Radio reception

Hello. Have had my 500 for a few weeks now and have noticed that the radio has rather a lot of intermittent crackly interference when i am driving around. It doesn't matter what station i am listening to - local or national - it happens on all of my FM presets. I've unscrewed the aerial to have a look and couldn't see anything obvious. I've not experienced this much interference on the radios of any other cars i have owned and was wondering if this is a common problem with Fiat 500 radios or something i should mention to the dealer. Has anyone else noticed this on theirs?

Re: Radio reception

Check that you have AF switched on (that's the bit that automatically re-tunes to the strongest signal) and then go into your menu settings and see what the sensitivity is set to. If it's set to 'distant' try changing it to 'local'.
