have just ordered a usb dongle for DAB radio, and a dongle for DVB-T freeview. fitted a focal ibus 20 underseat sub last week as well, which has transformed the sound in the car. fits under the drivers seat, but sticks into the rear footwell, but seeing as how my seat is all the way back and noone can sit behind me, its not an issue and cant be seen.
have only just ordered the DVB-T dongle, so havent tried that, but the dab dongle came last week and needs a better aerial, so ive ordered a windscreen glass mount one that according to one of JabawokJayUK's posts works well (even if it is a little unsightly).
gonna use the same aerial for both the dab and dvb-t dongles, so have spent the last few hours working out which splitters and adapters i need. the aerial is smb female, the only smb splitter i could find was all female, so i had to order an smb male to smb male for that. the dab stick uses mcx, so a mcx male to smb male so it can attach to the splitter. the tv card uses regular pal tv coax aerial, so an smb male to tv aerial adapter was also ordered (hardest adapter to find out of the lot).
the dab dongle is not meant for dab specifically but is a pc freeview stick using a chipset that can be used for radio frequencies, and someone made an app and driver for android so it can be used on android using Wavesink. example video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3VuiZeMIP7M
the dvb stick is the t230 which is a full sized stick, not the small ones meant specifically for android. works with the padtv app. example video using the same stick and app im gonna use https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aJ6GiNXkZFI
even though im used to android on my phone, it still suprises me what can be done on these android headunits.
i wouldnt use dvbt or dab on my phone, but in a car setting, it makes it very cheap and very easy to upgrade and add features. on a regular unit, adding dab or dvb wouldve either bumped up the initial purchase price into the near £1000 mark, or the optional add ons wouldve been too expensive. adding dab and dvb to this unit has cost me a total of no more than £35.
dont intend on using the dvb regularly tbh, but its nice to have. have been toying with the idea of adding a webcam for a dashcam, just dont feel the need atm
