2009 Dodge Challenger R/T: Nails the New School, Fails the Old School

It's a funny thing about the audio interface in our navigation-equipped 2009 Dodge Challenger R/T. If you hook up your iPod, it's great. In fact, this is one of the nicestinterfaces I've ever encountered for browsing albums, artists, playlists and podcasts.

But if you want to do something old-school, like say, listen to an LA Dodgers game on AM radio, the touchscreen interface is a pain in the butt. There's no tuning knob, so you have to tap, tap, tap those arrow "keys" until you get the station you want. (You can't use the buttons on the steering wheel for this function, as they only "seek" between presets, rather than tune.)

You've told me before than I need to ditch my CD collection. And you're probably right on that one. But until Sirius starts offering an MLB package, I can't give up AM radio.
