    Default DAB Radio

    Was in a Vectra taxi the other day, not sure which model, half leather trim I think. Anyway it had the orange display for the radio and had a DAB icon on the display. Car was an 06 plate. I've got a 55 plate Signum Elite, can it be upgraded to DAB?

    Thanks
    Andy

    Yes it can mate its a new HU called a CDC40 opera plus the DAB interface unit and aerial, the cab was probably a design Vectra as its standard on those as a facelift. you can buy the kit you need off Ebay and then you need a Tech 2 session.

    Well i have a design 120 vec-c and yes its got a dab radio. and guess what i run it as a taxi too lol. Having the dab radio is a god sent as gives me a wider choice of stations to listen to, which is handy when some of the stations about are total crap.

    hope you can get it upgraded.

    That's the one thing I miss from my old Vec- it was an '06 Design.

    The CDC40, 6disc changer and DAB. It was great to be able to listen to XFM and various other DAB stations, and the CD changer meant I didn't have to root about in the glovebox all the time.

    I don't get why they don't do a CDC70DAB, surely it would be popular.

    You can get a multichanger version, it's called the DVD100 and is available in europe. Same as the DVD90 but can handle more than one disc at a time...

    Yup, the DVD90 system is exactly the same as the CD70, except that it takes DVD nav disc for the whole of europe instead of jsut the one country CD. The DVD100 is the same again, but with the multichanger...

    Come up sometimes on the German ebay but you'd need to be sure it had been Tech2'd out of the donor car or you'd have a very expensive doorstop...
