Default Can't change volume of GPS Navigation

So when I'm using Google maps app for navigation with speaker directions, I can't seem to change the volume of the directions. I can see the volume slider go up or down, but it has no affect on the navigation. Anyone noticed this or know what i'm missing?

Google Maps voice is mixed into the media channel and not the notification channel. If you want to use the volume control buttons you have to change it while the voice is speaking. Otherwise, you have to go into Settings -> Sound -> Volumes and change the media volume (top volume bar).

One thing I loved about Cyanogenmod was the expanded volume control indicator.
