FM radio text

Hi - 

I purchased the 2021 Urban cruiser last month and noticed that the FM stations do not show radio text information. I am aware that not all fm stations transmit fm text. 

Any other Urban cruiser owners noticed this? 

I reside in South Africa.

it also depends on the year and what radio it has fitted

  • sandereo1 changed the title to FM radio text

Hi Sir

I am from south africa. It has i believe, the Harman Kardon infotainment system. There is no on/off option anywhere in the settings. Yes, we also know it as RDS.

The Toyota Urban Cruiser currently sold in South Africa, is a rebadged Suzuki Vitara, and isn't available in Europe (Toyota Owners Club is UK based). Presumably the audio system may also be a Suzuki unit.

I do not recognize the radio as it's a new car iirc they are only sold in India and South Africa, its a rebadged Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza

a quick google it looks like a Suzuki Smartplay radio

Good day Sir, I've bought the Suzuki Vitara Brezza this week. It's got the same Infotainment system as yours.
Did you get a way to activate RDS?

Hi

I took my brezza in for it's first service and asked about any software updates to enable the RDS. I was told that there is none and the RDS functionality is not available.

A bit dissapointing, but it seems that the Maruti Suzuki infotainment system software which includes RDS is only for digital broadcasting areas.

Regards

Erwin

Not sure if the Indian market has RDS enabled - RDS is dependent on the radio station transmitting the data (FM only)

looking at the SLDA European manual, the setting are under radio options -

“Alternative Frequency” and “Regional Mode”

P29

Maruti Smartplay

So it looks like there is a difference in firmware depending on the market
