Example of an HD Radio station with sub-channels

In many cases, a main HD Radio station (FM wavebands only) will also have sub-channels offering additional types of programming or music.

In such cases, the “-” symbol will be displayed to the left of the frequency number and a number will be displayed to the right of the frequency number indicating that the currently tuned frequency has at least one sub-channel. The "2" in the illustration indicates that you are currently listening to the first sub-channel on frequency 93.9.

Selecting sub-channels

To listen to a station's sub-channel(s), press and hold the right arrow key on the center console or on the steering wheel keypad for approximately 1 second. To go back to the main channel, press and hold the left arrow key on the center console or on the steering wheel keypad for approximately 1 second. To go to subchannel 2 (if available), press and hold the right arrow key on the center console or on the steering wheel keypad for approximately 1 second.

If you are currently tuned to a frequency's main channel, pressing and holding the left arrow key for approximately 1 second will tune to the next lower radio frequency.

NOTE NOTE

  • When the radio has gone into HD mode, it may take several seconds before the ">" symbol (if the current frequency has any sub-channels) is displayed to the left of the frequency. Pressing and holding the arrow keys for approximately 1 second before the main-/sub-channel icon is displayed will cause the radio to tune to the next available radio station, not to the current station's sub-channels.
  • When you are no longer in broadcasting range of the currently tuned sub-channel, No reception will be displayed. The radio will then be muted and it will be necessary to tune to or search for a new radio station.

Sub-channels can also be stored as presets, see page 214 for information on storing stations.

If you press a sub-channel's preset button, it may take up to 6 seconds before the channel becomes audible. If you press this button while you are out of digital range of the transmitter, No HD reception will be displayed.
