  1. Begin by ensuring that your Lexus is running or in ‘ACCESSORY’ mode, with the multimedia system switched on.

  1. I have a 2014 gs300h with DAB radio. unfortunately it doesn’t pick up any of the BBC National stations. can this be remedied?

  2. Hi,
    I have a 2021 NX Premium Sports Edition with DAB radio. The signal on DAB keeps cutting out for no apparent reason and shows “No Signal”. It happens so frequently that I have to revert to MW. It is extremely annoying and frustrating and I find this to be unacceptable with a premium car. I have had DAB for several years in my previous vehicles and never had this problem driving my regular routes as I do now. How can this be rectified, please?

      1. As you requested, I have contacted the multimedia support team at : two or three times now.
        I have not received any acknowledgement or reply.
        I assume that this is not usual, so would you ask them to reply please.
        Thank you.

        1. Hello Greg,
          Thanks for your reply.
          Please try calling 0345 129 5484 if you wish to chase this up.
          We hope this helps.

  3. Hi
    I have a 2012 IS200D F-Sport with the touchscreen nav. Can you tell me if this is fitted with a DAB reciever? It has the physical button on the center console but it doesn’t seem to do anything.

    Thank you
