^ What Chubbs Said even the Mini has DAB.

My observations of models from Nissan and Infiniti is that new features seem to get added after they've been trialled in a specific model. Indeed, when I test drove the Infiniti 4x4 (cant remember the model no.!) the steering wheel controls and much of the dash were just like the GT-R.

 

I think its to do with getting built in to the ECU on one models and then rolling out to others. Give the MY17 GT-R has DAB radio I don't think it will be long before other models gain it - or, are their other family models that already have it?

 

I drove a Peugeot 208 (nasty diesel!) with a DAB radio the other day and had no problems with reception. Route driven was three days in and out of the Chilterns and South Oxfordshire...

Yes Nissan seem to really drag their heels on things like DAB radio and Apple carplay.

My 16 plate GTR does not have either.

I had a play with the updated multi fuction interface on the 17 GTR and did not find it very user friendly.

...multi fuction interface...

 

:)

 

very Freudian.

 

 

 

 

Edit - To be serious for a minute, the multi-function user interface on the M235i I owned for a few months was crap too. Not at all intuitive, far to complicated and, at the end of the day, frustratingly over-worked. On the other hand, the Connect Premium interface in the 370 is a delight.

I agree the iDrive was a pig to use.  Although I liked the Macro Buttons which you could programme to do shortcuts.  The Sat Nav is miles better on the Nissan to use than the Mini/BMW.  I have looked a few times at retro fitting DAB - it may be something I get done this year.  As its really good on the Mini - I know you can get integrated ones which use all the same controls as the existing stereo. 

 

I only hope the new Zed has GTR type toys for data display.  As much as I love the Fuel Economy bars - you get a little bored of them.....

You'll probably get the battery display of the diesel hybrid ... :bleh:

Noooooo!  I was just saying you're all barking up the wrong tree.  So I suppose it depends how literally you take the saying!
