It's awful in my GTR when compared to my other cars, anyone else had the same problem? I'm tempted to see if it can be made better anyway.

Yup, mine is shocking, barely any of the stations work.

It used to work fine when new, its complete crap now.

I need DAB.

From memory, I believe there is an aerial amplifier. I'd check that is getting power i.e. the fuse is ok first.

I tended to "put up" with it, but then I just decided to use TuneIn Radio app and stream all my stations over Bluetooth

I haven't driven my car in around 7 months, but I seem to recall it getting maybe one channel, so imagine that's my issue. Thinking about it fuse went on the speakers about 2 years ago, could be linked to that.

Anyway, barely ever listen to the radio.

I will talk to Lee, see if he can figure something out.

I like listening to LBC :D and the crap radio puts me off taking the GTR out sometimes.

Never had a problem with mine. All the places the radio drops out are the same as the other cars I've owned and been in

Switched to EZI DAB with an Ariel booster mounted in the screen, problem solved

Jamie, don't get the ezi-dab. When lbc switched on dab last week I made did a load of research and the consensus was the same. The one to get is dab motion. Google it. Works invisibly too.

There's a slight delay in switching channels but I leave my radio on lbc all the time anyway.

I just fitted the DAB Motion, it seems to pick up everything other than the only channel I want to listen to, LBC :(

That's very odd!

How's the reception on the stations it does connect to?

How did you do the aerial? the stick on one or did you splice into the factory aerial?
