    Default Please help settle a stupid bet (and believe me, it's dumb)

    Sirius/XM users need not answer. I know terrestrial radio sucks.

    In your car. Are your radio station presets set in order of stations you prefer or by location on the radio dial?

    IE: do you set your radio stations by your order of preference? (1 button is 101.1 because it's my fave, 2 button is 94.7 because it's my second fave, 3 button is set to 97.1 cuz it's my 3rd fave etc etc...

    or

    Do you set your radio stations due to dial location? IE: 1 button is 92.3, 2 button is 93.1, 3 button is 94.7, 4 button is 95.5 etc etc....

    Your responses are appreciated. Sorry to waste your time.

    I have Sirus, but there are presets for that as well. My presets, going back to when I had terestrial radio as well, have always been favorite station Number 1, next favorite Number 2, etc.

    I set mine by dial location and favs. I really only listen to a few stations on a regualr basis. The first 2 or 3 are my favs, then the others are all by dial location.

    By preference, regardless of placing on the dial. Bare in mind I live in Southern Florida, and there is basically one of each when it comes to station formatting, yet the first button is the "Morning Commute" station, be it AM News or FM Talk/Chatter/Mindlessness.

    Then the rock, the local high school (for alternative stuff), country, oldies...(we have no classical station anymore).

    Same with the AM: Sports talk, then news.

    Unless one enjoys finger exercises, the logic of keeping things in the order of appearance on the dial escapes me. I have enough trouble driving the damned car defensively, what with all of the mindless twits on the road yacking on cell phones, reading newspapers (I'm not kidding), putting on make-up...you know, everything but concentrating on driving.

    Pretty much by random. Who needs organization when you've only got 15 total presets?

    You have to love the radio controls on the backside of the steering wheel.

    Maybe that is the reason Danica Patrick had so much trouble this year.

    i guess i'm kind of a square... i only have 6 presets on my car stereo for one grouping of fm stations, 6 more for another fm grouping, and 6 for am... i only use up one of the fm groupings, and put them in dial order, as i do for the am presets... it would otherwise make my head explode trying to figure out what i put first, second, third...

    Runaround... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around... around...

    on the FM band, they're all sequential, lowest to highest of what i listen to. i didn't add the country or oldies stations. i have a couple AM stations set, mainly for the very rare instance i need traffic, news or sports scores.

    in my Wrangler i also can set 18 Sirius presets. on the first set of presets, it's H100 first, then the next five are the channels i listen to most. next two sets are channels i'm just starting to get into or stuff i listen to occasionally.

    in my Crossfire and the truck, i have to use the FM modulator for Sirius, so 88 point whatever is the first preset, then up from there. eventually i will have identical Pioneers in both my Jeeps and the settings will be the same.

    This isn't dumb. This is what seperates us from the animals.

    Programmed by order of preference for me.
