What is HD Radio in New Cars

If a new car offers HD Radio, it means it’s a richer type of radio in 2 ways:

1 – the sound is digital, so it’s less noisy than analog FM

2 – it allows the radio station to transmit both audio and data

See how much information is on the screen?

How to contact the station via text or Twitter.  Then the screen refreshes, and shows the artist and song name that’s currently playing.

Many auto manufacturers offer HD Radio as an audio upgrade in new cars.

Example – the above screen is in a 2016 Mazda3 in which HD Radio comes standard, second trim (GX) and up.



When’s the Last Time you Wiped your Phone?

Think of it like a spring / fall cleaning, when you de-clutter and start fresh, and give it more room to function by deleting years-old photos and apps.

Imagine opening iTunes and seeing this, so beautiful…

*30 minutes*

1 – Backup – photos / contacts / calendar / notes

2 – General > Reset > Erase All Content and Settings

3 – Enter passcode and follow instructions

4 – For sure you’re backed up right

5 – Click Erase

6 – Re-install apps

7 – Use the opportunity to change all your passwords (or at least – bank / email / Facebook)

8 – Done.


When the phone is now behaving like new, you’ll be all, “why was I putting up with that lag all this time…”

Do it.
