Radio problem 2012 335is Convert.

Started having strange issue with the radio. Lets say I am pulling into parking lot or garage while I listen to the radio. I turn the car off and when i start it next morning or only few hours later car radio is tuned off the any usable frequency. I can hear only scratchy radio background noise. I can tune it to any radio station manually by pushing preset button or with Idrive dial. After that radio works fine. It looks like it is loosing memory of the last frequency before turned off. I would hate to bring it to the dealer only for that reason. I can live with it until next oil change and have them look at it then. It is Harman C. premium sound system. Anyone had similar issue and remember what was the solution to it? Tanks for suggestions in advance.

Are you tuned to any HD2 or HD3 stations? This happens to me only when I'm tuned to one of those stations. Have your battery checked. Weird things usually happen with bad batteries.

Thanks for the tip. It could be like you said. Yes I listen to the HD stations. I will start testing that theory. I will make sure that I remember if I turned the car off with or without HD station tuned in.
