Pure Highway H260DBi Radio now £89 reduced from £129 at Halfords in store or online.

I've just had one fitted to my car and it's brilliant. The Bluetooth features from your phone to the radio are great and it comes supplied with a in-car microphone. It doesn't skip a beat on Spotify.

The DAB is also great. It tunes itself automatically if you stray out of a particular DAB area so there is no loss in sound.

It's description is as follows:

This brilliant gadget works wonders with your iPod/iPhone too, just to make your life that much better.

So the radio is not £89 as DAB radio WITHOUT antenna doesn't make much sense.... I bought Kenwood for just under £200 and it got CD, 2 USB and everything else that this radio has and it came with DAB antenna. Heat anyway as it's discounted

​ if you bought a non dab radio would it come with an antenna?

I picked up one of these last year. It's a decent enough system, although with stock speakers I have to use the "loud" setting to get anything like a decent sound. Not ideal, but it works.

Also, unless you know what you're doing (or know someone who does) expect to pay around £100 for fitting including any adapters or aerials you may need. I've installed a couple of normal aftermarket stereos before, but I didn't have a clue with DAB and didn't want wires sticking out everywhere..

Bought this myself about 6 months ago from ebay for £79.99 and agree its a great bit of kit for the money., crystal clear sound and plenty of options,bluetooth usb port etc .i found the best aerial was a £114.99 magnetic one from halfords,(maybe its £19.99 now).
Wish i had gone down the dab route earlier but imagined they were expensive and a hassle to fit and dab signal wasn't great but i was wrong :).

The aerial I bought was the internal £19.99 one but that may have been ok because I've got a BMW 316 and the rear window is the FM aerial. I had it all fitted at Halfords. All in it cost £129 with the fitting and bits to connect it

No it wouldn't, but I think that the point is that the vast majority of cars will already have a FM/AM aerial fitted as standard. If you are already replacing a dead DAB unit there's no extra cost, but for most others there will be. Fair play to the OP for pointing this out.

Worth checking your reception before purchase you'll get zero reception round this way, not that fm is much better mind you

Do you know if this is steering wheel compatible?

I bought one of these for a similar price from Amazon earlier this year. I travel a lot on the road and find this awesome. Bluetooth function is great. Installation isn't difficult - I did mine myself using a glass mounted antenna on my screen following an easy guide on YouTube.

Hi mate on my BMW it isn't. When the bloke was fitting it he said u will lose the steering wheel bits for the radio only. Bit of a downer but don't know if this happens on every car

Yeah it's probably the antenna as per the link at the bottom of my post. I'm surprised how good they are to be honest!

That's basically why I got this one until I realised it Bluetooths straight from Spotify!

Thanks very much. I also have a BMW so will most likely be the same. Certainly struggling to find a suitable head unit. What car do you have?

It's a 316ti. Halfords have all the bits to fit it

I'm sure you just need a steering wheel control adapter?

Honestly they don't work with my car. I don't know about others tho so would be worth a try

You are right but some stereos are not compatible even with an adapter. Appears this one does not have this feature even with the adapter.

Looks like a great head unit though.

On my BMW, Mondeo and other cars with steering stalk control, I just bought the adapter kits.

Halfords never had them or could not get them. I bought the various head units off them and then ordered the adapters online.

Installing is a doddle.

From an earlier deal I ordered an ex display pioneer Bluetooth unit for £39. but when I went to collect, they told me they didn't have one, so they asked me if there was anything else I fancied. I had a look in one of their glass display cases that had some ex display units in, and I saw this Pure head unit for £45. they honoured the £39 due to them messing me about.
it didn't come with any accessories though, just the unit itself and the firing cage. just need to get a dab aerial and a mic, and I'm good to go.
I wonder how many more there are around the country for £45?

I had one of these and I thought it was pretty decent. Don't bother with expensive, sticky on, powered, interior aerials. They're not needed and can be a pain to install. Instead, Halfords do an external, magnetic one, looks like an RC car antenna, costs about £15 (maybe less). Will take a novice 10 mins to install (just push the wire behind interior trim and feed it through the boot seal), place it on your roof or rear wing and you'll get the best reception possible.
