  1. I always have the dealer change them when they do my annual state inspection. I do the same thing for the cabin filter.

    Lost HD Radio

    I had other work being done and car was there for 2 days. When I asked them about the HD Radio they said it was working fine. Now, I know it wasn't working a few weeks before I took it in and, when I dropped it off. Bottom line it was working fine. Hey, a Miracle happened. 😂 So this case is closed. BTW They changed all my lug nuts for free. I have the premium care extended warranty.

    I see you have upgraded the password security. My browser (Firefox) has now stopped complaining. Kudos!

    I dropped my car at the dealer's this morning will advise the solution.

    Although I still have to learn the finer features, I like what I see.

    Lost HD Radio

    HD-1 is the regular frequency 102.7. HD-2, HD-3 is a slightly different frequency. It's apparently only recognizing the regular frequency and not the offsets. Since the APIM does control this issue that's where the problem is. Now I know why they extended the warranty on the APIM. ;) Will be checking with the dealer soon.

    Lost HD Radio

    The switch for HD is illuminated. I was driving along and the station (WNEW 102.7-HD2) just disappeared. When I try to connect I get "station not available". The station is on the air I can get it in the house. I did a scan for HD stations and none were found. The regular (HD-1) station is fine. Other than this problem the Sync system seems to be working just fine.

    Lost HD Radio

    The other day while driving and listening to HD radio the station "went away". Just figured it was my location. Later determined that Sync was no longer recognizing HD Radio stations. I do know that there is an extended warranty on the APIM and I will take it to the dealer. Is this the type of problem I would experience if there was a problem with the APIM?

    Adding nav to sync 2 using forscan

    FWIW trying to "retrofit" technology is always going to be problematic.
  11. I've never had this happen on my 2014. The weather seems to have no effect on my Z.
  12. FWIW I got my official recall notice on my 2014 MKz today. (5-4-18)

    GPS Map Update '14 MKZ

    There is no actual installation. The card, which I say again, contains the maps, must be inserted in order to use Navigation.

    GPS Map Update '14 MKZ

    Yes, the A8 SD card would give you the latest maps.
