Thanks.
How's this?

This could be the answer to you DAB issues, no DAB ANTENNA needed.

Look here, this is a German forum but use google translate to read it.

Looks like they managed to get DAB working with the same DAB splitter on RJ4 radios I also noticed that SOX was involved maybe he can shed some light on this.

Thank's Snuke,

Spec's on it says it helps FM signal too which is a plus.

Re: Australian 2014 GC with DAB

Currently travelling in the GC through QLD, seems like more progress has been made! Has anyone in Oz tried this splitter/amp yet ?

Re: Australian 2014 GC with DAB

I'm waiting for information regarding the matrix of year/month build and firmware version to unfold, then intend to hit up a contact at Rojone to see if I can get a volume deal on the required hardware. No harm in asking...

Cheers,
Steve

Just wanted to review this. Is this link region restricted, meaning I would need to use a VPN to obfuscate, or has it been detected and shut down?

Re: Australian 2014 GC with DAB

Oh... the DAB amplifier / splitter mentioned above is about $180, with a price break to $150 at 10 units. It will plug in at the head unit end using a FAKRA to FAKRA patch cable (info courtesy Ram forum post linked previously).

I'm still trying to work out what type of connector is in the rear quarter without pulling trims. Any clues appreciated... photos even more so.

A decent option could be this:
Axis DAB ON Glass Antenna AM FM Frequency Range Band III 174 240MHz | eBay

However I'm still trying to work out the logic behind some units displaying DAB, and some not. Currently it is "like totally random", to quote the kiddies. I'm wondering if the button is automatically deleted if no carrier signal is detected, perhaps at firmware installation time? There's simply no pattern...

Cheers,
Steve

Re: Australian 2014 GC with DAB

I think it is dependent on whether the dab hardware module is present. When I reboot the dab button disappears, then a few seconds later it pops back again as though the system is going through its boot sequence finding what options are present. Why some 2014 GC's have it and some don't ? ....

How easy is it to remove that trim by the rear window where the antenna connector is ?
