Volume on bluetooth at MAX

I have the 430 radio in my 2012 Jeep. When i talk on the phone using bluetooth i have to put the volume at 100% to hear the other person. Is this normal. I mean I can hear them fine, but my volume is all the way up.

Bluetooth through the radio, right? I don't have to max out my volume through the vehicle speakers. But I've always thought bluetooth ear pieces were not loud enough and have never been able to use them. I love the bluetooth uconnect in the Overland.

I don't use a stereo blue tooth device, I use the ear style and I can hear everything just fine.
I assume like with my ear piece that turning up your phone has no effect?

I own the Cobra, bottom left of the page. I bought it to replace the El cheapo headset I got with my droid.

Sadface :(

Turn up the volume on your telephone while in a phone call. This should give it a little more

I have an iPhone 4 and the 430N with UConnect. When I get a phone call, the volume over the radio seems identical to the volume of whatever the radio was playing at the time, or was the last time I had it turned on.

I doubt it makes a difference over blue tooth. My over the ear doesn't change volume with the phone, there are two buttons on it that change the volume.

I noticed this with our new 12 wk2. The uconnect volume is damn near all the way up and the radio is no where near that loud to hear. I will see what the dealer says when I take it in for the 1st oil change.

okay, well I swapped to the RBZ radio today and damn the UConnect volume sucks. I have it at max and it can barely be heard. At volume level 10 it's silent. I have the volume on the cell turned all the way up and the UC volume at max. I wonder it there is an update to this. Going to have to ask the dealer.

Original owner says he had no issue when it was in his jeep.

I turn it all the way up but am deef as a post. When boosted half way is fine. Keep in mind the bluetooth volume is a different setting from the radio, you have to be in phone mode to set it.

Does where you have the volume on the phone set affect it ?

Not at 100% but I do have the volume turned up a bit. Like padgett, I'm a little hard of hearing You have to adjust the volume during a call.

By the way, and the suggestion was posted a year ago, using an over the ear headset or any over the ear audio device is illegal in most US states.

I'm really debating whether or not to take my Jeep in for this... I've been dealing with it for awhile now, and it just doesn't seem right... I have to keep my bluetooth volume at 28-30 to be able to hear anything... But radio volume is normal at 15-20. I recently had the bluetooth module replaced in an attempt to fix it, so I know it's not that. I'm assuming it's something with the radio it self. Has anyone else taken theirs to the dealership for a fix?

When my iPhone 4S is connected via Bluetooth, I have the radio volume at 20 and it seems plenty loud. I have not had this problem. What type of phone are you trying to connect with? And does the phone volume have any impact?
