Radio Text has been around for a while - I had a Kenwood HU in 2000 that had it (but it would only work if you were within about 10 miles from the transmitter) and then a 2001 Alpine HU where it worked perfectly.
Not missing much IMO, it just scrolls a line of text that says something like "BBC Radio four, question time, John Humphreys asks questions, contact [email protected]". Would look pretty on the satnav screen, I agree.
Don't confuse this in the setup options with the normal RDS text, which is just the station ident (BBC R4).

|richierich||It turned mine off too, glad I am not the only one.|

|Alan||Thanks Juuzi , but this didn't work for me it just switches off the radio|

|Juuzi01||Press Radio Power Button down for 3-5 sec. After that you get Radio's setup open and you can set RDS things on or off.|

|richierich||Even my brothers 3 year old Ford Focus had that, whats the world coming to?|

|Alan||Yes it lends itself well to that, normally a head unit, that has CD text (which the Civic has) would have radio txt, thatís a shame|
|11th July 2006 13:22|
|kan2||ah maybe its not available on the civic, shame really with the sat nav screen thatd be a nice little feature|

here you go:
Along with RDS & EON data, some radio stations are also transmitting further information called radio text. This usually gives information on the programme being transmitted and other useful information, phone numbers etc. When selected, this information is scrolled across the radio's display.
something like that
Ps Radio 1 had it.

|Alan||No it's not a DAB radio, donít get me wrong, the radio text didnít show you which track/song was playing, only the kind off info as above (in my other post), my old car, had a Kenwood head unit, and the SAAB is the standard head unit, (but it is also a Satnav system ) , Iíll have a look around the web and see if I can find something to explain what I mean, a bit better|

|Nadz||sounds as though the car had a DAB radio and I do not think the Civic has one and cannot display text.|
|11th July 2006 12:13|
|kan2||which stations did you get it on in your old car?|
|11th July 2006 12:05|
|Alan||Oh defiantly out and working in the UK, my old car had it and my wifeís car (SAAB) too, but I must admit ,there not much info on there , just like whoís show is on and contact number/e-mail/ txt numbers , sometime you get at bit more.|

I have a EX with the Satnav and wanted to know if you can display Radio text, I know you can get CD/MP3 Text (and this is working fine), but I canít seen to find the radio text? Anyone know/found out how to do this?
Ps I donít mean the RDS fashion that will turn 98.2 into ďRADIO 1Ē. Thatís bit is all working fine.
Thanks in advance
