Hi Everyone - I've been messaging with Punch-Card about my PROMPT Volume control/function disappearing when switching out of Sync 3 navigation to Android Auto/Waze navigation. Some of you may know that Punch-Card was a beta-tester of Waze/Android Auto. I don't think Punch-Card will mind that I've posted our discussion here. Maybe doing so will help someone else or generate more discussion. - Timmer

PROMPT volume is present and works fine in Sync3/Lincoln navigation. But when I switch to Waze/AA its gone. Frustrating, as when AUDIO volume is set at a comfortable listening level, it is hard to hear the Waze turn-by-turn direction prompts, street names, etc... I'm in the midst of researching this, but no luck thus far. Any thoughts or suggestions? Let me know here or on the 2016 MKX board. I don't visit here much but will check for replies from you. Timmer

- You know I just noticed the issue of no volume yesterday or the day before, and I thought it was just me, or it was in the middle of processing some other command. I will have to try tomorrow on my drive home from work. As I use it every day, not for the navigation, but it tells me the shortest route. And that has saved my "you-know-what" several time.
. I will let you know my results. Mike
Timmer Sent 18 December 2017 - 09:34 PM - Hey Mike - Thanks for the quick reply. I still have volume, but the issue is that the Sync 3 PROMPT volume control completely disappears and doesn't work when Sync 3 is in WAZE/AA mode. PROMPT volume is there and works properly when in Sync 3/Navigation mode. When I turn up/down the volume when WAZE/AA is giving audible directions, it controls AUDIO volume only, not PROMPT volume like it should. The problem is, when AUDIO volume (music) is set at a comfortable level, I can barely hear the WAZE directions. Just started using Waze/AA a week or two ago. Funny thing is, I'm pretty sure the PROMPT volume and AUDIO volume both worked perfectly the first time I hooked WAZE/AA up to Sync 3 in my MKX. Thus far I've seen no other comments anywhere on the internet about this problem. Let me know your thoughts, and if you know how to get Tech Support on Waze/AA. Lincoln Concierge / In-Vehicle Technology hasn't a clue... Timmer
Punch-Card Sent Today, 07:45 AM - I checked yesterday on the way home, I turn on voice navigation in Waze/AA and was to adjust the volume of Waze. I think it titled it "prompt volume", but I had to do it quickly or I did not adjust Waze. I did upgrade to V3 instead of the official v2.3, I am not sure that this would make a difference. Mike
