For Mini connectivity you need to contact your dealer about accessories that's what it says on the website, currently the link to 'connectivity' indicates the page is down and no information available. I have asked my dealer and he says they do not have approved y cables or cradles as these are in development

My question was has anyone ever been provided with an official lead by Mini or the dealer network

This is because older versions of iDrive didn't have the correct chip in the combox. Hence the box in the y lead contains a chip and costs a lot. With new BMW iDrives and the new F56, the chip is built into the car. What basically happens is that if you put a y cable in an F56, it decodes the data twice, and will not work. Just use genuine USB socket, and it will work fine, as the chip is already built in. Trust me
