Glossary
AF – Alternative frequency
The range of FM stations is limited.
For this reason, FM programmes
are distributed to different frequencies. The AF RDS service
sends these frequencies to the
tuner. If the reception deteriorates because the vehicle leaves
the reception area of a frequency,
the tuner can automatically change
to the best receivable frequency.
DEQmaxEx – Digital parametric
equalizer with variable filter
quality
This function allows for a maximum of exact frequency optimisation, so that the sound spectrum
can be adjusted to the vehicle or
your individual taste.
EON – Enhanced Other Network
In case of a traffic announcement
(TA), the device switches from a
non-traffic information station to
a traffic information station of the
same broadcasting network (e.g.
from NDR 3 to NDR 2). After the
traffic announcement, the system
switches back to the previously
heard programme.
Quality factor Q
It determines the filter quality of
the equalizer, i.e. the edge steepness and filter bandwidth, dependent upon the characteristic
frequency.
ID3 tags
ID3 tags contain additional information for MP3 files (e.g. artist,
title, album, genre, year).
Mass storage device
Format for storage media that can
permanently store large amounts
of data, such as USB removable
storage devices (USB stick or USB
hard disk).
MMC/SD card (Multimedia Card/
Secure Digital Card)
MMC/SD cards are memory card
formats that can be inserted in
card slot D of the device. The device can play MP3 and WMA files
stored on the memory cards.
MP3, WMA
MP3 and WMA are audio data formats that allow for high compression with little loss in quality.
127
ENGLISH
Glossary
Glossary
Playlist
Playback list for MP3 or WMA files
In playlists, you determine the order in which certain titles should
be played. They are created with
an MP3 manager, such as WinAmp
or Windows Media Player.
PTY – Program Type
The device searches only for stations with preselectable programme content (e.g. news, rock, pop,
sports, etc.)
The device automatically switches
through emergency and disaster
announcements (PTY 31).
RDS – Radio Data System
RDS is a service of the radio stations. Besides the conventional
music and voice contributions,
additional information is broadcast in the form of encrypted digital signals which can be analysed
by the device.
Note:
The RDS services are not supported by all radio stations!
REG – Regional
Activating the regional service
(REG ON) prevents switching
over to a frequency with better
reception of the adjacent regional
programme. This allows for continuously a regional programme
even in peripheral regions.
128
The disadvantage is that the station may not be received without
interferences.
Root directory
Main directory of a data carrier.
The root directory contains all
other directories.
Subwoofer, Subout
Separate low-bass loudspeaker.
The device has a Subout preamplifier output. You can connect
either an active subwoofer or a
separate power amplifier with
subwoofer.
TA – Traffic Announcement
The device switches traffic announcements through, even if you
are currently listening to other
sources (e.g. CD, AUX) or the radio is muted.
TMC – Traffic Message Channel
RDS data service for area-based
traffic announcements. Digital
traffic information data channel
with continuously updated data
about the traffic situation. TMC
receivers allow for a selection of
the data flow with respect to direction of travel, area or type of
street. With a push of a button,
you have access to the most current tailor-made information at all
times.
Glossary
ENGLISH
Your device has a TMC output,
