I see that from January 2013, DAB will be an option for the 9G. As this is something I had years ago and lost when I had my 8G for 5 years and again when I moved to 9G, I thought things were finally moving in the right direction.
I mailed Honda UK to see if they would be introducing a DAB upgrade option at any time? Response was...
"A DAB accessory will soon be released which will enable current audio units to be able to receive signal for digital radio.
This will be an optional extra/accessory, so will not be provided as a complimentary upgrade.
Once available, the new accessory will be available to purchase through your local Honda dealership."
"Currently there isn't a confirmed date for the release of this accessory.
Please accept our apologies for any disappointment this may cause."
I have seen other bolt-on DAB unit, but because of the problems I had with idle stop, I wanted to wait for an official Honda product.
