    Instant FM Music RDX-155 Working in Ride Runner - Australia

    Hi All,

    To confirm InstantFM Music by ADS Tech (RDX-155) works out of the box in RR.

    Cheap cost me about $19 posted.

    Still to test in the car with an aftermarket antenna connected. Will update.

    Reception is Very Very good so far running on the laptop with the factory antenna given by ADS Tech. Picks up all the stations my other radio has troubles with.

    P.s. some configuration changes were needed in Windows 7 under sound to get it working. By default it was disabled and output to wrong speakers were selected.

    Bob

    Hi Bob,
    Interested to see where you bought this from? Haven't been able to find a cheap receiver for FM that's guaranteed to work on modern systems!
    If you can could you PM me a link?
    Thanks,
    Shambler

    cool, your going to probably need to solder your car antenna inside the unit. I am couple of weeks away till I have it running in the car to update.

    p.s. its also works with centrafuse out of the box

    Hmm. Might try an adapter first, really not keen on the idea of modifying my car in any way! Last car pc I did I put it all back to stock when I sold the car!

    you can give it ago but might have trouble with reception. Aluminum foil over the unit and cable where it joins will help sometimes.

    Excellent, thanks for the tip!

    I'll see how I go, if it proves to be too difficult I won't use it, it's only $15 or so!

    I've got my InstantFM device connected, I went into RRConfig and set the Radio to Silabs and then ran RR but when I click on Radio, I get a "Radio not Configured" message. I did not load any software from the ADSTech CD. The FM device is correctly listed my my Windows Device Manager - the driver auto installed.

    Anyone any ideas ?

    Thanks in advance


    EDIT: I am currently testing everything on my Win7 Laptop and it appears that InstantFM will only run on XP or Vista

    Did you install the silabs radio plugin when installing RR ? (Otherwise you're likely going to get that error). You can just install it by re-running the installer if you want.
    If anything enable debug in RRConfig and post a copy of your debug.txt file so we can see what's going on.

    I tried re-running the RideRunnerSetup.exe but there is no option to install Radio. I have downloaded the USBRadio.dll file but how do I install it manually ? I can't find anything really relevant in other posts.

    Thanks
