The Good Very portable. Very simple to use.

The Bad Works poorly indoors. Requires headphones. Display is a bit dim.

The Bottom Line We can't fault the Bush Walker's simplicity or portability, but it's still a DAB+ radio that is only of interest to those who spend a lot of time outdoors.

Design

Bush's latest portable DAB+ radio isn't just called the Bush Walker because it's a funny product name.

Well, OK, we're pretty sure that the slightly amusing nature of the name has a pretty big part to play in why this particular radio is so defined. But it's also because it's an incredibly small and light DAB+. We've seen portable pedometers larger than the Bush Walker. Bush's release notes describe it as "not much bigger than a matchbox" and it's accurate enough, with a central set of squishy directional buttons sitting below a simple backlit LCD display. The rear of the Bush Walker is large enough for the two AAA batteries that power the unit, and not a whole lot else besides.

Features

As DAB+ radios go, the Bush Walker is understandably on the simple side. It allows for four quick preset stations, along with scrolling through a list to select all other stations, can display RDS information (where it's broadcast) and can quickly mute the incoming radio.
