    Uconnect 6.5 w/Beats audio

    Has anyone got an L with the uconnect 6.5 with beats that has speed adjusted volume and loudness contour on the audio settings menu? Mine only has balance/fader and equalizer. The Fiat website and the printed uconnect manual say those settings should be there. Everything else: navigation SXM etc. works fine.

    This came up in the middle of another thread a few weeks ago and we all thought it was stupid that the top of the line radio does not have features that even the base regular 500 Pop has in terms of speed controlled volume. I had some issues with mine and Bluetooth. I called Fiat and they confirmed that this feature was left or taken out of the beats enabled units. The regular 6.5, which is what our manual is written for as beats does not change the other operations, does have the options. Stupid, yes I know. It goes along with the same logic that in the 500L Lounge model (I have a Lounge) the 110 volt outlet is not an option. The logic used in the packaging of auto features makes you sometimes.

    Hint don't put your phone in the cup holder while using bluetooth. There is something down there that interferes with the connection and drops the bluetooth every few minutes.

    That was me. In the mean time I checked an L with 6.5 Uconnect without Beats audio on the dealers lot and it did not have the settings either. They had one unit with the smaller screen which had the settings. The dealer has some Trekkings in transit. I will check those and post an update.

    I have a Trekking with BEATS and I have the same settings you have. No loudness contour.

    Ditto on the missing settings

    Hey, add my 500L Easy with the 6.5 Uconnect to the list of vehicles that do not have the settings listed in the manual. It is really annoying to me that the Radio pops on when you turn on your vehicle. I have a variety of people riding with me and I don't always appreciate them getting a glimpse of my preference in music. So I feel the loss of that missing feature on my uconnect settings. So far, I can't figure out how to turn the radio off without turning off the navigation screen so I just have to mute the radio which seems weird. So every time I turn on the navigation the radio pops on and has to be manually muted. I wish it was separate.

    If you check the Fiat website you will see that these settings are listed as features on the Uconnect 6.5 system. I think we should expect a software update that will add these features. It has something to do with omissions in the initial delivery program loaded when the vehicles are taken out of the shipping mode. This is why I keep checking new L's that come in to see if they have those features. I'm retired so I have time to do that. I will update you all if I learn anything.

    I assume that this was not your plan when you retired...

    No, but being a left brained person, I rather enjoy the investigation and hopefully help all of us in the process.

    My trekking does not have beats. It also does not have speed adjusted volume. It is also missing other soft button features that are listed in the uconnect manual.
