Hello all,
This being my first post I hope I am doing it correctly. My question is two part. We have a 2006 V70 T2.5 with a HU650 radio. First does it have a security code? (do all of the HU series have one) and secondly what does the "TP" in the display mean? It is accessed thru the "menu" (do I have that right?) or is it called source button. By pushing it the menu's open up What ever that knob is called it is found there. I just can't think of the navigation path to get to the "TP" on-off option. The "TP" sometimes shows a "radar" like symbol just after it in the display. (((( Like this but from small to big lines. "TP" is smaller than the other text. It only works on the CD and FM settings I believe. I can't find anything in the manual about this setting or on the internet. The HU-650 has a VERY limited menu. The "mid" control is useful I guess. I am looking forward to a answer with a feeling of pending embarrassment as I am sure it is very obvious what it is. All I come up with is "tape" but of course no tape player.

My apologies if this is confusing ...

It appears to be some sort of search mode for the RBDS functionality. See the RBDS section on page 185 in your manual.

Edit: OH, it seems to mean there's traffic info available. In my 2001 manual for the older stereos, it says this:

Quote »
Traffic information (TP) -HU- 803 only
This feature may not be apply in your area and only functions with FM broadcasts. (See previous page)
Push the "TP" button for traffic information from RDS stations. "TP" is displayed when the function is connected.

When the unit is in Cassette or CD mode, the FM radio function will seek in the background for a station with a strong signal broadcasting traffic information. If a cassette or CD are playing when the radio receives a traffic bulletin, that function is interrupted and the bulletin is broadcast with the volume pre-selected for traffic information.

When the bulletin is finished the unit immedi-ately returns to the previously set volume and continues playing the cassette or CD.

Traffic information can only be heard when is displayed.
If only TP is displayed, this indicates that no traffic information is being received at the time.
If you do not wish to listen to an ongoing traffic bulletin, press the "TP" button. The TP function will remain active and the radio will continue to monitor traffic information.
To turn the TP function off, press the TP button. TP is no longer shown in the display.
