Set the Default Voice Navigation Application on Microsoft Lumia 535
Edited by Thor, Sid Bedekar, Eng, DeleteQnA
Hello and welcome to VisiHow. In this video, I am going to show you how to set the default voice navigation application using a Microsoft Lumia 535.
To begin, turn the phone on by pressing the power button located on the right hand side of the screen.
Next, swipe the lock screen up to get to the home screen.
We have multiple apps that can be used for navigation on this device. We have the HERE Drive + tile. This is one application for finding directions.
Another application is Maps.
Both of these apps can help you navigate but one may or may not be the right choice based on your situation. Let me give you an example, press and hold the search button at the bottom right of the screen to open Cortana.
I am going to ask Cortana for directions and it is automatically going to select an application for me. It may not be the correct app choice for me.
As you can see, it has chosen the app for me. It has chosen HERE Drive + and it says, "NO NAVIGATION: Your route runs through a country or area where navigation isn't available yet".
If I press okay, it is not going to help me navigate, it will just show me where the location is on the map. There is no option to change which app Cortana chooses, she just chooses it automatically.
What we need to do is change the default app. To do this, go back to the home screen and press on Maps.
Once open, press the menu icon with three dots on the bottom right.
In settings, we are going to scroll down and find the "Set default voice navigation app" option. Depending on what apps you have installed, you will have a list of navigation apps to choose from. We are going to select Windows Phone maps.
Now, if we go back to Cortana and ask her the same question, she is going to use the app that I have selected.
As you can see, Cortana has now used the default app that we have selected. It is using the Microsoft Map application which actually gives us directions.
This is one of the benefits of knowing how to change the default application for navigation. This concludes our tutorial on how to change and set a default voice navigation application.
