BMW customers can now enjoy the new digital programming without any restrictions. What’s more, the digital sound quality is superb – without any interference, background noise, crackling or fading. The Digital Audio Broadcasting (DAB/DAB+) tuner features easy channel preset and automatic station search functions so that drivers are not distracted – and this contributes to more traffic safety.
As the digital broadcasting network rapidly expands, the variety and range of information and entertainment programming will increase, even including a wide selection of special-interest channels. In Germany, there are currently 12 nationwide digital broadcasters that are listed and described on the Internet platform www.digitalradio.de. By visiting this website listeners can learn more about the “radio of the future”. In addition to these 12 digital channels, there is a large number of regional stations that broadcast digital programming. The transmission range of these channels generally covers specific states or geographic areas. Local digital channels, the so-called city broadcasters, round off the digital programming experience. In metropolitan areas there are now more than 30 digital radio channels that broadcast programme content in CD audio quality that can be enjoyed in a BMW equipped with DAB/DAB+. What’s more, the number of digital radio broadcasters continues to rise in Germany.
And when travelling in other European countries, BMW owners and their passengers also have the pleasure of listening to digital radio in crystal clear audio quality. In Great Britain, Denmark, Sweden and Switzerland there is a particularly wide variety of digital channels to choose from. In many other countries DAB is already a reality – and it is growing in popularity as the digital transmission network continues to expand. By offering this digital technology in all of its models, BMW is playing a leading role in promoting the “radio of the future”.
