Volvo XC90: Audio, media and internet / Activating and deactivating the HD Radio™

HD Radio is deactivated when the car leaves the factory.

When listening to an HD Radio station and driving through areas with weak HD signals (fringe areas), you may experience that the radio repeatedly switches between analog/digital and digital/analog reception. If this happens, it may be desirable to switch HD off.

Carry out the following to activate or deactivate HD Radio:

  1. Drag down the top view and tap on Settings.
  2. Press Media and FM Radio.
  3. Press HD Radio FM to activate/deactivate the function.

Activating or deactivating HD Radio only affects the currently selected waveband.
