    NAV VI Voice Prompts via BMW Audio System?
    « on: 2019-01-01 01:35:05 »
    Is there any simple way to be able to receive the NAV VI voice prompts through my 2017 RT audio system?  Or must I invest in a blue tooth communication system for my helmet?  I find it incredible that I can't get the GPS voice commands through the audio system.

      Are you asking if you can get the voice prompts through the bike speakers and without using a headset?  I have heard voice prompts through my bikes speakers on my 2018RT before I got my bluetooth headset.

        Yes, that is what I am asking.  I have been unable to get voice commands through the speakers of my 2017 RT.  I do occasionally hear a "beep" through the RT's audio system that I think is caused by the GPS, but that is it.

          I believe there is a menu setting for turning on voice prompts in the NAV VI.  Have you tried looking at the NAV VI settings?

            Sorry to take so long to reply....yes I have turned on voice prompts in the NAV VI menu but I still get nothing.  If you are certain that you can get them through your RT's speakers then I will have to play with the menus again and see if I can get it to work.  I have asked the dealer about this and they are under the impression it won't work through the bike's speakers but they are a small dealership and I am not sure if they are correct.  Thanks kioolt.

              Have you posted on the BMW Luxury Touring forum, there is a large RT section and most are in North America, so would probably be more likely to have speakers on than in Europe
