Hi Guys,

The audio in our XTP keeps fading in & out around town (Melbourne), almost like it is going from Stereo to Mono as the signal strength isn't strong enough.

Has anyone else had this? Is there a setting that we need to change? It's starting to get very annoying....

The sensitivity of the radio section is not up to that of FalcaDores but should work in a Big City. Take it back to the dealer and complain. They will check that every thing is plugged in and the grounding screws are tight.

If still no joy then change the stubby antenna for one of the longer bee sting whips approximately 50 cm. The Mazda 3 one fits so will lots of others - Focus, VW ect. You can get a generic one from Autobahn
for $20.

If you have the Surround settings on it often screws with the audio on radio for some reason. I dont think it's a signal problem at all and it seems common to all the SatNav Audios in Foresters.

I leave my settings on Bypass and have had no issues.

If you want to hear it REALLY bad try the Dolby setting - FM dropouts all over the shop!

I had the same issue and once switch off the fancy settings it now works fine - I'm sure you'll find this will help.

OK I've turned off the surround, so i'll see how it goes over the next few days.

Cheers!!
