nope. TV tuner or GPS does the image generation. The BMBT is just a monitor, keyboard, tap/CD mechanism. You can swap the nav drive for a TV tuner though. You'll deffo need the TV tuner for the reverse in. Note the TV tuner graphics are 8 bit.

You need the DSP amp in the system, then DSP settings become an option on the BMBT.

If DSP is on the iBus, it appears on the BMBT menu. EDIT: Not sure how the 8 bit TV tuner handles DSP images. Google images would be your friend there.

Consider a dynavin.
