I get the call sign but I have never noticed the name of the singer or song. Maybe that is some new thing they are trying in NY?

there was another thread about this ... looks like some NYC radio stations began rolling out a more informative release of RDS.

it's an RDS function...

some networks use their channel to provide traffic info too (indipendent from TP funct.)...

unfortunately here in italy there are only 3-4 networks that use it....(and SHIIIIT!!!! it scrolls ****ING slowly)...


.......never heardt 'bout DAB???;)

i think it depends on each station, some stations has that feature enabled for car radios and some don't

We have that feature in SoCal and I agree that it only works on some stations. Power106 doesn't have it but KROQ and KIIS has it.

Mine just started doing the same last week. It is pretty damn cooL! It's about time they started it.

It's also kinda funny when you see the artist name chopped up because they can't format it to fit the screen.
