I just got an Iphone and one of the first apps I got was Adaptune for the speed base volume control. What do you have your sliders set at for wakeboarding and wakesurfing.

Blair, I use mine on the road biking setting. I set the upper slider as high as it will go and then adjust the max volume on the stereo to be what I want it to be when we are at speed. Then for the lower levels I have it set to pretty much mute the music. Its kind of a both end of the extremes deal, but the Road Biking setting seems to be the best to wakeboard with.

Thanks man I used this moring and it worked great. It took me awhile to realized I had to set the low volume setting when the boat was stopped. Best .99 cents I spent in awhile.

Make sure your GPS location is on, Then I went to the road bike setting like flatetire said. Once Your moving and your looking at the profile screen make sure the slider under the speed is slid all the way up. Then turn your volume on your boat up to what you want while your moving, Then what I did is once you slow down to pick up a ride I used the volume button on the side you my phone to turn it down to the level I wanted while we where stopped. That set the low end for me and left the other arrow turned up for when your moving.

I hope that made since not I'm not the best writer.

Three years later, any updates from anyone on this? I use an old HTC Rezound just for controling the tunes in my boat. I found a free app called Smart Volume Lite that I've been playing around with in my truck, adjusting the settings to simulate boarding and surfing. It doesn't appear to save any settings after closing and re-opening the app. There is also a 2-3 second lag from when I reach the said speed and the actual adjustment. Not big deals, other than that it appears this will work pretty good on the water....for free! But I'd certainly pay a few bucks for a better app that would resolve these issues....

I also have an iphone 5 with a similar free app called Audio Cruise and it appears to have the same issues although I haven't played with it much. I'd prefer to use my Rezound but if there's an iphone app that is siginificantly better then I could switch it up...

unfortunately I think audiocruise is all that's available for the iphone now that adaptunes has bit the dust.

Does the audio cruise app work over the ipod cable or only over the headphone out port?

headphones or bluetooth only. There is no volume control through the dock connector.

What is an HSE?
Old    Jeff Hill (hillbilly)      Join Date: Aug 2002       02-27-2013, 9:15 AM Reply   
HSE was a volume controler. It tied into your tach and automaticaly lowered your volume when the engine went below a set rpm. Then went back up to a set volume when the set rpm was exceeded.
Some ppl said they were too expensive, I think those ppl never used one...lol
I love mine and it sucks HSE quit making them because I know a lot of folks still want them. Some ppl pull them off their old boats to put on the new boat.

And sorry Lou its gone......

I tried a few android volume control apps and they all had problems. They were either missing features or would not run reliably. I decided to write my own. It's still a work in progress, but it seems to work. I've only tested it on my galaxy s3, but I think I set it up so it will work on devices running older versions of android. It's pretty basic. You enter a speed for volume control to start at, a speed for it to end at, a min volume and a max volume then hit start. The app pulls the speed from the gps and linearly adjusts the volume from the min to the max. You can save your settings, and it will automatically load them when you restart. I've been meaning to put it in the google play store, but haven't had the time to create the icons for it. For now it's up in my dropbox folder.

You can get a volume controller at www.wakeblaster.com

This guys on the team talk forum and a number of the MC guys have great success with it.
