Does anyone know if there is a way to display the XM Song Title and Artist on one screen? Currently the Channel Number, Channel Name, Category, and either the Title or Artist are shown.

The Category seems like such a waste. I have had XM for over 7 years and with multiple vehicles. I haven't seen any other vehicle manufacturer (Hyundai, Toyota, Ford, Dodge, etc.) or XM product that makes you toggle between those two.

I understand the limited character representation and can unfortunately deal with that but it would still be nice to have those two show up together.

Totally agree. There should be a scrolling feature. I'm going to read the manual. May be a hidden feature...wishful thinking.

I too was very frustrated to see that.

The sad truth is the three least important pieces of the puzzle, channel number, Channel Name and Category all get top billing over artist and song info.

If I'm elected to office of President of audio display information of North American Honda I will put the channel number, (usually 2 or 3 digits) on the same line as the channel name.

XM = part of audio system = thread belongs in the audio forum

Please post in appropriate forums to avoid a thread lock.

On our Ody with navigation, pressing the "audio" button on the right displays a screen with artist, title, volume, station (channel number, especially handy now that SiriusXM changed virtually all their XM station numbers), category and some other info. Is that what you're looking for? :huh:

Thanks for the info. I don't have a Nav system so maybe that is where the issue arises (not providing the option if you didn't get the upgrade :mad:). The issue here is that we only have either the artist or the title but not both. Having to see the cattegory "More" on the screen is supremely frustrating when I would much rather have the title of the song I am listening to.

On a related note, has anyone noticed that the display has more characters when it pulls from the USB drive than when using the regular radio features?
