No need for a iPhone/iPod Adapter on new Fiats

I picked my Evo up on Friday which works flawlessly with my iPhone 3GS and was quite shocked by this! But anyway heres why...

SEE HERE

"No software upgrade is needed if the SET USB and USB OPTIONS items are present in the MEDIAPLAYER menu.
Furthermore, you can plug your Apple media player into the USB port without needing the Blue&Me adapter for iPod and iPhone.
The new function should be available on cars with chassis number higher than:
- Fiat 500 chassis number 504557
- Bravo chassis number 4300440
- Grande Punto 703814/1693432*
- Punto EVO 707377/1700694*"

Re: No need for a iPhone/iPod Adapter on new Fiats

Does your car read out all the tracks to you when you plug it in and then pick a song and play a different one? also does it talk to you in italian and swap from the radio to the media player every few minutes??

Re: No need for a iPhone/iPod Adapter on new Fiats

I've been using an 8gb memory stick and it's been flawless, I may have to try this though. I've got 400 miles on mine now, it's been great, the only minor niggle I have is the clutch pedal squeeks!

Must be an update to newer models (got mine in May) as mine needs the adapter to work!

Re: No need for a iPhone/iPod Adapter on new Fiats

Mines a 60 too? So.. What firmware version do you have on the iPhone only reason i ask is i haven't upgraded still on 4.0, When in media player do you see "No software upgrade is needed if the SET USB and USB OPTIONS items are present in the MEDIAPLAYER menu"
If not it may need your Blue & Me updating to 5.5 which i suggest having done at dealer as people have had issue when doing it themselves and its gone wrong

Can't believe you got rid of a Mini for a Punto Evo! I'd swap my Evo GP for a Mini any day!

I know this is going to sound obvious but...

Make sure your music is in the mp3 format rather than iTunes default of Aac or mpeg4.

Every customer iPod problem I had was down to this. I used to have a thumb drive with mp3s on it specifically to show there were no problems with the blue&me media player.
