    Hi all
    I need to uncheck this option to allow map directions be read out on car stereo using android auto. I have looked in Google maps, settings, navigation settings but it's not there on my wife's work phone. It's on every other android phone I have looked at. Anyone know why it wouldn't be there. It has android phone v7 latest maps downloaded. I have looked on older phones and the setting is there.

    You say you need to uncheck the option to get it to work. Usually you check something to get it to work, so what exactly are you looking at that is an option that you cannot change?

    Is this just a phone she uses for work or is it a phone that was issued to her by her employer? Often employers will lockdown certain features and settings to discourage non-work related use. If the phone is issued to an employee by an employer the phone falls under the ownership of the employer regardless of the freedoms given to the employee and all communications and usage can be monitored by the employer and are not subject to any type of privacy on the part of the employee.

    You mentioned in another forum that some settings were missing, this could be intentional on the part of the employer but may be restorable upon request. I would suggest she take it to their IT person, explain the situation and see if they will or can accommodate this need.

    Her phone is supplied by her employer. The plan is to go to IT after her holidays, I was just trying to see if I could sort it before she goes back. It maybe that her employer has restricted this.
