Switch on to DAB Digital Radio

Once you’ve experienced the clarity of DAB digital radio, you won’t want to go back to an analogue signal. There’s also a wide choice of digital-only radio stations you just can’t get on a conventional car radio.

Toyota owners can upgrade to a DAB digital radio for as little as £229 on most models. Adding this simple plug-in module to your car means you’ll enjoy crystal-clear reception. When listening to football or cricket coverage it sounds like the commentator is in the car with you. Voices are distinct and easy on the ear, and there’s none of the crackle or hiss you sometimes get when listening to analogue radio.

Music also sounds better through DAB, with precise, clearly defined and beautifully balanced sound.

By upgrading your Toyota’s car radio to digital, you’re also future-proofing your in-car entertainment against the day when conventional analogue radio will be switched off.

To find out more and book a fitting, contact your nearest Toyota dealer.

    1. Hi Massimiliano,

      Thanks for getting in touch. The upgrade to DAB digital radio is available on most models, however, we would recommend contacting your local Toyota Centre to confirm and book a fitting.

      Thanks.

      1. Hi Sverre,

        Unfortunately, this cannot be done due to different specifications of the vehicle.

        As this is not a UK vehicle, we would advise for you to contact Toyota in your region for further queries on this, as they will be able to advise you as to what to do next.

        Thanks.

  3. Hi, I have a 2018 Toyota Auris Hybrid and the DAB is receeption is appaulling, my previous car’s reception was far superior in this regard. I have tried re-scanning to no avail. As this is a lease car obviously reluctant to do any remedial work on it. Is there anything I can easily try?

    1. Hi Neale,

  4. Hi. I had same issue and comment further down here.

    I would say don’t bother speaking to your dealer as Toyota will advise here.

    You can probably get a Kenwood or Pioneer system in for the crazy price they will charger you to add module to your standard system.

    In UK shop like Halfords could do it for cheaper. In Europe could probably get an alternative Android Radio system perhaps.

    Toyota do good cars, but their radio system crap on older models.

    1. I’ve got a 68 plate CHR and the DAB reception is the worst.. I live in Norwich so thought it might be the area.. My missus has an Astra and the DAB in that is substantially better.

  5. Hi I have a 59 plate hiace van, i had bluetooth added from new. The module packed up and ive been told by my dealer its not available, i have probably spent around a £18o on those motorola blue boxes, the correct number is PZ409-0029A-D1, i know this is the problem as one of the mechanics gave me one but it was from an AYGO, an early one, it does work with my phone, sort of, as long as I DON’T TOUCH anything and just shout YES YES YES as i’m driving! then it will accept the call also when call ends don’t touch again or it all goes dead until you switch the ign off. leave it for a minute, the turn ign back on and it reboots, Is there an upgrade to the old analogue radio i have fitted? it used to play music off my Iphone which was great but not any more

    1. Hi Jes,
      Thanks for getting in touch with us.
      There are no official Toyota stereo upgrades for the Hiace, but there are certain aftermarket options available.
      A Google search can help discover these.
      Thanks.
