Title: Blue&Me Windows port swap out?
Post by: Jaffa on July 03, 2017, 07:42:36 am
Morning all,

I'm new to the forum and picked up my first Abarth 500 over the weekend (2009).

I have done some searches but could find anything.  Is it possible to replace the Windows blue&me port in the centre console with the aux&usb port or not?

Anybody know/tried it?

Regards,

Nick

Yes it does mate, I had issues with my blue & me, wouldn't update, randomly played music etc. In the end I brought a new port from a fiat dealer on eBay. I used a pen knife to slip under the old one's edge and it popped out with no scratches. If I remember correctly  there's a plug that needs removing and reconnecting on the new one. Fixed my issues, and music plays fine now and I was able to update to the latest version of b&m.

Thank you Mark,

Much appreciated.  Yeah I tried one of the simple £5 3.5mm jack cables to start with but they occupy the same port on the head unit as the USB slot I've got so I think this might be the route to take now.

Cheers!
