Steering Wheel channel changer

is there a way to change channels (using Sirius XM) via the steering wheel to flip from preset to preset rather than just tuning (going up/down one channel)? I know I can touch the screen to select my preset channel, but that would require me to divert my eyes from the road. not sure if there is a setting in the Uconnect that can change this.

thanks!

On the back side of the steering wheel........ Left buttons change channels, right button changes volume. Toggle up and down.
Pressing changes the modes
It should be covered in the owners manual

i'm aware that the left button changes channels, but I don't want to move just one dial up or down, I want to skip to my next preset channel. for example, when tuned in to Sirius XM, I have my presets set to 8, 9, 25, 34, 37, and 43. If I'm currently listening to preset #3 (channel 25) and want to jump to preset #4 (channel 34), I don't want to have to press the up button nine times, I just want to press it once.
basically, I'd like to toggle through the preset channels, not ALL of the channels.

Just press it, don't toggle then.
I'm not in my car ATM, so I'm trying to remember what I do.
Check your owner's manual.
I can toggle from preset to preset using the buttons on the back of the steering wheel.
It does work!

Press on the center of the button, so it doesn't "toggle"

10-64 is correct, press the round button in the center of the switch.

Here's what the Users Guide says:

Left Switch
• Push the switch up or down to search for
the next listenable station.
• Push the button in the center to select the
next preset radio station.

Right Switch
• Push the switch up or down to increase or
decrease the volume.
• Push the button in the center to change
modes AM/FM/SXM.

yup, and that worked. just wished that I could go backwards in the preset list too rather always having to move forwards. but this suffices.

thanks for confirming!
