I'm new to navigation, the woman's voice came on, but then later it disappeared. I clicked, un-clicked mute, volume was at max, still no more voice, just display.

Also, at the end, a color 360ยบ picture comes up of the final deistination and does not leave. I could not get back to the home screen to go home. I had to use Waze to get home. If fact now, hours later, all that is on Google Maps: the street I finished on. No menu, no exit, nothing, just this photo.

And with Waze, also no voice. Thanks.

Bluetooth is on, and actually connected for the regular phone. Is Bluetooth being on relevant? The navigation works, just not the womans voice anymore. And the picture is stuck.

If Bluetooth is connected, the audio might be routed to whatever Bluetooth device your iPhone is connected to.

Let's say you are in your car, and the iPhone is connected to the car audio via Bluetooth, you would not hear anything directly from the iPhone. Is your car radio / volume on ?

Try to turn off Bluetooth off your phone, and see what happens.

There's always the tried and true iPhone restart.

That's possible Turtle, it could have been coming into the bluetooth earpiece which was on, but I was not wearing.
Ok, I'll test it out. What about though when I was done it froze the street image. Could not even use the app to go home.

Bluetooth doesn't care if you are or are not wearing the earpiece. If it's connected, that's where the audio is going to go. I'll bet that's what is happening here.

Thanks GH, but the audio starting beaming out load at first. Will test...

The app finally cleared, but anyone know why it got stuck on that destination image? no menu, nothing, had to use another app to get home!

You don't even need to reboot, just kill the app if it's stuck (double-tap home button and swipe the crashed app up).

Yes, but my suggestion to reboot was more aimed towards the audio issue.

If it wasn't Bluetooth, it might have been something else that gets cleared out upon reboot.
