    I want one. How much to ship it to Montreal Canada? Will it work with any car (Mazda MX6 1993)? Can you supply prices in US dollars please.

    Will it control both front and back windows (defrost) as well? Also, will the kit come with a detailed instruction guide?

    I am thinking of using only this digital interface and removing my analogue heater/cooler controllers so I want to know if this will allow me to do exactly the same functions.

    i am interested in one of course

    I still have bunch of questions though. I am wondering alot about the servos. I have never worked with them before. Am i hooking the servos up some how to the existing HVAC controlls or do they get hooked up to the actual device that they are controlling?

    Is it true that you are not including any servos?

    Its better to hook the servo to the actual device (Flaps) the existing HVAC controls .. this way you can use a low torque servo and wont stress it.

    Sorry but here in India servos are very expensive

    Another question I want to cleared out before I buy one : if servo's are going to control the flaps, doesn't the original steering for the actuators interfere ? What's going to happen if they do ? eg: In the software you set a temp of 20 degrees, but the original knob is set to 25 degrees ... The servo cannot put the original knob to 20 C, it only works the other way doesn't it?

    I am not getting your point here ... ? See if you set the unit to cutoff at 20 deg then it will cutoff when the cabin temp reaches 20 deg. this is controlled electronicly by the unit .. all that the servo does in this case is adds hot air to the air that is if you want it. so its got nothing to with the cuttoff temp.

    Do you disable the original controls then? If your original control is set to 25C and you set the cutoff temp to 20C with your software, the motor is set for 25C (controlled by the original control), and the servo wants to position the motor for 20C isn't it? So the original control and servo are fighting each other or am I wrong here ?

    How can u use the original controls and also this unit ... ??

    I dont think you understand how this unit works ... The heat servo has got nothing to do with the cutoff temp setting.. the cutoff will cutoff the compresser at a perdefined temp and the heat servo is used only if you want to add heat to the air flowing ... get it .. !
