In a random chat on one of our favorite channels, we were talking about PD0KHN, Martin’s newest addition to his Radio Park: an Inrico T320. We were discussing that adjusting the sound is not a subtile matter, it goes with button clicks and it’s lowest volume is sometimes just a little bit too loud. Same goes for the TM-7 (plus)… we all experienced the same issue. We got interrupted by Jeerke77 who told us that if you disable the Sound Enhancement in Android Sound Settings, the volume is far more softer and subtile in its lower volumes.
Quite handy (certainly for devices where volume button work when the screen is off) Make the media volume the default volume using Button Mapper. Always adjusting the right volume when using Zello when this setting is enabled.
The Inrico TM-7 plus has a lot of advantages and for me it’s probably one of the best mobile devices out there for the moment. But is has one big issue and that is the total useless volume knob. If you dial the knob to change the volume, it just starts a life on its own. The volume flies to on end of the spectrum to the other… really awful and even dangerous in the car.
Luckily there is a work around for it.
The first solution is just uninstall Button Mapper, because this is causing the issue.
The second solution is by configuring the navigation buttons (Up & Down) as volume buttons via Button Mapper. (Oh the irony!)
In Button Mapper, go to option “+ add more buttons”
Press the “up key” on the right next to your display and confirm that you want to add it.
Then select customise.
The 3 button actions become active (single, double & long press)
Assign to all 3 buttons actions the same Action: “Volume +”
Do the same for for the “Down Key” with the Action: “Volume –“
and you’re good to go…
Now you can adjust the volume settings with the up and down key.
