I'm going to order their "Professional" kit. It allows you to set one head at a time. I'm not in a hurry so that will work for me.

probably a dumb question.......

Since my car (2000 740i sport) doesn't have a tv tuner, and my nav unit is dead, can I buy a tuner and just remove the nav unit? All I want is the radio display to work.

Thanks.
