Re: Newbie saying hello

It is deffo a GBT - the alloys are the giveaway, they are model specific.

And it should deffo have B&M. It's a 2012, so, see in your centre console, is there only one cup holder below the A/C controls ? And, to the right of it, is there a wee raised square that says Microsoft Windows Mobile (or something similar on it ?

And if you slide that wee raised square back, is there a USB port ? If so, you have B&M.

I note though, that it's an early 2012, so it's possible the B&M /USB connector is in the glove box like in the previous EVOs - if not on the centre console.

I can't remember how B&M is enabled/disabled, it's either an option in the car menu (use botton on the right), an option on the stereo, or you just need to install it via USB.

Have you checked the menus ?

Re: Newbie saying hello

Not all GBT's have Blue&Me. The older Punto Evo's had Blue&Me more or less across the entire range but Fiat cut the spec when they launched the 2012 Punto, so only Lounge/Sporting's have Blue&Me as standard and Easy/GBT models only get it if specced as an option or if they have the Brio Pack fitted.

If you have the Brio Pack you'll have Climate and Cruise Control plus parking sensors, along with Blue&Me. If you don't have that and Blue&Me wasn't specced as an option then it won't have it, sadly

Interesting, and just noticed that it is a 61 plate, which is a VERY EARLY 2012 model car..

Didn't think of the original spec lists, but everything has changed round since then so was only remembering the more recent specs which is POP, Easy, GBT, GBT Brio, jetBlack &Sporting

Re: Newbie saying hello

Suspecting it has BRIO, given it's got cornering foglights....

Re: Newbie saying hello

Thanks for all the replies.

I have no air conditioning or windows logo on the dash. No climate control.

But i do have cornering lights.

I will take a picture of my dash tomorrow morning and chuck it on here to see what you guys think..or see if you can get to the bottom of it as I am clueless!

I am guessing it's an easy model from the description that has been given?

But like i say, I will definitely get a few pics of the inside tomorrow and try a work it out. It is kind of like a krypton factor task.

Cheers!

Danny

Re: Newbie saying hello

It should definitely have air con (a button with a * on under the heater fan dial) if its an Easy or GBT trim.

However, cornering lights are fitted to all 2012 Puntos with front fog lights as far as I know.

I'd put money on it being a GBT without Brio Pack.

Re: Newbie saying hello

You know, you might just be right. Now that I think about it, was BRIO pack even available that early ? It's entirely possible, it's just been a factory order with Front fogs, and nada else.

Mine is a weird spec. GBT with basically lounge spec (full leather, etc), yet no fogs, no CC, and no auto climate control ! Does have B&M&Aux, and AC. Manufactured Nov. 2011, reg'd March 2012.

Re: Newbie saying hello

Here is some pictures of the dash and inside of the glove box. Sorry if they are rotated round to the right, I am posting off of my phone while at work. I think I have the basic GBT...no air con or anything...just the cornering lights. But i love the car. ..I think we are getting somewhere

the USB port would be in the tray - roughly where the shiny white spot is @ 2 - o'clock on the gear knob

I'm not sure about the aircon..as I've got climate..Totally different lower console,


do you have a USB port anywhere..??

Re: Newbie saying hello

No USB. It'd be visible in either of those pics, if it was there... so from that we can only conclude that it indeed does not have B&M / USB&Aux port.

The aircon is the middle button with the wee star

Edit: now that I think about it, if i remember correctly, you used to be able to get B&M without aux. Try pressing the media button a few times to see if it comes up with Blue & Me.

If not, stick with the parrot

Re: Newbie saying hello

I don't have a media button on the steering wheel or dash!. I think the best bet will be to just stick with the parrot. It's doing a good job.

Thanks for everybody's help. It's appreciated.

Cheers

Re: Newbie saying hello

Thought I would add that the dealership have run a wire from the parrot set up down the back of my dash and out just under the temperature dials....on the end it has an ipad/iPhone connector, aux in port and a wire for samsung phones....all bunched together quite discreetly.
