  1. DAB using existing head unit?

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi, The aerial on my Guilietta needs replacing. Rather than replacing it with a standard aerial, is it possible to buy some kind of DAB receiver / aerial and use it with the standard head unit? I don't particularly want to install a double DIN.. Thanks Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk

  10. Normal Aerial or Dab

    ICE & Blue&Me
