Customer Question

I bought a Pioneer car radio AVH-X3500DAB 2 years ago.
Fitted by Halfords, worked very well.
A year ago my car battery went dead and the radio lost all the pre-sets.
Since then the DAB radio only receives about 5 stations no matter where I am.
How do I get all the other stations back I had before?
Many thanks for your help

Hello as the 1st step I'd suggest to turn off the ignition and then press and hold the reset button on the front panel See the image
