Hello all, I've spent ages searching and trying to find suitable parts but I can't find an answer anywhere to my query.

I have a 2010 A4 B8 with MMI 3G High, never been updated. Unit in boot is a 4F0 035 061 D

DAB works perfectly - but I do not have access to DAB+ stations.

Can I upgrade the system to receive DAB+?

Thanks alot

DAB+ uses the same frequencies and antenna, it just uses different codecs.

I believe the unit in the B8.5 can decode DAB+. If you can tell me what channels are DAB+ I can confirm to you, and also the part number of my unit in the boot. I have a 2015 B8.5 with MMI 3G+.

To be honest it’s probably much easier to just get a RSNav unit which will work better, have modern tech and give you your elusive DAB+

How are you ascertaining that you don’t have DAB+ and others do?
Missing radio stations - like Radio X.

Others are Capital Dance, Capital xtra, Capital extra reloaded, Smooth Chill, Smooth UK.
Thanks - if you have these perhaps I can just buy the newer tuner and swap them?

I did look quite heavily into RSNav, but got the feeling it was a little buggy - albeit with excellent support I don't want to regularly have to troubleshoot issues and deal with compromises.

Done this in my A6 recently.

DAB+ module added today to replace the normal DAB unit from 2009.

CP removed and jobs a good ‘un :) 4G0035061D for anyone interested.
