Oh dear... based on earlier posts I'm thinking this is less about spiked UK Indian summers and more about a poorly set temperature sensor. Job for local Abarth dealer??

Could be a faulty sensor, mine has done it today. I had my radio replaced after the first unit did this fairly frequently. This unit has been fine except the Uconnect wouldn't work for about 6 months then a big update came out for it, fixed that issue. Only as the temperature has started to go down outside has the issue reappeared. If anything I'd say it's an issue when it starts getting cold and damp outside again. It happened today and I needed the nav to get home from where I was. Luckily I had a vent mount handy for my iPhone.

Touch wood here, mine did it once and I turned off pretty much every "auto display" and "start CarPlay when connected" option as well as options for displaying on the TFT front display and I've not had a problem since.

Time will tell.

Took mine in yesterday for another update to fix the issue, least thats what I got told it should do when I took it in for a service. Guess what come to the car tonight after work and the screen is blank again!  >:( Im fuming about this issue, It was like this when I got the car, had the unit replaced as they said it was faulty, worked fine through the summer comes except for unconnect not working. Got an update done, unconnect came back and the unit worked fine, soon as the cold weather hit again it starts happening again. Must be the temp sensor or something. I'm gonna kick off about this time as I've spent way too long waiting around the local dealership to get little niggling issues fixed. I've not paid for an upgraded unit with Satnav only to find When I need the satnav the screen won't work  ::)

AND mine did it again the other day, it's rare for me but it didn't right at the moment I needed my AirPlay for navigation. Couldn't even use the built in navigation.
I went for fuel and left it off, shut down the car while filling up and then it worked again.

Must be one of these chips that have a security issue or Apple battery preserver built in :)

Still, we no doubt look forward to the future of computer controlled cars...

Actually the funniest thing mine did was not turn off, wouldn't turn off at the shops but nothing worked. I had a feeling it would fix itself when I got back to the car and it did but that was a funny moment.

Had mine done today at Stonearce  Wolverhampton. Took just over an hour, but that included a full vehicle health check and fluid top ups too, with a full report via text and a car clean inside and out. All at no charge.
Have to say very impressed with the service provided.
