    A curious problem with iOS 10. My phone links up through my car's Bluetooth, which I generally use for playing music. Since iOS 10 however, I am unable to listen to music and use Apple Maps, as this frequently causes the Maps to crash and lose my navigation.

    The same happens if I receive a phone call whilst using Apple Maps. It appears as though there's a multitasking bug in iOS10 with Apple Maps.

    Anyone else experienced the same thing?

    I can simultaneously run Waze, Apple Maps and either Spotify or Apple Music on the iPhone SE with no issues, also connected through car's own integrated Bluetooth. So can flick between Waze and Maps while the music is playing on the background. However, in both mapping apps I have all the sounds switched off.

    Are you using an older device? I used an iPhone 4s for a few years and by the end of its life with me my biggest complaint was probably related to not being able to listen to music through my car Bluetooth and do other things like play games or do GPS.

    No it's an iPhone 6S, connected to a Series 2 AW, both running the latest software. Really peculiar issue.

    As with almost all and every issue with iOS: your only options are (from least to most bothersome)
    A) reboot
    B) restore backup
    C) set up as new
    D) take it to Apple store

    With closed systems like iOS, there's nothing else you can do.
