With government plans to carry out a switch over in 2015, similar to that of digital TV, Car manufacturers have voiced there worries as to the likely success of the plan at it’s current rate.
Auto Express carried out a survey further validating this point; with the findings that many car manufacturers provided the reasoning that the DAB standard “isn’t yet high enough” for not having them within their cars. To be fair; it isn’t, with only high end cars having them fitted or offering the option, purely because no one would stump up the cash for them at a lower level.
There is a definite need for some intervention, with incentives and help, from the government here, but what’s the likelihood of that in current times? How much would you pay for a digital radio in your car, and do you think the changeover is necessary?
