Default FM reception

Just got a new Fuze a couple of days ago and so far it's great, just one problem on the FM reception though. When I first tune in to a station the reception is terrible, it's really garbled noise, but then it gets better and better over about 3 minutes 'til it comes in great. I've looked around and found nothing written about this. I live in the LA area. Thanks in advance.

I'm sure you've already done this but there is a STATIONS setting in the SETTINGS menu in the Fuze's firmware. The choices are USA or WORLD. Double check to see if it is set correctly. Or unfortunately you just may live in an area that gets crappy radio reception. You mentioned living in the LA area. I live in Ontario Canada in the country and on certain clear days (2-3 times/yr.) I could actually listen to Laker games on the radio!...true story.

The headphone cord is the FM antenna. Perhaps after a few minutes you may be extending the headphone cord to a greater degree? You could try different headphone and see if one with a longer cord gives better reception or worse reception. A longer headphone cord would probably help if you are far from the transmitters, but if you are near the transmitters a shorter headphone cord might help prevent signal overload.

Tried all that already. It's just the first few minutes that's bad after that it's great.
