The pre-production model that Bosch designed and showed to smart had 5.1 out (centre, sub, stereo front and rear), composite video in and dual composite video out. Remote control input and noise cancelling microphone inputs.

However, smart said they didn't want all of these options so Bosch manufactured the stereo with none of these things. No hardware or software.

So, no.

Having delved into the inner workings of the Highline, I'd recommend not bothering. It's not a good unit.

The updated unit (after 07/2011, serial 0033000 onwards) was no different to the previous version except for a slight change in display hardware. Still no 5.1 surround etc.
