Radio Broadcast Data System -
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.
Certain RBDS stations broadcast program information, which can be shown in the display.
To start this function:
1. Select FM1 or FM2 and press the MENU button.
2. Press ENTER.
3. Select RADIOTEXT in the menu and press ENTER.
To deactivate this function, select RADIOTEXT again and press ENTER.
