Hey all, Move Up! 2013 owner here.

Can you folks help me decipher the photo below? The quality of my radio reception suddenly nose-dived (can barely hear one major FM station) so accessed the RCD 215 secret menu thinking it would help me diagnose the problem. So far I'm looking at either replacing the aerial (probably not a stubby one) and/ or base but would love to know what "ANT1 : AUS" means?

Cheers!

Maybe the aerial connector on the back of the head unit has just worked loose over time. Probably worth the cost of a set of removal keys, and an hour* of your time, to take a look ?

*40 minutes to download and decipher the instructions, 10 minutes to actually remove the relevant trim bits, 10 minutes to retrieve the last trim screw, which dropped into the dash as you were removing it.

I'd say 2 hours for me... I'm awful at taking stuff apart, even worse putting it all together!

So fitting a new aerial didn't do anything...

As well as checking the head unit for loose connection (as suggested by tsi17) I also want to check the aerial base, but the only resource I've found here doesn't even relate as there's no cover strip in the Up!

Any other ideas on how I can investigate the aerial base?

Cheers

Hi, did you ever resolve this problem? Exact same thing has happened to my radio. Tried messing around in the hidden menu to see if there is any way of switching the aerial channel back on but had no joy!
