Introduction
The audio system in your car is operated with the buttons and knobs in the system's front panel. Certain functions, such as adjusting the volume, changing radio stations or tracks on a CD, etc, can also be controlled with the optional steering wheel-mounted keypad.
The audio system is available in two versions:

HU-650
Features: AM/FM radio, single-disc CD player, 4x25W output, six speakers.

HU-850
Features: AM/FM radio, integrated 6-disc CD changer, 4x50W or 4x70W output plus 25W Dolby Pro Logic II, eleven speakers. A subwoofer mounted under the floor in the cargo area is available as an option. Consult your Volvo retailer.

Compact disc care

  • Keep the discs clean. Wipe them with a soft, clean, lint-free cloth, working from the center outwards. 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). The discs should conform to the norms EN60908 (IEC60908).
  • Do not put tape or labels on the disc itself.
  • 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 disc which is damaged in any way.
  • When not in use, the discs should be stored in their covers. Avoid storing discs in excessive heat, direct sunlight or dusty locations.

    RBDS functions HU-650/HU-850

    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, "PI seek" will be displayed and 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. The text will be shown twice in the display.

    To start this function:
    Press the FM button for several seconds.

    To deactivate this function:
    Press FM briefly.
    Station information will be shown twice in the display.

    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.
