Muting the radio- ACC Switch

On my 07 Road Glide I had a mute switch next to my ACC switch. It came in handy when I'd stop to talk while at waiting on a traffic light. My 2013 doesn't have a Mute switch. Is there a way to use the ACC to mute my radio?

If you hold down the volume control on your bars it will skip to mute the radio.

yeah, that's the dumbest thing i've ever heard. why have a 'mute' when you're basically turning the radio down to zero? then you've got to turn it back up again, may or may not be where you had it.

i noticed this when i would turn my radio down to come through the security checkpoint on post where i work. thought then, and still do, that a 'one touch' mute would have been a much better option.

I understand the concept of reality, but find it too confining for a way of life.

I think, I could be wrong though, that the responder was being a smartass.
Ya see, I'm a smartass myself and we can spot each other miles away!
Mute button! That's funny!

maybe he was, but if you turn the radio down all the way, in the display it shows 'mute'.....

thats what i was referring to.

I too miss the older radio allowing a quick poke of the button = mute, and resume at same volume.

sorry, nothing went 'over my head'... i was just commenting on something i thought was ridiculous.



go ahead, talk trash if you want, but if you turn your volume down all the way, the display reads mute. have you ever tried it? did you notice that? kinda dumb isn't it?

and if a one touch button mute is so lazy, why do almost all other manufacturers have it? oh wait, never mind, its because they're promoting laziness in our society.....

and thanks rageglide for agreeing

Talk trash??? Your 1st comment "that's the dumbest thing i've ever heard" directed towards me was uncalled for. Did you think a comment like that would go unanswered?

Have a Good Night and Good Luck to you...

i'm afraid you totally misunderstood. what i was referring to as the dumbest thing, was the fact that you had to turn the radio down all the way and it showed mute in the display. it was not directed at you at all.... sorry you took it that way.
