Have bought a Cooper S w/Visual Boost, no Sat Nav, but have iPhone 6 w/Garmin App. Within App you can purchase the Vehicle Display Integration, which is suppose to display Nav map from iPhone to an external display installed on some vehicles. Has anyone done this? Would hate to pay $50 for something that doesn't work.

Cheers!

Does the Garmin app say it's compatible with Mini Connected?

Mini Connected doesn't seem to work with any other apps then it specifies, and Garmin is not one of them at my last check (I think).

You do have the option in the US of buying the Mini Portable Navigation which attaches near your speedo cluster for not a vast amount of cash. It's oddly expensive in the UK.

$265


Your other option is to get a CravenSpeed iPhone Mount, as they are super neat mounts for Minis.

According to MINI USA the sat nav is $435 and the click and drive system is $150 = £$585. I bought mine in UK for £265 all in.
The click and drive will accept any Garmin unit.

Sure thing, I was only quoting the cost on MINI Configurator USA. Fitting not included, although you'd hope a click n drive thing doesn't cost much to fit. It looks like it attaches with the 3 screws behind the tach.

Fitting of the Click and Drive base unit takes around 15mins, it takes about another 45 mins to route the cable across to the power connections.
I paid £100 for the base unit and £165 for the sat nav, the sat nav I already had did not work correctly with the traffic receiver built in to the base.

The Garmin support site says no.

Click & Drive model

Hi, do you know if you can use any Garmin to connect to the click & drive system or does it have to be the one branded Mini? Also do you know what Garmin model the Mini branded Portable sat Nav is?

Thanks

If you want live traffic updates you need to use the MINI branded one, it is a modified 2497. I tried a Garmin 2497 but the traffic did not work, were as the MINI branded one did, I contacted Garmin who confirmed it was different but would not say why.
But the holder can be used with any Garmin unit.
