Addons available for AutoDAB*

External antenna; the standard DAB antenna is unsuitable for use on thermic metallic and heated windscreens. We recommend an external body mount option. You may also want to consider an external antenna if the digital signal is not strong in your area. It is advisable to check stations and signal strength in your area.

DAB Antenna Option

In most cases the internal windscreen mounted aerial supplied as standard will be adequate. However you may be interested in upgrading to one of our externally mounted aerials for optimum performance. Please check the signal coverage in your area to help you decide. Note: The standard internal glass mount aerial will not work on metallised or heated windscreens found in some cars.
