Hi everyone. I test drove two different premium models and both had HD radio. One had a button to switch the HD secondary channels. The one I bought has HD but no button to switch to the other channels. Am I missing something? Are there two different HD radio interfaces? They looked the same.
TIA

If the radio antenna picks up a 2nd signal for that secondary HD channel, then the button will show up on the screen.... a 1 and a 2. Sometimes there are 3. You just touch that number. I've noticed 2nd signals are not as strong as 1st signals, so sometimes radio might not pick them up, or they take longer to pick up and appear.

Thanks. I switched to another HD station and the buttons appeared. Apparently the Ascent's HD radio isn't quite as reception friendly as my GTI which recognized more HD stations.
