Took my Encore to the dealer this morning for an intermittent radio problem.
When starting the car in the morning, the radio will sometimes switch to the connected USB device.... No matter in which mode ( FM or XM ) it was left the night before.
I thought this required a simple software update as discussed earlier this year in this forum. Apparently, this is a new problem and known to GM.
If the USB device ( or any aux. device ) is left connected, the radio will sometimes automatically default to that device upon power up. This happens every now and then. For the time being GM suggests not to leave the USB device connected or leave it connected and when the problem happens just switch back to the FM or XM station we were originally listening to .

I use all of them regularly ...



XM .. usually 70son7
USB .. stick always inserted with my 1200+ songs
CD .. custom burned with mp3's
FM .. whatever
AM .. talk radio


The system always defaults to the last used state with no problems.

Pandora via Bluetooth restarts to am/fm/xm when i start the car up again. Mostly due to BT connwction.

OK by me if the default is USB
USB = Commercial Free

My first and only choice
