Should the Mute map button unmute as well?

Post by Peobody »

I have enabled the display of the Mute map button and have found its behavior odd. There isn't any indication of what the current state is (muted or unmuted) and the button will only mute. It won't unmute so can't be used as a toggle between mute and unmute. Is this normal? I have only tried using it with the internal speaker of the XT so don't know if the behavior would be different when a headset is connected.

I just returned from a ride and can report that the Mute button only mutes. You can't unmute with it. Spoken navigation interrupts intercom communication even though the spoken navigation is muted.

Yes I confirmed with garmin that it only mutes. They say its by design. Not very helpful, of course it should toggle.

I have suggested they change it, but am not holding my breath..
