Gracenote

Gracenote technology embedded into the radio helps manage and navigate the USB device music collection. When a USB device is connected to the radio, Gracenote identifies the music collection and delivers the correct album, artist name, genres, and cover art on the screen. If information is missing, Gracenote will fill it in.

Searching Music Library Using Voice Recognition

Voice Recognition:

Gracenote improves music search and navigation by identifying bands, artists, and albums names that may be hard to pronounce, irregular spellings, and nicknames.

For example, Gracenote helps the system understand artist names like INXS or Mötley Crüe. It also allows the use of names like: The Boss, G.N.R, The Fab Four, and thousands of other famous artist nicknames as voice commands to access music.

Normalization

: Normalization helps to improve the voice recognition accuracy for titles that sound similar.

It also helps group long lists of genres into 10 common genres.

For example, there may be multiple rock genres in the media library; normalization will group all those into one rock Genre. Normalization default is off.

To turn Normalization on:

To turn Normalization on: 1. Press CONFIG or Config on the Home Page.

2. Press Radio Settings, then press Gracenote Options.

3. Press Normalization to turn on or off.

Cover Art:

The Gracenote embedded database contains cover art or album art information for the music on the USB device. If the music is recognized by Gracenote and does have cover art, Gracenote will use the cover art found in the embedded database and display it on the radio. User predefined cover art will always be used first. If no cover art is found Gracenote will use generic Genre graphics or images of artists.

More Like This

The Gracenote database contains attributes for Music, such as genre, era of music, region, artist type, mood, etc. Use this to create a playlist of up to 30 songs "more like" currently listened to song. This playlist will be stored in the Playlist Menu when the device is reconnected. If songs are removed from the device, the system will simply skip over those songs and play the next available song.

Use the touch screen or voice recognition to create a More Like This Playlist.

Gracenote Indexing

While Gracenote is indexing, infotainment features are available including selecting music from the menu. Voice recognition music will not be available until the radio has completed indexing the device.

Devices with more music may take longer to index. The device will index when plugged into the radio for the first time. When Indexing is removed from the screen, the radio is ready to support music search.

The radio will index and store two devices with up to 10,000 songs on each device.
