  1. Sat Nav question

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    This may seem a daft question. The GPS sd card slot has no card in it. What does it do and Where do I get one ? Not interested in changing the unit! TIA
  2. Update on lost GPS

    Alfa Giulietta
    Did the first test with the "Dragy GPS Performance Meter" on wifes 100% stock Giulietta MA170 TCT These boxes are incredible accurate and just as good as the "old school" RaceLogic VBOX, to 1/4 of the VBOX price.

  12. No GPS, no AM

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hello all I guess they're related (except I still receive FM broadcasts, no problem) but my GPS no longer finds my location (so it often looks like I'm crossing fields over driving the wrong way on a motorway) and all I get is static on AM radio stations. I assume this is related to my antenna...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Does anyone have a spare copy of the Navtech gps disk. Bought Sportswagen from Veloce but no disk passed on. Would be happy to buy original or copy. The Navtech case is dated 2008 UK AND IRELAND. Can buy Europe disk from Navtech at twice the price of a new radio/gps.

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hello all, I have searched the forums regarding options for a GPS device for my non-myport 2011 Giulietta, and am clued-up on just about everything apart from one point: The sound for directions etc. At the moment, I use my iphone/google maps, and it "calls" into the B&M, and my music is...
