    Hi all, I have an LG thrill and when I drive I like to listen to the music on my phone. Problem is though, is that at the end of my playlist it starts to play GPS directs like "turn right on carnes road" as if the directions are saved or something. It doesn't do this when I'm listening to music straight from the phone, but when its connected over the USB cord in my car it does it all the time. I've checked my phone and I dont have anything saved.
    I can't figure out how to get it to quit, its pretty embarrassing! Any advice would be a great help, thanks.

    Hi posterr, welcome to AF. I'll move your query to the LG Thrill subforum, hopefully someone there will be able to assist! :)

    Just turn down the navigation volume and that'll fix the problem. To do that just use the volume buttons while in GPS mode.

    I've tried that already, I just looked in the folder when I plugged it into my pc and I still don't see anything in there.

    Folder???? When your using your GPS just use the volume buttons to turn down the voice.

    It sounds like his phone is playing a file located somewhere on the phone.

    If I understand correctly he does NOT have navigation running when this happens.

    What music app are you using to play the music.

    I have had issues with some apps pulling every single music file on the phone and playing it. In some cases you can not access and delete these files (system files)

    The music app may have a selection in the settings that allows you to ignore all folders but"music" etc...

    Mix zing allows me to point it to the one folder I want it to play files from

    Nav stores a bunch of wav files in sdcard/android/com.google.apps.maps something something/cache.

    You're plugging the phone into stereo with a usb cable and playing music off it like a thumbdrive and the stereo is seeing all those wav files.

    (there's a .nomedia file in there but I guess the stereo ignores that, maybe it's only android that does the .nomedia thing)

    You can just delete them with a file explorer, more will show back up the next time you use nav though.
