The easiest way to change the volume is to operate the rotary switch at main screen. A clockwise rotation will increase volume and an anti-clockwise rotation will decrease volume. POLARIS can detect the speed of rotation and apply corresponding acceleration. At low speed, a single step of rotation means one step of volume change, the higher speed you rotate, the more steps of volume it will change.
