    I have noticed that ~50% of the time when I get in my car, and it is set to a local FM radio station, the radio has to "search" to find the station. By "search," I mean that there are pauses and short bursts of static about 5 to 10 times (varies) before it acquires the station. This only happens on FM radio (might also happen on AM, but I don't listen to any AM stations), but I haven't had it happen when I was listening to a Slacker station when I got out of the car.

    Anybody else have this happen? Do you know of a fix?

    Happens to me too. Local service guy reckons it's common, and started after a certain release (?7.1).
    Hopefully there's a fix coming.
