Giulia navigation update
« on: December 27, 2019, 01:38:54 PM »
Is there any update for the factory Nav/maps available? The system works fine, but the maps in Victoria are so so so outdated. When I spoke to the dealership a couple of months ago they've said that I have the latest maps, but I found it really hard to believe.

When I went to the Mopar website and entered my VIN, it offered an update for the Europe map was uploaded in Dec 2019, so it's quite new, but what can I do with it? Lol I don't want to drive around Germany, I want to use my QV in Melbourne and Victoria.

So any other sources available?

This is of course why Alfa Romeo in Australia is a complete joke. The problem is NOT with the cars, the problem is, and always has been Alfa Romeo Australia itself! (in all forms it has been over the years)   >:( >:( >:(

This is simply ridiculous. I'll buy that apple carplay adapter from KAP so I can use google maps on the screen.

Found this Youtube video on How to upload latest maps for your later model Alfas.  As I do not have a car to try on, I am unable to verify if the Mopar website works and whether maps available for AUS.

Nah, they have updates for Europe and USA every 6 months, but just a big nothing for Down Under since early 2018 LOL.

Hello, I'm new to this forum and although we have owned lots of Alfas our recently acquired 2018 Veloce is our first Alfa with inbuilt navigation. We love the car but the maps are years out of date and it appears there are no local updates and no interest from Alfa Australia in providing any.
I was in a budget 2014 Suzuki yesterday and it had up to date maps. It's just expected.

The maps in the 2018 Veloce (Map 991.8471) as they stand are not "fit for purpose" at best and possibly dangerous if they are giving instructions on how roads were 3 or 4 years ago.

Why don't we approach Alfa Romeo or consumer affairs as a group and insist on updates for our inbuilt mapping system?

Don't hold your breath rc211e.
When navigation is crucial, I use Waze or Google maps.
Otherwise, I use Alfa's included navigation which can make life interesting.
The problem for Australian owners of the Giulia is that there are few of us.  The market for AR here is so small, investing in updates for a few customers will never be a priority.
