Hi all
Any boddy know anything about this module for upgrade the existing receiver?
Its seem like a complet receiver, but without audio amplifier. The sound and data is transferred to the FM receiver via something like bluetooth.

see www.t-online-shop.de/starwaves and www.starwaves.de :)
It's the same receiver just with another label on it.
The data is transferred via RDS (Radio Data System) to the existing radio.

Is that an allowed "reproduction" of the starwaves truck-box? Or is it a "chinese way" copy?

Edit: Hmm, after a litle bit research i think its almost the other way round. Starwaves ordered maybe some of the boxes OEM and put on only their stickers?

Hi Stephan,

as far as I know it's an allowed reproduction.

Anybody knows if this receiver (or the Starwaves Truck-box) work well while we're driving a car??
In SW, a car is a type of "bunker" for the waves... and it produces a lot of interferences...

What's cheaper, the Starwaves Truck-box or the "chinese" ?

have a look at this: http://de.youtube.com/watch?v=GuWAdaSKReY
Of course you have to use an external antenna.

I haven't seen the chinese box anywhere so cannot tell you what's the price, the Starwaves box is currently available for 289 Euro at http://www.t-online-shop.de/starwaves .

Here are some links for you: http://forum.mysnip.de/read.php?8773,510955 http://knallfunke.de/drm/empfaenger/truckbox/index.htm www.starwaves.de
But note that the Box is not able to receive DAB transmissions in AAC+ (DABplus). (And I won't hope to get much support 'cause the company is currently in a... bad mood).
