DAB radio losing preset station names

Thu Feb 26, 2015 11:52 am

Hi,
As a new PHEV user I'm trying to figure out some annoying quirks, one of which is the DAB radio. If I save one or more present stations they will initially register with the proper station name but yesterday all of the names disappeared to be replaced with something like "12e". The correct station is still there if you select the present, but you can no longer tell what station the present is for. Has anyone else noticed this and have you discovered a solution?
Thanks,
A rather perplexed BeardDude

Give it two days (if you haven't already), could be a problem with your local DAB provider/broadcaster.
Have you got another DAB receiver so you could do a crosscheck?

I will check it again tomorrow but several things make me think it's a problem with the car radio or software - a colleague at work recently took delivery of the same model PHEV a few days before me and he has the same issue. Also, my own DAB radio (not in the car) has never had this problem, and I had perfect signal strength in the car for all of the stations throughout. It was just that the station names disappeared from the presets. My journeys so far have all been in a metropolitan area (London) with good DAB reception.
If the problem resolves itself I will update this post.

If you select station list and then preset the names will reappear.

I blew the main fuse last weekend and after that the car was all English speaking plus DAB and FM is not showing station infos anymore.
So I will try jaapv's reappear-trick later tomorrow.

Incident made me hear the English speaking navigation... LOL how amazing is THAT woman?!?
