    My original though was to have the stock transom remote controller placed, but after discussion with the COO, the likelihood of using is low, and cost vs resale value added doesn’t pan out. She won’t let me wear my Apple Watch in the water for fear of losing or damaging it (none of this mattered when I was remodeling our house and in the crawl spaces or having my hand in a wall when I was remodeling our house). She rarely leaves the drivers seat, and controls the sound She’s distant descendent of Bluetooth. Does that count?

    I'm sure it's quite different than the plebian Fusion HU I have.

    With mine, I set my phone's media volume to max and then use the HU knob to actually control volume.

    I love my boat, but the stereo logic is one of my major beefs.

    On the Vision system with my Samsung S8, the system completely controls volume on my phone. Changing volume on my phone does nothing, until it reaches zero, then it's muted.

    The problem with that is that the minimum volume, both on the master volume and on each zone is 5%. With all zones at 5% and master at 5%, it's too loud to hold a normal conversation. The only way I can have music and have a normal conversation is to turn all zones but the bow to zero.

    Additionally, the speed sensitive volume logic is asinine. There are several presets - surf, wake, cruise, etc. There is no way to set the max overall volume for each preset. So if I have the preset to cruise, as soon as I throttle up, it increases to 100%. If I try to decrease the volume, it keeps jumping back to 100%. After a few minutes, it will finally let me decrease the volume. Same for every other preset, depending on its factory set max volume.

    It should accept user input as an override and stop trying to go to the max preset. We can change the max volume for each zone in the presets, but not max master volume. These 2 things are massive oversights to this system.

    Something is weird with your volume though at 5% I can't even hear the music (we can easily hold a normal conversation at volume 30) . Is it the same with other phones? (maybe the s8 has a very high output level)(my google pixel also doesn't allow me to change volume but it's perfectly workable volume levels from silent to too loud)

    As for the speed volume, turn the sensitivity down to 3. i've found the same as you at anything above 3 it won't let you take control. At 3 mine allows me t turn it down at any point.

    I agree it's poorly programmed but I haven't had an issue with it since turning the sensitivity down. Still not my favorite setup but it works ok.

    Yeah maybe the output from the phone is too high. When my wife's iPhone is connected, it's far quieter. But the iPhone also has volume control through the phone.

    Anything other than 5 is useless. It doesn't adjust as much. At sensitivity 5, it goes to min volume (5) at idle, and preset max at speed (between 70 and 100, depending on the preset).

    Agreed it's not ideal but for me I'd rather have control over it than have it auto adjust to full and zero.
    3 works just fine for me, but I do use the steering wheel controls or the touch screen fairly regularly to change volume manually which I'd prefer not to have to do.
    I just can't stand it when it won't let me turn it down, I agree that's completely ridiculous. So I deal with making more adjustment manually in order to have the ability to turn it down if I need to.

    Yeah auto volume is useless if you have to adjust it every time anyway.

    Surfing isn't an issue really, it's always somewhere between 60-70, and works well. It's any other preset that always wants to go to 100.
