    Is it just me or has anyone else noticed?

    When switching into GMaps for navigation from the Uber app. the GMaps volume is decreased considerably, even though GMaps preferences are set to "Louder" and that doesn't change. I use a bluetooth earpiece for nav, if that makes any difference. This never happens switching into GMaps from another app, like Lyft or AroundMe, just the Uber app.

    If I get a phone call, or some other app that uses sound, the Gmaps volume resets to normal. Only the Uber app lowers the volume.

    This is iOS 11 and an iPhone 7S, btw

    Uber lowers the volume so they can hear you better, lol.
    Uber's Guber likes this.

    I've noticed GMaps and Waze the volume is reset so low....only on bluetooth. On speaker mode it is fine.
