How to Adjust Only Google Maps Navigation Volume on Android


Google Maps is probably the best map out there, which comes with so many features and options. You can easily find any unknown places on Android’s Google Maps. This generally come with the stock Android OS and you do not have to install the app on your Android device as it is a built-in app of 99% Android mobiles.

Nowadays, most of the people use various maps like Google Maps, Here Maps etc. instead of notebook and pen or the physical maps to navigate through and find an unknown place. Some people often travel solo with the help of Google Maps.

However, if you are using Google Maps for a long time, you may know that there is an option called Google Maps Navigation. If you enable navigation on Google Maps, a voice will dictate you through the location or road from your current location to your destination. This is called Google Maps navigation, which helps the bike or car rider to go to a certain place, which he/she doesn’t know.


Sometime, we need a louder voice and sometime we need it lower. At such moment, if you use the Android’s volume up/down buttons to adjust the volume, you can do so. But, the problem is all the volumes including media player (in case a music is playing), system and navigation etc. will be adjusted together. This is obviously not a good thing at all because we cannot open the settings every time when we need to adjust the volume.

However, here is a tutorial that will help you to adjust only Google Maps navigation volume without any problem. But, you will have to set it for a particular navigation. For each path, you can set different volume level. Although, you cannot set the volume by levels like you can do for Android System volume or media player volume, yet, this is possible to increase/decrease the volume level.
