I have just taken delivery of my new Fiesta and I am now trying to get some idea of how to use the radio.

I now have a fairly good idea how to use the AM and FM bands but I am completely confused by the complex layout of the stations, i.e DAB1, DAB 2 etc.

Can anyone point me to a useful guide for using this rather complex audio system.

Have something to contribute?

Once on DAB with some random station playing just use left and right to seek a station and when you've found one you want to keep e.g 'Radio 1' hold down one of the number keys e.g '1' and the station will then be stored to that number. hope this helps :)

DAB1 and DAB2 basically just let you reuse the numbers do you can store more presets. Personally I only use FM1 or DAB1 and AM. I'm fairly sure if you are on DAB and press left (<) it lists all the stations in a similar way to have you can view tracks on a mp3 player connected via the usb port.

welcome to the world of DAB! it took me a while to figure out the complexity of the stations too

Simply press the bottom left 'services' button and it will show you what you can choose from :) pressing skip will also go through these stations as you normally would with am/fm.

However, take note that BBC stations seem to be on a seperate group from all the others, so if you dont find them at first - keep searching! it may take a few attempts/change in location. I dont know why!
