Hopefully, it does not need to be enabled by software.

The photo shows the connections under the sharkfin antenna:
Mozzie, is yours an MY15?

Do you have a DAB button displayed? I seem to remember some MY14 owners saying it appeared after a radio update but didn't tune to any stations. I've had the latest uConnect update but never seen a DAB button???

Re: Australian 2014 GC with DAB

The DAB button appeared with uConnect update 14.25 (latest for MY14).

Some people have tuned in and some have tuned when an antenna is added. We need to determine the variables required.

- Is the DAB hardware on all 8.4 radio models

- Is the DAB antenna wired from radio to the antenna

- does it need to be activated in software

Re: Australian 2014 GC with DAB

My build date is approx march 2013, hardware is there as i have tuned in a dab station. Will need to check mine if the coax goes all the way back to the shark fin as Mozzie's does. I have feeling it should only be a antenna change.

We need to get the my14 antenna part no and then a my15 antenna part no and look up online and compare the two. If it is only a matter of changing the shark fin antenna that would ok by me providing it comes painted already.

My DAB button was there before the 14.25 update.

With you there Bob. Mine's Feb 14 and even though I've had the 14.25 uConnect update I still don't have a DAB button either.

Re: Australian 2014 GC with DAB

I'm in Middle East with the same RJ4 radio and never seen DAB button on the screen. Build July 2014. Will be moving back to Europe soon, so it would be nice to have it.

Re: Australian 2014 GC with DAB

MMM, so look what i found.

Hope this works

Antenna

Item no 8,9 and 10. Item no 7 might be a maybe.

If you go techauthorityonline the connector for the dab coax should be located near the sharkfin antenna with what looks to be like item no 7 going down and under the rear quarter passenger window.

Really need someone with at my15 to check what parts are required and where the antenna goes.

Re: Australian 2014 GC with DAB

So I am trying to make sense of the antenna systems. Looking here:
https://techauthorityonlinedemo.extr...M8EC197962&s=2

There seem to be three separate antenna harnesses:
1. "Antenna AM/FM" which appears to be a single coax.
2. "Antenna Satellite" which is a double coax for DAB and AM/FM.
3. "Antenna Radio" a double coax for satellite radio and cellular.

The location views on te above web site seem to suggest "3." goes to the shark fin. "2." location view is not available :-( and 1. seems to go somewhere to the right side of the vehicle from teh shark fin ?

Can anyone make better sense of this ?

Re: Australian 2014 GC with DAB

If you change the year to 2015 for item no 2 it will show location.
