Phone volume too low

2016 Grand Cherokee

When I am on a phone call using blue tooth I have the volume turned up to 38 and still have a hard time hearing the person on the phone. I am pretty sure I didn't have this issue when I first purchased the vehicle but I am not 100% sure. I see on the internet others have this issue but never see a fix. Any help would be appreciated.

I did search "phone" and "volume" with no luck in this forum specifically.

The phone volume level is different than the radio volume level. Try adjusting it while someone is talking to you on the phone and you should see a difference.

You also need to check the volume on the phone itself. My Android phone "helpfully" lowers the Bluetooth volume ("to avoid hearing damage") and if you crank it up during a call so you can hear, it'll "helpfully" lower it down again. I ended up installing an app called "Bluetooth Volume Control", which allows me to set an override volume (cranked to full, of course) when connected to BT (and you can have separate settings for multiple BT connections, in case you use earbuds and prefer it lower). The phone still displays the annoying warning on the first connection after a reboot, but otherwise it works.

RESOLVED...Thanks for the feedback. I think what made sense was "the radio and phone are independent of one another" and yes the volume is staying high, awesome....sarcasm.... Thanks again.... Adjusting the phone volume made the difference...
