Nav Volume Question

I picked up my 2013 328i on Monday & am still getting oriented. When the nav speaks up, it nicely turns down the radio, but the nav voice isn't loud enough. Can anyone tell me how to increase the nav voice? I have found multiple routes to the radio volume, but haven't had any succcess with the nav volume.

You can press the Speaker button in the nav display to have it repeat the last instruction so you can set the volume then rather than waiting for it to talk again.

Nice tip. I didn't think of that so found myself waiting until the next audio cue to grab for the volume control.

Thanks! It doesn't speak for long, but I hovered over the button until she spoke & got it where I want it now.

There is also a voice command: >Repeat voice instructions< that will get the nav to talk to you.
