I ordered a Grande Punto Dynamic last week with the CD/MP3 option. Because I have to wait like 2 months for it I deceided to start making MP3 Cd's of my music collection, but I have a question. Can the Blaupunkt MP3 player read Id3 tags and also I would like to know if the player is able to see folders because that would make the organizing process a lot easier. Thanks for the help!:)

I don't own a Grande Punto :)cry:) but I would hazard a guess that it would be able to see folders and I'm pretty sure it would read id3 tags too (y)

mp3 CD's are easy to make, just use Nero or Easy CD Creator and make a data CD with the mp3 files on - sorted (y)

.mp3 mine are all in that format

I think that the technical aspects(not the shape) of the radio in the new Punto are the same as for example the Idea and Panda. It's important because I can't continue now making a nice collection with MP3 because if it's possible I would like to use folders on my CD.

@Bob in disguise, Why you are not using it? :eek: It's great because you can put like about 170 songs on one CD!

Bob, it all depends on the player, my JVC one will play wma's, but Sony units, for example, won't

I've always just plugged my mp3 player into the car and used all the music on that, but now i got to start using the mp3 thingy when i get my punto in a few weeks :eek:

EDIT: was just looking on blaupunkts website and their normal head units say they support varible bit rates so would this mean it play .wma as well as .mp3?

No, variable bitrates is about the quality of the MP3's and doesn't mean it can also play WMA. It should say specificaly that it plays WMA.

The radio's for the Grande punto that has the MP3 option can't play WMA's.;)

All my music files on my pc are .wma :eek:

Is there a way of getting them to burn as .mp3 to play on the cd player in the car then?

Erm if you have a spare few hours and a copy of Sony Soundforge, Easy CD Creator or one of those mp3 converter programs it's possible

Just been reading about the new Blue & Me Bluetooth system that Fiat have been showing at the Geneva Motor Show. http://www.its-gsa.de/blueandme/fiat/Home.aspx

Just wondering, if this is the system that will be fitted to the Sporting as the description sounds very similar to what is in the Grande Punto brochure, if it is then you will be able to plug your MP3 player straight into the car and use the voice controls to access the tracks:cool:
