Infotainment Upgrade - 595 Series 4
« on: October 07, 2018, 07:40:13 PM »
Good evening all,

I have a series 4 595 Competizione. It currently has the base infotainment module (UConnect 5" - no Nav).

Has anyone inquired, or tried to upgrade this to the Uconnect 7" touchscreen  kit?

I'd be interested (ignoring cost for now) if this is something that can be done? I know Fiat fit this module (with different software in the 500X and Spider) and also the fitment between the upper vents on the dash is the correct housing size.

Thanks in advance.

James

I got the 7Ē and to be fair I donít really rate it well. Apart from Apple car play which is good. The system itself is just slightly bigger/nicer to look at.  but very laggy to use. So much so I donít even bother going though all itís features.  To much bull info on the screen.  Perhaps Iím just old school.. for those wishing for a 7Ē system on your cars Iím not so sure your really missing out on anything special. Its my exhaust I want to be listening to when Iím driving  not the radio lol

Old school here too, I only use basic functions on the 7 inch system in the XSR. Radio occasionally and the Sat Nav.
