Just a question to anyone that has front and rear dash cameras in your Tiguans - do you suffer from interference with the DAB radio ?
i am having an ongoing battle with my VW dealer and a Nextbase 522GW and rear camera which makes DAB radio virtually unusable as it just keeps dropping out.
They have fitted a couple of ferrite cores as suggested by Nextbase but still no good. I am at the point of wanting a total refund (also had lots of other problems with the front 522 camera and am on camera number 3 now).
I would really like front and rear cameras !
Is my VW dealer just not upto the task ? is it all down to the routing of the cable to the rear camera ?
Not had a, single issue with DAB and the blackvue 900 the DAB works without an issue.

Thank you Hillbilly & JK-VWTiguanR for the replies.
I will look further at the BV cameras and maybe get someone else to install the cameras rather than VW.
First need to get a refund !

I agree we dont get it in the cars here and I have a DAB+ radio at home and 40 mins out of city centre i have to virtually stand on the roof with one leg pointing 173.5deg south to get a decent signal
