HD Radio

What is HD Radio™ Technology and how does it work?

HD Radio™ Technology is the digital evolution of analog AM/FM radio. Your radio product has a special receiver which allows it to receive digital broadcasts (where available) in addition to the analog broadcasts it already receives. Digital

broadcasts have better sound quality than analog broadcasts as digital broadcasts provide free, crystal clear audio. For more information, and a guide to available radio stations and programming, please visit www.hdradio.com.

Benefits of HD Radio™ Technology (Information)

The song title, artist name, album name and genre will appear on the screen when available by the radio station. (Multicast)

On the FM radio frequency most digital stations have “multiple” or supplemental programs on each FM station.

(image icon is not illuminated).

image

- Once an analog broadcast is received when HD1 is selected from the Favorite channels, it is switched to automatically. If the radio reception conditions are poor, or HD is off,

image

switching to broadcasts is not possible.

image

- When an HD specialty channel (HD2 to HD8) is selected from the Favorite channels, “Signal Lost” is displayed and no audio is output until

is received. If the radio reception conditions are poor, “Signal Lost” continues to be displayed.

- If the image icon is not illuminated, information such as song titles of the

image

station are received, however, the audio output is analog.

iTunes Tagging (for Apple devices with USB use only)

2. Connect the device via the vehicle's USB. Any stored tag(s) will be sent automatically to the connected device.

3. Once at home or after parking the vehicle safely, log onto the iTunes Store with your device. Your previously tagged song(s) can now be easily purchased.

NOTE

image

- Both AM and FM can be used.

- Because iTunes tagging only supports purchases from the iTunes Store, direct downloading of music from the vehicle's audio unit is not possible.

- If the available memory for the connected device is insufficient, the tag is not sent.

- If an error occurs while the tag is being sent, reconnect the device.
