Hello,
If all goes as planned, I'll be renting a 159 Sportwagon in Milan. We'll be driving up to Lago Como then south to Modena (Manarello) and Tuscany to participate in vintage cycling event.
The Alfa website shows a 159 with a GPS, does anyone have any first hand knowledge if all 159 sportwagons come with GPS and is it in English?
Regards,
David

Yes they all come with the satelite navigator and the bConnect info-mobility services. Music, phone, and navigation are able to work off advanced voice recognition that doesnt need to "learn" your voice or speech patterns. Since its Microsoft based I imagine its easy to choose your own language.

I think it depends on what market we are talking about, but here GPS is extra option and costs 3300 euros..

It comes as an option, I would be suprised that rental cars have this option.
If they have it, Englisch want be a problem.
The system is from Magneti Marelli, and is a combination of GPS-radio-phone and board computer.

I would send the rental agency you will be dealing with an e-mail. I would assume that it would be in their best interest to have optioned out vehicles in stock. The system sounds really cool though :)

That sounds awfully expensive. :eek: It must include a mandatory subscription similar to Onstar.
