Help me out here as having read reviews they speak of and show an ogre external magnetic aerial (not supplied) mounted to the roof c/w cables running around door frames.

Does the unit require an external aerial or not?

Also, from what I understand, working off the in car cigarette lighter for power, the unit broadcasts DAB via an available FM channel to your car radio? Thanks.

I had one of these before the new car had DAB. Worked great. It did come with an external ariel but I never needed to use it. Quality of sound was good. I travel across the country and had no issues with it, except for the normal DAB blackspots.

To those that have this.. does it have to be fitted to the windscreen?

I'm James Nffc bro
It's a great bit of kit never had a problem

What does this connect to apart from cigarette lighter? How does it work.

OOS in warehouse & stores please expire, really wanted one too

Brilliant bit of kit, had mine for 2 trouble free years. Comes with power adapter and roof mounted ariel with plenty of cable length. Had the pure highway before this and it didn't come close to the quality and ease of use of the sonichi.

Reserved one on line this morning, got an email tonight telling me it's cancelled as they have none and will amend the website advert. So it appears to be OOS they stated they did not expect anymore in. Shame that as wanted one.

Yes the same thing happened to me, very annoying and not the first time Halfords have pulled this stunt. Very unprofessional!

Not had a cancellation email as yet

Not had a cancellation email as yet



Just called local Halfords and they haven't got any stock 'as of yet' despite reservation email saying available to collect from 1PM today. Expecting an email cancellation any time now. These halfords deals are rarely in-stock and usually a wast of time!

You must of got the 'ONE' they had in stock. oO
I still not got any 'available for collection' confirmation about my order yet!

Picked mine up yesterday as well - waste of time!
There are two windscreen mounts (supposed to be one) but no cradle to attach it to the mount
Turn it on and the backlight illuminates, then nothing else happens - no text on the display

Local store were useless when I asked if it was available for collection. I contacted Halfords live chat and they said they have to check their warehouse. Didn't get back to me as promised. I think I'm gonna look for something a bit better. The item looks a bit cheap and to be honest there are better quality all be it a bit dearer. You do tend to get what you pay for.
Or in this case you don't! oO

Sure enough got cancellation email today 3 days after placing order. Halfords stock control is a joke but on the up side the item looks a bit cr@ppy anyway
