Mine completely stopped working yesterday - tried resetting the Ipod, plugging in and out, turning engine off etc.  Im going to do a battery reset later on but if that doesnt work I may have to kill it with fire!

    If you mean is it the same media adaptor?  Then yes.  Its the 90 odd quid B&M media adaptor, I got it from the Fiat dealer a couple of days ago.

    As far as I am concerned its just the B&M system being its usual unreliable self!

    As an earlier post said and this is vital:
    START THE ENGINE WITH IT NOT CONNECTED. PLUG IT IN AFTER START-UP AND ENJOY YOUR JOURNEY.
    Mine works absolutely perfectly. The trouble is that if you stop for a moment and turn the engine off (e.g. when I fill up / close the garage door etc) and then back on, it's easy to forget :banghead:
    You've just got to make it a habit - turn the key, unplug the USB.....
