Do you use your iPhone for navigation while listening to the radio?

So I finally tried out Waze the other night, because I was going somewhere after work, and every route I have tried previously is just clogged with traffic. Waze got me there in record time.

My dilemma is that when my iPhone is connected to the Bluetooth, unless I decide to listen to BT streaming music from my phone, which I rarely do, I don't hear the voice guidance from Waze (or any other app).

I know I can turn off the BT on my phone, but this kind of defeats the purpose of hands free if I need to make/take a call. Plus, it's still hard to hear the voice with the radio on.

Just looking for possible solutions.

Thanks.

You can set Wave to give voice prompts through the phone speaker.

i usually just listen to spotify/pandora while using Wazes. Wazes automatically lowers the radio when giving directions, and increases volume when directions are done being provided.
