On DAB (digital radio, 174-240 MHz) it slightly influences the signal which can only be observed on a very weak signal. I did the reception test on my Alpine CDE-136BT car radio with a Swiss transmitter on channel 12C (227.360 MHz), 135 km away.
Interesting phenomenon for FM: when plugging in the DVR207, there is a lot of noise which disappears after a couple of seconds. It seems that a suppression capacitor inside the car charger does some good work in reducing the interference coming from the DVR207.
You said the cable you ordered is much better than the original.
Which one has the suppression capacitor? (the original, or the new AliExpress one?) or both?
Did you plug into your Cigarette Lighter socket or did you hard wire it to your car power hidden from view? (I'd like to hide it) Should I buy a female Cigarette lighter wire adapter, or crack open the adapter and wire from there. I'd like to keep the spare cable for when I go on road trips in my friends cars.
It seems the updated DVR-207GS model has the FM noise as well:
I haven't bought one yet so I'd like to better understand what to expect and buy all the right stuff.
EDIT: I just saw this: viewtopic.php?f=18&t=894
"DVR207 only: My car radio does not work / Radio interference issues occur
It's known that DVR charger may cause radio interference issues, you can try to change the charger to another or ask seller to ship you a better one. The seller has told that units shipping from 16 March 2013 will be packed with new charger, which should fix the problems."
