    Exclamation Problem: Bluetooth / Music / Navigation

    Was wondering if anyone (else) has encountered any problems with this...

    When I am (simultaneously):
    1) Charging
    2) Connected to my car stereo via Bluetooth (Subaru Outback '13)
    3) Playing music (using default GS4 music widget)
    4) Navigating w/ Google Navigation

    The Google Navigation voice cuts out half way through giving the direction.
    "In 250 feet, turn right onto" ... ... ... ... nothing
    It's really horrible. This is the primary use for my phone & it just fails miserably.

    Update:
    Winamp doesn't interrupt nav voice, but I lose BT controls on steering wheel.
    AVia doesn't interrupt either and keeps BT control functionality.
    Both, however, crash - completely at random...
    (They think the music is still playing but no audio is on.)

    All of this is resolved by using Aux instead of BT.
    Leads me to believe it is BT related.
    Can anyone else confirm this?
    (So I know if mine is defective or if this is product-wide bug)

    Thanks,
    Dave

    I don't have bluetooth, but the symptoms scream software related, not hardware.

    My initial thought was that this may have been the result of GS4 Music App trying to take audio priority over Nav too early.
    But the universal crashing of ALL music apps playing over BT makes me believe the interrupt responsible may be from the car (just a guess though).
    Or, as you said, it could all be in the software. I plan on testing this with my dad's GS4 later to see if I encounter the problem on a second phone.

    Bluetooth is funky. I rarely use it for reasons like this. Not everything can play nice together. Try using your S4 in the same manner but connected to a bluetooth headset or speaker, different car etc and see if the problem persists.
