Ipod compatability

I took delivery of my 159 today and the saleman informed me that the Ipod isn't compatable with the USB dock unless I purchase a 70 adaptor. But he then said that fiat were releasing an update to be downloaded to rectify this. Can anyone tell me if this is true and how to do it.

You can follow this link to the Fiat Update page. It says you can use iPods/iPhones without the adaptor. I've got this update but still need the adaptor, but it might be worth a try. Full instructions are included on the page. If you need the adaptor shop around. I paid 55 from the Alfa dealer in Nottingham.

My blue&me was replaced under warranty as the unit failed, so was unfortunately updated to the latest software (about 2 months ago). Can confirm Ipod (classic) still works fine, sometimes get issues with 'building music library' which others have reported, and it is perhaps less stable and responsive than the earlier version (2008?) but its perfectly useable, with no adaptor
