The radio can be operated using voice recognition, the steering wheel keypad or the centre display.
The digital radio app is launched from app view in the centre display.
Digital radio is played back in the same way as other radio bands, such as FM. Besides the option to select playback from Stations, Favourites and Genres, there is also the option to select playback from subchannels and Ensembles. An ensemble is a set of radio channels (a channel group) broadcasting on the same frequency.
In the cases where the radio channel transmits its logotype, it is downloaded and shown beside the station name (download time varies).
Secondary components are usually named subchannels. These are temporary and can contain e.g. translations of the main programme into other languages. Subchannels are indicated with an arrow symbol in the channel list.
