If it IS a windows based operating system from the mid 2000s, then it probably won't recognise any flash memory device bigger than 4Gb. It may also need to be formatted to FAT32 (or maybe NTFS, I can't remember which was Microsoft's preferred system). If you're using a Mac, it may have formatted the usb stick to a different system.

(FAT32, the drive software the operating system is very likely expecting to see on the memory stick won't recognise any file larger than 4Gb anyway).

Looks like I was wrong about 4Gb being ok..... tried this morning with a 4Gb drive with nothing but music files on it (in folders tbh), and nada.

Will try again with all the music files in the root folder (which would seem to be a superfluous test, but hey, windows.)

ok - so - the music on the 4Gb, DOES work, once you figure out that the radio itself doesn't control it.
I hadn't realised this and only discovered it when I tried pressing the 'windows-logo' button on the steering wheel and the voice control options suddenly had 'Play/Stop/Repeat/Next' included. Genuinely did not expect that. (Especially since the 'MP3-display' options ARE managed through the radio!

Re: Blue & Me - Tech Info and questions and answers

Hiya, do any of you find the BnM woman struggles to recognise simple clear commands at times? Sometimes she'll recognise the word YES straight away but others she'll keep repeating herself and finally switching the voice command back off. Is there a fix for this or is it just her monthly cycle?

Never had any problems with her understanding, that said I donít really have any sort of accent, worth considering if you do have a strong accent of any sort

Re: Blue & Me - Tech Info and questions and answers

Hi I have a 2012 500 twin air and the bluetooth module apparently needs replacing. I works in every way except there is no sound through the speakers. I have been advised to update the software first before removing and replacing the module. I can't find the software to download though. The official site does not work anymore (it needs flash player) so I don't know where to get it from. If any one has a copy of software for the blue and me I would appreciate it greatly. Thankyou

Re: Blue & Me - Tech Info and questions and answers

It’s going to become a reoccurring theme and I can’t believe if you found this you’ve not seen the other posts, basically to update the b&m in your car you need to use an update tool (the now defunct website) to establish which bit of software your specific car needs, its not as simple as just using any old software you can find

The Blueandme website is NOT defunct we have paired/repaired several cars in the last few weeks updating to TomTom2's and general software updates.

Obviously if you want to use equally insecure and dodgy software thatís been linked with all sorts of issues, then that is entirely your choice.

Bare in mind that the reason that it does not work on other browsers is because Adobe have killed the flash player so if the site is working on another browser which is not using flash player, then there are bound to be massive security issues in that browser, and thatís without taking into account the reports of that particular browser sending your personal information to servers in China.

So follow this advice at your own risk.

Re: Blue & Me - Tech Info and questions and answers

Ah Yes, the Rusky's and Chinese are working with Michael Caine on the new Italian Job where they are going to hack all the Fiats and Alfas with Blue&Me and cause traffic chaos worldwide

The statement was quite clear the Blueandme site is NOT defunct. ..it is fully operational as it has always been even since they finished any updates back in 2015 so owners with issues can hopefully update or sort out problems and I am sure it has been well used over the past 6 years too....how one chooses to access into the site is another matter as there are many ways that it can be achieved and is not something I certainly need advice on it is my daily job dealing with website fraud and hackers.

Personally we used an old laptop with Windows7 64bit (yes WIN7 too is outdated and not secure but again NOT defunct). I have no personal data or use it for any internet work just for access to blueandme.net and the odd suspect sites we may need to access. That said all our connections go through a VPN and tight security on anything we download.

Cnet and Softpedia are well known download sites we use a lot and whilst obviously have their caveats no one can ever consider themselves entirely safe and even as ARK has said previously to use an old out of date browser would be no safer at all


I have been downloading and sending out files on a memory stick and/or transfering them over the internet to those that don't use Windows and get these returned with a SAE that I then check update and modify as required. It keeps one of my work colleagues (Hacky) very happy in between code breaking, who at the moment though cannot stop laughing at the thought of Putin in his palace instructing the KGB to hack the Blueandme website to ground all Fiats so he can sell more Trabants or Ladas. That said maybe Xi Jinping has other thoughts.

Don't forget though other warnings to be careful of 5G masts

Microsoft is forcefully removing flash from all systems as part of the upcoming updates
So very soon it won't be possible for a lot of people to do this

Not sure Chris if that will affect the browser we use but will cross that path no doubt in due course. In the meantime during his coffee break and when the 'fat controller is out', Hacky now he has stopped rolling around laughing, is regularly downloading a lot of vehicle files off the blueandme site and creating his own library. He has accessed many of the various cars/vans files that after the initial download read similar information by the marque but when fed back into the vehicle during stage 1 update there is an additional script line placed on the memory stick returned back from the car for the 2nd stage upload back. There appears an address line that has varied on every vehicle he has worked on so he is figuring this is a key script line unique to each blue&me module.

I have no idea what a dealer would do when someone has a faulty B&M module as without the access to the blueandme.net site how can a new module be programmed. Hacky has also found the script line where the cars Model is shown on the radio LED display when turned on so we are going to try see if we can give the car a unique name that comes up on the radio instead of at the moment just FIAT.
The boss has just ordered 100 2GB USB memory sticks at 15p each (he doesn't know yet)......damn it though they are coming from China so I hope they don't know its for blueandme updates and get intercepted.

You might think youíre oh so funny. But you carry on with what youíre doing.... oh sorry youíre not doing it ďhackyĒ is the one doing all the work.

Obviously in this instance youíre recommending other people go out and do what you.... sorry ďhackyĒ is doing, except people will use their own laptops, and computers, they will have files on those computers they donít want people to have access to and itís exactly this reason Adobe have killed the Flash Player, because itís not secure anymore...

Your method for fixing this is to deliberately install software which is known to harvest data.... things like passwords, bank card details and the whole history of everything you access online gets held in cookies and other data..

Seems like a genius idea to tell people to install known dodgy software.

Itís a good job ďhackyĒ is the brains of the operation.

Re: Blue & Me - Tech Info and questions and answers

Wow I wondered who was still going round telling people not to buy Lancias because the engine falls out

No one was advising ANYONE to use this browser as their default browser or for their banking or personal data use. It was for access to the Blueandme.net website which you were peddling as defunct and it is NOT.

Fake news Blueandme website is NOT defunct. Get over it you were wrong


Yes I left that particular forum and have not returned depite some PM's/emails asking me not to leave and how they too have left and had to come back in a disguise avatar refraining from engaging with certain members. Can you not see the word FORUMS top left or understand the difference of a plural even.......perhaps not...... but that said I will now leave this forum too as I have little interest wasting my time arguing with you and busy with a few Alfas sorting out their blueandme issues.

Re: Blue & Me - Tech Info and questions and answers

Hi Guys, Newbie here!

I've got a 500 with Uconnect 5.0 but since my phone updated to android 11 it broke connection.
When I try to pair it again after removing, the stereo reboots after about 2 mins of trying to establish connection.

I've searched high and low on fiat/uconnect/mopar websites to download a firmware update but going round in circles. Phone support is not available, however I did reach Fiat customer service who said they logged a ticket with uconnect.

On the uconnect website, you're supposed to be able to enter your VIN to download the latest firmware, but of course my car is not detected, maybe because im UK and its an EU website?

Any chance that someone else has already managed to get hold of the latest update and can link it? I'm sure there are plenty of frustrated fiat owners who are stuck listening to the damn radio now!

Thanks

PS - Blue and me i assume is the old name for uconnect?
