play voice over bluetooth setting is gone

Many car radios will not play Map directions when the phone is connected. Mine is like that. I need to turn off "play voice over bluetooth" so that my Maps App will use my phone's speaker. I have an new Pixel Pro 6 and this setting was there until recently. Now it has disappeared and my phone tries to talk through my radio (only works during a phone call) and now I do not hear my map instructions anymore.

I guess this is Android or Google making change for the sake of changes. This is very annoying. Either I get to have my phone connected and not have map voice or I get map voice but my phone is disconnected.

Anyone know of solution?
