    It drives me crazy that the steering wheel controls only allow me to flip through presets. Is there any way to use the steering wheel controls to tune to the next station (up or down) or scan? I always end up driving around with my right hand holding on to the top of the display and using my thumb to press the up and down buttons (though they point left and right).

    Hold the scan button down until it beeps and it will automatically go to the next available frequency.

    ^ And depending on if you are using a usb stick, or radio, or sat, holding down the Mode button acts like a mute or pause. the up or down (volume) buttons cancels the mute/pause.

    Thank you. It is a little more annoying than just touching UP/DOWN, but it is indeed better than nothing.
