As long it has FM radio
Do you reckon this will be any good? I use an Argos bush one which isn’t bad. Not sure this would be a upgrade. My bush one is only for aux
My aerial is broken but the radio receives FM. Will I be able to listen to the radio with this and alternatively stream from my phone via Bluetooth?

Not sure about this bit of the description - Easy & fast way to update your audio system without replacing it. Steam music, DAB & FM radio stations from your phone. Does that mean everything is through your phone? What if you drive through a bad phone signal area?
From the description, I would say that this connects to your car stereo by transmitting on the FM band, so you can pick it up by tuning your radio to its output frequency. You could also connect it with a stadard 3.5mm stereo jack connector cable (supplied) if your car radio has the relevant socket.
It has a built-in DAB radio, and it will also connect to your phone using Bluetooth allowing you to stream music on your phone to your car radio via this unit
The description could be clearer, but in a nutshell that is what it should do
Good price. Looks pretty much identical to the one we got from Amazon. Have a search on there for "5 in 1 DAB" for a few different varients and reviews

Aerial will be the DAB windscreen stick on type

I think you need to find the aerial wire that goes into original radio and either use that - or buy a splitter - and plug that into the side of this unit. It's a simple job if you can access the back of your existing radio - in my car I've no idea how I'd do that as it's all sort of built in.

Unless you have an aux socket to connect this device then the DAB feature seems pretty pointless as you will never get DAB quality sound.... yes you will get a few extra stations but you could always do that with your phone through a cheap bluetooth fm transmitter.
Same spec models as this are sub £10 on amazon/ebay. Works well.

Any chance of a link? Preferably one you recommend?
On Amazon, search for "FirstE 5 in 1 Car DAB/DAB+ Radio Portable FM Transmitter"
Its exactly the same as this Aldi one, with good reviews and costs £31 more

Thanks OP, just bought one (I have an Aux socket but no DAB yet)
Been looking for something like this the pure 400 series is similar to this and costs over £100 which is why I held back. This is an easy buy.
Is the DAB antenna supplied?
Love a bit of DAB
Lost the love for DAB when Planet Rock reduced their coverage so will stick with my trusted parrot for Bluetooth. Good deal for those who want one though.

If you've no AUX in, and you don't want to splash out on a new stereo with one, buy a wired fm modulator like this

Got one in the wifes car, hidden behind the stereo, works nearly as well as a proper aux port, with next to no interference.
£60 for identical model on Amazon so hot from me

This is a Baun though so your Baum might have been a cheap knockoff!
Hi all

Please can someone help me out. I have an old Punto mk2b with the standard built in stereo cd player, would this work with my car? Does the sound come from the unit or would I have to link it up to my speakers? Is it powered by cigarette lighter or does it need hard wiring?

I'm useless at this stuff

Thanks in advance

A slip of the fingers. Basic principle still applies as they're not effected by a missplaced letter
If you're happy, you buy it. My lesson with the telly still stands. With or without an "M"

If the built in stereo has an FM radio, then yes you can use this
It can take power from the cigarette socket

Love a bit of DAB


IF they work properly and they rarely do
And there seems less stations every year
Certainly the ones that interest me classic rock, talk, classical music - are dropping like flies

yes it would, remember this has fm transmitting function meaning that it transmit fm signals locally within your car, for example you would set the device to transmit at 87.5 mhz and press play on the device, as soon as you tune into 87.5 on your car, you will start recieving the fm signal from the device into your car speakers.... its basically like tuning into any fm station but this is just local and for your car only.
Confused about the aerial for this, does it require one to get dab stations, doesn’t look like an aerial is in the box?
If you look at the one on Amazon that looks identical, it comes with a stick-on window aerial. You could replace with a different one if you are in a weak signal area
Also says it "features" an active aerial

3 year warranty should it not work as intended.
Interested in this for £35. Does it come with aux cable? How would I power this? Does it come with something that plugs into the cigarette lighter? If not, how is it powered?
Yes, you can see the aux cable on one of the pictures. It also comes with a twin USB adaptor for the ciggy socket
I got one this week off ebay that fits in ciggy lighter and transmits through fm like this one. Have to say the stick on dab aerial is a bit naff and doesn't really work. Ordered some leads now that will link it to the car aerial now and hopefully that will give it decent reception. Have to say getting the right lead was a minefield. the connection to it was a smb male and this has to connect to the fakra aerial lead at the back of the stereo. Touch wood it will work.
This is the one I bought. Will be good once i get reception properly sorted!

The receiver picks up Dab via the included antenna, then sends a fm signal to your chosen fm frequency on your car radio (eg not the same freq as radio 1 or it will clash) . You can Bluetooth in from your phone and play music, make hands free calls etc as it’s speaking to your phone and transmitting to your car radio. The dab element comes from the included antenna which is free.
Wow. A silicon choose. Heat tho
Clearly too many questions with this thing based on this thread and nobody seems to have a definitive answer. I've got a our highway and whilst expensive it it excellent. There is an aerial for that and you need to stick it to the windscreen, it's quite a substantial thing. This makes me question the reliability of this one picking up a god dab signal
Cheap version of the pure highway 400 ?
My experience of FM transmission method on other units is one of sub-par sound quality.
