Turn-by-Turn Loses Audio While Navigating
Greetings. Also, congratulations and big thanks for Locus Pro -- best outdoor nav app ever. Now with a bit of a glitch though. Since my Galaxy S6 upgraded to Android Nougat, when I navigate my TCX Courses, I can hear the turn-by-turn instructions just fine for a while. Then, sometimes, the audio just gets lost, and I can no longer hear any text-to-speech voices.
This seems to happen whenever I go off course on real-time outdoor navigation. First, I hear the Locus warning beeps to let me know I'm going the wrong way... Soon, audio for Locus Pro is lost.
Other apps relying on text-to-speech also lose audio at this time, by the way. Interestingly, when I close Locus (completely close--not just clicking twice on the Back button, but by *also* clicking on the Recent Apps button, then on the Close All, or on the "X" for the Locus app specifically), then the other apps instantly regain text-to-speech audio (without having to close them first).
I can then re-open Locus, and audio for turn-to-turn navigation text-to-speech will be back to normal in Locus too. Ahem--until this problem happens again, that is; and then I must restart Locus once again, etc. Very annoying (and not great for navigation!).
I think someone else reported a similar problem on this support forum (their problem title: "No voice command when using navigation over GPX tracks" -- I use tracks from imported TCX Courses, but I imagine there is something in common between their GPX problem and the one I'm describing here. Hmm...).
Oh, by the way, in case you wonder: yes, I have aleardy gone into settings, and tried to switch between Media and Notifications audio streams. Same thing happens on both streams. Also, as you will notice in the explanation above, TTS works just fine, except temporarily, when this problem occurs with Locus.
Again, I only noticed this problem after my Galaxy S6 upgraded to Android Nougat. I wonder though... Maybe Nougat has nothing to do with this problem, and the glitch is really just something that started with a recent Locus update. Hmm... hmm... Maybe both Nougat and Locus? ;)
Either way, I would HUGELY appreciate it if you could please look into this asap. THANKS!
