RDS Radio question

4 posts in this topic

Hi all. I have a weird question.

I installed a RDS radio in my 97 Deville (LOVE IT)

Never thought it was possible til I did it. 

Anyway the display shows the sources.

single cd, cassette, radio, multi disc, Then there is a picture of what looks like a floppy disc.

That is the question. What the heck is the disc for. I got to see it by going into diagnostic mode and it going through its lamp check.

I wondered about it because when it showed the available sources  the last slot was always empty.

I would love to be able to use my satellite radio and my MP3 player with it but have no idea (beside cassette adapter or fm modulator) how it is possible

Don't know much about them...I've never seen one....but there are some GM radios with a MD system....also known as Mini Disc. A failed format.

CD-Rs and MP3 players pretty much killed it.

I bet you nailed it.

Never even heard of one of those.

Thank you very much.

going to have to do some homework to see if that source can be used..... (for another purpose anyway)
