Hi, from what I can tell it only transmits FM frequencies, not receive them. So it won't give you any additional radio stations.

The only way that would work is if you have a radio app on your phone, connect it to the transmitter via bluetooth, and then connect the transmitter to the radio via FM.

To do what you want (receive more stations) you need a BAND EXPANDER. Just search ebay or amazon for "FM band expander" there's hundreds listed from a tenner up.

I know Steve but it is the fitting of it that puts me off

Fitting might be a little bit more involved but I have just ordered a pure radio 300 off ebay a little more expensive at 49.95 but they have good reviews

Well I put it in the car and Bingo it works a treat. I even just stuffed the antenna in the glove box and it made no difference to the reception at all. Happy Happy Happy:p

Be having one of those then. I dislike the idea of taking the original ICE out so this should do fine. Just got to figure out how to get the miracast working now!

You plug it into the 12v socket, select a free FM frequency on the radio and there you go. Simples. The instructions are easy to follow. It plays through the radio so your so you Aux jacks are free for other things
