Sat Nav

Post by Peopleselbowpad » Thu Jul 13, 2017 6:35 pm

Hi,

First post so hello to everyone. I've just bought a C4 Cactus and I'm loving it so far. However I thought I'd try the Sat Nav and it came up with I needed to connect a Citroen Multicity Connect Dongle. Having no idea what this was a quick search of Google this is no longer supported.

My query is can I do anything so that the touch can be used as a Sat Nav? I can use my phone but it's seem rather silly when I have a larger device just sitting there.

Any help much appreciated.

Thanks

Hello and welcome to the forum..the Citroen connect dongle, afaik, refers to the internet options which doesn't work. The Sat Nav is only available on the Flair variant and is activated by pushing the last button on the left hand side of the main screen..after that all should be come clear😀

Could you replace the head unit with one from a Flair variant? If so would this then change the touch screen interface?

It really seems a shame to have a touch screen I can’t use as a sat nav.

I hate to think what a new unit would cost, used ones on ebay are aroun £200. It wouldn't just be a case of taking your one out and replacing one that has sat nav, your car would have to be configured for it by a dealer even if it is possible to swap, and that wouldn't be cheap either.

The Cactus sat-nav will get you to your destination but in my experience it isn't always the quickest or shortest route regarding what option you choose.

I'm going to attempt fitting a flair sat nav unit into my feel tommorrow, the touch screen is the same in the feel & the flair it just needs to be programmed to tell it it has sat nav, I'll let you know if it works or not

Cheers. I’ve seen them on eBay for around £200 but I did read they need to be coded to your car. I guess one problem at a time.

Yes it can be done, fitted it this morning took me an hour tops but I still have the aerial to fit. I had to code the smeg unit to the car & activate the sat nav button

So other than the head unit. What else would your average Joe like me need?
