Hi,

I'm looking to have a Pioneer AVIC F10BT Sat Nav fitted when I have my 159 delivered in March. Will this make the Blue&Me that's fitted as standard totally redundant? Are there any potential problems I should be aware of? Finally, any recommendations re installers in the London area?

Many thanks

Barry Z:confused:

Hi Barry,

My car didn't have B&M to start with, but I believe it does render it totally redundant.

Are there any potential problems I should be aware of?
From what I've read, the B&M unit needs to remain connected, so needs to be secreted away somewhere.

Finally, any recommendations re installers in the London area?
My Pioneer AVIC-F910BT was installed by Creative Car Sounds in Winchmore Hill, North London. They were very clued-up about installing to a Brera, so I would expect the same for the 159 :)

And probably not a problem on a new car, but don't forget to de-register any phones from the blue&me before you take it appart... ;)

They fitted an AVIC D3 for my 147 a couple of years ago and did a top job. Stuart there knows his stuff so I would highly recommend. :thumbs:

I (obviously :D) noticed the photo of a 147 GTA on their website -- is it yours? :)

Seeing that was the best endorsement possible ;)

:lol: Yes that was mine. I'd completely forgotten that he'd posted a pic.

I'm really happy with the installation and rate the D3 highly, although the new pioneers look to be a lot better with full iphone compatability and (I think) speed camera warnings - two things that the D3 didn't have.
