It's what Drive to Digital DIDN'T say...
Ed Vaizey refused to commit to any date for analogue switch off.
Tim Davie admitted that they had no DAB replacement for RDS-TA, the Travel Announcement system that's already available via FM in virtually 100% of all existing cars. He also refused to provide a figure for geographic DAB coverage that corresponds to the 97% population coverage, rather surprising as the conference was all about cars - and they move around !
Similar, there's nothing lined up to replace TMC, the Traffic Message Channel that's carried by Classic FM. So in the brave new DAB world your shiny new satnav will direct you straight into the back of the queue when Classic FM is switched off, even if you've shelled out £200 per car just so you can keep listening to your favourite stations in fewer places.
Absolute 60s and 70s will probably be only in mono.
WHOOPS ! Going backwards is supposed to be progress?
No wonder 8 out of 10 new cars still don't have DAB, and most cars don't even make it available, even as an option.
