      • Unfinalized CD-Rs, CD-RWs, DVD-Rs (DVD-Recordable) and DVD-RWs (DVD-ReWritable) cannot be played.

      • CD-Rs, CD-RWs, DVD-Rs (DVD-Recordable) and DVD-RWs (DVD-ReWritable) are more easily affected by a hot and humid environment than discs used for normal audio CDs. For this reason, some CD-Rs, CD-RWs, DVD-Rs (DVD-Recordable) and DVD-RWs (DVD-ReWritable) may not be played.

      • If there are fingerprints or scratches on a disc, the disc may not be played or the disc may skip.

      • Some CD-Rs, CD-RWs, DVD-Rs (DVD-Recordable) and DVD-RWs (DVD-ReWritable) may deteriorate if they are left in the cabin for a long time.

      • Keep CD-Rs, CD-RWs, DVD-Rs (DVD-Recordable) and DVD-RWs (DVD-ReWritable) in an opaque case.

      • SECAM color television standard discs cannot be played.

      • DualDiscs that mate DVD recorded material on one side with CD digital audio material on the other cannot be played.

      • Keep discs away from dirt. Be careful not to damage the discs or leave fingerprints on them.

      • Hold discs by the outer edge and center hole with the label side up.

      • Leaving a disc exposed halfway out of the slot for a long time after pressing the disc eject button may cause deformation of the disc, making the disc unusable.

      • If disc has adhesive tape, stickers, disc labels or any traces of such labels attached, the disc may not be ejected or player malfunctions may result.

      • Keep discs away from direct sunlight. (Exposure to direct sunlight may cause deformation of the disc, making the disc unusable.)

      • Do not use odd-shaped discs because these may cause player malfunctions.

      • Do not use discs whose recording portion is transparent or translucent because they may not be inserted, ejected or played normally.

      • Use only 4.7 in. (12 cm) discs.

      • Do not use 3 in. (8 cm) discs either with or without adaptors.

      Tech Tips


      • When it is cold or raining, if the windows fog up, mist and condensation may form in the player. In such cases, the disc may skip or stop in the middle of play. Ventilate or dehumidify the cabin for a while before using the player.

      • The disc may skip if the player experiences strong vibrations when the vehicle is driven on rough roads or similar uneven surfaces.

  7. RADIO DESCRIPTION


    1. Radio frequency band


      1. Radio broadcasts use the radio frequency bands shown in the table below.

        B0066BDE08
    2. Service area


      1. B0066M1C06
        *a FM (Stereo)
        *b FM (Monaural)
        *c AM

        The service areas of AM and FM broadcasts are vastly different. Sometimes an AM broadcast can be received very clearly but an FM stereo broadcast cannot. FM stereo has the smallest service area, and is prone to pick up static and other types of interference such as noise.

    3. Radio reception problems

      Tech Tips

      In addition to static, other problems such as "phasing", "multipath" and "fade out" exist. These problems are not caused by electrical noise, but by the radio signal propagation method itself.


      1. B0066D7C06
        *a Phasing
        *b Ionosphere

        Phasing

        AM broadcasts are susceptible to electrical interference and another kind of interference called phasing. Occurring only at night, phasing is the interference created when a vehicle receives 2 radio wave signals from the same transmitter. One signal is reflected off the ionosphere and the other signal is received directly from the transmitter.

      2. B0067JKC06
        *a Multipath

        Multipath

        Multipath is a type of interference created when a vehicle receives 2 radio wave signals from the same transmitter. One signal is reflected off buildings or mountains and the other signal is received directly from the transmitter.

      3. B00659FC05
        *a Fade Out

        Fade out

        Fade out is caused by objects (buildings, mountains and other large obstructions) that deflect part of a signal, resulting in a weaker signal when the object is between the transmitter and vehicle. High frequency radio waves, such as FM broadcasts, are easily deflected by obstructions. Low frequency radio waves, such as AM broadcasts, are less likely to be deflected.

    4. Noise problem

      Technicians must have a clear understanding about each customer's noise complaint. Use the following table to diagnose noise problems.

      Radio Frequency Noise Occurrence Condition Presumable Cause
      AM Noise occurs in a specific area Foreign noise
      Noise occurs when listening to an intermittent broadcast An identical program transmitted from multiple towers can cause noise where the signals overlap
      Noise occurs only at night Signal phasing
      FM Noise occurs while driving in a specific area Multipath resulting from a change in FM frequency
  8. DIGITAL AUDIO BROADCAST (DAB) FUNCTION OUTLINE (w/ DAB)


    1. Digital Audio Broadcast (DAB) is the standard for digital radio. Compared to conventional AM/FM broadcasting, DAB enables higher sound quality radio broadcasting with lower noise when reception conditions change. DAB has an FM-Link function that automatically and temporarily changes the radio to the simultaneously broadcasted FM station if the DAB broadcasting reception level falls.

  9. VEHICLE CUSTOMIZATION OUTLINE


    1. Customization of functions can also be performed on on the multi-display screen. Refer to Owner's Manual for further information on customizable items for the audio and visual system.

      Tech Tips


      • Items available for customization via the audio and visual system can also be customized by using the GTS.

      • Some customize parameters displayed on the GTS will be displayed on the vehicle customization screen for the audio and visual system. Users can customize these items.

  10. AUTOMATIC SOUND LEVELIZER (ASL) FUNCTION OUTLINE


    1. The Automatic Sound Levelizer (ASL) function automatically adjusts the audio system volume in order to compensate for increased vehicle noise (vehicle noise tends to increase as vehicle speed increases). The ASL adjusts the volume based upon vehicle speed signals sent from the combination meter assembly.

  11. MOBILE ASSISTANT FUNCTION OUTLINE


    1. With a compatible portable device connected via "Bluetooth", this function allows the system to interface directly for voice recognition functions. The steering pad switch assembly is operated to start the Mobile Assistant function and the function is operated by using voice commands.

      1. Components of the audio and visual system communicate with each other via AVC-LAN communication.

      2. The AVC-LAN uses a twisted pair of wires for its communication lines.

      3. The master unit of the AVC-LAN is the radio receiver assembly.

        Tech Tips


        • The radio receiver assembly has the resistance (60 to 80 Ω) necessary for communication.

        • If a short or open occurs in the AVC-LAN circuit, communication is interrupted and the system will not operate normally.

    3. CAN Communication Outline


      1. The audio and visual system uses CAN communication between the radio receiver assembly and ECUs.

  15. DIAGNOSTIC FUNCTION OUTLINE


    1. The audio and visual system has a diagnostic function (the result is indicated on the master unit).
