Any update on this thread? I'd be interested to see if there is a update to the Alfa Connect Nav+ s/w to rectify the bugs.
My wife has a BMW anf they upgraded the i-Drive software free of charge at the last service, so I would hope this option is availabel to us too?
(Note: I am referring to the actual Connect Nav+ s/w not the Navtec disk)
There have been a number of updates for the system software of the Alfa connect+ (btw, the Fiat is completely different, even though it's also called connect+, has a different CPU).
Your friendly Alfa dealer
should be able to update your unit to the latest software version. It's just a matter of an update CD...
To check your software version, go into the connect+ service menu....
How to get there you can see from:
As you can see from the above link, the procedure to get access to the service menu is:
first press T17 (main)
Then press R2 (enter)
You will then see a menu apppear without the service item....
Then press mute (long press T18 till "audio off" appears)
Then press one after another T4,5,6 ("1", "2", "3")
Then press R2 ("enter" )
You will then see an additional menu item appear...
sellect this by rotating R2 en and press to enter
There also seem to be 2 hardware versions. For the one, I think the latest software version is 26.17
The other version numbers differently, i.e. 4.xx see
