    Turning off Voice navigation

    Hi, is there a way to mute the voice element of the navigation on Android? (HTC Desire stock 2.2)

    I know that I can turn the volume down with the phone volume however if I do this then it lowers the volume of the music playing from the phone. I have read the manual included in the app which mentions muting the voice but alas I can not seem to do this.

    Any help is much appreciated as I think the product itself is a great little app and I would love to continue to use it but unless I can find a way to mute the voice, alas I will have to go back to the dreaded G#**le!

    Sorry, this is currently an app issue. The volume in the app cannot be in-/decreased but only through your device itself. We are working on it with our next update!

    Best regards,
    Christin

    Quick work-around.
    In the app, you can send the audio to the Sound Out Port or Bluetooth (I'd tell you exactly where, but the app is updating and won't launch yet). I selected to send sound out to Bluetooth, while I listen to my headphones, or vice-versa send sound to the audio out and feed my music through bluetooth. It's not elegant for muting, but it works.

    I would like to see the sound volume have three choices for the navigation:
    -Mute
    -Constant Volume selection; so i can select a constant volume separate from devices audio (music, video, etc.)
    -Auto-mute using acquire "audio focus"

    I really like the choice to select where the audio goes; i.e. bluetooth or audio out. Great job skobbler developers!!

    For what it's worth, I would also like to see this feature implemented. I frequently use navigation on public busses, to ensure I get off at the correct stop, and the audio navigation directions can be an annoyance if I am simultaneously trying to listen to something. Thanks!
