    Can someone update on the details of the 2013 model ICE?

    - Differences are 6 spearkers in all the Blue&Me variants (not sure if the front are components)
    - Remote control added to Blue&Me variants

    My interest would be to add the remote control to the existing setup. Most of the BluenMe users would prefer adding the remote setup as steering controls are the only option right now. Does anyone have a picture of the 2013 music player? Does it have a IR sensor to receive remote signals?

    Made a visit to Vecto today for a running repair. Had a chance to visit the showroom as well. The player in the 2013 90hp car looks the same. Not sure Where's the sensor for receiving remote signal or maybe the showroom cars don't have these feature. Has anyone seen this remote yet?

    Hi,

    I just got a call from KHT SA. While on the conversatio i happen to enquire about this remote support. I was surprised about what Vecto SA said. As per KHT SA, remote control is supported in Dynamic and below variants and not in Emotion (90Hp) variants since Emotion comes with steering mounted controls.

    No Remote support can not be added to Emotion models.

    May be he didn't go through the brochure properly and is adding his logical ideas. It's clearly mentioned both steering control and remote control are available only in Emotion and 90HP variants.

    But is there a visible IR receiver somewhere? I have checked the 2013 model Punto (with gun metal alloys) and it's no different from the older players and doesn't seem to have any IR receiver. Also the dealer said they didn't receive any remote from the factory along with the vehicle.

    so where things are going haywire here. Brochure must be wrong or dealers are not having correct stocks.

    Exactly the same thing happend when the TJET was being launched the first time around on October 2010. They had the "remote" mentioned everywhere and i do even remember seeing a picture as well. But once in showrooms, the JET lost the magical "remote".
