Anybody got a 147 with the "MP3 with voice recognition" option?


I'm about to order a shiny new 147 Lusso, and have been looking at the list of options that I might add. At the bottom of the current list is "MP3 with voice recognition" and according to the showroom bit of, if I specify it I cant have the steering-wheel stereo controls. Apart from that, though, there doesn't seem to be much info.

So - does anyone actually know what form this MP3 player takes (hard disk based, just a better CD player that plays MP3s from CD?) - and does it have it's own version of steering wheel controls -maybe a microphone for the voice recog?

Thanks for any help.

Your guess is as good as mine, but I'm happy finally some sort of MP3 is possible in the 147.
I think it will be with CD playback. It seems expensive, but not expensive enough for HD playback. And for most users HD is a big hassle.
I hope it can be build-in afterwards (just removing the old radio and plugging in the new)

Don't need Voice recoginition though...

The MP3 option from factory is a typo in the UK alfa page. There is no MP3 option for the 147 from factory. There is however cd-changers and other options for mp3 but you have toinstall them yourself. Do a search of the forum on mp3 and you find that this topic has been discused. The fiat stilo has a connect system that has mp3 but the guts of the system is completly different, even made in a diferent factory, so do not get confused. IF you want mp3 the best todo is order the 147 with preinstalled cdchanger cable, I think is standard anyway, and install a SONY cd-changer that has mp3.
Again do a search and you will find all the info you need in this forum.
