    I am a newbie here; apologies if this has been covered elsewhere but I couldn't find a similar topic.

    I have the 4th-gen Prius and the latest Touch2Go firmware. I prefer to use Google Maps on my mobile (a Samsung Galaxy S10) rather than the Toyota navigation system. This works well, with one exception: I find I have to leave the Touch2Go Media option set to Bluetooth, rather than selecting (for instance) FM or DAB, if I want to continue to hear the turn-by-turn instructioons from Google Maps.

    I'm surprised that the system doesn't appear to allow the instructions (from the Bluetooth source) to break through & mute the radio... but wouldn't be surprised if I'm simply doing something wrong.

    I'd be very grateful for advice on how to solve the problem; alternatively, is there a better system to use which *does* mute the radio?
