2018 Discovery Sport HSE Luxury

Post by Wayne Fraser » Sun Jan 13, 2019 6:58 am

Just picked up my Discovery Sport Demo yesterday and so far very pleased. I was in various JLR cars for 10 years and moved to Mercedes for 2 years (big mistake), so I’m glad to be back. This forum I’m sure will be a regular visit for questions and reading peoples experiences.

One teething issue I have noticed, is the DAB radio will not stay connected. Some people recommend a reset, but not sure if it’s straight forward.

Thanks WF

Looks a nice motor, like the colour. Can’t help you with the radio, I tend not to turn the media on. I’d take it back to the dealership when your passing, probably something quite simple.

Nice motor!

Check the InControl Touch version and get it updated to the latest if it isn’t.

Welcome :)

I'm curious why you feel going to Merc was a mistake?

I had a GLC and unfortunately it spent more time in the garage than it did on the road. The car had this annoying knocking noise on the rear and after 6 weeks in the garage and having fitted new axle, drive shafts, shock absorbers, spring, hub and several other bits and still not resolve, plus the dreading crabbing, it was not for me. It’s a shame as I have a SLK and that’s great. I definitely had the Friday afternoon car .

Does the DAB just lose the connection or disappear altogether? My radio lost DAB completely, just disappeared from the screen, and needed a software update. But that was back in 2017 on a MY16 car, so I'd have thought they'd have fixed it by now!

A system reset in the System Settings menu will bring back the missing DAB, but the software update probably fixes the root cause as the reset can mean DAB disappears again later.
