Default Missing RDS?

Hi,
I have the Sony BT3600u headunit in my Swift LDI.

I read that supposedly this unit has inbuilt RDS. Which means, it should be able to show me the FM channel names automatically, but this doesn't happen.

Anybody knows what I can do to fix that, including perhaps an available firmware fix?

Thanks,
Saurabh.

i have a sony dsx-s100 with rds. its working fine. Did you try DSPL button.
Also i think 2 line display shows the radio station name in RDS.

Do the stations broadcast this information? If it doesn't receive any extra information on RDS, it wouldn't display anything.

I am at Noida and travel between Gurgaon and Noida. At least in Gurgaon, my relative's Skoda Fabia shows FM channel names, so I guess we can assume that the RDS has some info being transmitted.
