To deactivate Economy Drive. Plug the USB flash drive in from Fiat, into USB slot in the glove box. Push Blue and Me button on the steering wheel. Say Economy Drive. She will pomp you to activate, or deactivate. Say deactivate. That turns the stupid thing off.

Or you can just press buttons, speaking works too, glad you got it figured out though either way. :)

Couple of neat things I've not encountered on other cars:

You can make the EVIC display in Italiano if you wish.

You can establish different audio settings (treble, bass, balance, fade) for different sources (AM, FM, media, CD).
How do you make it in Italian? thats awesome!

If you get a flat tire and it's not repairable, you might have a hard time finding a replacement: in other words - buy a replacement now and keep it in your garage or house. Go to tirerack and see if you can get one if you don't believe me.

I don't know if this is new or just an accident, but the other day i was on the phone with Blue & Me, and i turned off the car and took the key out and i was still talking through the car. So the phone was still connected and working even though the car was turned off. It was interesting.

It won't last but so long (I think maybe 10-20 minutes) before it will cut off though, I found out just sitting there having a conversation for awhile before walking into a meeting, it cut out, my radio is set to stay on for 20 minutes after turning off the car so I manually turn it off usually unless I am sitting there after turning it off which happens when waiting for someone occasionally. Might be some other factor but I want to say it was just elapsed time that causes it to eventually cut the call from the car back to the handset.

I finally realized that I don't have to turn the car off, remove the key and press unlock to unlock the trunk... *facepalm*

Sport button only changes transmission characteristics and assist in power steering in the Auto, but changes throttle mappings/engine response and power steering steering assist in the 5 speed.

With the latest TOM TOM update, the blue&me TOM TOM shows the ground covered in snow...when it has snowed. I thought it was cool.
