My 522GW works fine so I am guessing that you need to get the one you have replaced if it isn't working.
This will be my 3rd 522GW - running out of patience with it now.

I run the 512GW with the rear camera and I have no problems with it at all.

hmm, I havent had any DAB problems and i have the exact same camera and i actually took of the ferrite core thing off the cable cos i couldnt seem to get it to stay put. but i dont have the rear window one, i have the rear view add on module. i have read many times that they can cause issues though with dab. soon going to have a long drive down to the south coast so i will update yall see if i have the issue on that drive. best of luck though with this issue. hope you get it resolved.

How do you find the picture quality of the rear add on module ? I was thinking of this rather than the actual rear camera if they cannot sort out the DAB issues.
Does the add on module actually pick up much through the rear window that would be useful in the event of needing any evidence ?
Also I assume that if you have a passenger in the middle seat then you just get a video of their head !

To accommodate the rear add on module they would ust need to move my front camera over a touch as it is fairly close to the rear view mirror.

I got a refund on the Nextbase HD Duo which does front and back permanently because of the sheer size of it. It would’ve been like having a king size Mars Bar ( uk confectionary item for our overseas members) on the screen. The 522 with the rear module if I remember correctly comes close to the same size and is MASSIVE!!!

Lol I'll take some pictures of my set up and I'll get some video or pics of quality to show ya. But the quality from what I've looked at seems pretty good. I've only had it a week or so really.

Just an update for my ongoing 522GW / DAB issues - had both front and rear cameras replaced after various issues but the DAB reception is just rubbish still. Drove from Harrogate to Leicester yesterday and trying to listen to BBC R5 Live was impossible.
I have come to the conclusion that a rear camera fitted in the Tig means NO DAB reception..
If anyone can tell me a solution to this i would be extremely grateful as I really want to keep the rear camera but still listen to the radio !

Have you tried getting some spare stickys and repositioning the camera? If you have it dead centre see if sticking it to the top right or left corners helps with the reception. The camera’s wide angle lens will still pick up everything just at a different angle. I would expect to be able to get the spare sticky pads online
