Desire for in-Car DAB Radio Ranks High With UK Drivers

Parking assistance also rankly highly

LONDON � A recent survey of more than 1200 people conducted by What Car?,�comprising those predominantly interested in cars and also those interested in technology, reveals that the ability to connect your smartphone to your car and parking assistance are the top technologies UK car buyers seek.

Bluetooth, satellite navigation and DAB radio also ranked high on buyers’ lists of priorities.

The bottom-ranked technologies were the ability to watch TV in your car, wireless charging and Lane Departure Warning systems.

The same survey showed several other safety technologies, such as speed limit warnings and blind spot monitoring, were ranked far down the list. This supports the findings of an earlier survey, which revealed UK drivers would rather choose a digital radio in their car over life-saving safety tech.
