The heads up displays would be GREAT if they come to market!
Just a FWIW the Function Control "pod" as used in the '08 and later dashes seems to be the exact same parts as those from previous years. This is what it looks like out of the dash:
That particular "pod" doesn't have the rear heater-A/C blower motor control but that inclusion wouldn't change the size or dimensions .
It would be quite a task to re-locate I I'm thinking.
The radio location isn't ideal for safe viewing of an integrated GPS type display in the entertainment head. I have a rear and side view display monitor mounted to my headliner which is far from ideal but its workable as I still rely on outside mirrors quite a bit while driving. I'd love to move that monitor but haven't yet thought where that might work best for me. Just rambling here........
