New to Acura, wife needs Bluetooth help

My wife wants to use iPhone for navigation in 2017 MDX base model. Phone has been paired and navigation cues came over audio in car. For some reason this stopped working. Went by Acura dealer and their solution was to drop iPhone off of the Bluetooth pairing. Navigation is now solely from iPhone and audio is Acura provided. Should not these two systems work together?

Was any updates done to the phone before it stopped working correctly? I had the issue with carplay in my 19 MDX not working and causing the info-tainment system to disconnect and restart every 5-30 seconds from IOS 12 to IOS 13. It wasn't until months later with update IOS 13.2.3 the system started working correctly.

In the meantime, I still had my iphone 6S plus connected by bluetooth, had Waze on the phone, and got Waze commands/warnings on the front MDX speakers.

I would also try apple maps, google maps, and Waze to see if one of those apps had an update that effected the bluetooth navi audio because of an update.
