    Hi All

    Anyone figured how to lower the volume of the bluetooth connect bong noise that the rns makes when it has connected to your cellphone, I've checked adaptions/coding in vag 77 & cant see one, maybe I am blind, but man its loud & bloody annoying, I dont mind a quieter noise but god bit to loud.

    Thanks.

    Nigel.

    EDIT: There is now a solution to this problem, please pass on your thanks to VRStu:

    Ok you have to be quick, but when you hear the 'bong' you can lower the volume by twiddling the volume knob. It will remember the setting the next time.

    I am sure I tried this before and yes it lowered the "bong" for that instance but future "bongs" were at their usual very loud level i.e. it did not remember the bong level.

    Would be interested if anyone gets it to remember the lower level ....

    Im my experience it wont lower it for very long. There is no VAG-COM coding to do anything about this either.

    Tested guys & didnt work, it did when it connected & I lowered the tone ok, then when disconnected lowered the tone, but next time it didnt remember the setting atall, went back to same volume level, tried several times, any more ideas?

    You can lower the tone just before it does the bong, which we know when this is as the radio mutes 1st, then 3-4 seconds later it bongs, incase you wanna try yourselves, same as when it disconnects it mutes radio then several seconds later it bongs, its in those few seconds you seem to be able to lower the volume, but it doesnt stick next time round, maybe I need to do combination of ignition etc, I'll keep trying though.

    I think the latest BT module is 8P0 862 335 Q.

    As per my previous post, there is no VAG-COM coding to change this.

    Anyone found a resolution to this. Mine has become noticably louder than before and I can only assume two possible reasons -

    It's a changable setting - but what??
    It's to do with SDS as I think I only noticed it when I did the SDS hack.

    have you tried lowering the volume using the steering wheel dial at the moment the beep kicks in? that's how you lower the nav lady - turn the dial while she is speaking.

    The bong is ok. The worst is doing any sort of bluetooth call with an iPhone and having your ears bleed from the screeching noise before the phone starts dialling.

    just made me sleepy & preferred something else thanks, lol

    anyway I'm glad to hear its not just the tocco makes that loud screeching noise, I have a feeling the iphone & tocco have the same chipset cause the tocco also had call cut of & signal issues as per the iphone

    & Marc sorry mate tried that & it does work intially but it changes back to standard volume on most occassions, oh well have to stick with it but damn that screeching is loud

    It doesn't do that with firmware 2.2 and your ring tone also comes through the speakers.

    I thought I had this sorted, sat franticly rolling the roller on the steering wheel to turn the volume down as the phone connected and it seemed to work but then it's gone back up again.

    It's not the SDS firmware as I've just SDS'd another unit today.

    You have 2? 1G and a 3G perhaps... I'm using a 1G with a revision H bluetooth module and it works fine. Honest!

    I like the bong (in both senses L6ON) as it confirms to me that the phone has paired - a bit like the bleep when I lock the car with the remote. Without the bong I'd have to check that the phone had paired ok just as without the bleep I'd have to check the car was locked. Its a useful function for me. Or maybe that's just my OCD kicking in. I also have to wash my hands 176 times a day.

    I get the screech with my Sony Ericsson C905 which is Bluetooth 2.2. Can't be iPhone specific. Now I do NOT like that in any way. Only happens every now and again though like others have said.

    I have a C905 and a K800i and I don't get any sort of screeching at all. Never have!

    Iggu do you hear your ringtone through the speakers?

    I have the ringtone through the speskers, and my bong is nice and quiet.

    Does it not use the same volume as when making a call? So, try making a call and lowering the volume, then see if the bongs have been turned down too

    One thing to know is on my M600i when I use as backup it doesnt display the antenna icon/signal but if you use it in 2g mode it does, only when in auto 3g switching it doesnt showup, weird huh & I dont think it gives the bong on that either.

    Thinking about it - I'm not 100% certain I've had the screech with this C905 phone which I've only had a month or so. My previous Samsung was Bluetooth v1.0 and used to do it all the time - maybe this one doesn't do it after all ..... couldn't swear to it either way.

    Right I can't get the ringtone to work. Looked at my setting in profiles and in bluetooth and on the RNS-E but can't find anything there. Tried it in Car mode too.

    BUT I did try adjusting the volume during call to high and then low to see if it made a difference to the bongs volume and it had no affect. But it was a bit weird because when I first got in my car the bong was really loud, but then each time I connected and diisconnected after that it was quieter and always the same volume.

    Does anyone know why sometimes I get into my car and the mp3 plays straight away instead of taking ages to load??

    I get that too !
    Naively and probably totally incorrectly I've put this down to the cold. My iPod misbehaves when its been very cold so I'm assuming the MP3 is affected as well. Either that or its gremlins in the RNS-E.

    No to do with the cold as it's been doing it all summer too! Must be the gremlins then.

    So how can I sort this ringtone thing out Iggu?? :search:

    Hi guys,

    My SE C905 doesn't ring through the speakers either, well it does but an annoying classic "ring" and not the ringtone on the phone, that does play but from the handset itself...... So I get two types of rings :-S

    Never noticed any screetching noises as mentioned.

    But the BONG is a nightmare, when you get in its quite loud (but I can deal with this) but when a call disconnects halfway through or finishes its VERY loud. Also anyone have a problem with the volume of the person through the speakers?? I can adjust it by putting the phone call volume on max and the car call volume on max but it only goes up to a certain level and if someone is talking quietly when I'm driving along a motorway can hardly heard them at times..... Also having the car call volume maxed out means that the bong upon disconnection makes me jump out of my skin...lol

    I don't have any problems with the volume of calls. Apart from the fact that you never no what level it's set at and normally the ring of an incoming call it too loud. But I have FBMFSW so I can very quickly turn it down.

    The quality of the call itself and the volume is just great though.

    The only thing wrong for me is the ringtone not playing through the speakers.

    Not sure - your knowledge of wiring and electrics is much better than mine. Mine was a factory fit option rather than a retrofit so I can only assume this is standard. The man to ask is S8Craig - he will know for sure.
