I love my s50, I wouldn't trade it for the world. I can actually have an interesting, enjoyable drive every morning and night. I get alot of static, is there a way to prevent the static from coming through?
The reason why you are hearing static is because you are receiving interference from a terrestrial radio station that is transmitting on the same FM frequency� To put it in simple English: Your S50 has a default setting of 88.1fm and there is another radio station in your area that transmits on this same frequency �88.1� so the signal from your S50 and the terrestrial radio station are fighting for the same setting, 88.1� All you need to do is change you FM signal on your S50 to �for example� 88.7fm and it will be clear as a bell as long as there are no other terrestrial radio stations transmitting on that same frequency. There is no need to run to the store and buy some gadget to fix the problem� Just change your FM setting and you will be on your way!
