RDS

Overview of the RDS
function
Radio Data System (RDS) is a broadcasting
service that allows FM stations to send
additional digital information along with the
regular radio programme signal. Your car
stereo offers you a variety of services. Here are
just a few: retuning the same programme
automatically, listening to traffic
announcements, and locating a station by
programme type.
Notes
• Depending on the country or region, not all of
the RDS functions are available.
• RDS may not work properly if the signal strength
is weak or if the station you are tuned to is not
transmitting RDS data.
Displaying the station
name
The name of the current station lights up in the
display.
Select an FM station (page 9).
When you tune in an FM station that
transmits RDS data, the station name
appears in the display.
Note
The "*" indication means that an RDS station is
being received.
Changing the display item
Each time you press (DSPL/PTY), the item
changes as follows:
Station Name (Frequency) y Programme type
After you select the desired item, the display
will automatically change to the Motion
Display mode after a few seconds.
In the Motion Display mode, all the above
items are scrolled in the display one by one in
order.
Tip
The Motion Display mode can be turned off. (See
"Changing the sound and display settings" on
page 16).
Note
"NO NAME" appears if the received station does
not transmit RDS data.
Retuning the same
programme automatically

— Alternative Frequencies (AF)

The Alternative Frequencies (AF) function
automatically selects and retunes the station
with the strongest signal in a network. By
using this function, you can continuously
listen to the same programme during a long-
distance drive without having to retune the
station manually.
Frequencies change automatically.
