I'm a new owner of V40. Sometimes, when I'm listening to music, that "ALARM!" warning is displayed on the screen, and the music stops, radio switches to a random frequency.

Why does this happen?

Never heard anything like this. Perhaps take photo next time it happens and post it

Only thing I can think of even remotely similar is the City Safety collision alarm - but that's only because it's the only alarm I can think of that sounds whilst driving. It doesn't display anything on the screen or change your radio though...

Its the RDS system on the radio, there is a built in function for emergency broadcasts, however pirate radio stations sometimes use it to force radios to tune to their frequency.
Ok then :-/

any way to get rid of this "feature"?

Got really scared when this happened. All other cards I had sue to have an option in menu to disable this traffic info thingie... is there such an option on V40?
