    Question XM Radio ??'s

    Hello - just recently picked up my 2009 CTS4 Black Raven, with Premium package. I am switching over from my other car that had Sirius Radio and I was able to just goto a screen and punch in the station I wanted. I can not seem to find that feature that will allow me to just punch in the station number.

    The other question I have is at the bottom of the display it appears there are only 6 pre-set stations for all bands (AM, FM, SAT) or am I missing something?

    Any other tips/trick with this NAV/SAT are much appreciated.

    I don't believe you can enter a station number directly, or at least I haven't found a way in the five days I've had my car.

    You can configure the number of favorite pages that are displayed (I can't remember how many), with each page containing 6 presets.

    From the owners manual, section 7-6:

    Configuring the Number of
    Favorite Pages

    The number of favorite pages can
    be set up using the CONFIG button.
    To setup the number of favorite
    pages:

    1. Press the CONFIG button to
    display the radio setup menu.
    2. Press the softkey located below
    the FAV tab.
    3. Select the desired number of
    favorites pages by pressing
    the softkey located below the
    displayed page numbers.
    4. Press the FAV button, or let the
    menu time out, to return to the
    original main radio screen
    showing the radio station
    frequency tabs and to begin
    the process of programming
    favorites for the chosen number
    of pages.

    Once they are all configured, you can press the Favorites button to scroll through all the screens.

    I should note that this information is from a 2011 owners manual.

    As far as I have found, there is no way to enter a direct station number. None of my last 5 GM cars have had that ability.

    Thanks for the responses. I will go out and try setting up those pages.

    There are 3 voice commands you can use

    If you are already on an XM station, you can say
    Radio <Channel>

    You can also try:
    Radio Select <Channel> XM
    Radio <Channel> XM


    They work for me nicely
