  1. Thoughts/review on a new Giulia.

    Alfa Giulia
    Hi, I have just bought a new Giulia Veloce (MY19) and after a couple of weeks playing with it I had quite a few questions that took me a little while to find the answers to. I thought I might not be the only one so wanted to put them into a post and hope they might be useful to other owners...
  2. Mito 2016 Twin Air Distinctive tomtom radio re-insertion problem

    Alfa MiTo
    Hi Had my lovely Mito for about a month now. After about a week the satnav wouldn't get satellites lock on. It's the Uconnect 5" Radio Nav - with 4 extraction holes and Tomtom navigation. Guessing it was the roof aerial cable issue, I bought a magnetic satellite receiver thingy off ebay and...
  3. 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

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi: I have a 159 3.2 V6 Ti with the Bose System, 10 CD stacker and the standard Radio Head Unit. Does anybody know if I can get a compatible SatNav head unit that will retain the CD stacker and Blue and me functionality? Can't find an original Alfa unit anywhere in Australia. I know MP3...
  5. Crazy Sat-Nav?

    Alfa Giulia
    Was in unfamiliar territory last week and so just pressed the Voice Button and said 'Navigate home' Followed the directions for a bit then realised I was going in the opposite direction... Zoomed out and it was directing me to a completely random destination just a few miles away! Tried it four...
  6. SatNav update?

    ICE & Blue&Me
    Anyone point me in the right direction on how to get the latest maps for my SatNav? 2010 Spider with original head unit. Anyone happen to have an updated copy they could send? I assume it updates via the SD Card that’s installed?

    I have a 159 from 2011 with the original satnav with quadlock connector, and Bose option. See pictures. I would like to replace this with a Sony head unit, see picture. Have looked at several threads on this forum, and I understand that I need the connects2 controls adaptor to get the...
  8. SATNAV Satisfactory Operation and 'New' Feature

    Alfa Giulia
    Just to report that I've found no real problem at all with my Quadrifoglio's SATNAV during 18 months of ownership and on the 1,500 mile journey to Abruzzo. I do have the latest infotainment software and map for this early 2017 model. One thing I learnt on the autostrade is that the progress...
  9. Cradle for phone as satnav

    Alfa Giulietta
    I'd like to have a cradle in the car to use phone as sat nav. This would be occasional use so I don't want one of the pad / sucker varieties. Preferably something I can pop in the glove box or spare wheel well or similar and take out on rare occasion needed. Does anyone have any suggestions? I...

  11. Satnav oddity

    Alfa Giulia
    Driving back home from Brighton to west Northamptonshire yesterday evening, set up the sat nav as the other half likes to see how many miles left to go. The route is straightfoward, A23, M25, M40, A361 to home (done it countless times), but at every junction after the A23 section the satnav...

  13. MOPAR Satnav Map update for Connect Live 6.5

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi, I took delivery of a 2018 Guilietta 2 weeks ago. On checking the MOPAR Map update page, it's saying there is an update that must be dealer installed. Has anyone had this done recently? Is it a big install? Is it worth the hassle of booking it in to the dealer? Thanks in advance, Keith

  15. UConnect and after market satnav

    Alfa MiTo
    I'm looking at replacing my current 2013 Mito for a newer (used) model. My current car has Blue & Me with factory fitted satnav - a system I like and works well. With a newer model I would ideally like the UConnect - which I have no experience of - to have the Nav feature (middle button at the...

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi guys, Just picked up my new (to me) Guilietta and I'm in love with it, the only thing that lets it down is the stereo. Sadly I didn't do too much research before buying and assumed Blue&me would be able to stream audio, I have no idea what software version it's currently on but does anyone...

    I took delivery of a new Giulia Veloce in October - fantastic to drive and looks superb, However.....Satnav developed a fault within a week locating me first in the Wash and then off the coast of the Hook of Holland (not been to either place and didn't go go for the amphibious option!). Anyway...

    I've been having some issues with the central (pop up) display on my 11 plate G Cloverleaf. On starting the car, the display filps up...but then gets to the normal "top" position, pauses momentarily and then cycles up and down between half way down. The screen never comes on. This continues...
