there are 2 ways to look at this..
1. Cd player is dumb
2. The Cd might not have that info on it. Some of mine do, some dont. it depends..



its really not the big of deal.

This is pretty much the truth.

The CD has to have that data already coded on it from the record company. If it does not come with track info than see below.

Does your car come with wireless internet? The only way to get track info on any stereo is to have it downloaded - the same way iTunes or any media player on your computer would get track info.

Even if you have NAV, you might not have internet. Navigation works off of GPS. I guess I am curious as to why the OP asked this question, I assume the Titanium comes with internet, right?

None of them come with the internet, My Ford Touch has the ability to make a mobile hot spot via your phone or a USB modem.

The way Genome and other systems work inside My Ford Touch is, if your phone is paired via bluetooth and, you allow the connection to pass all traffic is, the system will use your data access to pull down the information that is being requested.

So, theoretically, he could pair his mobile and than the stereo could get the data? If that is, the stereo is capable of doing so.

For digital media yes, for CDs I am not sure. I don't own any CDs to even try it out.

Hi, roddy piper -

Like pyroinsa said, the CD may not be embedded with track information, however, I recommend making sure your Gracenote database is turned on.
To do so, select the menu button and go through the following sequence:

SETTINGS > MEDIA PLAYER > GRACENOTE MGMT > ON

Thanks for the tip, pyroinsa. The Titanium is Wi-Fi capable once a hot spot has been established. For more info, check out:

If anyone has additional questions, contact me via PM. :)
