Radio

Ok so if I am listening to mp3s then the volume is about 7 but if I want to listen to the radio then I need to turn it up to about 14 to get the same volume. The problem is that, same as the Grande, when you turn on the ignition it automatically turns on to MP3. So that means I get blasted by loud music.

Does anyone know of a way to either stop the system coming on automatically when the ignition is turned on, or to equalize the volume so there is not such a drastic difference.

Pretty sure if you turn off the radio it wont automatically come on again on next startup.

Also ive been told if you "Stop" (Voice Command) the MP3s playing and swap to radio it'll stay on radio.

Think theres a few other little ways of tuning things to your liking too, personally i like the adjust volume to speed option, but as i listen to MP3s 99% of the time i dont know what its like for radio

Re: Radio

Well, it should come on and off, if that's how you left it. But sometimes mine just does what it likes.

I think there is a volume option on the radio, to slowly increase volume the next time you use it? I think.

Re: Radio

I would suggest trying the adjust volume to speed option, see if this helps? Surely bein stationary means it starts low?!

Re: Radio

Look in the menu (digital display in speedo, rpm area)

Not sure but there may be something in there.
