HD radio is pretty cool. It's like regular radio only better sounding. When compared to XM or Sirius you don't get nearly as much selection, because you're still limited to the same frequency bands as regular FM. But like in the picture, you do get sub channels for some stations. A few people are looking to plug their Zunes into their cars, sync via wi-fi and forget, so yeah I'm trying to keep up on the head unit news too. So I guess a Zune HD + Zune capable head unit is the next best thing.

@SnowItch
So the Terrain will recognize some Zunes but not others? I just read ecolodge's issue about the Zune 8 being finicky (http://www.terrainforum.net/index.php?topic=217.0). But any other reports? I'll ask and see if I can get a list of what vehicles are supported. Also (off topic) what don't you like about the Zune software (PM maybe?)?

No Pioneer units in these cars.

Hey Gearhead--When I started this thread I was really concerned about a lack of HD Radio capacity in the Terrain. The quality of HD Radio fidelity is quite remarkable and I used it almost exclusively over Satellite & regular FM in the Bimmer. I still use it when not driving the Terrain and will continue the quest to find an add on module to the Pioneer/Alpine unit w/Nav when availabe for my car. Ideally, it would integrate right into the infotainment system of our car, leaving the USB port for other accessories. From what I read and hear, many FM stations will convert to full HD over the coming years anyway. Does anyone know if HD Radio is integrated into the 2010 LaCrosse or Caddy SRX?? Looks to be similar , if not same, head unit.
@solar I meant to reply to this post.

Compatibility isn't between Nox and Terrain (they are the same - Alpine), it is between different Zune models.
It has nothing to do with headunits. Everything is done in the PDIM. Alpine only makes the DVD unit. If you want navi, Bosch makes that one.

@snowitch...where did "GMC On-Line Resources (Owner's Manuals, OnStar, Alpine, Pioneer, Recalls)" thread go????
