Default Volume Control Hang-Up?

I had a strange bit of business with the volume this weekend as well.
I had plugged into my car dock after leaving a restaurant Friday night (I had the Cashew Scallops and a Spring Roll) and am not positive but may have bumped the volume control while sliding my Stiletto into the dock. The volume bar display stayed on the screen showing full volume, but the radio was very quiet. I tried to turn it off and restart without removing it from the dock, but when it powered up again, the volume display was still showing, again at full with very low output. I actually had to disconnect and remove the battery to get it to work properly again.

I'm still not sure if I bumped the volume or not, but wondered if anybody else has had anything similar happen?

Every time I put the Stiletto in my car dock the volume on the unit is at full blast. I, usually, make sure that the volume on my HU is lower when I shut my car off.

I usually leave the volume full tilt. Since I havnen't picked up a case yet I haven't been listening through phones very often at all. It's been a few weeks since I've gotten my docks & I hadn't seen this before.

Default Problem with volume in car dock

I have a problem such that the Stiletto 100 volume will not go past approx 75% when the device is in the car dock. It will go to 100% in undocked mode no problem but whenever I put it in the casr dock it drops down to 75% and will not go any higher.
Any ideas?
Thanks

There is a System Volume control. Go to Settings --> Audio and Display --> System Volume and see what it's set for. I think the default setting is 75%.

Default Thanks Larry but ..................

Thanks Larry but that was the first thing I did. That setting is now at 100% but still I cannot get the on-radio volume past approx 75% when in the dock.
So unfortunately your suggestion did not help.

I'm having the opposite problem...I can't get my volume to go down. I have the setting at 10% and it is still blasting in my ears! I just got it for Christmas and am using the home dock, which isn't working either.

I've noticed the 75% thing too. I'm used to the S50 and how it can do 100% so if anyone knows how to make the stiletto go to 100% please let us know.

Well at least now I know that I am not the only one with this problem.
Any solutions out there?
Is it a software bug?
I have the latest firmware but is there an OS update?

The System Volume control mentioned above is only for system sounds, such as the sounds made when you scroll through the channels. It has nothing to do with the main audio volume.

I had my unit lock up twice today in the car dock. I also noticed that at times it seems to respond very slowly to channel changes, like 3 to 5 seconds after hitting the select button.
