RADIO BROADCAST DATA SYSTEM (RBDS)

WARNING

Do not adjust the touchscreen controls, or allow the system to distract the driver, while the vehicle is moving. Driver distraction can lead to accidents, potentially causing serious injury or death.

The radio is equipped with a Radio Broadcast Data System (RBDS) which enables the media system to receive extra information with normal FM radio signals.

NOTES

Not all FM radio stations broadcast RBDS information.

To view or alter the RBDS settings:

  1. Touch the settings icon.¹

  2. From the SETTINGS pop-up menu select AM/FM Settings.

  3. Select from the available options.

The AM/FM settings options are as follows:

  • RBDS enables stations to be categorized by program type: rock music, current affairs, news, etc. A list of genres is then available to view. Touch Find, followed by the GENRE.
