Piping Google Maps through car audio causes every announcement to be truncated

I have a Uconnect 8.4 NAV on a 2016 JGC. I just started experimenting with piping the audio from Google Maps navigation through the car audio via Bluetooth. I immediately noticed that the first second or so *always* gets truncated.

The result is that instead of hearing "In a quarter mile, turn right onto...", I hear "...turn right onto...". So vital information is being lost on every announcement.

Is this a bug of Uconnect, or is it an Android or Bluetooth issue?

Re: Piping Google Maps through car audio causes every announcement to be truncated

I use Google Maps via bluetooth as well and seems to work great as long as I have the head unit set to 'bluetooth' for audio streaming. If I set the head unit to fm or am it will try to cut back over to bluetooth and does cut off the prompts. Not sure if this is what you have going on?

ALSO some things I have found that help:

-In your google maps app set your prompt voice to high
-Turn off the cars navigation voice prompts and you can use the cars navigation visual along with Google maps for the better audio (not perfect but helps because I can't stand the voice recordings from the factory were clearly done in two different windows 95 voices ha)

No, it sounds like I'm doing the same thing you are.

Maybe it's a bug with my particular unit/version or phone.

Thanks for chiming in with your experience, though!

FWIW, I use WAZE on my Samsung/Android S6 cell phone in place of the built in nav maps. Wonderful app with lots of information shown on the screen. I get a kick out of using its Colonel Sanders voice for audible directions.

This happens in all cars... The only way its not truncated over bluetooth is if you are already listening to bluetooth audio from the phone doing also doing the navigating. If no active music is being played there is a lag time in the connection to bluetooth for each individual direction otherwise.

That's strange! We aren't saying you can't have directions we are saying the beginning is cut off.

My 2016 BMW still doesn't do it so I'm not sure how your 2012 one is set up? Do your waze directions come through on the phone call screen on idrive when you aren't listening to Bluetooth audio from the phone already? You sure the beginning isn't cut off?

The only time it works for me in my jeep and my BMW's is if I'm listening to Spotify or Pandora etc already and using waze to navigate at the same time.

And this also goes for my 2004 BMW , 2006 BMW, 2008 BMW, and my 2011 BMW. What you're saying is blowing my mind... Because all these years the beginning of any direction has always been cut off with Sirius/fm/am playing.
