Navigation Prompts Lowers Music Volume

63

Now Implemented!

Description

The sound options should have a choice to lower the music volume when the Navigation has something to say and bring it back to the previous volume after that.

Competitive/Pricing/Notes

Most phones with GPS already do this.

Right now, the two sounds are overlaid, and the only thing we can do is turn the volume during the time the Navigation voice occurs

Status

Implemented around 2017.  The Navigation voice volume level can be set independently from the music audio.

I'm thinking the music, from what ever the source, should pause because the Navigation is way more important than the music and then resume automatically.  I've had to increase the nav sound to 3 quarters high so as to hear it over the music I'm jamming to.

This could be a safety issue and should be implemented.

a Kallen, the thing is the GPS speaks on the passenger side and has a specific volume.

when it speaks you can change the volume on the steering wheel.

or at anytime on the navigation screen you can tap the sound icon in the directions list

Seems to be difference in experience. My model S still combines the music and voice, and if I'm rocking out, I barely can detect anything was said at all.

I'm going to tack on to this instead of a new idea. Do the same for phone calls. Instead of Muting the GPS, turn it down so you don't miss a turn while talking.

Nope, that's already fixed : in my MX the nav guidance automatically lowers the music on the driver side

Might not be ideal if sound is set to rear seats to entertain the kids.
