    I've always run Google maps on mute. I don't want it to ever talk to me. But apparently Google decided that it MUST talk to me now. With some recent update, everytime I do a search when hooked to my AA head unit, it now starts telling me about the search results.

    Any idea how to turn this stupid thing off?

    Welcome to Android Central! This only happens when you search Google Maps? Or are you talking about any Google Assistant search?

    Open your Maps app, tap your profile pic>Settings>Navigation Settings>Google Assistant settings, and see if turning off Driving Mode helps.

    It only happens when using Maps via Android Auto. And it didn't used to. But AA requires using google assistant for map searches. And "driving mode" is not currently enabled.

    In the Maps interface in Android Auto, try toggling through the sound options (i.e., the speaker icon). There's an option for audible voice notifications for alerts only (as opposed to routine directions), so that might also apply to search results.

    But it's currently set to mute, no alerts or sound of any kind.

    Hmm, sorry, this is hard for me to troubleshoot, since I don't have an Android Auto car system to test on. Let's see if anyone else has any ideas.
