    I have just bought an Abarth Sat Nav Unit with Telemetry for my Evo from an Abarth dealer in Essen Germany. Not cheap at £340 but works no problem in my Evo, pairs up with Blue and Me in my car. Sat Nav is excellent with option of multi-languages, I haven't had a chance to try out the telemetry yet so when I do, I will let you know.

    Part number is 5743391 if anyone interested.

    Not sure whether it's available in the UK though or what price as mine comes from Germany!

    I expected as much but wasn't confident enough to take a punt, give a full write up once you've had a good play.

    Full european mapping I take it, does the mount and unit fit in the car anywhere when you park, the glovebox is small I struggle to get my smartphone mount in.

    I have managed to order one of these to see what it's like.
    Dont hold your breath as it may never arrive but if it does we will see if it works in the U.K. :wave:

    Fully fits the Evo, bluetooth connection works no problem, voice activation and dashboard mapping compliant once paired up, full european maps included and the best bit; the telemetry works! Works with engine speed and gear in use, with some sort of mapping, I presume for when use on track. Has preset race tracks on the nav which includes the likes of Brands Hatch, Silverstone, Rockingham and other popular european tracks as well. Not tried on tracks yet so cannot comment.

    Fully recommend one for the gadget people, as it's a great toy (I mean tool) to play with if you can justify it's price to pay of £340 or thereabouts depending on the euro exchange rate. Fits the A500 as well.

    Downside: being a european model, it comes with a euro 2-pin plug but add an aditional UK 3-pin adaptor to it, then charges up no problem.

    So far, I'm very happy with it, worth the effort in finding out and locating German dealer to purchase one.  :)  :thumb:

    There is no hook up port on the 500 so where did you try it?

    Yes, full european mapping included, multi-languages option as well and mount fits well in the dashboard slot, charges up the nav unit whilst in use and fits in the glovebox absolutely no problem, quite a small mount. Eliminates all those unwanted and unsightly wires completely, just mount and sat nav, that's it.  :thumb:

    Sorry, didn't realise UK 500's doesn't come with a plug in port, must be only european 500's that does unless the new build 500's will have them. Picture in my Abarth brochure shows a 500 with a nav unit mounted to the dashboard.

    In that case, I retract my statement that it works in the A500's.   :oops:

    Obviously, only works in the european A500's!

    Something to advise Abarth to build into future UK A500's?

    excellent, thanks for the update, don't suppose you know if its 1hz or 10hz updates in the track mode.

    Can probably buy a UK tomtom charger.
