Just got me a 147 :) but heylppppp...

Hiya People,

Just thought I would say hello to you all as i'm a newbie Alfa owner. I picked up a bargain Alfa 147, 2.0 TS Lusso last night, it's a 2001 with leather, bose system, one owner and also Sat Nav which I need to ask a question about if possible please.

On switching on the ignition the Sat Nav screen comes on with the Alfa logo, but then I don't seem to be able to do anything with it. Have tried following the instruction guide which says I should be presented with a menu to scroll through, but I can't even get that far.

The car was bought from a local small trader and I assumed that the Sat Nav would be functioning as it was advertised with the car and on test drive seeing the screen come on e.t.c lead me to believe all was OK. On asking the trader whether the Sat Nav needed a card to put in the slot he said that he had only just picked up the car and not used the Sat Nav himself, but that it would maybe need a code as the battery may have been disconnected at some point. However, it doesn't ask for a code or give me an option to input a code and on disconnecting the battery it made no difference.

Any help or guidance on this would be very much appreciated.

Hi Jimbo and welcome to the forum. I don't know the answer to your query but I would suggest you post this in the 147 tech lounge. You're more likely to get an answer there (more people look at that lounge I think).
