Re: Australian 2014 GC with DAB

Thanks Snuke I will give it a try and send the dealer a slap as well.

This "un selecting" of the "tick" has been a problem from day one and I don't see that they have fixed it in any previous version. Some screens you need to have the engine running some you don't but this Comfort setting doesn't stay selected in any variant.

The DAB I tend to agree with your previous comment on not having the hardware but I would be interested in knowing if someone has got it to work - would be a big free plus feature for once.

Re: Australian 2014 GC with DAB

What is the comfort setting? Under which section?

Someone did get the DAB to work with some extra hardware, but they didn't want to helpful about what or how.

Re: Australian 2014 GC with DAB

The setting is in Settings Auto Comfort see the attached video.

Generally if people aren't helpful with the success they claim on a forum then I doubt the success.

Have you seen post #15 in this thread? There was reference to an SRT owner in Sydney who got DAB wired up. I see you are in Vic but it might help you source some info on the process.

Re: Australian 2014 GC with DAB

Anyone know why some MY14s display the DAB button but others (e.g. mine) don't?

Snuke - Attached is screen shot of the Auto Comfort on screen - in this case I have "ticked" the selection but 5 seconds later it deselects itself.

Re: Australian 2014 GC with DAB

Qpr39 - I looked the company up on google and emailed them and got a reply saying they could do it later in the month. It will be worth driving up to Sydney for.

Re: Australian 2014 GC with DAB

SUCCESS: I started this thread as I had the DAB button but it didnt work in my 2014 GC Laredo. When I read that there was a company in Sydney making it work it seemed that _maybe_ the demod hardware etc is there in the radio but no DAB antenna.

So I decided to drive up to Mt Lofty here in Adelaide where the DAB signal is broadcast figuring that if there's no antenna plugged in at all maybe right next to the antenna the signal wouldbe so strong it didnt matter.

It worked, did the scan and found many stations - select one and it works perfectly until you drive ...... a km or so down the road....

So, now the question is what is the easiest way to add a DAB antenna.....

Re: Australian 2014 GC with DAB

Nice find.

I recall that there might be an antenna junction in the left rear quarter boot trim just above the wheel. It is a "one into two" device, but only one of the two ports is used. Check it out...

Cheers,
Steve

Re: Australian 2014 GC with DAB

great, will do that will certainly be easier than getting to the antenna sockets on the radio itself !

Re: Australian 2014 GC with DAB

Do the US Grands have an antenna in the rear side glass?
