Finally got my Kogan DAB car converter. Here are some initial thoughts and some pics as well.
Setting it up was fairly straight forward - runs off the cigarette lighter. There is a little issue with the antenna - you do need to stick it to the window, but it has two little strips that hang off it - it will leave a weird look on your windscreen. The antenna cord is a little long, but I found if I keep the visors up, I can keep it nice and tidy. I do have some velcro straps around my apartment. I put it in the right corner to stop it from obscuring the view.
This picture shows which side I attached it to, and the cords running out of it.
The device goes on as soon as you start the car up, and the first time it starts, does a scan - found all 61 Sydney channels, so no issues there. It has limited information, and only displays station name, if its a DAB or DAB + channel and what genre it is. A little disappointing in this regard - my pocket Laser DAB radio has more information.
The buttons are in a little inconvenient position if you want to switch stations - would’ve preferred buttons on the front.
Since my Commodore doesn’t have a proper Aux IN 3.5mm plug, I had to use the FM TX function, which works quite well, quite clear on 87.6FM. There is a bit of ground loop when you change DAB stations and it locks into the chosen station.
Overall, not bad, if you want to get into DAB at a reasonable price (I got it for $49, but usually goes for $109), it’s a good option. But there are some areas that a 2nd version could look at.
