Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet

IPhone Google Maps not Talking

On iPhone go to Settings. Scroll down to Maps and touch. Scroll down to Driving and Navigation and touch. Scroll down to Navigation and Voice Volume and ensure that Loud Volume is checked. Push the upper volume button on the side of the iPhone to max ring volume. But this is not all. Here is the secret, which it took me a long time to find out from an obscure post on the web. Open google maps and choose your location (location services must be on) as origin and some other place as destination. Touch Start (varies by screen, whether you have chosen the little angle arrow for directions or are on another screen -- no matter). Now here is the key part of it. Immediately after touching Start, push the volume up button on the side of the iPhone and keep pushing. A little volume symbol will appear on the screen with ascending bar, and you'll start to hear the voice. The problem is that the volume button works with google maps ONLY when the google maps voice is speaking (which happens for a very short time immediately after you touch Start, so you have to be quick). At other times the volume button controls ring volume, not map voice volume. Since you can't hear the google voice in the first place, you don't know when to push the volume up button to make it louder, and you can't change the volume unless the voice is speaking. The above procedure worked for me after I tried many other things and also heard from some sites that it was the new operating system that had disabled the maps voice, which is not the case. I am using an iPhone 5C with IOS 10.3.3. This may not work with other phones. Not responsible for errors or omissions. Your results may vary. Good luck to all.

I have Google maps on my phone how do I get sound on it when Iam driving,My phone is cinnected to the radio in the car


Google maps starts sound when ur in navigation mode.

  1. Open the Google Maps app .
  2. Search for a place or tap it on the map.
  3. In the bottom right, tap Directions . If you touch and hold the button instead, you'll start navigation and can skip steps 4-6.
  4. Optional: To add additional destinations, go to the top right and tap More Add stop. You can add up to 9 stops. When you are finished, tap Done.
  5. Choose one of the following:
    • Driving:
    • Transit:
    • Walking:
    • Rides:
    • Cycling:
  6. If other routes are available, they will be shown in gray on the map. To follow an alternate route, tap the gray line.
  7. To start navigation, tap Navigate . If you see "Searching for GPS," your phone is trying to get a GPS signal. For example, you might be in or near a tunnel, parking garage, or other location where there's no GPS signal.
  8. To stop or cancel navigation, go to the bottom right and tap Exit.

NOTE:
Navigation is not available in all countries. depends on availability

navigon easy 40 no sound


The usual problem is the voice volume is turned down. This can happen when you are adjusting the volume down just as turn by turn instructions are starting; thus you don't notice it happened, or someone else did it or software glitch caused it or Murphy's law.
The way to fix it is turn vol up to max and set navigation and start driving. As you get to navigation points where you would expect the turn by turn instructions hit the up volume button. Keep trying it will only go up whilst instructions are being broadcast. Try using repeat last directions function to get a better shot at it.
This happened to me and this was the fix, odd but true.
Also see if there is a turn by turn vol level in settings.
Hope it works for you.
