2009 Infiniti Fx50: Preset Hell

December 15, 2009

There are many ways to switch radio stations in the Infiniti FX50. But for some reason, all of the buttons, knobs, and dials skip through the presets only.

See that big dial in the middle? Turn it and it advances you through the presets. Try the arrows. They don't help. Push the AM-FM-SAT button, it sitches between the presets on the screen, jumping between bands.

Push the SEEK-CAT arrow. It seeks through the presets. Try the scan button. It scans through the presets.

Turn the tuning knob. It moves through the presets. Push the numbered buttons. As expected, they choose the specific preeset stations.

Shouldn't the tuning knob at least allow you to go station by station so you can set the presets to your liking? I'm sure it is possible to change the settings but looking in the manual while driving? Not a possibility.

Give up and listen to the classic rock station? My only choice.

Look in the manual after you get home? No longer care.
