If you’re like most drivers, you probably rely on your car’s navigation system to get you from Point A to Point B. But what if the navigation system failed?
What if the computer inside the car was destroyed or damaged? Thankfully, Hyundai has a solution for you: RDS. RDS stands for “real-time traffic” and it’s a feature found on many Hyundai models. What is RDS and how does it work? Read this blog post to find out.
RDS (Roadside Assistance)
Roadside assistance is a service offered by automakers and their dealers that provides help with car troubles on the side of the road. The Hyundai Tucson has a feature called RDS, which stands for “Ride, Drive, and Specify.” This allows you to call for roadside assistance from the car’s touchscreen, without having to get out of the vehicle. RDS can be used for such things as changing a tire, fixing a flat, or even getting help getting your car started.
What Does RDS Do?
RDS, or Rear-View Camera, is a feature that allows drivers to see what is behind them while driving. It can be used in vehicles with manual or automatic transmissions. When using RDS with an automatic transmission, the vehicle will automatically switch to RDS when the driver presses the gear selector into R (Reverse). With manual transmissions, there is no gear selector position for RDS, and it must be manually selected.
When activated, the camera displays a live image of what is directly in front of the vehicle’s rear window (in a narrow field of view), excluding other vehicles and obstacles. The image can also show objects close to the car – up to about 50 feet away – if they are in focus and within the camera’s range. In lower light conditions or when backlighting occurs behind objects, images may not appear as clear as when viewing from a direct perspective.
How Does RDS Work?
RDS, or “Radio Data System,” is a feature found on some Hyundai Tucson models that helps keep you in touch with your music without having to take your hands off the wheel. With RDS, the car can wirelessly send audio information from the head unit to the speakers, letting you enjoy your music without having to reach for the control knob.
Additionally, RDS allows you to access various music content directly through the car’s stereo system. This includes NPR news and sports programming, as well as weather and traffic updates. You can also select specific songs or albums to play, making it easy to enjoy your favorite tunes while you’re on the go.
Is RDS Necessary On My Hyundai Tucson?
RDS is a feature on many Hyundai cars and trucks that allows drivers to access various functions, such as climate control and the sound system, with the touch of a button. RDS is not necessary on all Hyundai models, but it is available on most of them. If you have one of the more recent Hyundai Tucson models, RDS is a great option to consider because it can make your driving experience much easier.
To use RDS, simply press the “audio” button on your dashboard and select “radio data system.” This will display a list of available stations and menus. You can change the volume, turn on or off the radio, change the station, or even play a song from your music library. RDS also offers several other features that may be useful in your car. For example, you can use RDS to listen to audio directions while driving, hear traffic updates while you’re on your way, or find out when your next appointment is.
If you own a 2014 Hyundai Tucson, then it’s likely that you’ve encountered the RDS (radio data system) issue. In this article, we will discuss what RDS is and what it does on your vehicle. Hopefully, by the end of this article, you will have a better understanding of how to deal with the RDS issue and be able to get back to enjoying your music without any issues.
