sat nav sim

Not wanting to pay 100's for sat nav on my Abarth Spyder, looking at the cheap SIM cards, they are all the same No. :VPGZAF15L100AA, yet vary in price from 60.00 to 25.00. Am I missing something? just want a basic sat nav system, nothing fancy.

Re: sat nav sim

Now I'm no expert for sure, but I'd beware of where the card is coming from. I have heard (although it may be dealer-inspired) talk of virus implanted in cards from obscure sources.

Enter the postcode in the line where it asks for a street name...if you update the card to the latest software version, it actually now says street name or post code

Re: sat nav sim

Thanks but I have tried this several times and it does not allow me to enter the postcode in the street window. How would I go about upgrading a "hookie" SD card seeing as it was not bought at the extortionate price from Fiat?
regards clive.

I think you have to also enter a house number and then it is accepted - I just picked a rough number and it worked.


All this is fixed in the update - you should give it a go as I'm sure all will be fine. I doubt what you have is non original. From what I could tell once you use the card in the car the first time, it writes data to the card and links the card and car. If what you had was non original I doubt it would work at all.


below is the link to the update tool
