We were thinking we should provide our customers (RV manufacturers and consumers) with price point / feature choices that make sense for them. It is not a "one size fits all world."
Currently we offer three levels of product choices:
1. AM/FM/CD Player
3 AM/FM/CD/DVD/Weatherband/Bluetooth/HDMI Connectivity/5.1 Surround Sound
Your questions towards us are not valid in that we have addressed them via our product choices, but unfortunately for both of us the features you want are not in the model you chose. That is more of a purchase decision than a product capability question isn't it?
That said, I agree with your base assumptions and think you (and everyone else) should upgrade to the GT3.0 which is the only 12 Volt, RV, 5.1 Surround Sound System with Bluetooth and HDMI connectivity! :-)
And by the way, our middle option (which has been on the market for about two years now) the GT2.0 DVD Player with Bluetooth and Composite Video output is the same video output as our competitors recently released Bluetooth unit. If you want HDMI on their other DVD systems, you lose the Bluetooth. Again, these are simply pricing / feature choices.
Lastly and a shameless plug, anyone wanting to upgrade to to a GT3.0 can get a Factory Refreshed Unit with a $50 Rebate at ZX800 Refreshed Units
