    Radio Broadcast Data System - RBDS
    This feature, which may not be available in your area, functions only with FM broadcasts. The radio in your car is equipped with an advanced system allowing information from broadcasters to be transmitted visually, as text, together with the audio signal. This information is then decoded by the radio and made available for several new and unique features.

    The RBDS or Radio Broadcast Data System operates in the FM band only, and the information transmitted is supplied exclusively by participating broadcasters.

    Volvo has no control over the accuracy of the data or information.

    Coverage by local broadcasters may be limited at this time, but as the technology and benefits grow, you will find the radio in your car is equipped to take advantage of this system.

    PI (Program Information) seek
    When an FM station has been stored as a preset, the radio also stores RBDS program information if it is available. When the preset is selected at a later time, the radio tries to access updated program information. In weak signal areas, there may be a delay before the station becomes audible. During this delay, there will be no sound.

    PI seek can be interrupted by pressing EXIT.

    Radio text
    Certain RBDS stations broadcast program information, which can be shown in the display.

    To start this function:

    Alarm
    Alarms bulletins are transmitted automatically by certain RBDS stations. The function cannot be deactivated.

    "Alarm!" is shown in the radio display when an alarm message is sent. The function is used to warn motorists of serious accidents, etc.

    Compact disc care
    Keep the following in mind when playing/handling compact discs

  • Use CD standard EN 60908 discs only. Discs not meeting this standard may cause problems with system (poor sound). CD-R discs can cause listening problems due to the quality of the disc or recording equipment used.
  • Keep the discs clean. Wipe them with a soft, clean, lint-free cloth, working from the center outward. If necessary, dampen the cloth with a neutral soap solution. Dry thoroughly before using.
  • Never use cleaning spray or antistatic liquid. Use only cleaners specifically made for CDs.
  • Use discs of the correct size only (3.5" discs should never be used).
  • Do not put tape or labels on the disc itself. They could become stuck in the player.
  • Volvo does not recommend the use of plastic outer rings on the disc.
  • Condensation may occur on discs/ optical components of the changer in cold winter weather. The disc can be dried with a clean, lint-free cloth. Optical components in the CD changer may, however, take up to one hour to dry off.
  • Never attempt to play a damaged CD.
  • When not in use, the discs should be stored in their covers. Avoid storing discs in excessive heat, direct sunlight or dusty locations.
