Default Factory Radio Mute

I have been reading the forum about muting my 2016 Chrysler 300 factory R4 8.4 Nav/radio. I also visited my installer who just said canít be done. My iPhone, Garmin Alexa mute the radio. The ci Max is an expensive system but seems to lack some Blue Tooth compatibility with factory radios. Escort sells a mute cable but the installers said no go. One other thing the installer did not give me a usb cable for updates. He said just bring the car in and we will do the updates. He installed the unit under the factory radio. My big question is why canít I mute the radio on alerts as I can hear the alerts.

MAX Ci's bluetooth connects to your iPhone, not your car stereo. If you are running the Escort Live app on your iPhone, then alerts coming from the app (including detector-based alerts) should come through your bluetooth connected stereo. You may need to turn the volume up on your iPhone while Escort Live is showing on the screen.

Thank you for the reply.

I am receiving alerts and voice now over media only car speakers. I had to disable the live app music. Escort still does not mute the radio Stations which so use for news.
