Speed sensative radio ?

Is the radio speed sensative ? I mean the quicker you drive the louder it gets ? Does it have this function ?

It's called SVC, and it works well.

I agree. I think it's a nice feature and one I have had in other cars.

You can also set it to off, low, medium and high. The dealer set it to high on my car when we were going through the car when I picked it up.

Can be useful sometimes

Mines always full blast so rarely notice the difference, however with book on CD it's a handy feature, when you get on the motorway.

It's a shame the receiver is so poor the radio volume is all over the place a lot of the time anyway.

I must be one of the lucky ones as my radio is great.

Never really used my radio, except to try and find the Hatton return fight, but couldn't

You can also, via the settings, decide by how much the volume increases. I've got mine set to "Hi" as it does get a bit noisy at times.

On non Sat Nav models, press the manual tuner button (on the LHS of radio on RHD models) and it flicks through Bass, Treble, Balance, Fader and then SVC then turn the same knob to set Off, Low, Med, High.
