The Bose system in my '05 SE has a weird problem that I have not seen on the boards: it unexpectedly changes .2 mHz in either direction. For example, if the radio is tuned to 98.9, it will suddenly change to 99.1 or 98.7. It's only done this recently. What is it?

I'd guess it may be a faulty tuner dial. Road vibrations may be causing something to move in the dial and change the station.

Horrible/Sporadic AM reception on radio

05 Armada LE... with NAV. Got a very annoying radio problem that registers itself only in AM. Basically reception cuts off when Im driving under bridges, overpasses, etc.. Also, when i hit a bump, or over a bumpy road, it is extremely static. After a while, it stops. Nothing in FM, just am... and it doesn't matter what station. Going to take it to the dealer for other things, but I've seen some other forums where other people have had same/similar problems and they have replaced radio but problem still continues.. any ideas or info about this. It's also hard to reproduce, because i can do it on ride from work to home, but some other areas, I can not.

Loose antenna, somewhere (the Armada, not you), or maybe a poor connection inside the head unit. Used to be, you never got AM reception under bridges or underpasses. AM operates at a lot lower frequency and power level than FM - we'll skip the long, boring dissertation about why: it's that big lump of concrete and earth, that's all. Newer radios and antenna systems are much better about getting even the lower signal in the dark areas. You should not have that problem and Nissan should fix it, IMO.
