Giulia electronic problems

I've had a '17 Giulia TI with HK sound system for 1 month now. The Nav wasn't working out of the box, and was replaced by the dealer. Now the Nav works, but the odometer is flashing, indicating a problem with the car electronic system. Alfa sent a tech down but he couldn't diagnose it.

Also, I can't get the nav to respond to most of the voice commands, and can't figure out how to set the nav commands that aren't controlled by the rotary knob, such as the 2D vs 3D display. The Owner's Manual is pretty useless in this regard. Anyone else have similar problems with the flashing odo or voice commands?

This type of crap convinces me to drive my old cars till the day I die!! THANKS for convincing me!
Sorry, do you have a Lemon Law in your State?
Give me another one or I'm suing! That would be my next line at the dealer if I had to show up. You paid a "SLoad" of money for this car.
There should be NO POSTS or Worries.
ALFA should stand by their product or their integrity is gone.
Your time is worth money and taking it back and forth to get it fixed, it's wasting yours.

On the Giulia forum, there is talk of problems with the HK amp. Perhaps this is related?

Let me know if they find the cause of your CEL. My dealer (and Alfa USA) are (presumably) still trying to find the cause of mine, which started when they replaced the radio/nav. Do you have the HK sound system?

Have they found the cause of your CEL yet? Still waiting for a resolution of mine.
