Why the heck, in the year 2019, with arguably Chevy's most advanced consumer vehicle ever...does the favorites list not show the name of the channel for SiriusXM?? Crazy. Unless there is some setting hidden deep that I am missing?

Does Sirius transmit the channel name? Even if it did, I'd bet that the Infotainment system would store the name as it existed when you made it a favourite, and Sirius changes the name of many of its channels from time to time.

Yes, it does transmit the channel names. If you press the channel list menu it shows all the channel names. Just doesn't cross over to the favorites list for some stupid reason.

I was just about to start a thread on this cuz I'm soooo annoyed, but searched and found this one. I have had Sirius in 7 cars over 17 years and I have NEVER had an issue with channel metadata not displaying until the Bolt. This is so incredibly annoying because when I want to listen to a particular channel (that I know I have favorites) I have no clue where it is! I just spend 2 minutes slowly scrolling through my favorite presents with the lower left steering wheel buttons, but even with that method the channel name doesn't appear in the gauge cluster until the station is fully loaded. This is beyond irritating for me cuz I listen to Sirius almost exclusively. ARRGH. Is there any best way to give feedback to Chevy/GM? I know it's small in the grand scheme of things but when you're in the car all day and listen to Sirius all the time it's gets real frustrating. And to the first person who is going to suggest it, no I haven't (and will not) be memorizing the channel numbers of all of my favorites, because there are often pop up temporary channels that appear with new numbers (such as the Dave Matthews channel currently), Holiday special channels that replace regular ones temporarily, etc.
Even more, I had a 2016 Volt and it displayed favorites channel info on the main screen just fine. This is a huge infotainment error IMO.
