Sim Card slot on Alfa 147 Sat Nav console

Hi
I've brought an alfa 147 recently and was wondering how the Sim Card slot on Alfa 147 Sat Nav console works. Is it a card you should have got with the car from the dealer or do you have to get a duplicate sim card from your mobile phone service provider.

Hi mate, welcome to the forum

You do need a card (similar in size to a credit card) to put your SIM card into and then slot the whole thing into the Sat Nav console.

Will have a look on the web and let you know

Yeah thats the thingy bigfoot showed, Alfa do one withtheir badge on the back too.

Its designed for a 'full size' SIM card, you know the one you get from your network and you break the small chip out the middle to put in your phone.

You can either get a duplicate SIM or keep taking the one out your main phone (which I did). Copy your phone book onto the SIM so the connect can read the numbers.

The website I sent you allows you to buy one directly (check on the right hand side).
