As long as your BMW vehicle has the optional DAB tuner, then it can be fitted with audio systems that receive digital radio broadcasts from Germany’s new digital radio network in Germany. Earlier this month, 27 stations started to broadcast.
The digital network is quickly expanding to serve all regions around the country. The DAB tuner, which is available for all models, is the only prerequisite for these digital radio transmissions to be received in BMW vehicles.
All BMW series can ordered this receiver as an optional accessory. BMW has shown its support for DAB/DAB+ radio reception since September 2010. There would be no limits on how BMW customers could enjoy the new digital programming. In addition, it offers excellent digital sound quality.
It doesn’t have interference, background noise, crackling or fading. For safety, drivers won’t be distracted with this device as this Digital Audio Broadcasting (DAB/DAB+) tuner features easy channel preset and automatic station search functions.
It’s expected that as the digital broadcasting network quickly expands, the variety and range of information and entertainment programming will rise and would even include a large selection of special-interest channels.
According to Internet platform www.digitalradio.de, there are 12 nationwide digital broadcasters listed in Germany. This tuner is often described by consumers as the “radio of the future”. Aside from these 12 digital channels, there are numerous other regional stations that broadcast digital programming.
On top of the 12 digital channels that you have, you can also enjoy a large number of regional radio stations that have digital programming. These digital broadcasts vary when it comes to transmission range, but they are usually confined to specific cities, state or regions. Local digital channels, or city broadcasters, add more variety.
In metropolitan areas, you can enjoy at least 30 digital radio channels that have high audio quality content. And that can be best enjoyed inside a BMW that features the DAB/DAB+. Further, you can expect more digital radio broadcasters to launch in Germany.
If you are driving in other European countries, BMW passengers and drivers can enjoy digital radio content in crystal clear quality. For instance, in Denmark, Great Britain, Switzerland and Sweden, you can enjoy a wide assortment of digital channels. In other countries, DAB adoption is steadily growing as more and more networks provide digital broadcasts. By including this digital technology in all of its cars, BMW is a pioneer in promoting the “radio of the future.”
DAB is already a reality – and it is growing in popularity as the digital transmission network continues to expand. By offering this digital technology in all of its models, BMW is playing a leading role in promoting the “radio of the future.”
