Car radios and terminology - Yes I need help please


Novice Member
Be nice to me please.

I never got in to car radios, boom boxes and what ever, so looking for guidance please.

I bought a new radio for my van the other day as the original died, but I'm very disappointed with the replacement, so want to be a bit sharper on the terminology next time round.

What's the function/system called that displays the the name of the radio station (when on FM), for example HeartFM, Radio 2, ClassicFM.....?

What's the function/system called that automatically tunes to different frequencies when tuned to one station to pick up the best signal (not the auto station search for different radio stations)?

What's the function/system called that automatically mutes the tuned station to give traffic reports?

Is there anything else I should be aware of please?

Thanks guy's
