Volvo XC90: Activating and deactivating the HD Radio™ - AUDIO, MEDIA AND INTERNETVolvo XC90: 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.

If HD radio is deactivated, the radio will be unable to receive digital broadcasts but it will continue to function as a conventional radio (analog FM receiver). Please note that when HD is switched off, it will not be possible to tune in to sub-channels.

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