    DAB Car Radio

    How come so many add on DAB boxes for car radios have been discontinued? is it because the too expensive? poor signal? any ideas?

    I think the likes of the BBC are discontinuing some of their DAB Radio stations....DAB Radio hasn't taken off as much as they'd hoped it would have.

    FM Radio still has a massive 70% odd of listeners.

    I've got JVC DAB in the car, get reception nearly everywhere I go, quality is far better than FM.

    No idea why you're finding them discontinued.

    if it was fitted to new cars, and was cheaper to have it would take off,
    never really understood why digital boxes for TV are so cheap, but digitial radios are so dear,
