Hi all,

I have a 06 Punto Grande with the standard Bluetooth connectivty (no Blue & Me)

I'm trying to get a USB port for music playback installed in the car but so far have had both ideas for this ruled out. They were...

1 - Have Fiat upgrade the car to full Blue & Me spec.

My local dealer says this is not possible as it has to be factory fitted.

2 - Get a Blaupunkt USB/Bluetooth kit http://www.blaupunkt.com/uk/7607545500_main.asp

Apparantly not compatible with Blaupunkt OEM factory fitted stereos. Due to the software being different for the CD Changer controls than on aftermarket ones.

So, has anyone got any other ideas that might see me being able to plug in a usb key or my smartphone full of tunes?

Any help greatly appreciated!

Thanks for the idea but something like that would be a last resort for me, i'm looking for some way of connecting a USB device up to the CD Changer inputs really. (So that i can control all my stuff from the steering wheel) plus having that sticking out where the cigarete lighter is on a Punto Grande would be a bit of a nightmare.

Thanks again though,

anyone else?

Ideally I'd like to have something that will allow me to connect a portable USB hard drive up, and also my smartphone. I think Dension have a Gateway device, just not for Fiats yet.

Waiting...
