Bose Speakers is not an issue, it’s the Bose headunit/screen that is not compatible...as all outlined in the email to those on the list.

Bose system <> Bose NIT though

From the Academy book:

Three hardware versions are available for the Magneti Marelli NIT:
HW 7: only for the GranTurismo up to Assembly 42930, and for all models for the Japanese market
HW 8.0: GranTurismo from MY09 (from Assembly 42931), Quattroporte Restyling and GranCabrio for all the markets, except USA, Canada and Japan
HW 8.1: GranTurismo from MY09, Quattroporte Restyling and GranCabrio (GranTurismo Convertible) for USA and Canada markets

As far as I can see the Bose NIT was only fitted to the QP

The Bose NIT is available as option for the Quattroporte Restyling (MY09 & MY10)
The Bose NIT is a standard equipment for the Quattroporte Restyling model (MY09 & MY10), for the USA and Canada markets.
Since February 2010, the Bose NIT is no longer available for all the markets.

Bose DSP shouldn't make much difference, but Matt is the guru.

And here's me thinking that if it says Bose on the head unit, that's what it is. What an idiot I am ;)

In my defence, you can see (perhaps) why I'm confused:




Infotelematic Systems: Quattroporte – GranTurismo - GranCabrio

While the previous chapter gives an overview of the technology used in the infotelematic systems in modern motor vehicles, the goal of this chapter is to give the reader a detailed description of the infotelematic units (NIT) and related systems as found in the recent Maserati models. The following systems are described:

Blaupunkt NIT (Quattroporte up to MY08)
Magneti Marelli NIT (GranTurismo, GranCabrio and Quattroporte Restyling)
Bose NIT (Quattroporte Restyling, optional)
Bose Surround Sound system (all models)
Rear seat entertainment system (RSE) (only for Quattroporte models, optional)
TV node (only for Quattroporte models, optional)
MMBC system (Maserati Multimedia Business Center) (only for Quattroporte Collezione Cento model)

Have we had a similar discussion before (in which case I should really learn from my mistakes)?

Great news, both of the main boxes turned up today, just waiting on the audio cables that appear to have been lost in the post. Typical the parcel from the other side of the world turn up before the ones from Cambridge!

I do need to apply the hard and software modifications to the boxes but I anticipate shipment in about a weeks time.

Audio cables being delivered tomorrow...I have been assured.

We are going to get Paul at Prestige to install the first kit before we ship...just to be on the safe side.

Who's going in first then as guinea pig? (St Albans)

First to shout gets it and ill ship your kit direct to him if you an arrange a time.

That's great news Matt. Has there been any progress on arranging remote installs by Paul? Or are you waiting until he installs the first one to ensure all the kit works fine?

Cheers,

That’s the plan.

Still need to know who wants to go first with Paul?

Email sent to the pair of you to tie up the install, I am going up to Zep's tomorrow to oversea his install and driving back Saturday afternoonpast Paul's. I'll hand drop your kit to him.

I'm on family holiday from 18-25 April so upon my return and the successful install of the above, I will ship to you all for the end of April

If any of you would like me to send your kit direct to Paul@Prestige Installs for him to hold, please email me: admin@sportsmaserati.com
