    I have just ordered the Dension unit for my 2008 159 and am looking for some guidance on installation. First of all, if I understand correctly I have to disconnect the Blue&Me unit. I have read some reports that this causes the odometer to flash - is this true? Is there any way I can prevent...

    Hello I recently fitted a Dension Gateway to my 2001 147. It has caused a few issued. Namely the boot release stopped working and today discovered a drained battery after only a few days in the garage. I have decided to ditch this and get a refund. Are the alternatives any good? I see...

    Hello I have just fitted the gateway to my 147. It works great other than it its always charging the iPod. Even with the ignition off. I guess I have to swap the switched live and permanent live? I'm not sure which wire these are. Somethings telling me swap the red and yellow? Any advice...

I've updated the Blue&Me to the latest firmware but it still doesn't recognise the iPhone. So, I have a couple of options and question, if someone could help answer, I...

    Hi, My alfa 159 comes with the Bosch/Blaupunkt 939 head unit and it has a 10 Disc CD changer in the boot. No USB, No Bluetooth, No Aux. I want to be able to stream music via bluetooth to my car sound system, and I was looking for the least complicated way of doing it. So, after a lot of...

    Hello guys, i know this has been debated numerous times, but i still couldn't figure out it works or not. So i want to know if the Dension Gateway Lite will start playing the track over every time i switch off the car, or will it memorise the last location of the song (minutes:seconds) and play...

    I had this fitted in January and it has worked perfectly until a few days ago. I now get the Dension name and "ok to disconnect" everytime I use it on the Ipod screen. I have to disconnect the iPod gen 5 from the cable and choose what I want and then plug it in again. It reverts to the Ok to...

    Im looking to install a dension 100 unit into my 159 which has the standard HU. Is the dension unit small enough to hide behind the HU out of view? I am thinking that I will route the iPod cable into the glove box out of sight. I would love to upgrade my HU but for the money the dension kit...

    Hi All, I've got the old Dension Icelink Plus ipod system in my car and I love it. But my old ipod video is on it's way out and I'd like to use my iphone instead.

    Hi, I've been following Dension's compatibility info for a while now, waiting for them to support my 159. According to a PDF from their website not only do they now support the 159, Brera and Spider, they have support for on-screen text on models with a Blaupunkt 939 HU. They seem to do this...
