Hi big_boz,

Never heard of a DAB adapter ... how do they work? Attach to aux-in or something?

(Been reading about your dash 'rattle' ...
... poor show!)

I have a DAB interface in my Audi which is an interface which goes in the back of it that allows DAB to be played through (and tuned by) the factory head unit.

A mate has a PURE Highway which is excellent quality wise, but its something else to stick to the window......

hi could this be what your looking for on ebay ? 251045278033 thanks let me know

No, that is for a Home NAD Hifi tuner so that you can get it to recieve DAB signals. It is the same concept, so in the audi there was a box of tricks that plugged into the back of the head unit via an interface that had nothing in it, then an arieal that i hid behind one of the a-pillar covers (which could have been stuck to the windscreen.



Then it all worked like it was just normal radio.....

They'll put up a strange look, not knowing what you're talking about in the US.
DAB is an european standard.

They don't know it in korea either.

Can you get Long Wave on the radio in the new Rio? It's a shame they seem not to include it on car radios these days. I miss having the opportunity of boring my other half to death listening to Test Match special!
