Every couple of minutes of driving the radio /satnav /Bluetooth goes off. Screen goes blank then comes back on after about 30 seconds, this happens repeatedly through any journey.

May just be low battery levels causing shut down of none essential systems ,could try minimizing other electrical component use and see if that helps,other than that may need dealer software upgrade

You need to get your battery tested and either replaced if needed or charged . Also check alternator charging rate .

This seems very similar to the issue we are getting in a C4 Cactus. Lots of people getting the same issue, a way to avoid it is to tune the DAB into anything except BBC. Try it and see what happens.

I had to take it to citroen to do a software/firmware update, they said the problem was the WiFi part of the software causing the problem. The update has removed WiFi and added Apple Car play. Didn't ask what solution would be if you need to keep WiFi as I don't use it.
