Honda Handsfree and Google Maps Problem

    When my S20+ is connected to my Honda SUV's handsfree system with Bluetooth, Google Maps will no longer give directions out loud. The map will show on the screen, but there are no audible directions. If I turn bluetooth off on my phone, so that the handsfree connection with the car is turned off, Google Maps functions normally. This is most annoying. I've taken my phone to the T-Mobile store, and they couldn't find any settings that I was missing. Has anyone else experienced this problem? Did you find a solution? Thanks.

    You have two options:
    1. Set your stereo source to Media, but you will lose your music through your stereo. You can stream from your phone, but this isn't my preference.
    2. In Maps settings there is an option to play notifications through bluetooth. Turn this off and your phone will still connect through the stereo but the audible navigation commands will play through the phone speaker.

    Thanks. The second option sounds like just what I need. I'll try this out tomorrow.
