    New radio station titles

    Has anyone else noticed over the past few days that the standard FM radio system in 206's and 307's have some new station titles?

    From day 1 my Pug has always had 2Day FM and Triple M (in Sydney) which lead me to think that Peugot Australia must have done some deal with AusStereo (the company that owns these 2 stations), but over the last few days I have noticed that Nova, The Edge, WS FM and Mix now have titles (seems funny that Triple J is yet to have one).

    What amazes me is how these got to my car? I have not had a service for some time and I highly doubt all these stations have suddenly upgraded to RDS. Does anyone know how this was done?

    Also I have noticed that the new titles only appear when you have tuned into the station but don't appear in 6 station menu (but the old 2 do). Why is this?

    Thanks for this link, but if you read the post in full you'll note that all these new stations have just appeared in the last few days and when the pugs RDS option is on it'll tell you that these stations are not transmitting RDS info.

    They are only sending Station Id's so the Pug (which uses a european deck) doesn't get all the usual RDS info - hence it doen't think it's getting it (which it's not - if that makes sense).

    Some "nanny" decided that Australian drivers couldn't concentrate on driving if other information would "pop-up" in front of them. (Germans must be far suprior multitaskers .. they have full RDS in many places including traffic reports).
