    Which "voice" are you using to give the instructions?

    Are you saying that there no problem with the phone?
    That you hear the voice instructions.

    That this has all to do with a Bluetooth connection connection in your car?

    Seeing that it works in your friends car.
    Is it over Bluetooth or not?

    As for MirrorLink it will only work with Google map app and Waze map app.

    What I am trying to say here is the more info you give up front the better help can be.

    Just saying your s8 plus has a problem when there is more too this than your s8 plus.

    Does Handsfree calling and receiving calls over Bluetooth work?

    If so you need to check the settings in TomTomGO.

    If all that is OK Then you need to explain to the Support Team all what you have done.

    Seeing that you said it works in your friends car with no problems at all.

    If it does not work with handsfree then there is a problem with the car radio.....

    Yes it worked in my friends car but it was not connected to his blue tooth. When in my car Citroen berlingo with morrow link. I no it won't work with morrow link so I don't use the usb port that connects to morrow link just the normal cigarette charger I receive phone calls with blue tooth turned on but no tomtom turn by turn sound
    Thanks for all your help

    This problem of disappearing audio nav instructions has been discussed before and is not confined to any one make of phone. It often occurs on my Nexus 6, running the latest version of TT GO, not using Bluetooth. The symptoms are the same - announces arrival times and then refuses to give audio navigation instructions. Another contributor found that if he/she changed the units setting, quit and re-started the app, changed the setting back to that required (eg I use mine in auto mode) then the voice instructions re-appeared. And no, I have no idea why this works, but it has (usually) worked for me.

    I've also found that if a navigation instruction clashes with a speed camera warning, then quite often this will 'kill' the audio nav instructions. Not always, which is puzzling.
