Ford Accessories: DAB Upgrade

DAB stands for Digital Audio Broadcasting.

It’s a way of listening to the radio using a digital signal sound, rather than analogue radio (FM/AM). AutoDABis a high quality kit which transforms your original factory-fitted FM radio into a digital receiver, so you can get DAB, as well as existing AM/FM/LW channels. It is fitted behind the radio and uses the steering wheel controls to select the digital channels. No drilling or new external aerials are required. The only sign of the system is the digital film aerial, which is fitted in the top left hand corner of the windscreen.
