First, let me say how happy I am with this forum. As a new owner and member of this forum, the level of activity and support is amazing - so my thanks to everyone.

Now to the questions:

Does anyone know how to get the navigation / center console flipped from Italian/European into English?

Does anyone know where to get the navigation cd/dvd?

Thanks in advance for any help!

Matt

Matt, that's a major downside to the Maseratis.

The nav system sucks. If you do a search on this board you'll see plenty of threads bemoaning that fact. The maps are poor, it's slow, and I've been told you often have to enter which "township" you're look for in addition to city and street. I was looking for the CD's myself until so many folks here advised me against it. Eventually I'm just going to replace the stereo/nav with an after-market setup as some on this board have done. Until then I have a nice little Garmin Nuvi I'm using.

Good luck! There are so many other great things about these cars we can forgive them this one weakness.

Yes it is!

And if you haven't added the FD drive-by-wire modification and a performance exhaust, just wait until you do! Incredible improvements. I'm told the Formula Dynamics springs are another requisite upgrade, but I have to wait a bit on those.

I've heard about the DBW several times today, but given that the car just arrived, I need to allow the bank account some rest before I upgrade...

New nav/audio system

And if you're interested, I am working on a system to integrate the Kenwood Portal system which uses Garmin nav, a new tuner, XM, Sirius, Bluetooth, etc in our cars (2002-5or 6 Spyders & coupes). I have just had the plate 3D scanned and the modeller is finishing the new design. Next week the first prototype will be made. Expect to have it available a few weeks after that. It uses a 7" touch screen. The intent is to make theis as OEM looking as possible while getting all the enhancements. Here is an early render of the new screen & surround. Looking for switches and finishing touches. Here is a link to the discussion. http://www.maseratilife.com/forums/showthread.php?t=6445
