    Does anyone know if you can alter the settings on the Zulu.2 headset so whe you are listening to music over Bluetooth it does not auto mute whenever the radio or intercom activates?

    I'd prefer to always hear the music at a background volume and just set the radio and intercom volume at a "foreground" level.

    It turns way down when the mic is active.

    Thanks, Andrew. Checking the manual, that appears to be solution. I'll verify next flight.

    Your welcome.

    If you ever route the music via a aux port on your panel the following will be helpful.

    On some of our aircraft I also have to press the ICS toggle, on the audio panel, to keep the audio from muting. It will still mute during a TX, but doesn't mute during RX or intercom audio.

    Currently, the Skylane has the KMA24 audio panel, so no AUX port I am aware of.

    Not muting during IC or RX is what I was seeking.

    Any plans to do a long XC this direction?

    IIRC the KMA-24 doesn't have the plug in the back for installing an aux. that's my recollection from the install manual I was reading as we have the same audio panel and I wanted to add music. I recommend you check for yourself, as that was about 2yrs ago when I looked into it.
