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.
