How to Increase Navigation Volume in Google Maps on iPhone or iPad

Google Maps voice commands help you navigate directions in your city. But the city traffic or the people sitting in your car keep disturbing you. To listen to those voice prompts clearly, you need to increase guidance volume in Google Maps in iPhone and iPad.

By default, the Google Maps navigation volume is at an average level. But that doesn’t help when you are driving on a bike with continuous honking, or when you are in a car going on a vacation, and everyone’s singing loudly. In such cases, you need to increase Google Maps guidance volume on your iPhone or iPad.

A similar navigation volume control is available in the default iOS Maps app, but as it is not generally used by many, a very few have actually noticed it. Anyways, if you are having trouble listening to the navigation commands, here’s a quick guide at your rescue. Follow the steps given below to increase Google Maps navigation volume on your iPhone or iPad.
