Post update I was hoping that the radio would be usable in the UK, mine isn't. BBC FM channels OK at standstill but not when moving, MW a waste of time. Is this only my car or is it true for all?

And before anyway writes that they never listen to the radio blah blah, I do, I commute in the car and like to listen to the news etc. Then there is the lack of DAB....why do McLaren get this part so wrong when to a layman it appears to be so simple?

If this is the best McLaren can do then I'm going to have to look at an aftermarket solution. The cars a keeper and so I want it to tick all the boxes.

Thanks

I'm not too far away from your location and have found radio reception to be spot on :confused:

Heart FM or the local stays constant and when travelling down to Silverstone the other weekend Radio 2 was fine all the way there- Radio 2 for the traffic information obviously :eek:

Even over the hills of the A5 it kept a lock.
I'm off on a longer trip this weekend, so will see how it goes with radio traffic 2 :)

I don't have any problems with it over here.

I also listen to the radio... Mainly because every hour they repeat where the police is flashing.

OK, thanks. I'll get in touch with McLaren and see if there was an error in the upgrade...

As part of the upgrade two new aerials and a tuner (FROM MEMORY), are installed. Made all the difference to reception which is now perfect in the UK
