    I know what u mean I went from a Clio 3 years old to a audi the same age. Even the Clio had Bluetooth as standard where as my audi doesn't lol.
    Wouldn't change it for the world tho, I love the A3 ;)

    Agreed. Lovely car, apart from the stereo issue (and the road noise!).

    This thread is about Bose - assume you don't have Bose - in any case the thread's about the standard OEM fit.
    You might like to start a sep thread for your issue - to answer (briefly), if your car is non-Bose, the volume related speed signal is supplied via Canbus - a three wire network that also delivers the ignition on/off, illumination etc signals -maybe you have a canbus interface box somewhere, or maybe the Pioneer can interpret Canbus.

    Finally fixed the volume issue on my RNS-E - turned AudioPilot off with VCDS!

    Go into radio/satnav and goto adaption

    I used the drop-down menum on mine but I think it's channel 8 - gala, change from 255 (bose autopilot) to 0 (gala), then the menu comes up on the rns-e audio controls and you can set the level of volume adjustment between 0 (none) to 5 (maximum)

    I didn't think it was that easy for some reason ...
    Cheers for posting it up :)
    Funny thing is mine has not had a problem for ages and has settled down.
    Starting to think the heat in the summer played a part in it ...
    Iv still got a brand new Bose mic i was going to change lol :)

    Go into the concert menu and adjust the GALA settings - these are speed related and not background noise therefore more consistent. The RNSE AudioPilot issue is completely different - the volume will go up and down on its own regardless of speed (although only noticeable at low speeds and low volume levels tbh).

    Seems to have resolved it on my car (MK2 RNSE with BOSE)

    Hmm, thought I'd update my post as all was OK for 2 weeks but then it went back to how it was before!

    Looks like the only fix is to do the wiring retrofit on the amp! Damn!
