DAB Pure Highway

DAB Pure Highway

Here’s a nice idea – a handy way of getting DAB in your car without having to replace your existing radio. The Pure Highway is a DAB radio that sticks to your windscreen much like a satnav unit – it’s a DAB receiver that re-transmits DAB stations onto FM, so that your existing card radio can tune in to DAB. You can also pause and rewind live DAB. Powered from the car’s 12V socket / 2 x AA batteries.
20 DAB station. Easy to install and remove from your car

Available for around £70 – Check Availability on our Pure Highway Review page.
