Connect Via Bluetooth

SMS functionality can be accessed by Alfa Romeo drivers by connecting their smartphone to their Alfa Romeo vehicle via Bluetooth. This enables the driver to receive and send SMS notifications and messages directly from their Alfa Romeo vehicle. To get started, drivers must first add their phone to their Device list in their Alfa Romeo vehicle’s main display. This can be achieved by tapping the Bluetooth menu and then clicking Add Device on your vehicle’s centre screen. Your phone’s Bluetooth pairing feature must be active for it to properly connect to the vehicle.  

Configure Your SMS Settings

Once paired, drivers can go into their phone’s Bluetooth settings to configure their vehicle’s permissions. From here, drivers will be able to allow or block notifications from appearing on their vehicle’s main display. Drivers can also sync their contacts with their Alfa Romeo vehicle, making it easy to stay connected while on the go. 

SMS Messaging Features

With SMS messages and notifications enabled, drivers can have messages sent directly to their Alfa Romeo display. To avoid distraction, the system will automatically read out the message over the vehicle’s sound system. Alfa Connect even includes a series of pre-written replies to common messages and inquiries, allowing drivers to safely reply to their contacts without having to stop the vehicle.
