2015 Volkswagen GTI: Radio Reset
November 13, 2014
If one neglects to manually shut-off the audio system in our new 2015 Volkswagen GTI before shutting the car off, it appears as if the power to the audio unit is cut, sort of.
Here's a photo of what transpires: Upon start up, the tuner self-selects the 87.7 frequency, plays that through the speakers, yet the display shows the last "legitimate" station that was played before shutting the car off.
If, however, one remembers to manually shut-off the audio system before exiting the car, it keeps the last station in the tuner. Strange. We'll keep an eye on this.
