I've just picked up my 159 sw, bought the fiat blue and me adaptor and am trying to connect my ipod but no matter what I do I cant get the b and m system to see the ipod
I've also go a Spider with b and m, but that has nav head unit not the cd player the 159 has so took the adaptor and ipod from that which I know works and plugged into the 159 but no joy, the system wont recognise that the ipod is there whic rules out a duff bleu and me adaptor.
When connected the ipod display doesn't change to show its got a USB connection. if I remove adaptor and plug ipod in direct to usb socket in glove box the ipod does swap to show its got a connection but the B and M still doesn't see the ipod
If i use a USB pen formatted for FAT and with tracks dumped on it does play.
All the ipods are mac formatted and I've tried 2 ipods plus my 3GS and 4S phones, no joy on any of them. Rest of B and M is working perfectly, voice commands and phones paired without a problem.
Not sure where to go from here, I tried to check firmware was 5.5 and DL'ed the update, stuck it on a USB stick and tried an update but it just errors out with "USB date error" when i put key in. Afa B and M website is a waste of space with no real tech info. tried leaving ipod plugged in to let tracks update but it still doesn't show.
Anyone got any idea of what i can try next?
