FM Radio presets

Is there a way to delete a preset? I have quite a few presets that I no longer want.I know that I can put a new station over an old station, but that's not I want.

You want to actually reduce the number of presets? Outside of hiring a programmer with access to the source code, I don't think that is possible. You could set all the unused ones to say 88.1 or 100.0, something you will easily recognize not to push.

The presets that I want to delete are duplicates of existing stations [don't ask my why] & I guess I could override them with stations when I travel away from home. Still it's a PITA.
I'd think there would be an option to add/delete presets, because if someone wanted to have 40+ SiriusXm stations then there wouldn't be any remaining presets available for AM/PM stations [or visa versa].

Forty presets? How much time do you spend in your car? 10 seems like more than enough on top of smart phone playlists and internet streaming.

A Sirius subscriber who is an avid fan of sports & music could easily fill 40 presets.

Depending on the time of day, and the length of travel: SiriusXm; News, "talk", music, comedy, sports. FM radio, local stations, out of town local stations. All of which are on the same presets that can be intermingled.

Myron -

The only solution I can come up with would be to reset the stereo to the factory defaults, this should cause all customized settings (including radio presets) to revert back.

Sounds [no pun intended] good to me. How do I do that? The only thing that I have is some SiriusXm & FM... Easy to redo.

It'll either be a setting within the menu, or that little button you use a pen or pin to push. I'll look it up later today and get back to u. Stand by.

There is a system reset button just to the right of the volume knob. It is not clear to me that that clears out the station settings. Those do survive a flat 12V battery.

But if you can easily use 40 presets, just set them up! The old settings will be overwritten.
