Hi @Joeythekid! Thanks for posting.
Can you tell me a little bit more about your phone and GMC?
Let me know!
Use your mobile device only when conditions allow and as permitted by applicable law.
Hello, thank you for getting back to me. Here are the answers to your questions:
1) 2016 Canyon
2) stock stereo
3) Samsung Galaxy S8 - Android, Pandora App Version 2103.1
4) no sure about Android Auto
5) No issue outside the car - the phone speakers and/or earbud volume and sound is fine
thanks again - yes, i can connect/ control via the truck's dash display - i do have a usb connection......since our last communication i did try the usb connection and it appears that if i both increase the volume on the phone (via sound up-down buttons) AND then use the car radio controls I do get increased sound volume but the quality still seems "off" (much less depth/clarity/"surround-feeling" vs the radio itself - i can live with it certainly but just figured i would reach out and ask others - thanks again for your help!
My truck has an option for speed assist, where when the truck goes faster and gets inevitably louder, the music Co-insides with that increase to keep your volume at the same level prior to the noise increase. Also if you click profile on the phone(bottom right) then click on i belive it says advanced, then on sound quality or something similar , there is an option to turn on better quality audio, good may skip your song more often but sound still be better, that paired with what you already did, turned up phone volume, sound give you better quality. Also your phone settings may be blocked on the max volume of a blue tooth device, check that and allow max, usually gives you enough to drown out the truck engine and wind noises, hope that helps.
