About this unit

This product complies with the EMC

Directives (89/336/EEC, 92/31/EEC) and

CE Marking Directive (93/68/EEC).

The tuner frequencies on this unit are allocated for use in Western Europe, Asia, the Middle East, Africa and Oceania. Use in other areas may result in improper reception. The RDS function operates only in areas with FM stations broadcasting RDS signals.

Protect this product from moisture.

If the battery is disconnected or discharged, the preset memory will be erased and must be reprogrammed.

In case of trouble

Should this product fail to operate properly, contact your dealer or nearest authorized Pioneer Service Station.

About this manual

This unit features a number of sophisticated functions ensuring superior reception and operation. All the functions have been designed for the easiest possible use, but many are not selfexplanatory. This operation manual will help you benefit fully from this product’s potential and to maximize your listening enjoyment.

We recommend that you familiarize yourself with the functions and their operation by reading through the manual before you begin using this unit. It is especially important that you read and observe precautions on this page and in other sections.

This manual explains head unit operation. You can perform the same operations with the steering remote control (sold separately).

Protecting your unit from theft

The front panel can be detached from the head unit and stored in the protective case provided to discourage theft.

If the front panel is not detached from the head unit within five seconds of turning off the ignition, a warning tone will sound.

You can turn off the warning tone. See

Switching the warning tone on page 35.

Important

Never use force or grip the display and the buttons tightly when removing or attaching.

Avoid subjecting the front panel to excessive shocks.

Keep the front panel out of direct sunlight and high temperatures.

Precautions

The Pioneer CarStereo-Pass is for use only in Germany.

Keep this manual handy as a reference for operating procedures and precautions.

Always keep the volume low enough so you can hear sounds outside of the car.

Switching the RDS display

When you tune in a RDS station its program service name is displayed. If you want to know the frequency you can.

Press DISPLAY.

Press DISPLAY repeatedly to switch between the following settings:

Program service name—PTY information— Frequency

PTY (program type ID code) information is listed on page 17.

PTY information and the frequency of the current station appears on the display for eight seconds.

If a PTY code of zero is received from a station, NONE is displayed. This indicates that the station has not defined its program contents.

If the signal is too weak for this unit to pick up the PTY code, NO PTY is displayed.

Selecting alternative frequencies

If you are listening to a broadcast and the reception becomes weak or there are other problems, the unit will automatically search for a different station in the same network which is broadcasting a stronger signal.

• AF is on as a default.

1 Press FUNCTION to select AF.

Press FUNCTION until AF appears in the display.

2 Press 5 to turn AF on.

Press 5 and AF :ON is displayed.

3 Press to turn AF off.

Press ∞ and AF :OFF is displayed.

Notes

Only RDS stations are tuned in during seek tuning or BSM when AF is on.

When you recall a preset station, the tuner may update the preset station with a new frequency from the station’s AF list. (This is only available when using presets on the F1 or F2 band.) No preset number appears on the display if the RDS data for the station received differs from that for the originally stored station.

Sound may be temporarily interrupted by another program during a AF frequency search.

When the tuner is tuned to a non-RDS station the AF indicator flashes.

AF can be switched on or off independently for each FM band.

Using PI seek

If the unit fails to find a suitable alternative frequency, or if you are listening to a broadcast and the reception becomes weak, the unit will automatically search for a different station with the same programming. During the search, PI SEEK is displayed and the output is muted. The muting is discontinued after completion of the PI seek, whether or not a different station is found.

14 En

Section

RDS 04

Using auto PI seek for preset stations

When present stations cannot be recalled, as when travelling long distances, the unit can be set to perform PI seek during preset recall.

• The default setting for auto PI seek is off. See

Switching auto PI seek on page 34.

Limiting stations to regional programming

When AF is used to automatically retune frequencies, the regional function limits the selection to stations broadcasting regional programs.

1 Press FUNCTION to select REG.

Press FUNCTION until REG appears in the display.

2Press 5 to turn the regional function on.

Press 5 and REG :ON is displayed.

3Press to turn the regional function off.

Press ∞ and REG :OFF is displayed.

Notes

Regional programming and regional networks are organized differently depending on the country (i.e., they may change according to the hour, state or broadcast area).

The preset number may disappear on the display if the tuner tunes in a regional station which differs from the originally set station.

REG can be turned on or off independently for each FM band.

Receiving traffic announcements

TA (traffic announcement standby) lets you

English

 

receive traffic announcements automatically,

 

no matter what source you are listening to. TA

 

can be activated for both a TP station (a station

 

that broadcasts traffic information) or an

 

enhanced other network’s TP station (a station

 

carrying information which cross-references TP

Español

stations).

announcements.

 

• To turn traffic announcements standby off,

 

press TA again.

Notes

You can also turn the TA function on or off by pressing FUNCTION.

The system switches back to the original source following traffic announcement reception.

TA can be activated from sources other than the tuner if the tuner was last set to the FM band but not if it was last set to the MW/LW band.

If the tuner was last set to FM, turning on TA lets you operate other tuning functions while listening to sources other than the tuner.

Only TP and enhanced other network’s TP stations are tuned in during seek tuning or BSM when TA is on.

Responding to the TP alarm

When a TP or enhanced other network’s TP station is lost due to a weak signal the TP indicator is extinguished and a series of short beeps, about five seconds long, sound to remind you to select another TP or enhanced other network‘s TP station.

When listening to the tuner, tune in another TP or enhanced other network’s TP station.

• When listening to sources other than the tuner the unit will automatically seek out a TP station with the strongest signal after a 10or 30-second delay. The delay is 10 seconds if TA is on and 30 seconds if TA and AF are on.

Using PTY functions

You can tune in a station by using PTY information.

Using news program interruption

When a news program is broadcast from a PTY code news station the unit can switch from any station to the news broadcast station. When the news program ends, reception of the previous program resumes.

Press TA and hold to turn on news program interruption.

Press TA until NEWS appears in the display.

• To turn off news program interruption, press TA and hold until NEWS disappears from the display.

Note

You can also turn on or off news program interruption by pressing FUNCTION.

Receiving PTY alarm broadcasts

PTY alarm is a special PTY code for announcements regarding emergencies such as natural disasters. When the tuner receives the radio alarm code, ALARM appears on the display and the volume adjusts to the TA volume. When the station stops broadcasting the emergency announcement, the system returns to the previous source.

• An emergency announcement can be cancelled by pressing TA.
