Well, about a year ago, i had a usb enabled head unit - the on dash types. My daughter always fancied the multi-colored head unit and then the USB drive would emit neon lights. She alays tried to figit with it.

Just when i thought she would be responsible to break it, it was my wife who actually broke it. tried to remove the water bottle from the holder below, hit a bump on the road, accidently hit the usb drive and the usb connection points were bent. The drive was dead after that.

So personally, from my own past experience, I love it that that the USB is in the glove box, nice tucked away from accidents.
+1 to that.

I too just love the position of the USB port in the glove-box in my GP :-)

People are so strange. When i read about the USB in the glove box on the Overdrive Magazine, they made it sound like a stupid thing to do.

Hi Guys,

Thanks a lot for the information, will try and locate the drive in my new punto - I am still to explore that arena and yes the delivery is expected on Tuesday.

It would really be great if you could click a snap and upload it here. That way many people like me would be able to benefit out of it.

Regards,
Kailash

Punto owners, Zigwheels has announced Punto as the Premium Hatchback of the year 2009. Lots of proud owners I see.

Atleast Zigwheels got something right .

I hope that the Punto builds on it's strengths, follow it up with constant upgrades.

I read this thread from page 1 to last. You have gone through a lot of tensions from PDI and repalcement of a new car even before you got to drive a kilometer.

In the end glad to note that you are happy witht he Punto.

Now that B U Bhandari are no longer the dealers of Fiat/Tatas wonder where you get the after sales service.

Its a sure loss for us FIATins as BUB was better of the lot but then we currently have Pundit and couple of others for servicing.
