How to turn off turn-by-turn voice directions on Apple Maps, Google Maps and Waze on iPhone

If you regularly use navigation apps like Waze or Maps while driving then it’s no surprise that these can be maddening interruptions during conversations with other passengers as well as trying to listen the radio. In addition, they often repeat instructions just seconds later which makes following them even more difficult if one wants full attention on what he/she is doing at all times! This problem becomes unbearable in long routes where there are many turns and could easily lead people giving up because their minds begin wandering off onto something else (like how great traffic has been lately). But luckily we have an answer for this:

Waze

    1. From the map screen, tap on the loudspeaker icon at the bottom center.
    1. Waze gives you a few options. You can turn on alerts only so you will be notified of hazards and police, or you can turn the sound off altogether. Alternatively, if you just want less talking you can choose a voice that does not include street names (just tap on Voice directions and choose a voice that doesn’t say “Including street names” beneath it.
