I thought it did, though I wasn't certain. It's been a year now since I've used that system. Does it mute or just reduce the volume of the stereo if it's playing? If it mutes it, then I'd imagine you'll have no problems.

They might be confusing it with the L2 phase 2 navigation system. This does appear to be much more tightly integrated with the stereo, and I don't think it leaves much scope for upgrading the sound system.

Then again, it'll play Van Halen's "Jump" loudly enough to cause temporary hearing loss without sounding too distorted. I can live with it
