Title: Thesis UK map for Sat Nav
Post by: Paul Greenway on 29 January, 2012, 02:30:42 PM
Hi,

I am just in the process of importing a 2009 Thesis 2.4JTDm from Italy. The car has Sat Nav factory fitted and comes with a CD for Italian Mapping. Anyone got a full European disc including the UK or know of where I can obtain one?

Is it just a case of going to my local Alfa/Fiat agent and ordering one?

Hi Paul,

The current Lancia Satnav mapping is done by Navteq.  I have had a quick look at their website and they sell the maps for Thesis. 

The Lancia maps store is at http://www.navigation.com/is-bin/INTERSHOP.enfinity/WFS/Navteq-FiatEurope-Site/en_GB/-/GBP/View-Promo?Page=LanciaLanding&SelectedMenuItem=LandingHome&ProgramUUID=Lj0KCghBbosAAAEvsz0x.tSv&utm_campaign=homepage-logos&utm_medium=referral&utm_source=homepage-lancia-en&HideCrumb=true.

It looks like there should be 8 CDs in the box, covering all of Europe.  It may be worth checking with the vendor to see if they have the other CDs.  If they don't have them all, then the box of CDs is 229!

Thanks Stuart,

Have signed up with them and tried to order said discs, however the on line ordering process is hard work and keeps rejecting what ever I input.
Will try again when less frustrated.

Cheers,

Paul.

Still no joy with Navteq. Website will not accept any of my cards. Is there any other way of purchasing these CD's? Stockists etc.

can anyone advise?

As the Thesis CDs are also compatible with the Alfa 166 navigation system, it may be worth trying to get one from your local Alfa dealer.

Mine has the 166 disc. According to Ronnie Stuart, they didn't do a UK disc for the Thesis (although perhaps they did later on).

Why not speak to fiat UK, I expect there
is an alternative that would work, or an
eBay search,  also  It may be available
as a single disc in Italy, Germany, Belgium,
etc. There must be some foreign visitors
driving their cars around the UK.

It is possible to phone Navteq directly, so if you are still having problems, try giving them a call on 00800 18 23 53 22.
