Table of Contents Audio System, Auxiliary Input Jack Speed-sensitive volume compensation (SVC) − The SVC mode controls the volume based on vehicle speed. The faster you go, the louder the audio volume becomes. As you slow down, the audio volume decreases. Auxiliary Input Jack The SVC has four modes; OFF, LOW, MID, and HIGH. The default setting is MID. Turn the interface dial to the desired setting, and enter your selection by pressing ENTER. 230 The auxiliary input jack is on the disc changer unit. The system will accept auxiliary input from standard audio accessories. Connect a compatible audio unit to the jack, then select it by pressing: CD/AUX button (U.S. RDX model) AUX button (Canadian RDX model) DISC/AUX button (RDX with Technology Package model) ▼ Main Menu ▲ ０６／０６／１６ １９：２７：４７ ３１ＳＴＫ６００ ０２３５ Table of Contents ▼ Main Menu ▲ ０６／０５／１９ １４：４８：０１ ３１ＳＴＫ６００ ０２３６ Radio Reception Radio Frequencies The radio can receive the complete AM and FM bands. Those bands cover these frequencies: Radio stations on the AM band are assigned frequencies at least 10 kHz apart (530, 540, 550). Stations on the FM band are assigned frequencies at least 0.2 MHz apart (87.9, 88.1, 88.3). Stations must use these exact frequencies. It is fairly common for stations to round off the frequency in their advertising, so your radio could display a frequency of 100.9 even though the announcer may identify the station as ‘‘FM101.’’ A radio station’s signal gets weaker as you get farther away from its transmitter. If you are listening to an AM station, you will notice the sound volume becoming weaker, and the station drifting in and out. If you are listening to an FM station, you will see the stereo indicator flickering off and on as the signal weakens. Eventually, the stereo indicator will go off and the sound will fade completely as you get out of range of the station’s signal. Features AM band: 530 to 1,710 kHz FM band: 87.7 to 107.9 MHz Radio Reception How well the radio receives stations is dependent on many factors, such as the distance from the station’s transmitter, nearby large objects, and atmospheric conditions. Driving very near the transmitter of a station that is broadcasting on a frequency close to the frequency of the station you are listening to can also affect your radio’s reception. You may temporarily hear both stations, or hear only the station you are close to.

Radio signals, especially on the FM band, are deflected by large objects such as buildings and hills. Your radio then receives both the direct signal from the station’s transmitter, and the deflected signal. This causes the sound to distort or flutter. This is a main cause of poor radio reception in city driving. 232 Radio reception can be affected by atmospheric conditions such as thunderstorms, high humidity, and even sunspots. You may be able to receive a distant radio station one day and not receive it the next day because of a change in conditions. Electrical interference from passing vehicles and stationary sources (such as garages or parking structures) can cause temporary reception problems.

Play only standard round CDs. Odd-shaped CDs may jam in the drive or cause other problems. Handle your CDs properly to prevent damage and skipping. To clean a CD, use a clean soft cloth. Wipe across the CD from the center to the outside edge. A new CD may be rough on the inner and outer edges. The small plastic pieces causing this roughness can flake off and fall on the recording surface of the CD, causing skipping or other problems. Remove these pieces by rubbing the inner and outer edges with the side of a pencil or pen. Features When recording a CD-R/CD-RW, the recording must be closed for it to be used by the system. Protecting CDs When a CD is not being played, store it in its case to protect it from dust and other contamination. To prevent warpage, keep CDs out of direct sunlight and extreme heat. Handle a CD by its edges; never touch either surface. Do not place stabilizer rings or labels on the CD. These, along with contamination from fingerprints, liquids, and felt-tip pens, can cause the CD to not play properly or possibly jam in the drive. Never try to insert foreign objects in the disc changer. 233 Table of Contents ▲ Main Menu CD Changer Error Messages If you see an error message in the display while playing a CD, find the cause in the chart to the right.

Signal is weaker in these areas. The XM satellites are in orbit over the equator; therefore, objects south of the vehicle may cause satellite reception interruptions. To help compensate for this, ground-based repeaters are placed in major metropolitan areas. SATELLITE Satellite signals are more likely to be blocked by tall buildings and mountains the farther north you travel from the equator. GROUND REPEATER CONTINUED 235 Features Satellite Radio Signals Satellite radio receives signals from two satellites to produce clear, highquality digital reception. It offers many channels in several categories. Along with a large selection of different types of music, satellite radio also allows you to view channel and category selections in the audio display. Table of Contents ▼ Main Menu ▲ ０６／０５／１９ １４：４８：４０ ３１ＳＴＫ６００ ０２４１ Playing the XM Satellite Radio (U.S. Models) Depending on where you drive, you may experience reception problems. Interference can be caused by any of these conditions: Driving on the south side of an east/west mountain road. Driving on the north side of a large commercial truck on an east/west road. Driving in tunnels. Driving on a road beside a vertical wall, steep cliff, or hill to the south of you. Driving on the lower level of a multi-tiered road. Driving on a single lane road alongside dense trees taller than 50 ft. (15 m) to the south of you. There may also be other geographic situations or structures that could affect satellite radio reception. 236 As required by the FCC: Changes or modifications not expressly approved by the party responsible for compliance could void the user’s authority to operate the equipment. Receiving Satellite Radio Service If your XM Radio service has expired or you purchased your vehicle from a previous owner, you can listen to a sampling of the broadcasts available on XM satellite radio. With the ignition switch in the ACCESSORY (I) or the ON (II) position, push the PWR/VOL knob to turn on the audio system, and press the CD/XM button. A variety of music types and styles will play. If you decide to purchase XM satellite radio service, contact XM Radio at www.xmradio.com, or at 1-800-852-9696. You will need to give them your radio I.D. number and your credit card number. To get your radio I.D. number, turn the TUNE knob until ‘‘0’’ appears in the display. Your I.D. will appear in the display. After you’ve registered with XM Radio, keep your audio system in the satellite radio mode while you wait for activation. This should take about 30 minutes. While waiting for activation, make sure your vehicle remains in an open area with good reception. Once your audio system is activated, ‘‘category’’ or ‘‘CH’’ will appear in the display, and you’ll be able to listen to XM Radio broadcasts. XM Radio will continue to send an activation signal to your vehicle for at least 12 hours from the activation request. If the service has not been activated after 36 hours, contact XM Radio.
