Dension DAB+U DAB, DAB+, DMB-R DAB, DMB-R, DAB + integration over existing USB port in the car. The stations are listed as individual MP3 files and can be played back.

Suitable for the following systems with a USB port:

  • Audi AMI
  • BMW E-Series (with USB)
  • BMW F-Series (with USB, without HDD Navigation)
  • VW / Skoda MDI

The Dension DAB+U connects to a USB-input on the head unit of the car or any other device capable of playing back mp3 files from a USB-drive.

The DAB, DAB+, and DMB-R stations appear on the device as virtual mp3 files, thus the reason for easy operation and wide compatibility. Since the buffer size may be different in each playback device (head unit) the DAB+U has an 'Automatic Buffer Size Assessment'(ABSA) function.

The DAB, DAB+, and DMB-R stations appear on the device as virtual mp3 files, thus the reason for easy operation and wide compatibility. Since the buffer size may be different in each playback device (head unit) the DAB+U has an 'Automatic Buffer Size Assessment'(ABSA) function.

What is ABSA?

The Dension DAB+U device is equipped with an ‘Automatic Buffer Size Assessment’ (ABSA) function. Since the buffer size may be different in each playback device (head unit) the Dension DAB+U device detects the buffering time needed by the playback device to function correctly. Depending upon the playback device (head unit) the buffer time may vary between 15-40 seconds. So it is not possible to have ‘radio like’ station changing with the Dension DAB+U, but we designed the product to be the most versatile possible.

Note

Due to the 'Automatic Buffer Size Assessment' (ABSA) restriction, a buffer must be built between 15-40 seconds after a channel change. During this time no radio playback is possible. With this module, no immediate switch between two channels is possible. DAB external antenna is required (Article 39959).

The DAB+U - USB DAB-Radio Receiver is a very easy to install device since it only has to be connected to a USB port. The only accessory that needs to be installed is the antenna (aerial).

How to install

Plug the DAB antenna (passive or active with external power source) to the Dension DAB+U receiver. Connect the power cable (12V) to the antenna (only if you are using an active aerial). Use the USB ‘A-A’ (Male to Male) cable to connect the DAB device to the Radio. Please turn the ignition ON and check the status indicator LED on the DAB+U hardware.  The steady light means that the DAB+U receives electric power. If the LED does not light up when the device is connected please check the power connection.
