Default 1-6 Button on steering wheel

My '09 1LT Z51 has a button labelled "1-6" on the steering wheel, it's not mentioned in the owner's manual and darned if I can figure out what it does... something to do with the paddle shifters when in "Sport" mode (?) Thanks.

It's for changing your radio station presets.

I believe they cycle through your preset radio channels

Yes, it does. See pages 3-108 and 3-109.

Thanks for all your inputs, I thought of that just an instant after I hit the "submit" button.

It will only select the next preset station on the current band. There's a maximum of 6 of those that you can set. To go to a preset station on a different band, you've got to set the radio to that band first.

Don't forget to put the dilithium crystals into the flux capacitor before using the button or you might damage something, and Scotty would be very upset with you.

When in doubt, read the owners manual ( every page of it )

Why do that? Then we would miss all the forum entertainment!
