    I don't beleive it! I just don't beleive it I took my 147 to Bishops in Guildford to have the brakes, steering and the stereo looked at. Came back a day later and they tell me the whole stereo, sat nav, phone and connect unit needs replacing because they got some errors from the diagnostsics...

    A quickie: does this have to live in the in dash CD player or can I relegate it to the boot changer? OH for a mp3 cd boot changer ( no - 10 CDs is not enough) and CD-TEXT.... :rolleyes:
  4. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I may be being simple, but I've searched through the forums for details on what type of head unit for a CD-autochanger the standard connect nav+ system has, but can only find details for the Bose system. Can somebody please give me details about which cable connector I need, which systems will...

  6. General Alfa Discussion
    Am I right if I conclude that if you have a selespeed you cannot have the Nav+connect system? I base this on the fact that the 156 GTA Selespeed can be delivered with Navigation, GSM preparation etc, but not with the nav+connect system. The same goes for the 147 so it seems.The 147 gta can come...

    What are the differences between the Connect Nav and the Connect Nav + ?
  8. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hiya, recently bought a 147 with the connect nav+ but what puzzles me is the fact it seems to know nothing about the traffic situation on the roads en route. The manual refers to the traffic function but it unavailable or absent when I choose it from the nav menu. I receive the normal traffic...

    I just want to know the following: who lives in FRANCE or SPAIN and is coming to the meeting in April? :confused: Only people with the connect system please. Feel free to send me a PM, because we all know why I'm asking this, don't we?? :D :D :D :D And for the guys that are a...

    I was looking around for some new 147 website. I came across a site, That guy has some download, including a zip-file with an update of the connect system (version 23.16) and also an pdf-manual on how to do it. Did anyone already tried it ? Wim

    Hello Alfans, Can you answer this? Liebling
  12. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Wouldnt it be great if you could configure the connect nav + to display your own choice of start up image, (as opposed to the Alfa logo) and change the colours to your preference. I can just imagine turning on the Alfa, and having the Liverpool FC logo come up, with a lovely red colour system!!!

    My connect screwed up again. It decided that I have to learn Italian. It happened tonight when I received a phone call. All the personal settings are gone and the voice activated system doesn't work anymore. :( No way to get it back into Dutch text. Have to see my garage tomorrow about it...

    Is this possible? I only seem to be able to send upper case.

  16. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, 2 days ago I got my brand new 147. It's a [email protected] HP, 17" Selespeed, Azzuro nuvola and connect+... The car is a beauty and the handling is nearly perfect! I have a few questions though: Can I alter the voice which guides me using the Nav. ? Now a woman talks to me in a sort of belgian...
  17. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    The display/radio/satnav/phone are kaput on my 147. Was working fine and now all I get is the pink background with AR logo that alternates with a black background. None of the buttons work. I'll have to book it into the dealer but it may take a couple of weeks for me to find a slot. Any ideas...

    I have a 2.0 Selespeed Lusso with Connect Nav+. the brochure shows that there should be 8 buttons on the steering wheel whereas mine only has 6. i.e. there are no phone or voice control buttons. Is this right? Alfabee2002
  19. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    The connect nav+ seems to be an untested bit of kit. I am now due for my 3rd unit, the first would not operate the connect system and the second had the same problem but with the sat nav failing as well. Alfa dealers seem not have the slightest clue about this sort of equipment. The Stilo...
  20. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    When looking at pictures of the CN+ system, it seems that the unit requires a creditcard size SIM card. I've already ordered (and recieved) a dual SIM from KPN, my provider. I recieved two push-out-creditcard-sized-sims. My normal cellphone is a nokia 6210 with a small sized sim. The phone can...
