HD Radio Troubleshooting
Digital Audio Delay
Wait for the signal to the process. This can take several seconds. Volume Change, Audio Skip, Echo, Digital.
Station signal strength may be weak, the station is out of range, or the station may be out of alignment. Verify proper reception on another station.
If the HD Radio signal weakens while listening to HD1, the radio will automatically switch to the analog version of the radio station.
If the HD Radio signal loses reception while listening to stations HD2 to HD8, the radio mutes until the signal can be recovered or until the station is changed. HD Radio can be disabled if driving in a weak signal area. Touch HD Radio On/Off to toggle HD Radio reception on and off.

RDS relies on receiving specific RDS information from radio stations and only works when the information is available. It is possible that a radio station could broadcast information that causes the radio to work improperly. In addition, RDS features are region and country of sale specific. This means specific RDS content may not be available in your listening area or in the country you operate the vehicle. To turn RDS features on or off, select
Settings > Apps> Audio> RDS> Select
ON or OFF.

Unplug electronic devices from the accessory power outlets if there is interference or static in the radio.
FM signals only reach about 16 to 65 km (10 to 40 mi). Although the radio has a built-in electronic circuit that automatically works to reduce interference, some static can occur, especially around tall buildings or hills, causing the sound to fade in and out.
The range for most AM stations is greater than for FM, especially at night. The longer range can cause station frequencies to interfere with each other. Static can also
occur when things like storms and power lines interfere with radio reception. When this happens, try reducing the treble on the radio.
Sirius XM Satellite Radio Service
If equipped, Sirius XM Satellite Radio Service provides digital radio reception. Tall buildings or hills can interfere with satellite radio signals, causing the sound to fade in and out. In addition, traveling or standing under heavy foliage, bridges, garages, or tunnels may cause loss of the Sirius XM signal for a period of time. Some cellular services may interfere with SXM reception causing loss of signal.
Mobile Device Usage
Mobile device usage, such as making or receiving calls, charging, or just having the mobile device on may cause static interference in the radio. Unplug the mobile
device or turn it off if this happens.
The multi-band roof antenna may be used for radio, navigation, and other communication systems, depending on the equipped options. To ensure clear reception,
keep the antenna clear of obstructions, such as snow and ice. If the vehicle has a sunroof, and it is open, or a roof loaded with cargo, reception may be affected.
Avoiding Untrusted Media Devices When using media devices such as USB and mobile devices, consider the source. Untrusted media devices could contain files
that affect system operation or performance and should be avoided.
