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.

I think this might be helpful:

The first few pictures look exactly like the one in our '13. (I didn't read through the whole thing though.) I checked on the mini electric cars and micro green cars. smart USA website and found the surround sound option is separate from the Navigation option so I don't know whether yours would have that or not. Sounds like it would but you'd need the digital amplifier and speakers.

They are really dealer instructions, but:

read out map status in radio

connect charger to battery

disconnect all external media at radio

switch on radio

fold open display and insert SD card

press "OFF" button 10 to 12 seconds until illumination of radio and button goes out, switch on again. Update starts automatically

Insert activation code.

I don't see any way you can get around going to a dealer, but at least the good news is that you should definitely be able to get maps.

You can direct him/her to the website if he/she has no clue....

A little more info is here:

www.bosch-activation.com

You will need the last 7 digits of the "Serial Number" from the Product Information page.

highline bosch radio (EU maps?)

Can someone that owns the highline radio from the USA advise what maps the unit has preloaded? I live in EU but i bought the unit fm the States so I am curious if the EU maps are included.


thanks
