    I have tested this in 2 different new Lineas (a T-jet and a MultiJet).

    About the upgrade in new Linea, it's just the HU and not Blue and Me. Blue and Me is supposed to provide A2DP profile. However, there are many websites falsely quoting (or speculated feature) Bluetooth streaming, which they must have misunderstood for Handsfree.

    Even the advanced offering of BluenMe TomTom doesn't support Bluetooth streaming of music.

    AFAIK new Linea doesn't have A2DP in B & M. I was present at the launch of new Linea at Pandit Auto, pune.

    Our forum member kedarbendre and I tried to connect his Sony Xperia to B & M

    I use this app to stream music through B&M but quality is not that good. 7uvenemu.jpg

    The App is good and you can receive phone calls to.
    Try it out yourself. You might like it.

    Quality is low because it streams music over single channel (Mono).

    This is very sad.

    2 major features that i was looking for the upgrade

    1. A2DP streaming on BnM. This has started becoming available even in cheap HUs, but FIAT being the first to bring in bluetooth connectivity on HU, not bringing in this feature is a huge let down. I dont think this is going to come in the near future since FIAT would plan on usnig the same unit acorss Punto and Avventura variants as well.

    2. The flexibility to change tracks of USB from HU buttons and display of tracks in HU Display. I was hoping this will be an enhancement as well in the new linea. If this is also not possible in the new one, i dont think FIAT is thinking through the minds of an Indian family and conditions. Everytime, i plug the USB, if only the driver has control over what is playing, it isnt the best model for indian conditions. I dont know why FIAT needs to have USB media play only through BnM. there are several HUs that offer a USB direct interface !

    It is disappointing for me, if the above observations are true !

    Narayan sir, the only good option seems is that you use remote provided by Fiat with the HU.

    :(I wish that worked. You can't change the USB tracks with the remote either. Only option to change tracks while playing from USB is the steering control buttons.

    Fiat really made this tricky. The Aux. Input in new Linea is really very welcomed though

    Please use "BlueMe" for apple phones . the sound is not that great as it uses the phone mode to connect to the blue and me. the software is INR 250 on appstore but as of now yeah i can play audio directly through my phone.

    if anyone needs a demo in Navi Mumbai , i would be obliged to provide one.
