  1. Default map vs live map.

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    As I understand it these cars run a default map on warm up and then switch over to a live map based on sensor values. I get the feeling that mine seems to run better on the default map. Does anyone know what the change over temperature is? Also how do others feel about the performance on the...
  2. Front Screen Default settings

    Does anyone know what the default setting is for the front screen on my 2011 GQV ? When I bought it it had the mileage indicator on it which counted down the mileage to an empty tank. Since then Ive been mucking around with it and its showing the radio station on the front screen and I cant get...
  3. (New Alfisti): driver-side mirror reverting to default position + few questions

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi guys I recently got my new 2011 Alfa Romeo 159, 2.2 JTS. Enjoying it. Yet few issues: 1- the driver-side mirror keeps reverting to its default position every time I unlock the car. Every time I have to re-adjust it. I thought its positioning is synced with the seat's position, but I did try...

    ICE & Blue&Me
    Hello, My 147 1,6 TS (2008) Connect Nav+ went off so I decided to buy the default-factory Alfa CD player until I find a solution with the Connect Nav+.

    ICE & Blue&Me
    Hi After "inadvertantly" resetting the factory defaults on the radio - my metablue system is so quiet as to be inaudible. How do I reset or increase the default setting of volume and alert tones that come through the car speaker system on the metablue2. Its fitted to my 2006 159. The beep...

    ICE & Blue&Me
    My B&M in my 159 (57model) works fine but it is a real peev to have some of the menus restricted to only being available when stationary - eg phone book list/contacts. Anyone know if it is possible to overide this so the system does not semi shutdown when the car is mobile? Yes I know it's...
  12. Default Alarm System ?

    Alfa Giulietta
    Sorry, if this has been asked already. I did search but didn't find what I was looking for. In the option list, I see "alarm". (Which btw is conflicting with the second remote for the key) My dealer claimed that the Giulietta has no alarm system by default. Is this true ? Or is this alarm...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I've got a 2005 156, and as many fellow owners will probably know, the dipped beam on the headlamps is less than good! Now that I've finally got my smashed front fog lamps replaced (thanks roeburndale), is there any way I can set these to on by default when the dipped beam is switched on to...
  17. Media player starts playing as soon as ignition is on

    ICE & Blue&Me
    In my 08 159 Sportwagon I keep a memory stick, containing only MP3 files, plugged in to the USB port. (Everything else is working fine, navigation round albums and folders is OK, I stopped the repetition with the "Loop Off" voice command, thanks to another thread). However there is an annoying...
  18. Can the default volume be changed on standard radio

    ICE & Blue&Me
    Hi, has anyone found a way of changing the default volume setting on the standard radio CD on the late model 156s? Every time I switch mine on it comes on at a quiet volume setting of '20', and I have to hold the '+' button for ages before I can hear John Humphrys' cheery voice. Is there...

    Hi Guys, Simple one this I hope!. I cannot for the life of me work out how to turn up the 'default' volume of my radio! It always starts at '21' which is not quite loud enough, so the first thing I have to do every time is up it to about 30, quite annoying! There must be a way surely? Thanks...
