The bug can be reproduced in the following scenario:

  • run android app producing audio (tested with AntennaPod and/or ForeverMap)
  • start QuickRadio

==> Quick radio takes the audio output, the other podcast player nor navigation is able to play any audio. QuickRadio/Media (builtin Jolla) does not have to play, it is enough the app is started and played in the past at least once.

In this constellation I cannot listen to radio while navigating.

Problem noticed after update (preceded by complete reset of the device) to

i have the same with music player and google maps navigation, wonder if using an android app for music works

Using an android music app is a valid workaround, I've tried android music app with here map beta and the navigation voice from android app did properly mute the android music app and restore after it finishes.

@csslayer you approach works, but it is only workaround
