Rumours abound that the Government may well be getting ready to switch transmission from analogue to digital and now the race is on to get our car radios adapted for digital radio.
Nextbase, the UK’s market-leading automotive technology manufacturer has just released the Adapt DAB250 Adaptor which is said to be the perfect plug & play DAB+ radio solution for your vehicle.
John who spends countless hours drivingwas keen to put the DAB250 Adaptor through its paces and this is what he thought of it:
‘I feel that with so many home DAB radio listeners, isn’t it about time that we could all enjoy the same reception quality as we do at home?
I headed off to my car and mounted the adaptor on the dashboard although alternatively I could just as easily have chosen the windscreen mounting system.
Featuring a clear 2.4inch LCD screen, which shows a selection of radio stations and information with buttons for easy menu selection and playback which also automatically selects the best available FM car frequency it was clear that this had been designed with the driver in mind.
Whilst driving I enjoy listening to both BBC Radio 2 and Radio Scotland and found the reception on both to be first class. I was even able to lock in my favourite radio stations and with a clock at hand and date settings it had everything I needed.
I really enjoyed using this plug and play digital DAB adaptor, it’s really simple to use and it automatically chooses the best vacant FM car frequency – I would certainly be keen to have one permanently in my car and it would make a really popular Christmas gift for any driver.
The new Nextbase DAB250 DAB Adaptor (RRP £99) is available from Halfords.
