And even if you did that, you would void your warrantee, and I don't think he will be able to embed the linux system between the time he gets back from Japan and driving to wherever he's going. I'm not sure how tech savy SVO is, but I'm thinking he doesn't want to go through the trouble of building his own amplifier, embedding the linux operating system into this new cd player, then slap on a bluetooth adapter all before driving back.

otherwise yes, if you want to buy a name brand Head Unit thats already got everything built into it, its gonna cost some more dollars. if you want to mess with everything yourself, it will cost less, but there is a higher margin for error.

Yea.. I drive a Jeep and I'm on a fuel economy site, but you just wouldn't understand... "It's a Jeep thing!" *Jeep Wave*
