Or not a solution :oops:
Collected my new HS today and was shocked and very surprised that there was an antenna attached to the N/S windscreen and a partial hidden lead direct into the USB. See photos.
However, I actually had an email from the dealer a few hours later to say this is a temporary fix and later in the year when the microchip situation improves they will retrofit with the new chip and remove this antenna and lead.
Apart from this the handover went smoothly.

It looks like a retrofit solution to allow you to receive the vehicle.

It is probably the same unit as this one from Amazon:


There is currently a worldwide shortage of the DAB chips and cars sold in the UK can't have a radio without DAB reception.

Cheers..

Very good find and most probably the same unit. You are right stating “any new vehicle sold in the UK must be fitted with a DAB capability on handover”
