The snatch is the iPhone dock (holder and charger) for your Fiat 500 and Abarth 500. It charges and holds your iPhone in place by using the Fiat 500's dahsboard connector (integrated in many Fiat 500). With the snatch you can use hands free Siri and have all your apps always in sight. It is not only beautiful and convenient but also a lot safer than using other solutions.
The snatch is made specifically for the dashboard connector which is installed in many Fiat 500, Abarth 500, Fiat 500L and a lot more models by Fiat and Alfa Romeo. If your car does not have a dashboard connector - do not worry. It can be installed easily by your Fiat Service Partner in a couple of minutes.

We start with an all purpose black. If there is a high request of specific color we will produce it. Please understand that we cannot tell you more at this point.
We aim for a release in the 1st Quarter of 2015
The snatch is designed primarily for the Fiat 500 and Abarth 500. It uses the dashboard connector installed in many Fiat 500 and Abarth 500 but the connector can be also found in many Fiat Punto, Fiat Panda, Fiat Ducato, Alfa Romeo Mito and Alfa Romeo Giulietta.
We are prototyping the snatch. We have found a capable manufacturer who can deliver in short time and in decent quality once we are ready to go.
The price will range from 50 to 80 - USD. Please understand that we cannot tell you more at that point.
Our goal is to support iPhone 4 and 4s with the 30-pin connector and the iPhone 6, 5s and 5 with the lighting connector.
We focus on Apples iPhone first. But depending on the success we might consider producing variants for other phones.
For now high quality ABS. But the final version may differ.
Yes you or your Fiat Service Partner can install the connector yourself. We are considering selling the connector also in a special bundle with the snatch for DIY installation.
No the snatch only provides a stable hold and charging. But you can establish a connection between your iPhone and Fiat 500 via Bluetooth if your Fiat 500 supports the A2DP standard. This depends strongly on your specific model. There are also small adapters on the market that can be connected with your Fiat 500 to enable A2DP input to the Audio System. Another solution you might consider are 3rd Party Bluetooth speakers. Some have a shape that fits perfectly in the cup holder of your Fiat 500 and even provide a performance that is way beyond the Audio System that Fiat offers.
No we added small channels to redirect the sound of your iPhones speaker to the front of the snatch. They will not change the sound significantly, but make sure you hear your iPhone when it rings or gives you voice feedback. For better sound consider a bluetooth speaker made for cars or a solution that makes your Fiat 500 A2DP compatible.
