Smile 2010 Dodge Ram 1500 SLT - Sirius Settings

Hello to all, just joined this forum after having been and still a member of the avenger forums. Please help me with my new Sirius radio in my new truck. I am trying to get the display to default to the song being played rather than it defaulting to the station I am tuned to. In my avenger the default on Sirius is to have the song, and time displayed. When pressing info you get the group or singer of such song. The only settings while tuned to Sat in the new truck is to set the time and showing the sat ID. Since the new trucks dont come with the owners and users manual anymore I just cant find any other settings. Its probably easy as pie but I just dont see it....Thanks Guys for the help in advance

I don't know for sure, BUT
i think you are now on Sirius channel 1, its the default until you reset it, here is the radio that i have in mine
http://www.dodge.com/en/owners/mygig/
pick yours from this site, your radio type can be found in the lower right hand corner of the unit
http://www.dodge.com/en/owners/quality/

if you have the center floor console, look in the lower compartment of the console, thats where my i found my books, if you did not get the books, tell a service writer to get you them
This is what you should have received with your truck, yours of coarse will have 2010 written on it

You can download a copy of the owners manual HERE. I have one on my main computer and the little netbook that I take out to the garage when I'm puttering on the truck. I've got a plastic cover on my netbook and it's easier to wipe the grease off the netbook than to try and keep the paper book clean, and if I really need a sketch or diagram I print it out real quick.

hold the info button for a few seconds.
that should leave the song up, then when you hit info you'll get the artist for a few seconds and it will revert back to the song title.

have you had your SIRIUS radio activated yet??
http://www.sirius.com/install

you never said which radio that you have, does it have a monitor????
even with AM & FM radio, there will be an info button on a soft key, when that button is pushed, it will tell you the name of the song

Sorry the radio does not have a monitor....What I meant is I want the song title to come up by default not the station which is what is coming up now. In my avenger when I turn on the sat. and a song is played the title of the song comes up on the screen by default in the truck the station comes up by default and you have to press info to get the title then info again to get the group. All I want to know is how to set a new default.....Thanks
