Part1. Why Won’t My Apple Maps Talk?

Why won’t my Apple Maps talk? This is a surprisingly common question, but it’s an incredibly frustrating (and potentially even dangerous) issue to be faced with.

Indeed, many of us rely on our Apple Maps to get us where we need to go; without the sound working, you may be tempted to look at the map while driving, representing a major health and safety risk!

Fortunately, though, this doesn’t have to be the case, and there are numerous opportunities to ensure that your Apple Maps restores its normal functionality. We’ll be considering a few options as follows to help you find a suitable solution for your device overall.

Remember to Enable Maps Voice Navigation on iPhone

Before we go any further, we’ll consider the most obvious reason why Apple Maps might not be talking on your iOS 15 device.

In order for Apple Maps to provide talking voice navigation on your iPhone, you will need to enable this function from settings. To do so, head to settings > Privacy > location services. Then, select the toggle bar off and make sure it’s set as on.

If you notice that the location services toggle bar is showing as green, we recommend turning it off and restarting your iPhone device. Then, return to the Settings > Privacy > location services screen and re-enable location services, then test out Apple Maps to see if this might have resolved the error. After all, sometimes, restarting your iPhone device is the fastest way to fix issues.

Part2. Solutions to Fix the iPhone Maps is Not Talking Error

If checking location services hasn’t helped, there are several other methods you could try to fix the “Apple Maps is not Talking” error on your iPhone running iOS 15. Some of these options include:

Way1. Check that your sound is turned up loud enough to hear – it might seem like an obvious suggestion, but this is inevitably the most common reason why Apple Maps might not be talking during use. If the side volume buttons are set to loud, try checking the navigation menu by swiping up from the bottom of the screen. You could also check your device isn’t set to mute.

Way2. If your device is connected to your car via Bluetooth, make sure that the car’s radio volume is turned up; it’s easy to accidentally turn off the voice by turning your car’s speakers off!

Way3. Reset all network settings on your iPhone device by heading to settings > reset > reset network settings. Then, when you re-enable network settings, you may find that your iPhone is working again.

Bonus. FAQs About Apple Maps Not Talking/Working

Q1 Why Can’t I Hear Maps in my Car?

If you’re trying to use Apple Maps in your car but can’t hear the voice, the issue is most likely that your car’s speakers are turned down. Many cars, such as the Mazda 2, have separate volumes for navigation and radio systems, which is worth considering.

If this issue isn’t in the volume, you may have a problem with your Bluetooth connection; disconnecting and reconnecting might fix the issue. Otherwise, you may need to repair your iPhone device.

Q2 How Do I Make Apple Maps Talk Through Bluetooth?

You will need to have enabled voice navigation for your iPhone to enable talking through Bluetooth. Thereafter, simply head to Apple Maps on your iPhone device and set your destination before connecting the device to your car’s Bluetooth from the settings > Bluetooth page.

If your car doesn’t have built-in Bluetooth (common for older models), you likely won’t be able to use Bluetooth to connect your device.

There are many reasons why your sound might sometimes not work on your iPhone device. If this is something you have noticed, the first thing you should check is that the sound is actually turned up and that the device isn’t on mute.
