    I am very interested, but would like to know more about the antenna set-up as reception has always been the biggest problem and still is. My current PURE HIGHWAY Tuner/Receiver set-up is constantly losing signal, even though I have an external standalone ariel. So obviously I would like the convidence to know this is going to work, before I commit.

    Do you have TV in the car, on a 230 the antenna is in the front screen, it could be there and unused at the top

    Hi Malcolm, I don't have a TV, just the button. I've sent a query directly to the Command contact. When I get further info, I will share it :)

    Hang on a minute, If I have a spare ariel, surely I could utilise that for my existing set-up. Sounds like we have a discussion for the Xmas dinner :)

    If it is in the screen, when I had my screen replaced the guy said they all have them, if this is the case its a matter of picking up the screen wires, use an amp and that should be perfect, but again as long as the bit is in the screen

    A very efficient response from Command:

    The in2digi device uses either the cars existing built in antenna and an
    antenna amp or an internally mounted small active antenna.
    The reception we find is very good. Comparable to the factory DAB
    installations.
    Sadly though the in2digi system wont work for your car as yours is D2B not
    MOST based im afraid.


    Back to the Pure Highway for me :-(
