Comment Re:What could possibly go wrong? (Score 1) 161

RDS here does little much more than tuning me into a station that I am tuned that supports RDS when in the hourly news they talk slightly about traffic. Pretty much useless in my 20-minute daily commute around the city.
If it happens for the times to overlap, and I hear about a traffic jam, by the time I hear it, I am already pretty much in the middle of it.

The normal news in the radio or TV are mind numbing.
They also do not have the wisdom in the radio to including regular updates about traffic to get my interest while driving. Anyway, the technology is making them quickly redundant.
The music is also pretty insipid/bland and horribly commercial, and there is zero incentives to listen to that garbage...

I have RDS in my car now for more than one decade. Though in the previous country I was expat it did not do any good.
The thing with RDS is that is only transmitted in certain frequencies, and you must be listening to radios stations in that frequency for it to work, if I am not wrong.
If I am, I would be thankful if someone knows better.
