Default Volume for HTC Hero speaker phone

I crank this all the way up , but can barely hear anyone on this phone while driving. I guess I should activate the bluetooth, but the speakerphone volume needs to go louder on this HTC Hero. Way to weak. Crank it up HTC. Thanks.

I doubt if HTC will post an update to a phone that has been out since October 2009.

gmo709htc - ACTUALLY...the hero has one of the better speaker phones out there.
A few of the music apps have an internal Volume and Graphic Equalizer that can up the volume quote a bit..... But yeah...bluetooth is your best options.

Bluetooth works but for best results it's the headphone jack to AUX input on your car stereo. If you ride is not so equipped a cassette adapter work well too

I have always been very impressed with the volume level of the speaker in the Sprint HTC Hero. That is just my opinion but I truly believe it.

I have found that AudioManager on the Android Market works quite well at controlling the volume on various things and it can be found here: https://market.android.com/details?id=com.smartandroidapps.audiowidget&featur e=more_from_developer .

As the other posters have mentioned, the Hero is one of the best for speaker and volume, you may simply have a defective speaker, stop by a Sprint store and have then look at it if none of the apps there others are suggesting work.
