LOL! Piping DAB through FM! Talk about the worst of both worlds.
A deal only for the desperate I think.

A bit like piping a freeview box through a SCART lead, because noone would do that eh? :whistling:

Nowt wrong with FM - as long as it's a good signal, it'll be as clear as DAB anyway.

I understand FM quality can be low, but I'm interested to know what's the "worst" bit for DAB (not got it yet)?

You have to understand though that this can connect through either a spare FM station OR via your car stereos aux input. The cost of buying a dedicated DAB head unit for your car is extortionate.

The quality of digital radio is clearer than that of FM, add to that you get a choice of better stations, I don't personally feel its a deal for the desperate.

Personally I would much prefer to listen to a decent Radio station in the car, you cannot get Radio 6 via FM

I have one of these and I have to say DAB was a big let down. Coverage is crap, always breaks up and I have now left it in my glove box. iPhone with Wunderradio works much better in my experience (East/North Yorkshire area)

Have you tried it with an external aerial, or experimenting with the internal aerial location in the car? I have read its advisable before sticking down the internal aerial for good to try different locations, this can improve signal quality dramatically.

Yeah, tried moving the internal aerial and it seemed ok where I temporarily fitted it, but I get too many break up and general crap signal due to the roads I drive down. Then as I say, got an iPhone with wunderradio and it works much better.

So not tried it with an external aerial, but that just seems like hassle.

DAB changed my listening life and I would recommend it to anyone unless of course you are in a DAB blackspot like where I used to live in Nottingham. On the motorways it's perfect and I love listening to football commentaries on 5Live in something other than AM!

Do you get all the BBC stuff on WunderRadio? I can't make any sense of their site. If you search for BBC it just comes up with World Service but if you drill down through the UK it seems to have a lot more.

Thanks I will give it a go. Can't imagine using it in a car but it will certainly come in very handy.
#13
Just to add support :)

Wunderadio is absolutely fantastic, you couldn't wish for anything it hasn't already got (?) and yes, you get all the BBC stations (ALL - Radio 6,7, 5live xtra etc) talk sport, virgin etc etc etc

I have 7 screens of apps and I Wunderadio is the only one I paid more than 59p for :)

I have my phone talking to my car stereo over bluetooth so works really well.

Oh and Police radio is also a bonus, also on WunderRadio under scanAmerica.us

I have one in my car, mostly for 6 music as Radio 1 is unlistenable these days. It works well and I have never had much bother with coverage in N.I.

Bought one of these last Christmas and have used it a couple of times because I woanted to hear Planet Rock in the car. It's useless in the 20mile radius where I live (North East Kent) with the signal breaking up every few seconds so I've removed it. This was using the Internal ariel mounted properly, close to the roof of the vehicle on the passenger side of the windscreen. I wouldn't fork out the extra for an external ariel, that's more time and money than it's worth.
I'd wait another 3 years until the sginal strength is boosted, I assume the 2012 digital signal changeover will affect radios too. Living in the South East of England is a bummer for that...

As I said. Worst of both worlds.

Tried Wunder Radio, nice little app but reception in the main complete rubbish. Million times better for me on DAB but then I do live in SE England:)
