    Coming from Android this was childs play, I could open an audio book from my file explorer, have it play, and then open my Waze navigation at the same time as I like to have it open while I drive for the crowdsourcing.

    I've tried to figure this out on iOS, but don't see a solution. I am jailbroken so I don't mind using a JB app or solution. I'd like to listen to my audiobooks while I have Waze open.

    Anyone else?

    Any background audio file, whether from the Music app or any other app, can play while Waze is running.

    Ever since we have had navigation in ios this has been available. Are you using some non mainstream player to play your music? The worst thing that happens is, when navigation is dictating a direction, the music volune is cut down to about 20% (continues okayibg in the background) intik the dictation is complete.

    Music apps I have tried: music (stock), pandora, Iheartradio
    Navigation apps: maps (apple), waze, Google maps, navigon (this one not in over two years though.

    I have no problems running rhapsody in the background with waze running. Just went on a road trip doing that; should be the same for any other app that outputs audio.
