Is it just me or do the steering wheel audio controls don't allow you to go through your FM radio station presets? Mine only goes up and down by frequency.

Let me know if anyone has figured out how to change station presets from the steering wheel.

If this is true then it's an unforgivable mistake by LR.
I also can not figure out how to scroll through presets in regular radio or satellite radio.

There is nothing in the owners manual that clears it up either.

Can anyone confirm?

If this turns out to be the case, we really need to demand that this is fixed. Un-freakin-believable :(

I, too, it causes some discomfort. On LR Freelander2 this was not - the station switches to the programming order.

The new machine settings do not allow this. I made the attempt. Or just frequency stations or by name in alphabetical order.
Today once again see manual.

I looked manual and checked personally.
Set stations "preference" will not work.
I stopped at the elections - "frequency".
Yes, it does not get directly through the button on the steering wheel to move to the preferred station.
We have to do a few clicks.

That is a blunder for sure. I bet they fix that with a firmware update later. Curious that it would be like that from the launch, a radio is a fairly well developed item in the automotive world.

I think it does as I've read that one guy had to have a download to include his HD radio capability. I'm assuming that was a firmware update?

But yeah, going into the presets on the touch screen and having to select each preset is a faux pas in today's technological world.

OK, no it's not quite as convenient as a steering wheel control button but you can use voice command and say "next preset "it will change to the next preset. it will do for now till they get this thing sorted.

DiscoDisco - Thanks for the updates. Keep us posted what your dealer says about it as it definitely has to be glitch.

Got a text back from the dealership today. They referred me to Land Rover.

I'm in sales and if I sold someone a piece of equipment and they had a question that I couldn't answer I would call the manufacturer until I got an answer. If I was so lazy and inept as to punt it and tell my client to call the manufacturer themselves and find out...... I'd lose a customer for life.

So I guess I'll call LR...

Good luck! I hope they don't give you the run around and tell you to see your dealer. I had that happen with an Audi once, no ownership after the sale and no answers.
