    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...

    Unlock DAB?

    Hi everyone. I have recently picked up a 67 plate Shuttle SE and I'm surprise to find that even though it has a fairly up to date entertainment system with Apple CarPlay, it doesn't have DAB radio. It looks like this may have been an option. Are there any experts around here. Is it possible...

    I am trying to find out how easy it will be to unbolt the roof mounted antenna on my t6.1. I am hoping it can be accessed via the interior light console. Any help and tips on accessing both of these?

    I plan on installing a 360 camera system on our LWB T6. The standard headunit will not accept a camera (oem or 3rd party), so I have to change it.
