Android Head Unit - DAB Issues
 
Hi All,

I have an Android head unit installed, which I had in my previous car, however iím struggling to get anything out of the DAB as the signal just isnít there.

I had the unit in my last car with no issues at all however in that I had a powered external antenna replacing the OEM one. Obviously in the Honda I cant do that (Without drilling holes in the body which iím not going to do!) as the aerial is in the rear window.

Iíve tried a powered windscreen film antenna (from autoleads) but thats giving me pretty much nothing (Iíve tried two different dongles just to be sure) so am keen to see what any of you have done to get a good signal as Iím really missing my DAB!

Cheers

I had the same issue, windscreen antennas suck, bought an external antenna like this:

Ran it to the boot and it comes out above the tailgate on the roof, great signal only dropouts are tunnels and low dab areas.

I'll admit, I wasn't expecting it to look too good but actually that looks fine. Thanks very much for that!
