Google Maps directions won't play over car audio, except when Pixel is chosen as audio source.
0
In Driving Mode, Google Maps directions won't play over my car (2015 BMW) audio system, except when my Pixel 6 is chosen as the audio source.  i.e.  I can listen to music on my Pixel 6 through the car audio system and get map directions, but I can't listen to the car radio and get map directions through the audio system.

I can switch off "Play voice over Bluetooth" in Nav settings, and listen to the directions over the phone speaker, so it's not the end of the world.  But I think I should be able to do both.

Any solutions?

Hi Pendragon
 
I suspect there can be only one chosen audio source.
 
For me, I play radio through my phone using the BBC or TuneIn radio apps which allow for audio dimming when driving instructions occur.

Same problem. In order to hear it at all I have to choose Bluetooth on my 2018 RAV4 and then I can't listen to the radio, 9nly the directions. With my LG Stylo i had the same problem and eventually it worked, no clue why

My old Pixel 2XL allowed me to hear audio Maps directions from my phone speaker while driving and listening to the car radio through the car's speaker system.  The Google Pixel 6 does not automatically play the driving directions when the car is running.  The Google 6 phone is paired with the vehicle that I am driving.  What is a the solution to be able to hear the Google Map audio directions??
