About this deal
Disconnect the USB cable from Highway’s power adapter and plug it into an available USB port on your laptop. Like all our products, Highway 600 was designed and engineered in the UK by our expert engineering teams. This means you can count on great sound, impressive build quality and allows us to offer the reassurance of a three year warranty as standard. Note: If you don’t have a laptop, you will need to remove Highway’s antenna from your windscreen and upgrade the software using a PC running Windows 7 8 and 10.
Designed as an easy-fit solution for the millions of vehicles on the road worldwide without digital radio, you’ll find Highway 600 easy to install in your car, in most cases you won’t even need any tools, just a few simple steps and you’ll be up and running. The Pure Highway 400 is one of the best DAB/DAB+ car adapters available in 2017. It’s relatively easy to fit, looks smart and offers better sound quality than you’d get from FM. However, the reception isn’t as strong as it could be, and the adapter is fairly expensive. Alternative adapters to consider The Pure Highway 400 consists of three main parts: the receiver which you place inside the windscreen, and the antenna which is placed externally on the windshield, and finally wireless controller which is attached to the dashboard.Optionally, you can set up a Bluetooth connection to your phone to enable more features. This is definitely worth doing because it means you can stream music from your phone, including with Spotify, Deezer or any other music streaming service. It also provides access to your phonebook to make and receive calls through the car audio system, hands-free, with impressive quality. Whilst connected to the pure Go mobile application, the Go button can be used as the `hot key` to trigger your chosen music on demand service and identify music. The music will be streamed to your Highway product using Bluetooth. Can I connect my phone to multiple Bluetooth devices including Highway (i.e. existing hands free car kit and Highway 400)?
In some cases there may be conflict with existing in car Bluetooth systems for iPhone users. You will notice Highway will play for a minute or so, then the car will take control, so the audio from Highway goes silent.If I had to mention negative points about it, I'd have to say that although it's not bad, it's not quite as sensitive as my old system. That did however have a proper 1/4 wave external aerial, so it's just physics - an outside aerial will always give better results. Also, as a necessary consequence of being battery powered, the controller goes into standby after so many seconds, and also you don't get any programme (SI) information. It does do traffic information (according to the manual), but I've yet to hear any. Bluetooth : A2DP (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile), AVRCP (Audio Video Remote Control Profile) 1.4 or above, OPP (Object Push Profile) You will be asked ‘ Do you want to upgrade all?‘Press ’Y’ and then press the ‘Return’ button on your laptop .
If this setting is not available, to carry on using Highway you’ll need to tell your car to forget your iPhone. How many phones will Highway support in hands-free mode? The wireless display is powered by 2x AAA batteries which are provided in the box. Based on our commuter user case and the default 15s display time out the battery life would be around 8months. The easiest way to enjoy DAB digital radio, Bluetooth music streaming from your mobile and hands-free calling in your car, this clever audio adapter is simple to fit and works seamlessly with your existing in-car audio system.
You can either hook up the aux cable or choose an FM frequency for the Pure 600 to transmit over. It defaults to 87.60 FM but can be configured however you choose. Using FM worked fine for us in testing – just tune the existing in-car FM radio to that frequency of the Highway 600 and you’re all set - but an aux-input is a better bet if possible, since it's not prone to interference. Note: Once paired with your Bluetooth device, Highway will automatically reconnect whenever it is in range. How long will the batteries of the wireless controller last?
