RDS OPERATIONS
What you can do with RDS
RDS (Radio Data System) allows FM stations to
send an additional signal along with their regular
programme signals. For example, the stations
send their station names, as well as information
about what type of programme they broadcast,
such as sports or music, etc.
Another advantage of RDS function is called
“Enhanced Other Networks.” By using the
Enhanced Other Networks data sent from a
station, you can tune in to a different station of a
different network broadcasting your favorite
programme or traffic announcement while
listening to another programme or to another
source such as CD.
By receiving the RDS data, this unit can do the
following:
• Tracing the same programme automatically
(Network-Tracking Reception)
• Standby Reception of TA (Traffic
Announcement) or your favorite programme
• PTY (Programme Type) search
• Programme search
• And some other functions
Tracing the same programme
automatically (Network-Tracking
Reception)
When driving in an area where FM reception is
not good, the tuner built in this unit automatically
tunes in to another RDS station, broadcasting the
same programme with stronger signals. So, you
can continue to listen to the same programme in
its finest reception, no matter where you drive.
(See the illustration on page 18.)
Two types of the RDS data are used to make
Network-Tracking Reception work correctly
—PI (Programme Identification) and AF
(Alternative Frequency).
Without receiving these data correctly from the
RDS station you are listening to, NetworkTracking Reception will not operate.
To use Network-Tracking Reception
You can select the different modes of networktracking reception to continue listening to the
same programme in its finest reception.
When shipped from the factory, “AF” is selected.
• AF:
Network-Tracking Reception is
activated with Regionalization set to
“off.”
With this setting, the unit switches to
another station within the same
network when the received signals
from the current station become
weak. (In this mode, the programme
may differ from the one currently
received.)
The AF indicator lights up but the
REG indicator does not.
• AF REG: Network-Tracking Reception is
activated with Regionalization set to
“on.”
With this setting, the unit switches to
another station, within the same
network, broadcasting the same
programme when the received
signals from the current station
become weak.
Both the AF indicator and the REG
indicator light up.
• OFF:

Network-Tracking Reception is
deactivated.
Neither the AF indicator nor the REG
indicator lights up.

Using TA Standby Reception
TA Standby Reception allows the unit to switch
temporarily to Traffic Announcement (TA) from
the current source (another FM station or CD).

7 When the current source is FM, the TP
indicator either lights up or flashes.
• If the TP indicator lights up, TA Standby
Reception is activated.
If a station starts broadcasting a traffic
announcement, “TRAFFIC” appears on the
display, and this unit automatically tunes in to
the station. The volume changes to the
preset TA volume level (see page 17) and the
traffic announcement can be heard.
• If the TP indicator flashes, TA Standby
Reception is not yet activated since the
station being received does not provide the
signals used for TA Standby Reception.
To activate TA Standby Reception, you need
to tune in to another station providing these
signals. Press ¢
or
4 to search
for such a station.
When a station providing these signals is
tuned in, the TP indicator stops flashing and
remains lit. Now TA Standby Reception is
activated.
7 When the current source is other than FM,
the TP indicator lights up.
If a station starts broadcasting a traffic
announcement, “TRAFFIC” appears on the
display, and this unit automatically changes the
source and tunes in to the station.
To deactivate the TA Standby Reception,
press TP PTY again. The TP indicator
disappears.

• If the PTY indicator flashes, PTY Standby
Reception is not yet activated since the
station being received does not provide the
signals used for PTY Standby Reception.
To activate PTY Standby Reception, you
need to tune in to another station providing

