Have you tried to rotate the left control of the volume of the stereo when you are on navigation?
If you have enabled the speech correcly, you can control the volume of the speech with the left rotational control of stereo ;) (rotate it when the voice must be speak).

Yes, make sure it's clicked in and adjust the volume.

I was going to ask just that question. Took delivery on 1st November. I get plenty volume when the unit is out of the car - but in the car the M&M voice is almost inaudible. When the voice instructions begin the radio volume drops and then rises after the direction instructions.
Instruction manual refers to an illustration 'at the beginning of the chapter' but have yet to find the illustration it is referring to.

When The Maps and More voice is giving instructions turn the radio volume up.

Tried turning volume up - but then radio is deafening. Also prefer to concentrate on the road and not playing with the volume controls - chicken that I am.

You were increasing the volume as the Navigation was talking ? That should set the volume for the nav guidance, then it reverts back to the radio/media volume setting when the instruction has finished :)

I find that unless the radio is switched on first there is no sound on the satnav. Also the phone hands free won't work unless I have the radio on. Car is new - a week old.

Exactly - that is what powers the speakers - although you could use any of the media options if you didn't want the radio.

There is something wrong with your set up guys. I don't need to have the radio on for the sat nav sound to come out of the speakers.

Hi Abiabarth,

MIGHT be your radio ...

My M&M aslo didn't work with the radio at first ...

Get your radio manual!

First have a look if you see the "NAV" when you click the "MEDIA" button.
If not, add it (as "ON" in the radio menu).

If it is on ...
Search yourself a quiet area. Industrial area Friday afternoon or Saturday? Program a nav and always drive "wrong", so that the nice lady in the nav gives you advice at every corner ...
While or short after she speaks, you can dial the volume knob at your radio and the nav voice gets louder! After a few seconds, the volume function belongs to the radio again ...

You can also select/adjust how quiet the radio (music) shall get, while the lady in the nav is speaking to you.

A first adjustment should be made in a quiet area with no other traffic.
After you know what to do, you can adjust it anywhere.

Thanks Ospreywatcher - you are right the radio or other media must be switched on before using nav or phone before the sound will work. Incidentally my husband has an Audi and his radio automatically switches on when the ignition is turned which presumably achieves the same result by default.

I agree with Beevee ...
No ...

You need to setup the radio right (as I described before) ...
