Re: Australian 2014 GC with DAB

Pardon my ignorance on this, but when a DAB station is active does it display the info like in the pic below?

If so when I get to Perth and switch to MIX 94.5

I get the info like in this shot.

Mines a Jan 14 Build and Uconnect version : 13.43.7

Re: Australian 2014 GC with DAB

That's optional subchannel data which may be broadcast by a conventional FM station. Looks like DAB, but isn't.

Cheers,
Steve

Not quite sure what your question is here but I listen to DAB radio all the time at home.The FM stations have digital broadcasts as well as broadcasting on the FM frequency. On DAB you will see the name of the station (eg SmoothFM) and the artist and song title but you won't see the a frequency.

Someone with DAB (an MY15) would have to confirm what info is displayed. Mine's a Feb 14 build (uConnect 14.25) and I would love to have DAB.

Re: Australian 2014 GC with DAB

I dont have a 2015 but when I was sitting next to the broadcast antennas so a strong enough signal for it all to work without an antenna the display is just like you describe on the GC also. Song title, and I think the next song along with station name.

Re: Australian 2014 GC with DAB

Mine does not seem to work. I have checked the uconnect site which shows that the RA3/8.4A does not have HD radio but the RA4/8.4AN does have it. I am unsure if this relates to the DAB function as mine is the 8.4A (no navigation).

Re: Australian 2014 GC with DAB

You have a RJ system, not RA. RA is for North Murica, so you can ignore all of that. MY14 RJ4 was not supposed to have DAB at all.

What do you mean it doesn't work ? You can go into DAB screens but picks up no stations ? That's how mine behaves unless I'm <1km from the transmission tower. Which seems to me to mean that either there's no antenna or that it isn't connected up properly. I add the latter as my dealer told me he has looked up the antenna's on their system and said there's no difference between 2015 and 2014 models regarding the antennas. If thats true then maybe the DAB antenna is simply not wired or wired properly .....

Re: Australian 2014 GC with DAB

Mine has Uconnect 8.4N AM/FM/BT/NAV with latest update and never did show DAB
interesting how some show this whilst others don't
Has it got anything to do with how dealers set up radio before delivery?

Re: Australian 2014 GC with DAB

So i removed the passenger side rear panel in the boot area and guess whats there, the twin connector as i found on techauthority a page or so back. Got out my trusty wire and checked each side and sure enough one side worked with dab. Just need to order the antenna and the module now.

Really need a my15 to have a look where the antenna goes. Can someone confirm this maybe.

Re: Australian 2014 GC with DAB

I've got a my15 with working DAB and happen to have the left rear trim off at the moment, if you let me know what to look for I can have a look/take pics mate

Just had a quick look and can see what looks like two black coax cables spltting off from the main harness just behind the lhs seat belt reel and running up the C pillar trim, I'm guessing it runs up to the shark fin. Can't see anything looking like coax going up the D pillar though and I opened the harness.
