please bring back the separate navigation volume!
A better/easier way to turn GPS on for navigation
A way to key in a destination change with fewer than 4 clicks to get to the entry screen
Ability to set waypoints along the way
I understand that many of you have found this change harmful because while playing music and using navigation simultaneously in a car, either the music is too soft and Navigation volume normal OR music volume is normal and Navigation too loud. Thanks for the feedback -- I'll report it back to the team and take it into consideration.
