Default Radio volume connected to speed?

Is the volume of the standard stereo somehow relevant to the speed of the car? In mine when you hit 50 the volume definitely rises slightly...when you drop back to 40 it drops....
Not worried about it but it's an interesting feature I can find no record of in the manual.
Think mine is the rc3 basic unit, no cd changer, with mono LCD

Yes, I think its called Auto volume control in the audio settings (bass, treble, loudness, balance and so on).

Thats pretty common functionality on modern cars, its used to offset the engine noise by increasing the music volume.

Heres a nice explanation:

As Gibbo says, you'll find the feature under the settings and be able to activate/de-activate from there (press the little music note symbol to get to all the settings).

Personally, I don't have mine activated - its one of those little things that, in my opinion, don't work all that well and tend to annoy me

Not had any issues with it, just wondered if it was a feature or a problem!
