EON (Enhanced Other Networks)
When EON data is received, the EON indicator lights and the
TA and AF functions are expanded as follows.
TA : Traffic information from the current and other network
stations can be received.
AF : The frequency list of preset RDS stations is updated by
EON data.
EON enables the radio to make fuller use of RDS information.
It constantly updates the AF list of preset stations, including
that currently tuned in to. For example, if you preset a station far from home, you will later be able to receive the same
station at an alternative frequency, or any other station serving the same program. EON also keeps track of locally available TP stations for quick reception.
Emergency Announcement
Reception
When an emergency announcement is broadcast, the unit is
automatically switched to receiving that broadcast. If this
happens in a mode other than radio mode (tape mode, CD
Changer mode) or in Muting in TA mode, "ALARM" blinks on
