    I'm coming from Android where I routinely used Spotify + Google Maps together at the same time to provide navigation + music for my car rides.
    Spotify would play until Maps had directions for me, the music would pause, google maps would read the direction, and then the music would continue playing.

    So far while using Xbox Music + Verizon Navigator as soon as I go into the VZ Navigator application the music stops for good. If I try to switch back to the music then VZ Navigator closes and I can't get back to it without relaunching it (thus pausing the music).

    Is this a limitation of the platform? Or is this exclusively a problem with the Verzion Navigator app?

    First what kind of phone do you have?

    Second, if you're in your on a drive and you want to do this, here's my advise:
    Choose your playlist or selection of songs to play and press play (from the music + videos hub)

    Open your navigation app and start your navigation.

    If the music stops, simply press a volume button and press play on the media drop down bar.

    Those steps are only if VZW navi. pauses your music and doesn't stop it altogether. If it's the latter, then i'd recommend using a difference navigation app since it would seem that's a problem with that specific app.

    isn't it dangerous to operate the phone while driving? Especially since the navigation system has just sent out some information, it might be in a situation in which driver needs to concentrate on driving

    Erm... no?
    What was your old device? I had a Focus. I could only do as such with the inline remote on my headphones and that was with the pause/play button, not the volume keys

    Can anyone confirm a navigation app that DOES allow BG music?

    And also... my Trophy AND 8x give me the ability to skip songs when hitting the volume rockers.. is this what you are referring to?


    Edit: Sorry guys - misread. I have never had that functionality either. boxshot_20121209054817.jpg

    Nokia Drive beta (lowers music volume and plays audible direction aloud)
    Bing Maps... (Pauses music and plays direction, then resumes music)

    Turn-By-Turn Navigation (doesn't lower or pause music, but will run while playing music).
