Air fan turns down when GPS talks

I have a 2016 Enclave. When I connect my iPhone7 to Bluetooth and use the Apple Maps app, my air turns down every time the app comes on to give me the next direction. Once the gps lady stops talking, the air fan goes back to where it was before. How do I keep this from happening? I live in Georgia and I’m burning up when I’m trying to follow map directions. The app is set to “play voice over Bluetooth” and “play Bluetooth as phone call”. I’ve turned off the “play Bluetooth as phone call but then the gps just speaks through my phone and not the car’s sound system.

As we say in the software industry, That's not a bug it's a feature!
I had an 09 and it worked that way on mine too. Not only when the Nav speaks but when your on a phone call. If the AC is running on high the microphone will not be able to capture your audio not to mention not being able to hear the instructions.
In your case, the nav only speaks for a few seconds, hard to believe the temperature in the cabin can rise that much with the ac fan turned down to low for about 5-10 seconds.
Now if you are going to be on a call for a while then I could see the problem. Especially if you get on a call when you first get in the car and it hasn't had a chance to cool down yet.
I will confess, although I didn't like this feature at first I got used to it and began to appreciate it after a while.
As for being able to disable it? I went through all the configuration menus on my 09 and never saw a setting for that. That may be different in newer models. Check your owners manual for programmable settings and report back if there is one.

If you watch the screen, it will act like it does when you place a call through bluetooth.
