They are real. The stock systems have speed-sensitive volume control built in. I have spoken to U-Connect as well as the dealership. There is no known way of disabling this feature. I would love to be proven wrong.

As it stands, the only way to disable this feature is to replace the stock head unit with an aftermarket head unit.

I don't know if this was merely an oversight on Chrysler's part, but the fact that the "consumer" (as U-Connect referred to me as) is locked out of adjusting this feature is completely absurd.

I was so close to getting a second Cherokee for my wife next month. For this reason, I will be getting something else.

I was wondering if maybe they built in the feature but locked out any adjustment. It seems strange that they would do that but maybe they turned the gain down so much they thought no one would notice. I still find it odd that it isn't mentioned anywhere that I can find.

Re: Speed-Sensitive Volume/Audio Quality

Chrysler/Jeep media systems do NOT have speed-sensitive volume controls of any kind. Ford and GM do. This topic has been discussed many times on the Challenger, Jeep and 300 forums (all share the same 130, 430 and 730 systems). You have been given incorrect information by your dealer and "U-connect". Having (3) other vehicles (Mustang, Ford SUV and Saturn) with speed-sensitive volume, I can tell that my 2012 GC with the 430N does not have the feature (and does not need it in my opinion as mentioned previously).

Re: Speed-Sensitive Volume/Audio Quality

+1. This feature is definitely not in the 730N. I was a little disappointed at first because even my 11 year old Jimmy had it. I had found it to be very useful for hwy driving. I can't imagine why it is not included on the GC. As quiet as this vehicle is, I still find myself turning the volume up or down when getting on and off interstate hwys.

Of course it doesn't need the feature, as the car is very quiet, even upon acceleration. Unfortunately, my 430N has the feature. Don't know why yours does not. Perhaps they manufactured some with, some without.
