This forum is brilliant! So many helpful interesting and sometimes plain hilarious posts. Thank you all and long may it continue.
On the subject of DAB I want to keep the RT4 but do miss planet rock. Anyone tried one of those DAB adapter things?

I've split this off into the telematics section Bandit - as it helps others locate relevant info more easily. :wink:

The Citroen offerings were the AutoDAb and EZI-DAB systems. Basically the same as the Alpine systems. There are 2 choices - an add-on unit (the EZIDAB) that sticks out the dash separately controlled (a bit naff if you like the OEM look), or the AUTODAB that is a small box that is heidden away and this fully integrates into the car's RT4 display and head unit. So you can get the DAB display coming out on the main display screen and control it through the steering wheel controls as normal.

You would need to check RT4 compatibility (not RD4) with the dealer as some head units won't interface (like the NG4 that I have).
