    Hello!

    I have just installed a Sony Head unit in my car and the radio signal is pretty aweful. I had the same problem about a year ago with a Pioneer unit. I thought it was just the unit, but now, I'm thinking not.
    The radio works perfectly with the standard Symphony II unit.

    Has anyone else come across this problem before?

    Cheers

    Sam

    You need to make sure the on board aerial amplifier is getting 12v or it won't turn on and you'll have the **** reception that you are experiencing
