    The ability to stream internet radio through my car stereo is one of life's little pleasures for me. I've been using Xiia Live (Lite) for a couple of weeks now and I’m quite impressed that it offers all of the stations that I regularly listened to on my previous phone. However, on a 30 minute drive to work, the feed drops around 10 to 15 times which makes it virtually un-listenable.

    Previously I listened to the same stations over the same network (3 UK) on a Nokia N95 using the Nokia Internet Radio app and it would drop twice at the most during the same journey. What I’d like to know is - is it the Xiia Live app that is at fault or is it the Desire’s failure to hold onto a signal?

    I guess I would be able to answer the first question myself by trying a different app such as RadioTime, which I will get around to doing this week but I would still like to know if anyone else streams on the move and gets the same problem? Listening at home over Wi-Fi I don’t get any drop outs so I’m kinda thinking it’s the phone’s fault.

    I walk and listen to the streaming radio, and I have tried Xiia and streamfurious. Xiia used to be OK dropping occasionally but since the update a few days ago its become unusable for me.

    I dont think it helps that im on T-Mobile which I find to have poor coverage even here in NW London.
