INTRODUCTION
ADVICE
Fiat Punto sound system, fitted with CD player (radio
with Compact Disc player) has been designed in
accordance with the special features of the passenger
compartment, with a personalised design that blends
with the style of the dashboard. The sound system
cannot be adapted to other vehicles and for this
reason it cannot be removed.
You are advised to learn how to use the various radio
functions (e.g.: storing stations) before starting to
drive.
Reception conditions
The radio is installed in a user-friendly position for the
driver and passenger and the graphics on the front
panel make location of the controls quick, facilitating
use.
Reception conditions change constantly when driving.
Reception may be disturbed by the presence of
mountains, buildings or bridges particularly when far
away from the station being listened to.
In the following pages you will find the instructions for
use, which you are advised to read through carefully.
IMPORTANT When receiving traffic information, the
volume may be higher than normal.
WARNING
2
Road safety
Too high a volume when driving can put the driver’s life at risk and that of other
people. Therefore the volume should always be adjusted in such a way that it is
always possible to hear the noises of the surrounding environment (e.g.: horns,
ambulance, police sirens, etc.).

Care and maintenance
The radio structure ensures long operation with no
need for particular maintenance. In the event of a fault,
contact a Fiat Dealership.
To clean the front panel only use a soft, antistatic
cloth. Cleaning and polishing products might spoil the
surface.
Compact Disc
Remember that dirt, marks or distortion on Compact
Disc can cause skipping. For top performance
conditions, we give the following advice:
❒ Only use Compact Discs which have the following
brand:
❒ After use, put Compact Discs back in their
container, to avoid marks or scratches that may
cause skipping when playing;
❒ Do not expose Compact Discs to direct sunlight,
high temperatures or damp for prolonged lengths of
time to prevent them from bending;
❒ Do not stick labels or write on the recorded
surface of Compact Discs with pens or pencils.
To remove a Compact Disc from its container, press
the centre and raise the disc carefully, holding it by the
outer circumference.
Always hold Compact Discs by the outer
circumference. Never touch the surface.
To remove fingerprints and dust, use a soft cloth
starting from the centre of the Compact Disc
outwards.
Do not use highly scratched, cracked, or distorted
discs, etc. The use of these discs will involve
malfunctioning or damage to the player.
❒ Carefully clean all Compact Discs of fingerprints and
dust using a soft cloth. Support Compact Discs from
the outer circumference and clean from the centre
outwards;
To obtain the best sound quality, use original CD
supports. Correct operation is not ensured if not
correctly written CD- R/ RW supports and/or with
capacity higher than 650 MB are used.
❒ Never use chemical products for cleaning (e.g. spray
cans, antistatic or thinners) as they might damage
the surface of Compact Discs;

IMPORTANT Do not use the protective sheets for
CD in commerce or discs with stabilisers, etc. as they
might get stuck in the internal mechanism and damage
the disc.
IMPORTANT Should copy-protected CDs be used,
then, few seconds may be required before the system
starts to play them. Moreover, due to the proliferation
of always new and different protection methods, it is
not guaranteed that the CD player can play whatever
protected disc. Copy protection is often indicated on
the CD cover in small letters or hard to read
characters. Usually it is indicated by writings like:
“COPY CONTROL”, “COPY PROTECTED”, “THIS
CD CANNOT BE PLAYED ON A PC/MAC”, or it is
identified by symbols like:
4
Protected discs (and their cover) very often are not
marked with the audio CD identification symbol:
New discs may be rough around the edges. When
these discs are used, the player might not work or the
sound might skip. To remove the roughness from the
edge of the disc use a ball-point pen, etc.

Listening to stored stations
Proceed as follows:
❒ select the required frequency band: FM, MW, LW
(on certain versions only);
❒ briefly press one of the six station storage buttons.
The display will show the number that corresponds to
the button.
In bands FM1, FM2 and FMT, if reception is poor and
the AF alternative frequency search function is active,
the station with the strongest signal that is
broadcasting the same programme will be sought
automatically.
AF function (alternative frequency search)
Within the RDS system the radio can work in two
different modes:
❒ “AF ON”: alternative frequency search on (the
display shows “AF”);
❒ “AF OFF”: alternative frequency search off.
When the signal of the RDS station tuned weakens,
the following two cases may occur:
❒ with “AF ON” the RDS system activates automatic
tuning of the optimum frequency of the station
chosen, with the stations enabled, therefore the
radio is automatically tuned to the station with the
strongest signal that is broadcasting the same
programme. During the journey it will thus be
possible to continue listening to the station chosen
without having to change the frequency when
changing area. Of course, the station being listened
to must be receivable in the area the car is crossing.
❒ With “AF OFF” the radio will not tune the
strongest station automatically and it will have to be
found manually using the tuner buttons.
To turn the AF function on/off, keep button 1 (AF-TA)
pressed until hearing the beep. The name RDS (if
available) stays on the display and if the AF function
has been turned on the symbol “AF” is shown.
If the radio is working in the AM band, when button 1
(AF-TA) is pressed, it passes to the FM1 band on the
last station selected.
