Hi, in my S3 I have the Nav plus, I've noticed that when I break the volume goes down lol, and back up when accelerating, I remember this happening in my mk4 golf with the Audi unit fitted, can anyone explain this and why it's happening...?

It should be in Sound Setting, adjust "Dynamic Sound" to minimum, Bose system it's called "AudioPilot" and with the B&O it's called "Volume Balancing"
Not sure about the setting with your year but you should be able to turn it off. Its to compensate for road noise as you drive faster.

Thank you for your reply, on my volume settings I can not find anything remotely close to that.
Am I looking in the wrong place, my year is 2011 using Nav plus

Yeah not sure it may be something locked behind the software so you have to use vcds or OBDeleven to disable it. Maybe someone else will chime in.
