Dab Upgrade


Best Answer justgotast170, 17 November 2013 - 06:07 PM

Just want to say a big thanks to everyone for your help. Now got the dab installed and working using the adapter Amran told me about.

 

Also big thanks to Stoney for the guide. I didn't need the two adaptor plates for mine just screw in the old plastic.

 

Also big thanks to Sal for the faceplate.

 

Anyway thanks for all the help the wife is happy and I have some Brownie points for the holidays.

Hi all, I'm planning to fit an AutoDAB unit to my 2008 Focus Titanium this week - currently it has the non DAB single CD Sony unit. Then to fit the Ford DAB aerial and cabling - someone on this forum mentioned the Ford aerial will work with the AutoDAB unit. I'm a bit woried about the radio ends of the Ford DAB aerial cables. Earlier ones seemed to have both a Fakra and ISO end whereas the later ones look like they have two ISO ends. I guess I can get round this with some adaptors. The AutoDAB unit needs an SMA connection anyway. So I'll need a Fakra to SMA or ISO to SMA adaptor I guess, depending on which Ford cables I get. Anyone able to shed any light on this? Sal, I'm wondering if you still want to sell your wiring loom and DAB aerial, I'd be interested. What ends do the aerial cables have?
