Chevrolet Captiva Owners Manual: AM-FM Radio

Radio Data System (RDS)

The RDS feature is available for use only on FM stations that broadcast RDS information. This system relies upon receiving specific information from these stations and only works when the information is available.

While the radio is tuned to an FM-RDS station, the station name or call letters display. In rare cases, a radio station could broadcast incorrect information that causes the radio features to work improperly.

If this happens, contact the radio station.

Finding a Station

BAND: Press to switch between AM or FM.

(Tune): Turn to select radio stations.

  SEEK or  SEEK: Press to go to the previous or to the next station.

To scan stations, press and hold either button for a few seconds until a beep sounds. The radio goes to a station, plays for a few seconds, then goes to the next station. Press either button again to stop scanning.

The radio only seeks and scans stations with a strong signal that are in the selected band.

Storing a Radio Station as a Favorite

FAV (Favorites): A maximum of 36 stations can be stored as favorites using the six softkeys below the radio station frequency tabs and by using the radio FAV button. Press FAV to go through up to six pages of favorites, each having six favorite stations available per page.
