The factory setting for HD radio is off. However, when driving through areas with weak HD signals (fringe areas), you may experience that the radio repeatedly switches between analogue/ digital and digital/analogue reception. If this happens, it may be desirable to switch HD off. To do so:

1. Be sure the audio system is switched on and in one of the AM or FM modes.

2. Press OK/MENU in the center console control panel.

3. Turn TUNE and move the marker to HD Radio.

4. Press OK/MENU to turn HD off (the X will disappear from the box on the display screen).

This will disable the radio's capability to receive digital broadcasts but it will continue to function as a conventional (analogue) AM/FM receiver. Please note that when HD is switched off, it will not be possible to tune to sub-channels (see the following section for a more detailed explanation of sub-channels).

Repeat steps 2-4 above to reactivate HD (an X will appear in the box on the display screen).

Please note that this will only switch HD on or off for the selected waveband (AM, FM1, etc.).
