Simply turn the radio volume switch up as I found out myself, as said whilst the sat nab is talking. You have to be quick.

Re: Stop/start system failure

When you find the problem let me know so I can initiate it. As I hate this feature.

Re: Sat Nav

Yep. Tried it today. You simply turn the volume up when its speaking. It works independently from the radio.
