          Just wish it was easier to write a RR plugin for it, without Dab support in the US its not possible for Mitch or Guino to do it.

          The Module is a work of brilliance though, i've had one built by nrgizerbunny running in my car for about 6 months now and its awesome, its just let down by having to run an external app at the moment.

              If you care to tell me how we do that then i'd be more than happy to give all the access you need tomorrow as my wife has the car till the morning and my module is in it.

              Thanks btw.

                Is AM support impossible to add to this device?

                I already have a HQCT -e version and this is sweet, but with the move to digital radio soon in Australia, this would be an alternative replacement.

                  No the module doesnt support AM. Currently this project does not support DAB+ like what you have in Australia.

                  DAB+ would most likely have the AM station you are intrested in.

                    Hi Kosti,

                    Unfortunately the Venice 5/5.1 does not support AM only FM DAB and DAB+ (DAB+ only supported in the 5.1 module and above).

                    Have a look at all the digital radios in OZ i don't think any support AM, however i have a feeling the AM stations are broadcasting in digital anyway so problem solved maybe.

                      no AM support i'm afraid.
                      as soulR said, most stations will probably transmit in DAB anyway, have a check. This is certainly the case in the UK.

                      Mitch, I'll gladly take you up on your offer if I may, I have a spare module, just tell me what to do!

                        Does it support the newer and improved Venice 7 module too?
                        It looks like Venice 7 is a plug-in replacement for Venice 5.1 and 5.0.
                        Venice 7 has improved sensitivity, stereo separation and lower power consumption than Venice 5.1.
                        Where do you buy the Venice modules?
                        Is there any schematic and BOM for the motherboard?

                          here's the link to the schematics.

                          not too sure about the venice7, the modules come from old radios.
