Default DAB

Can anyone recommend a good DAB aerial? I've a Kenwood touch screen thingy and it uses the screen mount one and it's more than useless. I'd like to try an avoid a mag mount as I'd be worried about it coming off or some **** stealing it.

To be fair I might upgrade the head unit to the later one with Andriod Carplay.

Thanks

That one from Halfrauds looks the same as the one that came with my Kenwood unit and it's been excellent, never had any issues, maybe a fitment or position issue.

^^ Agreed.

I've been through a few (windscreen replacement etc) and always been good for me. The problem with DAB is its more on/off than traditional FM where there's a variety in reception quality. Some areas are obviously better than others for signal so can drop out but that's no different to anything that obtains signal from a transmitter especially of the receiver is moving!

The original one I bought cost me 30 from the stereo provider but the replacements have always been from ebay, cost a tenner only and been exactly the same with the same reception.
