New Member - 595 competizione bought a day ago
« on: August 02, 2020, 09:09:41 am »
Hi All :wave:

Admins thank you for processing my registration so quickly.

Bought my 2017 595 Comp yesterday and love everything about it bar the 5 inch touch screen display and wondered if its possible to swap for the newer 7 inch version without too much bother.

My 21 year old son disappeared with the car yesterday so need to hide the keys in future!!

Thanks

Tony

    Report him to the Police :whistle:

    I'll move this to the 'UConnect' to get an answer. :thumb:

    Yes you can. Four of us have done it now with success.
    Obviously a new screen and trim is required, along with GPS antenna and then a coding alignment.

    Yes, I've changed mine from the 5" to the 7" recently. Have a spare headunit, it's a 7" with Nav. No airplay/android auto. You can fit a 7" from a Fiat 500, and make changes so it has the Abarth opening screen etc

    Fitment was easy. You will need a 7" surround unit, they are on eBay £35-50.

    Need Multiecuscan to do the proxi alignment.

    Hi everyone! New around here, I did this on a 2017 500e with an Abarth salvaged stereo from europe! Removed 5 inch and replaced with the Uconnect 7 NAV HD, only problem is I can not upgrade/replace the maps, and of course I have the Abarth splash screen, anyone know how can I get any Uconnect or maps updates and possibly modify splash screen??
