How to start
Open the application and make sure that your DAB+M or DAB+A is powered on. When all these conditions are met, the app connects to the nearest Dension DAB device automatically.
After the connection, the application will switch to the ‘Manage Station’ screen and do a scan automatically so you will see all the available stations listed.
In case of first usage, you need to do some basic settings before you can listen and enjoy DAB music.
Setting FM frequency
First of all, you need to seek for a free FM frequency on your car radio. If you found one where you do not hear other stations, you need to go into the ‘Set things’ menu of the application and tap on ‘Frequency’.
In the pop up menu you can set the same frequency. After you click on the tick logo, you should hear the DAB on the radio on that frequency, also you should see the name of the currently played DAB station on the display of the radio as RDS.
You can also use automatical frequency set up if you tap on the little magnifying icon on the top left corner of the pop up menu. In this case the device automatically searches for free FM frequency and sets the device there. After that you will see the exact frequency in a pop up menu and the app will drop you back to the ‘Set things’ menu.
This menu is where you can list all of the available DAB stations in alphabetical order.
The application allows you to set unlimited favourite stations. In order to do so, you need to swipe the channel to the left then click on the yellow heart icon. The favourite stations will be marked with a yellow line on the right side and the currently played station is marked in a yellow background.
The order of the favourite stations can be selected by the user. You just need to drag and drop your favourite station to the place where you would like to see it.
All of this information is stored in the application on the phone which means all users can have personalized favourites list of their own.
Removing stations from the favourites is the same process as you added it. You just need to swipe it to the left and tap on the yellow heart.
In the ‘Manage stations’ menu you can start a DAB scan by tapping on the refresh icon in the bottom right corner of the display.
If you press the play icon, you can go directly to the ‘Now playing’ screen.
In this screen you can get all of the information sent by the currently played DAB broadcaster, and you can also see the logo of the station.
With the 4th button on the main screen, you can select from different sources. If you tap on the bottom left icon on the main screen, it will show the active source.
In case of AUX or BT audio source, you will see only the logo of the source in the ‘Now Playing’ menu.
The ‘Manage stations’ will be active in case of all sources and if you select a DAB station the source will switch to DAB automatically.
