Hello,

Just got my EC, and am enjoying it so far.

However, the warning buzzer for lane departure, signaling when there is someone in the blind spot etc. is very quiet when on the move with music playing.

Is there a way to increase the volume of this warning "buzzer" (this is what the user manual calls it)?

Thanks

I also wondered and didnt find anything and forgot to ask about it at service (like any of them would know anyways. They lack all knowledge if it isnt mechanical or hooked up to their computer).

I agree that the volume is very low and difficult to make out. I have hearing instruments from my many years of military service using heavy guns (industrial deafness) and they don't make it any easier to pick up the warnings when they go off. Most of the time it is the visual queue which is most prominent.

I don't see anything specifically in the manual about adjusting the alert/warning volumes but i would be surprised if it wasn't possible. What I find inexplicable is that in the 480+ page manual, the word "volume" does not appear at all!

All references to volume adjustment are in the SDA (Smartphone Link Display Audio) manual but I haven't played with any of the volume settings though there are some items that may affect it. There is an option for adjusting (SCV) Speed Compensated Volume (it has other names depending on the sound system installed) but I don't know whether it works just for audio of the sound system. It lists audio/volume adjustment in the text of the description. Page 85 of the 2018/2019 SDA owners manual. Might try it on my next sojourn...
