I've just had the Nextbase model 380GW currently being promoted by Toyota installed by my dealer. First impressions are good, mount is very neat and very easy to remove the unit from the mount.

I've also purchased an additional mount from Nextbase for £15 inc delivery so the unit can be fitted in my other vehicle. DAB radio seemed to be OK ( admittedly I only listened to R4 on the short drive home.)

Got a Nextbase which I've hard-wired into the accessory fusebox - mounted to the left of the mirror and cable runs down the passenger side. It's affecting DAB reception.

It's fine much of the time but is much more prone to dropping out. I can be parked up and DAB is breaking up... if I unplug the dash cam and the DAB signal turns perfect.... plug it back in and the signal goes Dalek again.

The weird thing is the DAB volume also keeps going quiet with the Dashcam plugged in. Very odd - I thought Digital signal either 'worked' or 'didn't' with no in-between... but again if I park up with it quiet then unplug the dash cam, volume returns to normal. Plug it back in and volume drops again.

Tried various fixes - ferrite rings etc - also swapped to a different power supply and cable and a different camera - no change!

I wired my Nextbase 512G into the fusebox and then looked at fitting a rear one, bit of a pig. So bought a Nextbase Duo HD which has a front facing and a rear facing telephoto camera. Plugged straight into same wire, a bit of shifting L to R and up and down and I'm well happy :)
