Random Beeping!

So I've had my 2014 Giulietta for a few weeks now and I love it! Get a real buzz walking up to it as it's so damn sexy!! Really enjoying flicking the switch into Dynamic mode and feeling the difference in character!

However, there is one thing that is bugging me. I keep getting this random 'beep beep' when driving along. I think it is coming from the Uconnect system but I can't be sure. It doesn't seem to have any kind of regular interval and there is no light/info on the display or dash that seems to go with it. I would say it probably beeps every 5 minutes or so but it varies.

Anybody got any ideas what this is or what it's trying to tell me?

Any help would be appreciated.

Cheers

Speed camera warning?
The salesman set mine on handover in the showroom and it still surprised me driving home!

It's not a seat belt warning, that is a much more aggressive, harder to ignore noise!

I thought it could be a speed camera warning as I have noticed it happening when near cameras. But I'm sure it's happened with no cameras in sight. How do I turn the speed camera warning on or off, to check if it is that?

Cheers

temperature warning? I don't know in the uk, byut if you're darting around 3C you get a warning for possible ice on the roads.

Could be the speed limiter warning? You will find it 3 buttons on the dash to the right of the window wiper stalk, go into the setting should mention speed limiter somewhere

List that setting on the Connect screen rather than the outboard switches where it was with Blue and Me?

Have you got a car seat on the passenger seat or something resting on it? Mine does it occasionally when it thinks there is someone sat on it so trips the passenger seatbelt warning

It could be the profanity detector?

It's not the speed limiter warning, I checked today. Nothing resting on any seats to trigger the seat belt noise.

I think you might be right Cue, it must be the profanity warning! It's preemptive though as it beeps just before I swear!!!

It really is a mystery! I hate things I can't figure out!

Grrrrrr...

I have this too! It goes off and I start looking at everything for something flashing to show me what it could be! The last time it was pretty cold outside and I was in speed camera hotspot so it could have been either! I'll do the same stretch of road again when it's a little warmer and see if I get thre same beeps!

The speed camera warnings happen twice on the uConnect system - once when heading towards a camera and about a kilometre away and again when you are 100 metres away from the camera. Thing is you can be heading along a road, a kilometre away from the camera, it will beep and then you turn off to go in a different direction - which confuses the matter! This used to happen to me as I approached home and it took me a while to figure out what was going on.

Judging by what you say Andy I think it is most likely speed camera warning beeps that I'm hearing. It makes sense if it goes off twice like that, and I live near quite a few cameras!

Thanks for putting my mind more at ease!!

On the 2016 Giulietta with 6.5" uconnect, you turn off the radar warning by turning off navigation voice guidance.

How do you turn off the voice guidance? Been trying to figure that out for a while now. I just want the map guidance but now spoken guidance.
