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.

Windows Maps updated for Mobile Insiders with bluetooth audio option

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.

Thanks to thaman04 for the tip!
