    I bought a Belkin fm transmitter to use with my ipod touch. I'm having an issue where the volume randomly changes on the ipod when I use it with the Belkin. Any thoughts as to how I could fix it, or can I just assume it's a bad transmitter?

    I don't know how to fix it specifically, but if it's jailbroken, that might be the problem. It happened to me too, especially when low on memory, like after installing something in Cydia during a data reload-ification. It also happened randomly for no reason, so I would go into safe mode when I had my iPod in my pocket just in case. I would remove (or disable) some unneeded extensions.

    Does the volume change also happen when you have headphones plugged in? It could be that the individual music tracks were converted at different bitrates. The higher the bitrate, the clearer the sound. If you went from a song encoded at 192, then went to a song encoded at 320, there would be a definite sound quality (and volume) difference.

    Did it just sound louder or was there an actually indication that the volume increased. You might try running in safe mid if you are on a jail broken device or call the number on the box of the product and see if they know anything about it.

    Thanks for the responses. My ipod is not jailbroken. And there is visual indication that the volume increases/decreases, the volume slide bar moves.

    Any other thoughts? I already contacted Belkin about it but they just gave me some troubleshooting tips that did not help.

    Any other thoughts on what I may be able to do with the ipod to correct these random volume changes? For the record, I've tried three different transmitters and all have different problems.

    Try updating your iPod and then if that dont work DFU restore.

    Updated my ipod and did a restore, same problem. For what it's worth, I tried my wife's really old first gen ipod with the fm transmitter and didn't have a problem.

    Is there some setting unique to the touch that causes these random volume changes?

    I know what the problem is, its the headphones, or the headphones slot. Its been happening to me for a while now, I've concluded that its thinking your taking your headphones out and in, so its switching between the speaker volume and your headphone volume. Although since your headphones are still plugged in, it doesn't play out loud.
    I'm working on a solution.
