Though I might go for the Blaupunkt Stockholm(?) as that also plays CDs - I'm a bit of an old fart that still has a few CDs kicking about in the glovebox - that way it should cover all optionsReally like what you have done to your van, especially the functionality and look of the cab area - nice!
Think I will be shelling out for a Blaupunkt Skagen 400 DAB v soon and look forward to hearing what solution you arrive at re the DAB aerial
If Mazda were anything like the Ford-sourced CANBUS system in my old Tourneo there might have been some important updates to the BCM software configuration not done when retro-fitting the DAB head unit.It’ll be interesting to hear how you’ve got on with your dab set up now. I’ve always been put off by a good friend of mine telling me about dab issues at the Mazda main dealer where he worked. This was at least a half a dozen years ago and possibly more. The upshot was that if a car came with dab as standard in whatever model it was absolutely fine. If however they retrofitted a dab radio to the same car model etc etc, they could never seem to get it to work as well as one factory fitted as stock. But as I said, that was several years ago.
Ozziedog,,,,,,,,tell me it’s fab now
You might be better off fitting a dedicated amplified DAB aerial as high up and as far away from the engine as possibleI’ve just fitted a DAB headunit with signal via the original aerial.
The reception is patchy but I’m just chuffed to have music!
I think fitting a new standard aerial would bring a significant improvement!

Arrived at Pen-y-bont site at Bala early this afternoon, it’s only a 50 mile jaunt cross country from Llanasa, it’s a great drive along the B4501
It’s gonna be a cold one tonight, we’re well prepared. On the subject of temperature,
the inside / outside worked well as did the new sump sender. Interesting to see the temp rise quickly then ease off once the cooling flaps had presumably fully opened. DAB aerial worked well once we got out of the village.
Which DAB aerial did you use?
