Windows Maps updated for Mobile Insiders with Bluetooth audio navigation option
Windows Maps is getting a pretty nifty update for Windows 10 Mobile Insiders frustrated with audio performance while navigating. Announced by Dave_MSFT on Reddit, this update includes a new option for playing voice navigation over Bluetooth when available.
Prior to this update, Maps would play navigation audio over the phone audio channel in a car. This could result in lower quality audio than expected. The option to transmit navigation over Bluetooth should make for a clearer audio experience.
If you're a Windows Insider, you should be able to grab this update now. You'll want to make sure you're on version 5.1706.* of the Maps. Once updated, you can find the Bluetooth option under the "Play voice navigation" section of the turn-by-turn navigation options in the Setting menu.

Anyone who say that Windows on Mobile devices is dead, or even Windows Mobile for a fact, is dead IS DEAF, DUMB, AND MOST OF ALL BLIND.
It's a FACT that WM is alive. If it were dead your comment wouldn't even make sense... That's like asking "where's George? He's late for the meeting",, knowing he got hit by a car and killed..... So, are you saying your comment doesn't make sense, or WM is Alive?
