    I would need to see a photo that more accurately shows how large the unit is, but this might be a good fit for my GT Cruiser considering the weird 11/2 DIN radio Chrysler used.

    This is pretty cool, too bad it doesn't have an internal battery so you can drive without having wires hanging down...

    Also, what's this about?

    "This device has not been authorized as required by the rules of the Federal Communications Commission. This device is not, and may not be, offered for sale or lease, or sold or leased, until authorization is obtained."

    If they can't sell it, why offer it for sale?

    I don't think it is for sale yet, there's no link for 'Add to Cart' or 'Find a Store'. I'd guess they're expecting approval within the next two months and have put this on the site in advance.

    I thought you needed special windshield glass for cars with HUD?

    It comes with a clear film that you stick to the glass to project the information onto.
