Low volume issues with GPS instructions :(

Low volume issues with GPS instructions :(

I use BT in my car for music and for GPS instructions.


Spotify now dips the volume of the music and lets it continue to play while the GPS instructions are read out. However it takes the GPS instructions with it so they are dipped as low as the music!!


Incidentally, when I use RunKeeper (via the 3.5mm jack) I can hear the instructions for running perfectly while the volume of the music is dipped.

As for GPS, I've tried TTS/Built in voices on Google Maps, Waze and CoPilot.


I think it's a bug!! Any ideas?

Yep, you're right. There is a known bug/issue with the volume normalisation, notification etc on Android.


It is known and will be fixed in the next update, which can't come soon enough.


FYI - I too use Spotify with Waze and have experienced the same behaviour.
