Mute button just mutes the "radio", at least for me.
To adjust the Android auto volume you have to wait for it to be reading directions or responding to your voice commands, then adjust up and down, it won't affect the radio volume. Chrysler has always done this with their nav units, it's annoying but it is what it is.
