Help Frustrated New Owner 159

Hi people my name is Chix (that is 'really' my name), I live in Salisbury in the UK.

I took delivery of a brand new 159 (company car - I'm not loaded ) on Tuesday and....

It looks great.. It drives wonderfully.... It's comfortable... It's fast !.... BUT ..

The Audio-Navigation system is driving me mad

I have a million questions about how to use it and hope to post these in the next couple of days.. If you can look out for me and help me understand what I am sure is a very simple system that would be great .. oh and please be patient with me .. I'm no techy !

So... What is the best forum to post these questions in ? - I don't have a lot of time to search as I have two young children and a football team that zap most of my time!

Welcome. Also try the ICE & B & M forum. Not sure if your car has the Blue & Me system but a lot has beenposted in the B & M forum on it.

It is a wonderful car.

Hi there. I think I know how you feel. I have also just picked up a 159 with Blue&Me phone connection, MP3 USB stick player and the whizz-bang steering wheel controls for the radio and all these toys. I have worked in IT for 30 years so I should know how these things go. But this system is still taking me a while to get to grips with. Remember, if all else fails, read the manual. Trouble is you may need 3 separate books to cover the car itself, the radio and then the Blue&Me add on.

Doing is the best way to imprint on your memory. When the weather warms up go and sit in the car with the books and run through the options - or at least the ones you are interested in.

Or just turn the lot off and listen to the engine while you drive
