    T6.1 DAB signal keeps dropping now PopTop fitted

    Hi, I have a T6.1 which has been converted to pop top campervan. I have just upgraded to an Alpine Halo and the radio signal keeps dropping with both DAB and FM. Does anybody know how I can sort this? Thank you

    Radio Gaga ?

    I don’t know whether I’m imagining things, but my radio ( especially on Absolute Radio ) seems to fade out when I go around corners.

    Hi there, I had an after market wing mirror fitted last Sept following a mirror high 5 with a wide caravan - power folding, heated glass, DAB antenna as the original. I'm SURE the DAB worked when I collected it from the garage, but since then the DAB reception first went weird (filtering...

    Is anyone having problems with DAB reception suddenly?

    Is anyone else suffering poor DAB reception at the moment? I've been all over the country this week and reception is poor and the auto switching to FM barely kicks in. I had a Shark fin aerial fitted when I first got the van and it's been fine, this has come on purely in the last 7 days or so.

    Infotainment - DAB and Park Pilot

    TBH, I've ended up here because I've just bought a 2015 T6. It's just had a new aerial fitted, Sat Nav works fine now (it didn't) but there are no DAB stations and the Park Pilot is a bit erratic, telling me there are things there when they're not! I know there have been a few discussions on...

    Slyline Aurora & DAB Ground-Plane

    Hi all, has anyone had cause to remove the roof lining from a skyline aurora pop top roof. I'm wondering if I could fit a metal plate into the roof of the pop top and fit a sharkfin aerial to the pop top. Would this work and any ideas how easy the roof lining is to remove?

    Sharkfin aerial on underside of roof?

    Sorry if this has been discussed already. My dab has started playing up recently and thinking of fitting a sharkfin. Has anyone fitted one to the roof above the front seats but under or inside of the pop top roof. There's a nice flat area that's out of the weather, but wasn't sure if the...

    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

    Fixing DAB Interference From Aftermarket LED Lamps

    I have poverty spec T4 headlamps on my T6. The old incandescent DRLs look so old fashioned, and I wanted to change to LEDs. The first problem with this is finding reliable CANbus ones that don't bring on the bulb failure monitor. All the ones I tried caused DAB interference. I almost lost...

    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...
