However, if your reception issues persist, you’re most likely managing associate instrumentation malfunction, most of that are simply repaired.

Check your antenna mast extended

There are plenty of how that a manual antenna mast will find yourself pushed in. regardless of the case, if you have got a retractile mast and your reception has been awful recently it’s positively value checking this firstly.

Since antennas perform by memorizing radio waves, it solely stands to reason that being shoved down within the automotive would possibly create it troublesome for your antenna to perform properly. actuation it back out, if you discover it shoved in, is also all it takes to immensely improve your reception.

This may sound like extraordinarily basic stuff, however it’s truly amazingly common for manual antennas to be backward so left that manner. Since there isn’t any mechanism to forestall these masts from being backward, anyone will walk by and shove your antenna down.

 

Check Your Antenna Connections

One of the foremost common causes of poor car radio reception may be a poor antenna connection. If the antenna cable is poorly seated in your head unit, or any of the connections are loose, worn, or unsound, you’ll usually notice it troublesome to tune into your favorite station.

The first issue to test is that the connection between the antenna cable and therefore the back of your head unit. If that’s properly seated , then you’ll wish to seek out a station you’ll be able to tune into then gently wiggle the antenna itself back and forth. If the connection is solid, you shouldn’t notice something. If the connection is loose, you’ll in all probability notice the tuner drop then reacquire the signal. If that happens, you ought to tighten the antenna and check the grounds.

Get a New Antenna

When check your antenna connections, you will realize that your antenna mounting hardware or mast is unsound, rusted, or broken another method. therein case, exchange the antenna can sometimes do the trick. Since rust and corrosion will stop the antenna from creating a solid reference to your head unit, merely exchange the unit can typically lead to higher reception.

There also are one or two of different cases that decision for a replacement antenna. for example, some cars include “grid style” antennas mounted on the car window glass rather than typical whip or mast antennas. These flat antennas have some aesthetic advantages, and that they can’t be broken off by a automotive wash or a vandal, however they typically suffer from poor reception in huge cities or unsmooth areas. In some cases, a whip antenna can offer higher reception.

 

Buy a Radio signal boosters

Radio signal boosters are not suitable for all poor reception, however there are specific circumstances wherever they’re going to cure what ails you. If you’ll receive an indication from a specific station, however it’s particularly weak, then an indication booster would possibly improve your reception. However, boosters won’t do something for you if the signal degradation relates to obstructions like tall buildings and hills.

Buy a new car radio

On the entire, the radio tuners in car radios are much more advanced than home radios. however even an inexpensive digital car radio encompasses a sight a lot of happening beneath the hood.

That being aforementioned, not all head unit radio tuners are created equal. therefore if you’ve checked everything else, and you can’t blame your reception issues on the rain (or the tall buildings, or the close hills), then it would be time to interchange your head unit.

ATTENTION!

That’s what I do here, I do it in my own car and at my own responsibility, that’s my car!
If you decide something similar and break / ruin / burn / break your car, it is your responsibility!
Clearly, therefore: WE DO NOT RESPOND FOR YOUR LOSS!

17.12.2018

The big decision was taken two months ago!
Android screen. And not only! There are agendas and filthy plans from behind! Besides the usability of using the phone via BT and music via BT and USB, it has more: After we also put a Scirocco dial (we searched it!) With a white screen, then … Optical Parking System, Park Assist (yes, to park it himself !!!) and others cheer! A … and reversing camera, of course!

So, in this way:
What we got in principle!

VW radio readyoff
Here we spoiled the … surprise!
from the Chinese Autopumpkin, through the German warehouse, an Android 7.1.4 screen with all the goodies. GPS, BT, USB, etc. without customs clearance, delivery in 18 days … (10 euro postal, delivered by ELTA-Courier).

vw radio canbusdecoder
Can Bus Decoder, to prevent the battery from emptying. Though … in my case it was not necessary, I think, since I have a very new Can Gateway. However, why not!
An interesting correction, here by my friend Giannis D., which pointed out that the decoder does not only do this, but also converts all the communications between the car and the radio. And what are they? Handling from the buttons on the steering wheel, vehicle information (see Vehicle screen, below and others). And of course, it controls when “the key goes out of the machine” and turns off the device completely so it does not pull current (what I mentioned above as its only function).
So … We’re extinguishing the old RCD 300.

Removing the RCD300 is simple: We knock out the 2 antennas (AM / FM) and the big connector with the currents. End.
Then we click on the new screen:

GPS Antenna
WIFI antenna (remember, it’s an Android device, just like my cell phone!)

The extension of the USB, which I temporarily pushed to the side of the console, at the passenger’s feet. I will put some “USB” button as I had done in the previous Chinese!
