I have recently bought a 159, 2007, 3.2 Q4. Very happy except that the MP3 playing situation is awful. I can put a USB stick into the USB port in the glove box and navigate/play songs via the steering wheel controls, it works, but it's a terrible system which I can't even say I'm comfortable using on winding roads.
Really, in an ideal world, I'd like a 3.5mm jack into which I can plug my Android tablet, or my girlfriend's iPhone and play whatever I like, Spotify etc. through that.
As I understand it, there is no 3.5mm jack in the 159.
So, what are my options? Can I get a 3.5mm jack adaptor to go into the the USB port?
I'm not in the least bit interested in using the steering wheel controls, I'm happy to let my girlfriend manage the music while I drive. One of those FM tuner would be good if the sound quality was there, but really I just want to plug in something else using a 3.5mm jack and forget the Alfa even has a built in music system.
Love to know what the possibilities are.
