    Hello all,

    Waze on my iPhone worked great in my car over the stereo speakers. Now it won't play over BT with my S6. I have read about all I can find and some even say the car/phone must be A2DP compatible. Well my car hasn't changed so is the S6 not compliant or is there something else going on?

    In Waze, I don't see a "Prefer Bluetooth" option in sound like I did on my iPhone

    So is there something in the phone that i need to adjust

    PS. Phone calls work fine in my car over BT

    Thanks in advance

    So I have been on the Waze board and no luck so far.

    Is this issue with Android, the S6 or????

    it could be that your car only supports call audio and not media audio. how to check this. connect the phone to your car bt. go to settings - bluetooth and find your car in the paired devices list. tap on the gear icon next to it and see if it shows used for media audio and if its enabled. if it only shows call audio then you will not be able to play anything via bt.

    No solution, apparently iPhone handles BT differently than Android, it does not appear to be a Waze issue

    The car needs to be A2DP for Android

    Wish there was a solution other than plugging in the audio cable which means I then loose my music while listening to Waze. Not a good alternative

    Sorry

    Bit of a longshot but, in the sound options in Waze try toggling the 'Play sound to phone speaker' on an off.

    May or may not work but worth a try.

    Still looking for a solution to this.

    My phone works great through BT, Pandora and Podcast, not at all. My iPhone worked great with all BT apps in the same car.

    Anyone, please......

    I have a Toyota and Waze worked fine on blue tooth with my previous iPhone. However, with my new Android (galaxy s7), waze doesnot connect to blue tooth.
    Any suggestions how to make this work?

    I have just the opposite problem with my S6 and Nissan Altima. I can't get it to shut up. Have all the notification and such turned to off in the app and it still plays over my vehicles BT.

    For me, nothing has worked. My Altima is a 2008 with upgraded Bose sound, XM and no Nav.

    What year is yours?

    I checked mine and it has both call and media on. Which do I turn off so that Waze will give directions over the radio or CD?
