    HQCT Module in Australia

    I am wondering if anyone has used the HQCT Module in Australia? Will it work in Australia? If anyones used it how successful was it?

    I'm wondering if this is my last step required for a full headunit replacement

    Just hack a Silabs. Silabs are so much cheaper, its available in Australia, you can hook your car antenna up to it and the audio is digital via the usb not output/input style giving you 2 audio sources to deal with. The HQCT IMO is pretty overrated. Thats my 2 cents

    It accepts a car antenna but you have to solder it in. You will find a thread with info on this here if you search.

    Problem with the Silabs one is (after looking at it), is that is is only FM... i would like to keep both AM and FM... (never know when i'll want AM... even though i mainly listen to FM...)
