Blue&Me TomTom for Abarth Punto Evo

Tuesday, August 3rd, 2010

The new Abarth Punto Evo comes as standard with a dedicated port for a new satellite navigation solution jointly developed by Fiat and TomTom.

The port, which carries its own power, allows the new Blue&Me TomTom to be mounted securely on top of the dashboard without the need for bulky windscreen mounts or trailing wires.

The system also integrates with the car’s Blue&Me system, and can be controlled via the steering wheel-mounted buttons.  The system can even warn you if you have insufficient fuel to complete your jouney, and can then direct you to the nearest petrol station. Routes are calculated using TomTom’s IQ Routes technology which uses real-world data collected from millions of journeys regarding rush hours, traffic lights, schools and shopping crowds.

The new Blue&Me TomTom for Punto Evo is available to buy now from the Abarthisti shop for £259.99.

Blue&Me phone compatibility and instructions

Sunday, September 14th, 2008

The UK Abarth models feature Fiat’s Blue&Me technology as standard. This primarily allows you to connect your phone wirelessly via Bluetooth to the car’s built-in hands-free system, and to play MP3s from your iPod or a USB stick. You can also use a series of voice commands to control the car’s stereo and, depending on your phone, dial numbers, answer calls and have SMS text messages read out to you.

The Fiat UK website has a mini-site that explains the basics of Blue&Me: Fiat UK Blue&Me.

You can also download a PDF document that covers Blue&Me functionality in greater detail: Blue&Me info (pdf), Blue&Me instructions (pdf).

A list of compatible phones is also available here: Blue&Me compatible phones.

And there’s a whole bunch of useful information on the Fiat Group website, including info on how to change languages and how to add the SMS reader to older versions of Blue&Me: More Blue&Me info.