What is MP3?
MP3 is an abbreviation of Motion Picture Experts
Group (or MPEG) Audio Layer 3. MP3 is simply a
file format with a data compression ratio of 1:10
(128 Kbps*).
* Bit rate is the average number of bits that one
second of audio data will consume. The unit used is
Kbps. To get a better audio quality, choose a higher
bit rate. The most popular bit rate for encoding is
128 Kbps.
How are MP3 files recorded
and played back?
MP3 “files (tracks)” can be recorded in “folders”
—in PC terminology.
During recording, the files and folders can be
arranged in a way similar to arranging files and
folders of computer data.
“Root” is similar to the root of a tree. Every file
and folder can be linked to and be accessed from
the root.
ENGLISH
MP3 INTRODUCTION
The illustration below shows an example of how
MP3 files are recorded on a CD-R or CD-RW,
how they are played back, and how they are
searched for on this unit.
• For details information about the MP3
discs, refer to “A Guide to MP3/WMA”
(separate volume).
Compatible with ID3 Tag
Extra information data such as album title,
performer name, song title, recording year, music
genre and a brief comment can be stored within
an MP3 file.
This unit can show both ID3v1 (Version 1) and
ID3v2 (Version 2) tags on the display. (See page
25.)
• Some characters cannot be shown correctly.
• If both ID3v1 and ID3v2 are recorded on a
disc, ID3v2 information will be shown.
Notes:
• This unit can read a CD-ROM containing MP3
files. However, if non-MP3 files are recorded
together with MP3 files, this unit will take a longer
time to scan the disc. It may also cause the unit to
malfunction.
• This unit cannot read or play an MP3 file without
the extension code <.mp3>.
• This unit is not compatible with MP3 file encoded
with Layer 1 and Layer 2 formats.
• This unit is not compatible with Playlist**.
** A playlist is a simple text file, used on a PC, which
enables users to make their own playback order
without physically rearranging the files.

MAINTENANCE
Handling discs
When playing a CD-R or CD-RW
This unit has been designed to reproduce CDs,
CD-Rs (Recordable), CD-RWs (Rewritable), and
CD Texts.
• This unit is also compatible with MP3 discs.
How to handle discs
When removing a disc
Center holder
from its case, press down
the center holder of the case
and lift the disc out, holding
it by the edges.
• Always hold the disc by the edges. Do not
touch its recording surface.
When storing a disc into its case, gently insert
the disc around the center holder (with the
printed surface facing up).
• Make sure to store discs into the cases after
use.
To keep discs clean
A dirty disc may not be played
correctly. If a disc does become
dirty, wipe it with a soft cloth in a
straight line from center to edge.
To play new discs
New discs may have some rough
spots around the inner and outer
edges. If such a disc is used, this
unit may reject the disc.
To remove these rough spots, rub
the edges with a pencil or ball-point pen, etc.
Before playing back CD-Rs or CD-RWs, read
their instructions or cautions carefully.
• Use only “finalized” CD-Rs or CD-RWs.
• Some CD-Rs or CD-RWs may not be played
back on this unit because of their disc
characteristics, and for the following reasons:
– Discs are dirty or scratched.
– Moisture condensation on the lens inside the
unit.
– The pickup lens inside the unit is dirty.
• CD-RWs may require a longer readout time
since the reflectance of CD-RWs is lower than
that of regular CDs.
• CD-Rs or CD-RWs are susceptible to high
temperatures or high humidity, so do not leave
them inside your car.
• Do not use following CD-Rs or CD-RWs:
– Discs with stickers, labels, or protective seal
stuck to the surface.
– Discs on which labels can be directly printed
by an ink jet printer.
Using these discs under high temperatures or
high humidity may cause malfunctions or
damage to discs. For example,
– Stickers or labels may shrink and warp a
disc.
– Stickers or labels may be peeled off so discs
cannot be ejected.
– Print on discs may get sticky.
Read instructions or cautions about labels and
printable discs carefully.
Moisture condensation
Moisture may condense on the lens inside the
CD player in the following cases:
• After starting the heater in the car.
• If it becomes very humid inside the car.
Should this occur, the CD player may
malfunction. In this case, eject the disc and leave
the unit turned on for a few hours until the
moisture evaporates.

CAUTIONS:
• Do not insert 8 cm discs (single CDs) into the
loading slot. (Such discs cannot be ejected.)
• Do not insert any disc of unusual shape—like a
heart or flower; otherwise, it will cause a
malfunction.
• Do not expose discs to direct sunlight or any
heat source or place them in a place subject to
high temperature and humidity. Do not leave
them in a car.
• Do not use any solvent (for example,
conventional record cleaner, spray, thinner,
benzine, etc.) to clean discs.
