    So, Ive noticed some weirdness with stock media player volume. For some reason when I initially plug my auxiliary 3.5mm jack into my car stereo, volume is rather quiet. If I unplug and hit play again I typically get more volume. What am I missing here?

    Try poweramp and use the equalizer in it, preferably phone speaker setting, with PreAmp to max. Or get a different chord.

    That is weird behavior, but then I don't use an "AUX" in, I use BT.

    FWIW, not all 3.5mm to 3.5mm audio cables lack attenuation. Also, your radio could be doing some compensation / calibration to the "aux in" so as to not distort. Possibly each time you insert the cord it refines it's attenuation. Remember, an earphone out is not an Aux-level signal.

    Remember, also your volume Up/Down keys are going to affect the level presented to the radio.

    As for options: I like MixZing Basic and it's equalizer.

    BTW, if you want to make your radio "BT" capable, you could get one of those $18 A2DP adapters:

    i posted a similar topic, my sound is reduced significantly whenever I receive a notification while listening to music on my triumph. An annoying solution that works for me is to pause the music and wait about 3-5 seconds and play it again. Then the sound goes back to full volume, maybe this will work for you.

    Mine was working that way, If I pulled the cable and then re plugged. Now it's just crappy volume all the time...this sucks.
