I own Alfa Romeo 159 Jtdm 2.4 Ti 2008 model
I have few questions in regards to installing a navigation/entertainment system...

1) Will Pioneer AVIC-F900BT work in my alfa?
2) IF it does work, what affects does it have on Blue and ME system, will the blue and me system get screwed up or will it still work???
3) what are parts I need when I'm installing it (Im a newbie in installing stuff)
4) is it easy to install or is it hard?


p.s. I've searched through internet over 2 days,, and the website (www.contactnavigation.net/product/4) told me Pioneer AVIC-F900BT is the one I should buy for my AR, but I'm still not convinced, I mean I don't want to make sure that nav system will work on my car, b4 I buy it.

please reply..

-Thanks

There is no physical place to put a double DIN
headunit if you want to retain Blue & Me.

So you'd have to remove it anyway.

The Pioneer is a great choice.
You will indeed have a problem with the Blue and Me.
Some friend of mine did the same thing you want and had to move the Blue and Me system from the dash to somewhere above the glovebox. Of course, hidden, but took a while to find a spot.

He couldn't make the Pioneer work with the Blue and Me. The Pioneer comes with bluetooth and phone, mic etc. He had to keep the Blue and Me connected to the car, otherwise the milage counter would blink.

It is not hard to fit but I suggest you do it at a specialised shop, especially if you are a newbie in car audio and navigation.

Good luck.

Good point. When you switch the car on, the main computer
checks the CANbus network and it expects all the gadgets that
the car was installed with at the factory to respond.

If not you get this proxy alignment flashing mileage issue.

I'm not sure whether you can reprogramme the computer
to remove a device it thinks it should see.
