What would you like to know ??

Do you want more photos, ebay link ??

Rear neoprene full back covers, had to cut 2 slits one for the seat warmer cable and one for the seat brace as it wouldnt wrap around. Best thing is it has a zip for the centre armrest so it can fold out.

Template must have been made off a limited ??

They also make front seat covers but we dont need them, the ferals woops I mean my lovely 2 twin daughters destined to sit in the back.

Us Aussies are not lucky enough to have DAB enabled so Customtronix to the rescue. The aerial is a fakra female and so is the Jeep connector and I forgot the adapter. Its ordered now so will have DAB by the end of the week.

I could have got rid of my RAX jailbreak and rolled back then upgraded to 14.25 and its 50/50 as to whether the DAB appears. Just decided it was easier to get the DAB enabler and keep my being abke to change address on the move.

There is a thread under WK2 2011 Export.

Australian 2014 GC with DAB

Re: What did you do to your WK2 today?

How much was the Customtronix portion of the upgrade Chocco? I gather you had RAX Bronze tweaked to include the DAB function? Like you, there's no way I could swap address on the go for DAB.

Cheers,
Steve

Including delivery of the antenna 130 euro/$200 Aus or you can just get the software i think it was 70 euro and get your own aerial here in oz.

Changed out my cabin air filter. I think I waited a little too long this time.

You're one ahead of me. I'm horrible with abbreviations. I not only don't know what a "DAB", OR a, "DAB Enabler" is. I don't know what "the Ether" is either! I get the 5 minute part though.

Lol, I was just as bad as the poster.
DAB = Aussie XM/Sirius (best I can tell; couldn't find an acronym if it exists)
DAB Enabler = XM/Sirius receiver & antenna that plugs into the radio.
The Ether = the world wide web (hence the signal transmission protocol name, "Ethernet").

Re: What did you do to your WK2 today?

Close, DAB is a terrestrial radio broadcast like AM and FM radio but it is digital instead of analogue.
Our radios already have the receiver built in to them, they just need the software changed to allow access to the DAB menu and an antenna. The DAB enabler changes the software to allow access.
