Does anyone have any issues with the DAB radio cutting out with poor signal but ok with FM radio ?

I’ve had DAB in a few cars now and all have done what you describe. The DAB signal appears to be either on or off. It does not fade in and out like FM.

I have to say I'm very impressed with DAB. The only time I lose it on a regular basis is in the core of our concrete multi-storey company car park, and even then only for two or three seconds in one spot. The rest of the time it's crystal clear.

On a recent trip to the Lake District we did lose it when we were in very remote areas in the middle of nowhere, however, it was the same place where we always lost FM.

Despite my reservations of getting DAB with the Xcellence, I needn't have worried.
