New to Optima and Radio tuning question

Hi all.

I'm new to the world of Optima, having moved over from BMW and Mitsubishi.

I have a question regarding the tuning on a non-nav stock radio in a 2014 Optima - the tuning only increases in increments of 0.2 - this means that I cannot hit on 92.0 FM (One of the few English stations here in the Dubai!) for example - is there a way around this?? I can get 91.9 and 93.1, but no dead on number!

Thanks for any help.
Daniel

The FM radio can be automatically set to tune into all stations strong enough.
The trouble some people have is if you then select DAB you loose all FM Unless you remember to lock them in on your pre set buttons.

Thanks for the reply Jeff.

Dubai doesn't have DAB as yet.... The radio station in question has a very strong signal, I pick it up in every other car I drive, including a Kia Sorento (different head unit however.)

The head unit in the Optima is a non nav Uvo. Reading the users manual, it does say that it goes up in increments of 0.2. There are many radio stations here, and either side of 92.0 there are radio stations (91.9, 92.1)....these don't come through very well, lots of static, but again, that's the same in all the cars I drive...
