I recently upgraded from my factory HU to the Clarion NZ500. So far, I love it. One thing I noticed, however, is that it doesn't have built-in RDS. Is there some tweak or hack to get RDS to display? I know the stations in Houston have it so that won't be an issue.
Generally, RDS is a built-in feature of certain HU's - either the HU has it or it does not, and there doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason why (I've seen really inexpensive HU's with it (under $100) and over $1500 HU's without it).
Anyway, the NZ500 does not have it from what I can tell.
There MIGHT be a hack to get it to display, but it would certainly void any warranty to incorporate it, but I don't know of one either.
Hope This Helps!!!
Anyone else have suggestions?

Since you are in Houston, I would think a lot of those radio stations broadcast HD Radio. A feature of HD radio is that you get the song information with it like RDS gives. You could try adding the Clarion THD-400 HD Radio tuner and see if that works.
Because my name is on the business, I work hard to make sure you get the best possible shopping experience. I look forward to hearing your comments .
