Charger cable
« on: June 20, 2017, 07:02:10 pm »
Anyone got problems with the onboard charge in the car, on their B&M device ? (I have a Punto Evo)
I´m trying to find a charger cable so i can recharge it at home, or via the cigg. lighter.
But they´r not easy to find it seems...

    I have one of those that i plug in to a socket in the cars dashboard. On the device it self, there is a "4 pin" slide in the back for that mount in the car. Others are mini usb, headphones and of course the socket for the wall socket / cigg lighter charger.. 

    Could have showed you a pic, but links are not alowed.  Mybe i can take a pic tomorow . If i´m aloud to post my own pics??

    Spoke with the local Abarth dealer today, and they say the Cable only comes as a bundle. Can´t be ordered without ordering the hole package!! But still..if i can figure out why the cars integrated system does´nt charge as it should, i wont need one.

    Issue solved. Made a reset on the "sat nav unit" and then it started to charge in the cars Tomtom socket againg! Had made a upgrade a few Days ago. So might have been that upgrade that made it to stop charging!?? Who knows, but anyway..it´s working now so...

    #124Abarthreplica  Thank´s  :)  To bad i have to buy a new phone though. My Sony Z1 Compact does´nt seem to have any compatibility according to the B&M website. But the Z3 Compact does, so might try to find one of those, even if they´re a bit old now.  Well well...can´t get it all  :)

    At least a Z3 should be cheap as it's old!

    Not for sale anymore though. So i won´t bother with the bluetooth at all. Not worth buying a brand new phone for this. And the ones that i can buy, are not listed  either, so it probably would´nt help anyway. I´ve got the map and the telemetry and that will do. Maybe an update for the navigation instead..!?
