Alpine upgrade not compatible with satnav. Alpine amp powers up on receipt of input and there is a second or two delay. This means missing first bit of satnav instruction.
A better upgrade is to use an amp which can detect that the head unit is powered up. These are quite common now. After having an Alpine upgrade fitted by dealer, I got most of my money back and purchased a Hertz HE amp and this is superb.
