I have the speed sensitive volume turned on to the highest level and I do not believe it is doing a thing. I have the same feature on my RAM and I do notice that it adjusts the volume. With the Jeep I need to turn up the volume when I get to highway speeds. This is not my first Jeep and I know they are louder than a RAM at highway speeds but I really think if it were working properly that I would not need to adjust.

Anyone else notice this?

For reference I have the 8.4 radio.

I have it on too and it's useless. It's not just you.

I have the 7.0" and keep it on medium (highest level was too extreme). I do not have the upgraded audio however... maybe it's a perk for us poor souls who didn't upgrade. ;)

It does not seen to work on mine. It works on my convertible Covette, so I know what to expect. But I still love my JL.

Mine definitely works, but it doesn't seem to be a linear change. It's most notable when slowing down; as soon as I come to a complete stop, the volume drops pretty dramatically. I wish it was a little more subtle. One of my college buddies had a BMW that you could set the volume while at a dead stop, and you'd have that same relative volume no matter what speed you were going, and it was surprisingly nice.

I have upgraded audio with the 7" screen. The highest setting (3?) seems to be just about right for me.

7" Rubicon set to max (+3) keep my radio around 12 for volume. I can notice it jump up when I got 10 mph going slow in traffic very consistently and will drop down when I go below 5 mph. Was sitting in slow moving traffic today leaving work and was playing with it by adjusting my speed. Can really notice it on certain songs. I wish it was a more gradual adjustment as it can be jarring in slow traffic.

Do you have the 8.4? I am noticing a trend. Should maybe get @JeepCares involved. sounds like there is a bug in the radio.

I have the 8.4" and I was trying to figure out why it wasn't doing anything. So I turned it off.
