Does the Uconnect software let you set a default volume when starting up the truck? I continuously forget to turn down my radio when I park and when I start the truck up again I get blasted by the radio. I know my wife's car has a default setting that lowers the volume to a specific level when the car is turned off and on.

quick google search didn't come up with anything nor did checking myself.

Nope. It's wherever you leave it. I usually turn it down to around 4-6 when I get out or unplug my phone since different sources can be dramatically different volumes at the same setting (ie- streaming something from my phone is much quieter at '10' than FM radio is)

That's what's happening to me, I usually listen to some podcasts while driving and its ok level at 15 but radio at 15 is a damn concert.

Not that I've found. I've made a habit of turning the volume to zero and shutting off the radio completely before I shut off the truck. Usually as I come up my street, just after I shut off the AC. And the fan.

me kind of the same, i always turn the volume all the way down right before i turn the truck off, been doing it for long time.

while I’m fairly new to my truck, and the Uconnect system, I’m quickly discovering a lot of shortfalls with it.

The wife’s car has that feature.

It’s nice to start the day with the volume preset to what is “normal” for a car at idle as you pull out of the garage.

Then after you merge with the rest of the road warriors at 07:00 you can ramp up the intensity to match what you are facing for the day.
