    Default Getting DAB

    I have a 2005 Full Can Signum that currently has the CD70 Navi unit fitted, I'm wanting to switch to a DAB unit, but not loose any functionality in the car.

    I know there was a DAB option on the signum, but not sure how easy it's going to be to find and then getting the BC to read correctly for the V6 CDTI.

    So what I was thinking was to get the OE DAB aerial as it'll keep the car OE looking, and then pair this with a hideaway DAB unit that will interface with the standard stereo, something like MediaDAB.

    What are peoples thoughts? Anyone done this?

    Vauxhall dealers are doing a deal - £199.00 (Fitted) and all you see is an internal Ariel on the front window passenger side near the tax disc. You still have all the functions on the steering wheel etc. If you are keeping your car for a few years seems to be worth it. I am thinking of it for my car - I also have a CD70 Nav Unit with Aux. Also I have seen them for sale online for £149.00 but then you have to fit it yourself.

    Note that it can ONLY be controlled by the steering wheel controls, but it does show the station info on the display BUT only using the FM/RDS text.
