I've been using it in my car, via the headphone socket/aux in, mainly to listen to Test Match Special.
It works pretty well, although obviously it does depend on the strength of the local DAB signal. Generally, I get a more consistent signal than I do from BBC iPlayer radio on my iPhone, even in a 4G/LTE area (although I do love the BBC iPlayer...) There aren't a lot of presets, but typically I only listen to a handful of DAB stations anyway. It is a pity there is no pause/ record option, but as a replacement for Radio 4 LW (available in my last car, but not he current one) it works just fine.
The aux-in is in my armrest, with a handy power socket next to it - this means I can charge it while playing if required, although there is less interference if you can avoid doing this.
Ive used the Pure Highway previously, sound and signal from the Pure 2500 seem to be at least as good for a lot less effort, not least because the whole thing fits tidily in my arm-rest. I can adjust the volume from my steering wheel.

The gorgeous retro design is hard to resist, but the TEAC fails to deliver an engaging and musical performance at this price
The all-round ability of the Luna 7 means it should sit well with a very wide range of systems
A poor implementation of a neat concept, with poor sound to boot. Disappointing
