Stop nagging my dock!! "Listening to audio above te current volume level etc etc"

Stop nagging my dock!! "Listening to audio above te current volume level etc etc"

Any way to disable the annoying notification and auto-reduction of music volume?  It seems to happen at random times, and I can't find the option to turn it off.

Since the phone doesn't have a decent dock I'm using the an old iPod dock of mine (Sony ironically) and the headphones port.  I'm getting fed up of having to go over to the phone and changing the volume back to full volume for the dock to play out properly. 

Doesn't seem to happen over bluetooth with my car - but I've dismissed the message countless times now when using the headphone port.  I know it's a EU thing to warn people about loud music, but to actively turn the volume down seems extreme - and to keep doing it is just annoying.

Re: Stop nagging my dock!! "Listening to audio above te current volume level etc etc"

Dear Johan, please give us some furter clarification.


Please understand this warning is not just annoying but sometimes plain dangerous.

I am listening to the music on my phone while driving only, with the phone connected either direclty to aux or via bluetooth, and either way I keep getting this warning along with a sudden volume drop. In order to clear the message and restore the volume I am forced to reach and operate my phone, which is a) dangerous and b) illegal. The volume level in the phone is irrelevant as I'm controlling it with the car stereo volume knob only.

There are some rumours floating on the net about this warning nature, one is that it is a legal obligation for manufacturers to implement this feature (allegedly in EU).

If this is a case - could you please a) give a reference to this legislation and b) clarify if this is indeed a customisation/location/language related.

Thanks,

Kostya

"It's not possible to to deactivate this caution message."

Then sir you should probably go and work for a church or a communist government or some other out dated establishment. In the tech industry everything is possible if you want it to be. And please take to account what tgv pointed out below:
