Cool Sedici Bosch GPS???

Hi Everybody!

Maybe someone could help me?
I just bought a new Sedici Lounge and I'm pretty happy, but...
The navigation system is a Bosch Multimedia Compact and the maps are not up-to-date.
So, I would like to download an update or buy a new map, but I don't know which one to select (TomTom?).

Does anybody knows this?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Cheers!

Re: Sedici Bosch GPS???

I am totally confused as to what a Fiat Sedici Lounge is. I presume your GPS is in built, and the vehicle rather than new, is a Used model. I have owned many cars with in built GPS systems, and all have had their weaknesses. Personally I find that Tom Tom are the best buy and probably a new unit would be cheaper than up dating your Bosch unit.

Unhappy Re: Sedici Bosch GPS???

Hello!

Thanks for your comments.

I'm living in Belgium, so I guess the title "Lounge" belongs to this country.
It's a 4wd 2000cc with all options (except the key-free stuffs: didn't seems useful to me).
Well, it's not a used car. It's a fairly new one (version 2012, delivered Feb 2013) and, indeed, the GPS is a build-in one.
So, maybe it's just because it's new than nobody knows about it...

Cheers!

Re: Sedici Bosch GPS???

The Sedici Lounge looks a very nice motor, and it is still in production. I always enjoy driving on the continent and must say I find a r.h..d. vehicle quite comfortable when driving on the right. I would not rule out importing a Sedici Lounge when 07 passes away.

Re: Sedici Bosch GPS???

Sorry to hear nobody's actually bothered to answer you. I also just bought a Sedici and am facing the same situation as you.

I know this thread is pretty old, but I'd be really interested in if or how you ended up solving the matter...

Re: Sedici Bosch GPS???

I had done a quick search and this seemed the most relevant as the head units for each of the models are quite different but over the weekend I'll have a proper "look-see" Thanks varesecrazy

Re: Sedici Bosch GPS???

Thanks for that but it seems to be a different unit. I've since found a site selling updated maps for the unit but nothing for central america and there seems to be no information on potential compatibility with other brand/format maps

... why can't we just run Waze on it?
