    I have a Pumpkin 13-RQ0278E Android-based touchscreen car stereo.

    Sometimes, I do not have a data connection so need to drop back to FM radio.

    The built-in FM radio app is a bit poo.

    What do people usually use?

    My device is not supported by NextRadio and Spirit FM is £5.64, so I don't want to spend that kind of money if it's not very good.

    I'm pretty sure Spirit won't work, as that's intended for certain known Snapdragon and Exynos devices AFAIK. Your Chinese Android car system a rather unknown Intel device, and I guess the FM radio hardware is something proprietary, and is just not supported by any third-party apps.

    Spirit FM is intended for AOSP custom ROMs, where there is no stock radio app usually, and requires root as well.
