How do you use the Song Seek menu on the satellite radio?

The Song Seek menu on your car’s satellite radio gives you quite a few capabilities. Ever wished you could save a song that you heard playing on the radio? This menu lets you do just that, as well as much more. Here’s what you should know:

  1. Press the Menu button in satellite radio mode.

  2. Press the OK button when the display shows Song Seek menu.

  3. Use the Up and Down arrows to choose the option you want from the following list:

  • Save This Song: This allows you to save a song to your car’s memory. It only saves the title, and you can only save 20 songs. If you fill it up, the next song you try to save will prompt you to delete one. When a saved song plays on any satellite radio station, you’ll get an audible prompt and you can go straight to that station.

  • Delete a Song: Use this option to delete a saved song name from the system. You’ll need to do this when you max out the memory if you want to save another song. Use the Up and Down arrows to cycle through song names and press OK to select the song you want to delete.

  • Delete All Songs: Want to clear all the songs saved to the system? Press OK on the Delete All Songs menu option. The system will prompt you to be sure you really want to do this. Press OK, and then hit Return once the songs are deleted.

  • Alerts: You can disable or enable alerts. These are the audible prompts that the system plays when one of your saved songs comes on. Press the OK button to toggle between disabled and enabled.

  • Channel Lockout: Use this function to “lockout” any undesired stations and also to unlock stations previously locked out. This is handy for parents who don’t want their children listening to specific stations. You’ll need to set a PIN that only you know to effectively secure the channel. PINs can be reset if necessary.
