New Tipo owner!

Hi guys

Picked up my Tipo Easy Plus on Friday there and have to say rather impressed with it!! Waiting for the dealership sorting out activating the Uconnect Live capabilities on my car but otherwise it's an enjoyable car

Just a shame you can't add SatNav capabilities to the in-built Uconnect Radio after its left the factory (kind of kicking myself not getting the Lounge model or paying the 250 option to have it fitted at the factory...) Surely at that kind of price it can't be much of a job adding it in?

Anywho got it in Tango Red and loving it!

Not 100% on it but I think there are hardware differences between the units that means it can't be done

As far as I can see, the main difference is the Nav units have the Nav button on them as opposed to the Trip button the non-Nav units have - if I knew the difference was 250 inwouldve either plumped for that or stretched tons Lounge model but im really happy with my Easy Plus anywho!

Will probably be a lot less hassle just using a plug in TomTom or something
