Does anyone besides Blaupunkt support RDS? I found one post on here that said Alpine did but I can't find anything about it on their site. I would like to have RDS, MP3 and WMA. The post also said RDS was worthless in the US but it seems to work great in the Dallas area. Most radio stations I listen to broadcast the station, artist and song title

Yeah, RDS is actually quite nice to a certain degree...I know for sure that Pioneer and Kenwood also have units supporting it, but they aren't cheap.

Any idea which models or where to find out? I can't find anything about it on their websites. Thanks, Joel

I just got an email back from Pioneer that says they don't support RDS currently.

Then I suppose it was their older units that did...my DEX-P1R does...

For specific Kenwood models, you might want to grab a Crutchfield magazine or just check their website www.crutchfield.com The mp925 is the only model I can think of at the moment...

That one has it but is discontinued. I searched Crutchfield for RDS and didn't come up with anything that wasn't discontinued.

I suppose it has become an outdated technology...

Is there something out that has replaced it? I would think that anyone that knew about it would want it... Or am I the only one that likes it?

Yeah, OEM headunits still have it...I almost never listen to FM...I'm usually listening to XM which already displays the name and artist of every song...

Does the KDC-X817 handle MP3 and WMA? Several Blaupunkt models have RDS and MP3 but no WMA. I read that RDS was actually fairly new but it seems that Kenwood and Pioneer have discontinued it.
