Default Can you set Radio and Bluetooth music to their own volumes?

I notice when they're the same volume the radio is louder so I have to turn it up for bluetooth (and plugged in) but once I disconnect (or unplug my phone) and it switches back to the radio, it is super loud.

I havenít been able to figure it out, Bluetooth or via AUX/USB volume input is always lower than radio. Itís super loud when you turn your car on when it reverts to radio.

Your ur best bet is to not leave radio on prior to turning car off. Just keep it on media tab and it wonít play the radio automatically

I have the same problem with radio being much louder than music off an SD card. I'm now in the habit of turning music on by turning the dial rather than pushing. That way it ramps up from 0 volume rather than resuming at the last setting. If I need to switch sources while it's on, I just need to remember to turn it down first.

I've never found anywhere for source-specific adjustments to equalize.

Go through the sound menu in MMI. You can set the input volume for each source independently.

I went though the sound menu and couldn't find where to change volumes independently. could you provide a picture or steps on how to do that?

Were you playing the sound / music via the input method you want to adjust? If not, play it and go to sound and press the left = menu to pull up the various input methods and then switch to it to adjust. Thatís what I did in my 2019.

Exactly. You need to be in the source you want to adjust.

Bluetooth music volume is set on the source...your phone. While streaming audio, adjust the volume with the phone's hardware volume control buttons. You may have to override a Max safe listening level pop-up in the phone ( true of Android) to get the volume up higher than mid-way. With the Bluetooth volume cranked all the way up on my phone there's no difference in volume on the car if I switch between radio/ sd media/ sat/ or Bluetooth streaming.

However each individual source level is still independently adjustable in MMI. I just had a brand new Allroad loaner a couple weeks ago, and the volume control on my phone was "locked out" during Bluetooth playback. It was kind of annoying after getting so used to having the adjustment in my car.

I put it on media (playing from an SD card), hit menu, select sound, and left=, all I get is another menu, with Sound, Telephone, and a few other entries - nothing with sources. It is somewhere else?
