    Dear all, I have bought an Alfa MiTo (2011) very recently and also today bought a secondhand TomTom Live 2. The TomTom works when I plug it in to my computer but when I place it in the slot, it does not work at all. It seems like it gets no power. All fuses seem to be fine but still no power...

    Hi All Just bought a Nexus 7 and loaded some offline navigation apps to use in the car. I am looking for a sort of mount that sits in front of the stereo. I do not use any controls on the stereo so that would be the ideal place to mount something for me as I hate putting stuff on top of the...

  6. Alfa Giulietta
    Hi all, I just picked up my Giulietta Distinctive last week! So far so good! :) Just curious to know if the centre dash behind the slot for the tom tom if it can be opened? The manual shows a button that you press to open it, but mine doesn't have this button. Doesn't seem like it presses down...

  8. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hey guys! Since i work at a cellphone company, there was obviously no problem creating a second simcard, which is used only for the SatNav and is displayed as my main number. So if someone calls me on my cellphone and i don't answer for 15seconds it automaticly forwards the call so i can...

    I have recently noticed what must be a very unusual little problem on my 159. Erratically (but more frequently than not), I can hear a rattling noise coming from the key slot. This is amplified at higher speeds. The rattling seems to be coming from inside the key slot - possibly the plastic tab...

    Help needed mounting 6.5" in a 5x7 slot? (GTV) I'm trying to plan how to install some 6.5" component speakers (Focal 165v30) into the front door, which atm houses a 5x7 speaker. I have a list of issues I have run into so far. 1) The door card has screw holes which can line up with the 6.5"...

    Found out by accident the other day that if you insert and remove the key quickly you can then start the car without the key in the slot, is this normal for a 159? I can't see it being a problem unless you stall without the key in.

    What is a working Phone slot ics unit worth these days? I know they don't come up that often!? Dan
  13. Alfa 164 & 166
    Hi all, My 166 came with a card in the slot (no credit on it though) for the 'phone however I don't appear to get a signal. It constantly shows 'network search' and has only ever shown signal strength twice whilst on the move (then indicated emergency calls only). Should there be an aerial...

    You know where the roof line dips just above the rear hatch there is a slot - I thought this was to channel airflow over the rear glass but on looking closely it has a rubber seal - does this seal allow airflow only at high speed or is the whole thing just a styling gimmick?

    I have used the standard built in phone in my 166 for the past 5 years and not a problem, today I pressed the eject button and the sim card holder released but when I removed it the sim chip wasn't on the card! obviously fallen out of the sim card holder into whatever is in the thin slot...
  19. Introduce Yourself
    Hi I've brought an alfa 147 recently and was wondering how the Sim Card slot on Alfa 147 Sat Nav console works. Is it a card you should have got with the car from the dealer or do you have to get a duplicate sim card from your mobile phone service provider.

    Would like to install a DVD player where the cup holder and card slot are. Anyone know if there is a facia adapter to go in there and has any removed theirs? If so love to see a pic.
