map is loading, please wait...
The coloured area on the map represents the locations where DAB reception should be possible in a car, or using a DAB receiver where the aerial is above ground-floor level. Those areas showing shaded with bright colour (one colour per DAB frequency) indoor domestic reception even at ground level should be highly reliable: please remember that the receiver aerial position and how fast you are moving can affect reception reliability.

Brian Taylor: Hi, Brian. It is possible that a power surge has disrupted the tuning capacity of your car DAB radio. It is unfortunate that the set is now out of warranty, but if I were you, I would contact the manufacturer or at least the supplier anyway, as they may be willing to make some gesture that will assist you, such as a reduced cost repair or a discount on a replacement because you didn't intentionally start the engine whilst a BBC channel was playing. Just my suggestion, anyway! Richard.

Brian Taylor : Re having tried all the obvious things, did this also include temporarily disconnecting the rear ISO connector plug for around 30 seconds or so?
Also, whilst the radio is slid out of the dashboard fascia check for a permanent 12 volts supply on the pin connected onto the end of the yellow lead, this having to be powered "at all times" to enable the memory to function properly.

Brian Taylor: Yes, that's most likely to be the case, as the fuse used for car audio equipment is usually powered via the ignition switches circuitry, whereas the receiver's memory back up system is fed from a fuse associated with a constant (non switched) supply, such as directly from the battery.
