How To Scan My DAB Radio....?

Recently returned to the Mini fold after a few years away, now with 2013 R56 Cooper SD.

Car is fully loaded, so the radio is part of the Connect (?) system, operated by the toggle mouse-type-thing. My previous Mini's had the bigger speedo, so I've not used this system before.

Problem is, previous owner lost the manual(s), so they have been replaced by their F56 counterparts.

For the life of me, I can't work out how to rescan my DAB radio. Looked everywhere online (and on here, YT, the works....) and still can't find the answer anywhere. It can't be that hard, but I just cannot see how do it!

Please help - and put a returning newbie out of his misery!

From memory I think if you scroll to the top of the dab stations there is some option to do a rescan, my old R56 and R59 had that option and I used to use it when I went abroad to get local stations. Can you find a manual online?

Many thanks - I looked through yesterday, but couldn't find anything....must be missing something obvious.

Can't find a manual online either - frustrating!

If you go here and put the VIN number you should get the specific manual for the car
