HD radio in 2011+ 3 series with nav?

I've looked through the brochure for the 2011 3 series and it says that HD Radio is standard equipment, however, I don't know if that means it's also standard equipment for 3 series equipped with the navigation system? Does anyone have a 2011 3 series with nav and HD radio? Any help is much appreciated!

Mein Auto: Nothing yet
I have a '11 with Nav and HD Radio. The reception is awesome and clearly much better but weird part is HD will cut out sometimes... very rarely. I'm kind disappointed in the quality of Sirius though - HD is much clearer and louder hands down.

HD radio is nice if you live in an area with good coverage, but if you don't it's the most annoying feature.

My parents have 2013 Jaguar XJ with HD radio and where they live, HD radio coverage isn't fully rolled out yet so it constantly cutting in and out. There is no skip in music but the quality noticeably changes and it drive me crazy when I'm driving that car around town.

Sorry for the off topic comment...

Mine has Nav and HD radio. Had to turn the HD off because it kept switching from HD to regular Fm and became very annoying. The switchover isn't very seamless.

I have both and over the past year HD radio reception has improved greatly in my area. No more fading in and out.
