DAB+ retrofit - 2010 car

First of all - did a lot of research on the subject and came up with two potential answers to the question if it is possible or not to retrofit DAB+ to D4, 2010 (in fact LR4, but this does not matter).

1. No, it is not possible, in2digi is required (pricey).
2. Yes, it is possible - based on messages from one of good souls, though I couldn't trace anyone who would have it done.

Ad. 1.
Infotainment, MOST, etc., on 2009-2012 (2013) cars is different from 2013+ (face lift) cars. Hence none of modules can be installed. Same applies to reverse camera, Sat Nav, etc.
The only option is to use in2digi module which is pretty pricey (or in other words to pricey to just listen to the radio from time to time, especially that I don't use the car that much in town for daily drive and only for trips, where DAB+ wouldn't be that much of a use).

About in2digi, there were some threads here and also clearly stated on autolro that in2digi is the only option:

Ad. 2.
Well, that good soul mentioned that Land Rover offered the kit to retrofit DAB+ to cars that were fitted with DAB (not DAB+) when built.

Wish is to have the latter be real hence asking here if anyone knows or heard anything more about it? I

Thanks in advance.

From what I can find, Landrover provide a kit which "Includes Wire Harness, Kit To Upgrade DAB Radio Receiver Into DAB+"

The current part number is LR079560 at a list cost of £314.02 +vat - fits vehicles from VIN CA000000, there is no Landrover option for vehicles prior to this.

Thanks - which means for my AA one I'm done and dusted. Sad
The CA+ means post-lift?

Thanks!

Thanks, that's exactly what I did read through prior posting, this and linked posted with PDF document.
The linked post talks about in2digi (option 1), pricey as no used units are available. And the PDF doc linked down there using LR/JLR components is for 2013+ cars with new infotainment (option 2).

For clarity and for others researching, the PDF referred is the one done by AussiePeterJ guide: https://www.disco3.co.uk/gallery/albums/us...orked.pdf, linked already under the thread mentioned.

Fingers crossed there is a soul who managed to use LR/JLR components to have DAB+.

No worries - any help is more than welcome and really appreciated.
Given the contrary messages I've received, wanted to clarify this and one of the first things I do is the RTFM/search, hence the conclusions included in the first post with highlights of outcomes from the research. My bad, I didn't include links Smile
Thanks again!

Got stuck.

Ordered and received DAB module from other D4. It was supposed to be down to pull:
a) pull out Sirius Satellite radio module (SDARS).
b) put in DAB (potentially install the DAB amplifier.

Seems like I'm in situation that have single antenna connector as was going to SDARS and have double plug expected with the DAB module.

I've feeling that I'm missing some important details or maybe the DAB module is too old and I should get on hunting for a newer one?

At the tail gate I've 5h32-18k891-ea, I didn't check upper level of back side wind to see if module 5H22-18K891-KA is there but it still doesn't seem like would solve the dual vs single plug to DAB.

Maybe it's because it is North America spec (NAS)? But this is HSE with Logic 7, so it should be using two antennas. I'm missing something, that's for sure.

Thanks for ideas on what could be the next step.
