    Default 2020 F3-S Special Volume Rocker

    Can anyone with a 2020 F3-S Special (with BRP Connect Dash) confirm if their volume rocker functions?
    I have sound going to my Cardo Pactalk headset in my helmet. Its a great set up.
    I am able to control volume with the joystick just fine, but I don't think the dedicated volume rocker has ever done anything for me. It is a bit maddening, I have found that the only way to edit volume is to exit BRP connect and use the joystick, when there is a volume switch right there in front of me! It also took me a long time to figure out that the notification volume- for Genius Maps turn by turn- cannot be changed while in Genius Maps! You have to exit BRP Connect in order to edit that volume in the brief window where you are receiving notifications. I would like to know if my volume rocker is broken, or if it (by design) just doesn't do anything.

    It looks like the F3-S non special doesn't have the volume rocker at all. Has anyone utilized this space for anything? Controls for heated grips would be a great use of the space.

    It doesn't do anything - by design.

    Thanks for the help. Thats odd that they bothered to add the button without connecting it to anything.

    I don't think it was so much 'add the button' as it was 'fail to remove the button!!' Don'tcha know there's time & effort & therefore cost involved in popping out that button & replacing it with a blanking plate!

    That said, I reckon it might be worth having a look underneath that rocker button - sure, your model might not have all the features the other models have, but if BRP follows their established form, there's a good chance the wiring loom & plugs etc to connect it up are all there too - the question is, will connecting them allow you to do anything?!

    On just about every other Spyder/Ryker model, those 'not used' buttons &/or blanks still have all the connectors & loom, plugs etc in place underneath; and in some cases (F3 cruise control for example) it's just a matter of getting/installing the correct switch/control unit to do a DIY upgrade on your machine!

    Might be worth a shot??
