Sat nav volume

Have had my new baby for 3 days now and I love it

I now look forward to even the most mundane of drives.

But, I find the volume of the sat nav guidance too quiet when I have my music playing even at normal volume.

I can't seem to find an adjustment for the guidance volume. Maybe i'm missing something obvious.

You adjust it with the volume knob as it's talking.

Only when the woman is talking, turn the volume up as you would for the radio and she will issue commands louder. Joy.

This seems so dumb. By the time I get to the volume knob, she's done speaking. Also, sometimes the volume on my radio drops to accommodate the nav voice. I don't get how it all works either.

I find it nicer to just shut her up I mean keep the nav on mute. I just watch the directions on the HUD.

Got to anticipate it. As you are approaching a turn just keep your hand on the dial and then adjust.

Sat Nav Arrival Time

Since you guys are so clued up. I have another question.

My arrival time predicted on the Sat Nav is wildly optimistic. To arrive at my destination at the suggested time, I would have to average 100km/h (60mph) LOL. This is in a metropolitan area.

Any thoughts?

I have not had to adjust the Nav volume since I initially set it, so, yes, it seems to remember it.
