2010 MB E-550
Alar Chirp

Howdy Folks!!...;
Just another question about my 2010 E550. I notice that when I lock or unlock my doors with my Key Fob..... I hear a real wimpy 3 chirps to lock, 1 chirp to unlock. I've gone all through my "Menus" and find no was to raise the volume. I tried the "Command Manu" and there are so many different folders in the menus that say nothing as to what they contain. I'm not much for pressing buttons I know nothing about.... nor do I have proper instructions as to proper use of these folders. Is the volume controllable?, or do I have to by another unit. And since I'm pestering everyone, is there a control to adjust the audio on the radio commensurate to the speed your going?
Thank you for any replies
Drive On!!...
Fred

No way to control the volume of the chirp. Just on/off option.

and i wanna also say NO to the 2nd question.

Mercedes has had the speed sensitive volume control for many years across all of their models, so you should have it unless the dealer disabled it.

My 2001 MB has this feature and works a charm to this day. On my 2016 it's even more seamless in operation.

It's another of those features standard on a Mercedes for so long, it's hardly promoted anymore. Especially since so many other brands have adopted similar systems.

On my Honda, the speed sensitive volume boost has adjustments (low, medium, high). On this car, it is just on - I don't believe you can adjust the sensitivity.

Yep, my wife's Hyundai Sonata has volume boost adjustments, too. That's good, and a flattering copy of the adjustable volume settings on my 17 year-old Mercedes. Only problem is I'm still looking for the Houdini button that turns her Sonata into a Mercedes.
