It’s easy to select radio stations and CD tracks by using voice commands or pressing the SYNC® 3 touchscreen icons.27

Your favorite stations are just a touch away with presets. You can create two banks of presets for AM radio and three banks of presets for FM and HD radio. Once you set your Memory Presets, a list of your saved stations will appear above the Feature bar at the bottom of the touchscreen for quick access.

See how to control your radio—AM/FM/HD and SiriusXM® Radio—with voice commands, in this video.

A word about HD Radio

Your system may be equipped with HD Radio, a special receiver that allows you to hear digital broadcasts (where available) with crystal-clear audio and no static or distortion.

While HD Radio is on, and you tune to an FM station that is broadcasting HD Radio technology, the HD logo will be gray when acquiring a digital station and will then change to orange once digital audio is playing.48

If an HD station is available, you can set the station as a preset.

Note: If your vehicle is outside a station’s reception area, that station cannot be accessed even if it has been saved as a preset.

How to set Memory Presets

To set Memory Presets for AM, FM, HD and SiriusXM® Satellite Radio, first press the Audio icon in the Feature bar at the bottom of your touchscreen, and then press Sources.34

  • Choose your Source by pressing AM, FM or Sirius.

  • Press Direct Tune.

  • Enter the desired station or channel, and press Enter.

  • Press a Preset Bank to add the station, and then press and hold one of the Memory Preset buttons to save it. The audio will mute briefly, and the sound will return once the station is saved.

Note: If your vehicle is outside a station’s reception area, that station cannot be accessed even if it has been saved as a preset. 

How to control your CD player

To choose the CD player as an audio source, press the Audio icon in the Feature bar at the bottom of your touchscreen, and then press Sources. Next, press the CD icon.

Once you’ve selected CD, the system will return to the main audio screen, and the current audio information will appear on the touchscreen.

From the main CD screen, you can control CD playing with:

  • Advance, Reverse, Pause, Play or Repeat playing

  • Scan for a track

  • Shuffle to play tracks in random order

  • Browse to select a particular track displayed on the touchscreen
