BMW goes digital with Connects2

BMW has announced that it is partnering with Connects2 and its AutoDAB product to offer a fully integrated retrofit digital radio that is fully compatible with all BMW's with a RDS text equipped FM radio.

The unique interface is the first fully integrated aftermarket digital radio available for BMWs in the UK.

The AutoDAB system fits behind the dashboard, plugging into the existing radio. Fitting seamlessly behind the existing head-unit, installation takes on average one hour with no additional box or dangling wires, just a small aerial running from the back of the unit, affixing to the top left corner of the windscreen.

Once installed, the station, artist information and song titles are all transmitted via RDS and displayed as text on the car's existing display. All DAB functions are controlled by a radio frequency remote control fixed to the dashboard and favourite digital radio stations can be stored for quick access, with FM radio stations still available.

AutoDAB is compatible with all post 1998 model cars with original BMW radio, please contact your local BMW dealer for full compatibility and functionality. The BMW digital radio retrofit is priced at £299 fitted and available to order from local BMW dealers.
