Lyft Amp, bluetooth, navigation and audio

4010 Views 11 Replies 9 Participants Last post by  B - uberlyftdriver
I have a Nexus 5X and I drive a 2016 Honda Fit. When I’m in the car I can’t hear the navigation instructions if I have bluetooth turned on. So I never use bluetooth when I’m working because I won’t hear navigation. However, the Lyft Amp requires bluetooth. The 2016 Honda Fit does not support Android Auto, so that’s not an option – I already tried it. Is there a workaround or should I forget about using the Amp? These are specific requirements, but maybe someone else out here has the same and I’m just looking for advice. TIA!

You pair the Amp with your phone.
Your phone pairs with the cars BT.
Do not pair your Amp to the cars BT.

In your navigation settings there's a option to turn it on and off.

This is the stock gps with lyft. I have mine set to no audio.

If your want audio click Audio Settings and click all audio

And to make the sound come out the car speaker click Enable Bluetooth Audio

Thanks for the help!

I actually love the glow of the Amps coming toward me.

Just me...

I wish Uber had a serious equivalent.
I like the idea of Amp, as long as I can get it to work! My main issue is with bluetooth in my car. I think I'm doing it wrong and got some good advice.
