New York HD radio reception

Anyone in NY notice that the hd radio reception is terrible and constantly buffering and then going into hd mode and then back out. I have a 2014 and 2015 and they both do this and on the latest software in both cars.

Nassau County here and I had the car 4 days before I put the HD out of my misery. Just standard analog radio for me. HD reception is terrible.

I am in westchester county and see really frequent buffering. Never had an issue with any other vehicle with HD. I have a 2014 and 2015 and both act the same way in regards to HD.

Re: New York HD radio reception

FM Digital HD radio is "line of sight" transmission, which means if buildings are blocking the signal, you get buffering. It's also compressed, much like MP3 audio, so it is always chasing it's tail to give an uninterrupted stream to the listener.
