How do you use the Radio Data System with the radio?

Your car’s radio is equipped to access the Radio Data System (RDS), which lets you do a number of different things. You can search for specific RDS-enabled stations, sort your music options by genre and more. Here’s how to work it:

  1. Press the Menu button until you see RDS (On/Off).

  2. Press the Seek/Track button to turn RDS on if it’s off.

Once RDS is activated, you can scroll through systems by category. You’ll also see information about the station (the station name and other data), rather than just the frequency on the radio display in your car.
