HD Radio to return to Chevy Traverse, others

Quote:
General Motors may have yanked HD Radio out of some car models such as the Chevy Traverse, but it’s poised for a return. That’s according to Jon Kirchner, chief executive for HD audio tech company DTS. Kirchner blames a “bad antenna design” in some models for curbing digital radio service in some cars. “They ultimately put a halt on it,” Kirchner told the B. Riley & Co. Investor Conference in Los Angeles last week. GM is now working to use different antennas so HD Radio can again be part of the dashboard, although DTS shared no timeline.

Walking the fine line between jaw-dropping and a plain ol' yawn.

Epic fail for the 2017 Chevy Volt. No HD radio and not even option. The FM receiver is the weakest part of the car. I've lived in the same place for 20 years and this is the first time I cant listen to my favorite stations in my area. I am not totally sure if it the receiver, the electric operation of the Volt , or the lame shark fin antenna if you live more than 20 miles from the towers.

Quick Reference of Forum Rules
1) Do Not post pricing you found on-line or at a local dealer UNLESS IN A DEALS THREAD.
2) Do Not ask for, or offer, a receipt so people can price match.
3) Do Not say to "Call John Smith at ..." (you know what I mean)
4) Do Not put down someone else's choice in...
