Malcolm, Sunniside Gadget lover

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Really easy to set up and install and great choice of stations to listen to
Bad points:
Sudden drop out of reception in local black spots. Signal can changed dramatically just driving along a road as the the surrounding buildings change and when passing side roads. Even if not required when installed ensure that the aerial cable is full extended as coiling surplus severely affects reception

Mark, LEEDS Gadget lover

Score 2.0/10
Good points:
Easy to set up and use. Has the stations that I like to listen to.
Bad points:
Poor reception for DAB, a decent external aerial may fix this though.
Biggest problem was the fact this was the second Highway I have had, being a replacement for my first which died under warranty, this one was also a source of problem, in that it did not like to boot on the first go in a morning, it seemed to be at it's worst when cold and damp, after a few goes it seemed to be OK. And finally to top it all the thing died once and for all just outside the 2 year warranty, as I have all the kit for pure and I can't do with local radio or AM, looks like I'm going to have to buy another Pure Highway, reluctantly....

Manufacturer's Description

In-car Digital Radio with FM Transmitter

Highway is a unique, easy to fit in-car digital radio that also enables you to listen to your iPod/MP3 player.

Powered from the in-car power socket and easily attached to your windscreen with a removable flexible mount (just like sat nav) Highway receives digital radio stations and transmits them to your car radio on a free FM frequency. Simply tune your car radio to the FM frequency shown on Highway’s display to listen to digital radio or your iPod/MP3 player.

Digital radio brings you more stations including BBC 7, BBC Five Live Sports Extra, Planet Rock and theJazz. National AM stations such as talkSPORT, Absolute Radio and BBC Five Live are also broadcast in crisp, clear digital-quality audio.

Highway is packed with great, easy-to-use features such as ReVu to pause and skip back through live digital radio, quickSCAN to find free FM transmission frequencies, and 4 FM transmission presets (synchronize these with your car radio’s FM presets to make avoiding interference a breeze). You can even take Highway from the car when your journey’s over and carry on listening using headphones. (Headphones not included.)

Whether you want to enjoy the digital stations in-car that you do at home, listen to your iPod/MP3 player on the move, or just discover digital radio, Highway brings a lot more entertainment to your journey.
