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?!?

I only listen to couple of stations on the DAB (I wouldn't go back to FM!!), so cannot comment on missing stations but I do find that if I make a telephone call or receive one - with the radio/audio turned off and then turn on the radio, the DAB is playing another radio station but indicating another. e.g playing Capital FM when indicating BBCR4 on the display. Tapping the BBCR4 preset sorts it out.
Weird. Just another quirk of the less that inspiring system they call the MMCS or a malfunction?

This has happened to me too. I have a Phev 2017 with the MMCS in south west London. After a short time either the signal to my preset station is lost or there's another glitch and it goes to Absolute 70s. All the preset names on DAB1-3 tabs are lost but the presets are still there under the '12E' '11A' etc labels. Choosing from the station list does NOT solve it. The scanning for stations fails intermittently. Whether I make a preset using station list or the tuning knob, it makes no difference. In the end, on every drive, my DAB station is lost and goes to Absolute 70s. This is highly frustrating and unacceptable for a car of this standard.
This started shortly after I had been rummaging under the passenger seat to find a lost coin but I can't imagine that could have caused it.

Make sure the connection to the antenna is still intact.
