Lately I've been wondering if the volume level on the cellphone (while bluetooth streaming) actually makes any difference on battery consumption.
I mean is not like the cellphone speakers are being used, but still getting the cellphone volume up actually makes the car speakers sound louder so... what do you say?
I've search info on this question across the web to no avail (It may be a silly one anyway but still... enlighten me please
Can't imagine that it would, since the bluetooth service is running regardless of volume level, and battery usage is predicated on the time the service keeps your phone awake.
