    This looks pretty amazing. I've just fitted an RNSe to my 2009 A3 and don't have a radio signal anymore. It's going to cost as much as one of these to sort and like the guy says in the YouTube clip the fm signal will eventually be switched off.
    Is this a hard mod to do yourself and do they provide any codes you may require for vcds?

    Yeah it works really well bud!!


    I fitted one into my A3 and the sound quality is awesome... Hardly ever drops out when driving about. Could have got one of our engineers to fit it but I did it myself and I'm a web / marketing guy not an engineer. Took a couple of hours but well worth it.

    The great thing about this is that it works with pretty much all the head units in the A3 as well as other makes / models!

    Well I got one of these units and I fitted all correctly except where I put the antenna the earth is not touching the metal pillar of the car and I cannot get a clear signal on the move at all😩

    Would the earth stop me getting signal??

    I live in brum so the digital signal is strong in the area. Help please.

    You need to get that earthing connection... I'm not sure from a technical / engineer perspective why it needs a ground but I do know that you have to have it.

    Quick question - Why did you not do the earth?

    I have one in my A3 and it works really well... Lots of customers with all different makes and models also have had this done and they love it!

    It was a school boy error really. I stuck it down before realising it wouldn't reach the pillar. At the time the signal was fine. As soon as I left my drive it stopped getting a decent signal. As soon as I did it I tried pulling it off but it looked like I'd struggle to get it to stick down again. I'll pull it off and try to earth it, just hope it will stick back ok.

    I very much doubt you will get that stuck down again if you take it off... They aren't really designed to do that. It will probably damage the aerial.

    I know it's a pain but I think you may have to get a new aerial in preparation.

    Hey Coxy,

    Unfortunately it won't. The only way you can communicate with this particular AutoDab system is via the MFSW. They do have a "Universal kit" which uses a remote control for cars that don't have a MFSW.

    You can check it out here - Universal AutoDAB - Aftermarket DAB Radio | Advanced In-Car Technologies

    I must admit, even though some people like this system, I'm not a massive fan of the remote!

    Cheers for the reply.
    You're right about the remote, not loving it.

    Does the auto dab require coding to rnse?
