Hello All, New to the forum. Just got my Stevlio yesterday and love it, except for one thing. The infotainment system it terrible. Really struggling with the radio presets and find it hard to believe that there are only 6 presets to be shared between AM / FM and Sirius radio. Can anyone offer some advice on the presets.

Also is there a way to change or disable the sound on the lane departure feature. The noise is very annoying?

Appreciate any feedback that anyone can offer.

Glad to know you + enjoy your Stelvio! As to infotainment as I am getting used to the Navi, it is becoming easy and fast to use. As to the pre-sets, you can use the left/right arrows on the right side of the wheel to scroll through options between preset stations. It involves learning the channels by category you enjoy but works well enough for me. Example with a preset for '60s' easy to scroll up/down or Fox News through range of options in the category. Small adjustment - 99.9% of the car is perfect and I am enjoying the small differentiation as part of the personality of the vehicle- hope you do too in time.

As to lane camera, press the end of the turn signal stalk to toggle in and out with confirmation in the multifunction display in the center. Not sure how much I will use this feature except when drowsiness takes over however by merely being there insurance savings justify it! Interesting to note adding the vehicle was US$58 every 6 months over our 10 year old 190K Jeep so the nannies save money and potentially accidents.

Welcome to the forum, yeah the infotainment center is definitely not the best out there.

Scalewoodman,
Thanks for advice. I have been driving mine now for several weeks now. Have figured it out most things and got used to how things work differently from my Grand Cherokee. As for the presents, got it now. Found that you are not limited to the seven and that you can keep adding them beyond the standard ones that appear across the bottom. So this is no longer an issue.

I am really loving this vehicle and love the fact that I do not count 50 some Stevlio's on my way home from work. This vehicle unique and way cool. :)

Thanks again!

MI-Stelvio-- thanks for the tidbit. I never tried to add more. This is great news and appreciate how we can help each other on this forum. Can't wait to add a few more after work!

Was thinking on the way in this morning how lame the touchscreen systems are-- how hard it is to hit the buttons and scroll through the screens in motion (as in driving down the road) and how well the knob system works-- always right there at hand and not affected by bumps and road imperfections. Also the 2nd volume knob, when you get used to it, is very handy... wife after a couple glasses of wine likes to crank the volume so she has her own access (and I have mine to bump it down a decibel or two)... Between us of course...

Hope you were able to add more. The key was through the favorites star upper left corner of the radio screen and then go to edit favorites / add station. The first seven show up at the top of the list and then all the ones after that have a star in front of them at the bottom of the list. I have around 20 now mixed between AM / FM / Sirius. The cool part of doing this is that you do not have to keep changing radio bands to go between the three modes. The only bummer part is that you have to keep hitting the star in order to get back into the favorites list and then select the next station. I wish there was a way to keep the screen up so you could scroll through quickly without having to go back in again. Anyone found a method for this?

Couldn't agree with you more on the sharing of info aspect for our Stelvio's. I too appreciate all of the info that everyone contributes and to be honest I have learned more from the forum than I did from the dealer when I picked mine up.

I think you made a bunch of friends with the adding presets tip. It was a complaint I read several times and was slightly worried about myself.

Glad to have a new member on the community.
Keep enjoying the exclusivity while you can because being one of the hottest SUV's out right now you can bet there will be enough showing up soon.

I had another ah ha moment in my Stelvio today, related to the radio presets and my favorites. Maybe some of you know this already, but if not I hope this helps. I found it strange initially that you could not use the steering wheel scan buttons to scroll through your favorites and was not comfortable with having to take eyes off the road to change from favorite station setting to another using the puck. Well guess what you can re-program the steering wheel scan / seek button to do just that. Go into radio mode, go to settings and change the seek mode to "favorites". Then you can use the steering wheel seek buttons to go between your favorites as apposed to pulling back on the puck. Was a great discovery today! Every day is an adventure with this vehicle. Not missing my Grand Cherokee at all!

Perfect! Thank you! I was looking for an easier way to access favorites.


Does anyone know if there is an option to see what is playing on a favorite station before hitting enter? My Audi allows me to see what is playing. I use this feature to skip commercials on Bloomberg radio.

Omg, thank you so much for this info! I was getting frustrated that I wasn't easily able to scroll thru my favorites and I couldn't find it in the manual.

Once you get used to infotaintment (pre-2020) it becomes intuitive. My 2019 Merc c63 infotainment is less intuitive for sure.

I can’t find what you refer to as radio mode and settings. Can you elaborate on this setting change.? Also. I can not figure out how to save favorite songs, if you know how!
