    Shark Fin DAB + GPS

    I’m going to be installing a shark fin on the roof for better DAB reception for my Kenwood 8020dabs headunit. Is it worth getting a combined DAB and GPS aerial? I use Waze via wireless sapless play. Will a GPS aerial improve the sat nav of will it remain dependent on the iPhone GPS?

    Bowden Cable Recall & DAB Reception

    Had my recall a couple of days ago and noticed the DAB reception has noticeably worsened. Is this my imagination or is there something that's been affected by having the door trim off and whatever's done to correct the door lock problem? TIA

    Connector identification - possibly DAB?

    Hello. The DAB radio on my T6 isn’t picking up stations at all. It’s not the transmitter as other radios work. I yanked the head unit and the aerial is still connected. Today I was giving the cab a good clean and discovered this (please see image). Maybe the previous owner had a new driver’s...
