Note: When I say a "bar" below I mean one of the line segments that are made up with about 3 or 4 steps each.
I find it does not Auto lower the volume enough at "normal" volumes. Say like around 3 or 4 full "bars".
I think this partly what was making me feel it's way to chatty compared to 8500.
So I said screw it, I'm turning the volume way down. I'll learn to subconsciously hear it.
So I turn it down to 2 full bars and automute doesn't work at all. It stays at the same level forever.
So then I try 1 full bar. Now when it automutes it completely shuts the volume off.
I also often bump the volume up or down when doing mutes or lock outs.
It would be so nice to have a seperate automute volume.
I sure wish Escort would get their act together and fix rampup, volume issues and USB support.
