How audio works with Navdy

Navdy uses your car’s audio system. If you don’t have an audio system, we’ll use your phone’s speaker or microphone. You can control your music from the Navdy Display whether you connect to your car stereo using Bluetooth or a cable. No need to change how you currently listen to music—we’ve got you covered!

Make and receive phone calls 

Navdy uses your car or phone’s microphone and speaker so you can talk on the phone hands-free while you’re driving.

Tip: If you use Bluetooth to make phone calls, you’ll need to adjust “Call Audio Routing” in your iPhone settings. You can do this by navigating to your iPhone Settings > General > Accessibility > Call Audio Routing > enable Bluetooth Headset.
