Ipod (Would be music from my phone if I commuted in the Astra) on the morning commute, 6 Music on the evening journey home.

Ah, forgot about 6 Music, listen to that sometimes too!! :)

Talksport, 5 Live and the USB for banging out some ac/dc et al.

Incidentally, what's the maximum size USB you can use?

Annoyed that Team Rock got taken off DAB cause it used to be my choose for listening to music at work. Good selection of different types of rock and no adverts as well.

I've used a 32GB mini USB stick and it works perfectly - I don't know the max it will take though.

90% of the time, I use DAB and the only station I have 'preset' - Absolute 80s!! (Gives away that I'm 45 lol!).

10%, I stream music which is on my Samsung (just use intellilink's own bluetooth streaming, as I can't be bothered to plug the phone in via USB cable every time, for Android Auto).
