    Using external devices plugged into my 340 input for music on flights, but the volume is crazy low. I don't see an option for turning it up in the manual for the 340. Anybody have a solution to this? Volume is at max on the output device and still the music is barely heard. I also plug an Ipad into the input for altitude and other info, but I can't hear that come across at all.

    Have you checked your ICS muting? Is it the same result from Music1 and Music2?

    It mutes like it should when traffic comes in, but the low music volume comes back. I just have the music one input on the panel.

    I think that's adjusted in the back of the unit somehow.

    Page 20 of the installation manual provides the instructions.

    If you have an early model 340 this is a known issue. Not sure how much Garmin charges to install the audio gain mod

    I have a booster app on my phone I'm going to try next time, but if that doesn't work I'll have to give this a try. Thanks!
