Please tell us some basic information before asking for help:

  1. Model Name: Zenfone 9
  2. Firmware Version: latest
  3. Rooted or not: nope
  4. Frequency of Occurrence: always
  5. APP Name & APP Version (If your issue relates to the app): Google Maps 11.51.0704


I have a problem with google maps navigation when ZF9 is connected to car audio via a2dp.

Despite "use bluetooth" in google maps navigation setting is turned off the phone tries to play voice guidance via car speakers. Actually it starts with built-in speakers and in the middle of the message it switches to car speakers. Which is annoying if I have selected different audio source in car multimedia system, as I can only hear about half of navigation guidance message.

Is there any workaround for this ?


  • It seems it may be related to Asus Volume Control, once I've switched to native volume control the issue is gone.

    I will test it a bit more.
