  2. Poor radio reception after installing new Pioneer head unit

    Mobile Electronics
    I recently had the factory head unit in my 2008 Honda CR-V EX replaced with a Pioneer AVIC 5200NEX unit that I purchased from Crutchfield. I was disappointed to learn that the AM/FM reception is not as good as what i previously had with the factory unit. (Fyi, the Pioneer is not an HD radio.)...
  3. XM satellite reception issues

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 CR-V
    I have a 2016 CR-V touring and I'm also new to satellite radio. What I have noticed is that I lose reception for a second or two when I drive by certain areas even though it is out in the open. I drive in my gf's jeep through the same areas and her cars never loses the signal. Does anyone have...
  4. AM Radio Reception 2017 EXL Navi

    Problems & Issues
    I just purchased the 2017 EXL with Navi and love the CRV. However, I am not sure if there is a problem with the AM radio or if that is how it works. I am comparing it to my 2008 Odyssey which gets reception beautifully all around town. The CRV is very static and frankly just sounds like a...
  5. Poor AM reception 2017 CRV Touring

    Problems & Issues
    I purchased a new 2017 CRV Touring last week. I primarily chose the Touring for the technology features and upgraded stereo. I have noticed that AM stations I normally get strong signals on in other vehicles now sound muffled. I want to check that the antenna was properly connected, but I cannot...
  6. 2016 Touring- Poor FM Radio Reception

    Problems & Issues
    Hi, I am new to this forum. I just purchased a 2016 Touring and so far I am very satisfied with it except the radio. There are several local radio stations that all of my other vehicles pick up well but my Honda barely picks them up. The stations are statically and just sound terrible. I have...
  7. 2011 CRV Radio Reception Irratic

    Problems & Issues
    I just got a 2011 CRV and the radio cannot pick up the public station's I normally get in my area, all at frequency's under 92, yet it can pick up all other station's in my area above 93. What is the problem? My old 2008 CRV picked up the public station's with no problems. It's maddening that...
  8. FM radio reception

    Problems & Issues
    Greetings, New to this Forum community having just purchased a 2011 CRV EX 4WD. My question is about the FM radio reception or lack thereof. Local stations (within 100 km or 60 miles) are constantly fuzzy, weak or crackling - sometimes just not picked up at all. Is their a solution to this...
  9. XM Reception

    Mobile Electronics
    I'm new to satellite radio, however the XM on my 2015 seems to cut out too frequently. Even passing under one lane bridges (without stopping) will cause it to drop. And I'm totally screwed if there are trees on the side of the road, even if they aren't overhead. I've ridden in other vehicles...
  10. Unresolved conflicts reception

    Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    As we tend to grew older our minds became step by step disenchanted by negative external influences. At some purpose we tend to began to hesitate and question our instincts. once a replacement obstacle or growing pain arose, we tend to stumbled and fell down. This happened many times...
  11. 2008 CR-V EX Radio Reception

    Problems & Issues
    I have a 2008 CRV EX AWD whose radio reception (FM) is terrible. By terrible I mean that it does, somewhat with a little static, receive some stations (the ones that are know high signal strength and local) but not anything that is less than strong (at least by my other cars' radio reception)...
  12. 97 CRV Radio reception very poor

    Problems & Issues
    Hi, I just got this CRV. The radio reception is very poor for stations that come in fine for my other vehicles. How far out should the antenna be? As of right now it sticks out by around 12". Any other ideas/suggestions? Thanks.
  13. Radio Reception

    Mobile Electronics
    Hi All, I have very poor radio reception, signals fade in and out very quickly. I have tried a longer mast but no improvement. I have had a multimeter on the aerial plug and the screw mast screws into and get an open circuit, so either the coax is broken or the aerial is amplified! I have seen...
  14. Static problems with radio

    Problems & Issues
    Hi, My wife and I just leased a 2010 LX 2WD model and we are having problems with the radio reception. It tunes in all the local stations, but there is a lot of static intereference. Is anyone else having this problem? Thanks!
  15. '01 Radio has poor reception.

    Mobile Electronics
    I'm not overly impressed by the stock radio in my 2001 CRV. Even w/the antenna fully extended occasional static on exceptional strong broadcasting sations. I'm looking to replace but I haven't found one which offers the same instrument colours. (My may have to settle for a white display.) Any...
  16. FM Radio Reception needs improving

    Problems & Issues
    My 2007 CRV EXL has much worse FM radio reception than my old 92 Accord. I noticed that the antenna is much shorter than on the Accord. Proper 1/4 wavelength would be nearly three feet as on the Accord, therefore they probably are using a low efficiency "stub" antenna with a matching coil...
