Don't be so sure, the Mito can't have cruise control retro fitted, unlike the 147/156 which was a case of buy the stalk & the cowl & plug&play. I know that's not exactly the same but it seems "home/dealer upgrades aren't as easy/possible as in the past.I bet it could be if you really tried. I'd expect the wiring loom to be in place already for sure.
If I get a Giulietta I'll definitely be ordering it with the port, it's so cheap it'd be silly not to, worth it just to do away with the cables & the window mount :thumbs:However, whether it is worth doing is another matter - isn't the Alfa Tom Tom a very high price?
Ditto. My only concern is how stable the cradle will be on the dashboard given that it appears the only mechanical connection is the electrical adaptor itself. I could be wrong about that but that is how it looked when I had a peak at my car earlier this week. Anyway, I should get a chance to try out a unit the dealer is buying before I buy the unit outright.My Giulietta gets delivered tomorrow and I specced the TomTom port because it can't be retro-fitted.
With regards to your views, Let me see whether I have got this right.My Giulietta gets delivered tomorrow and I specced the TomTom port because it can't be retro-fitted.
You can either buy the Alfa TomTom which works with the steering wheel controls and the Blue&Me system due to the software being different to a normal TomTom.
The Alfa TomTom comes with the cradle to plug into the port, total cost is £257.
When you buy a suitable and compatible TomTom like a Go750 (European Maps) you need to purchase the cradle separately which costs £43 + postage.
Depending upon where you buy the Tom Tom you are either a few pounds more or less expensive than buying the AR TomTom which doesn't come with the HD traffic function which the Go750 does but I believe you can subscribe to the HD traffic function with the AR unit.
That being said a TomTom that is not AR can't be controlled using the steering wheel nor does it have some of the functionality specific to the AR system such as low fuel warning and navigation to a petrol station.
Hope this helps
