Hi @Joeythekid! Thanks for posting. 

Can you tell me a little bit more about your phone and GMC?

  1. What is the model of your GMC?
  2. Are you using the stock stereo or aftermarket? If you have an aftermarket stereo, what is the make and model of that device?
  3. What is the make and model of your phone? Also, can you tell me the Pandora app version (let me know if you need help finding that)?
  4. Is your vehicle equipped with Android Auto or Apple CarPlay?
  5. Have you experienced this volume issue only when in the car, or also when listening on your phone outside the car?
  6. Have you tried in troubleshooting before reaching out? If yes, which steps have you tried?

Let me know!

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

6) no

 

Thank you

Thanks @Joeythekid

When you connect to your car are the controls for Pandora moved to your car's head unit or do you continue to control Pandora through your phone?

Do you have the option to connect to your vehicle with a USB?

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!
