HD Radio to return to Chevy Traverse, others

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.

No HD Radio on the 2017 Bolt either which is the most technologically advanced vehicle GM has ever built.

I have found a work-around though... I stream the AM station through the radio.com app on my phone which plays through Android Auto on the Bolt.
Only downside is it takes 30+ seconds to change stations through the Radio.com app/AA.

"we're still here!" "no days off" "yada, yada yada..."
