Pause Spoken Audio
Are you a big fan of podcasts or news reports via CarPlay? There’s a trick you can use to stop voices (like the navigation voice) from speaking over your current playback and getting everything mixed up.
- Head to Maps in your iPhone’s Settings.
- Choose Driving & Navigation.
- Look for the option to enable Pause Spoken Audio. Now, whenever an update comes along, CarPlay will pause what you’re listening to, provide the update, and then resume playback – so nothing gets missed.
Of course, this also works no matter how you are accessing Apple Maps, so CarPlay isn’t strictly needed.
