IPhone problem with Apple Maps on Mylink

Mon Mar 18, 2019 3:20 pm

I use Apple Maps as my main GPS direction finder. The problem is, when I use the USB port to charge the iphone (and use it as the source for podcasts, etc), the vocal direction commands on Maps goes silent. The map on the screen still works, but no audible directions. — I’ve tried all sorts of settings on MyLink and the phone, and nothing seems to work so far. Suggestions would be welcome.

Try using a USB cable that only charges. If can't find one get a Lighter charger adapter or modify your cable leaving connected only the power lines

I ended up solving it by going to "audio" on Apple Maps and choosing iphone instead of Mylink. It's a bit of a pain to do every time, but it works. Thanks.

I know what’s happening. The phone paired to the car, and is sending all sound to the car. But if you don’t have the source for your entertainment set to Bluetooth, you won’t hear the sound. Try that, let me know.
