Yup. Thats the right price for BU-353.
Usually Phone GPS would not be ideal solution to integrate it in CF. And as far as i know CF doesn't support it that way.
BU-353 is very well compatible with CF. and lots of users on mp3car and fluxmedia using it.

gigy :

Check this link. Its from HK. Surprising that a HK site is charging $3 shipping. Usually HK postal services are cheapest in the world. Anyways I think $3 is nominal.

Why do we bother about tweeters firing into glass in front only? why nobody talks about it for the rears. after all many of sit in rear seats also when driven around.

Smearing will happen in either case. It is just that most of us who drive notice the front tweeters more also with the tweeters behind the listener imaging is not really something we can control can we?

Install both the woofer and tweeter on the rear door. Many cars allow this and some like the ANHC and Swift can be modded for this since atleast they have rear door woofer pods. You want the image coming from in front of the rear passenger. Keep in mind that the tweeter so installed will muddy the sound for the front passenger as the tweeter will be close to the front passenger's ears.

Since the rear passengers reall are not driving or navigating they could use headphones via a system such as the ones below.
In-Car IR Wireless Headphones IR-307 Wireless headphone China products
Car Headphones at Crutchfield.com

if you are willing to mod a little you could even wire up the rear seats with headphones and a small amplifier.

I suspect the Linea and Punto rear door pads have a tweeter location, just like the front door, near the latch handle. If mounted there, the tweeter would be canted back, not disturbing the front stage.

Of course, the rear door mid-bass location in these cars seem to be 4", going by the perforations in the pad! :-(

I see only one RGB Monitor out. so unless you use the HDMI port for a HDMI screen and the RGB 15 pin connector for a RGB screen it shoudl not. Then again I know diddly squat about computers. There is also a 'digital' monitor out below the 15 pin output can this possibly be an option for a 3rd monitor?

Hi Nisarg,
Nice buy, zotac is really good barring for the cost of the mobo, I am currently using one as an HTPC at my home. Pls review how good is it in the car.
Also where did you order it from? I tried real hard here, but all I could get was the one with onboard PSU.

One would expect it to be. The HDMI is expected to come out of either a different chip or a different section of the display chip.
