I still am trying to figure out why I should go out and buy the Mini Aux/Usb cable?
When I can remember to do so, I use my White Apple cable to connect the phone to the car, just to get Mini Connected to work!! That is frustrating in itself, why can't the Mini Connected App work via Bluetooth??
So when I use the usb cable to connect, that leaves the Aux socket empty, what functions am I missing out on by not having the Aux socket used??
I don't have Sat nav in the car,so I use the Sat Nav on the iPhone, I don't get any commands through the car or the phone!!? How can I get the voice commands of my iPhone to come through the cars speakers??

Regards

As far as I'm aware, the F series cars don't need the Y cable. Dealer never mentioned it when picking up the MINI, but when collecting the BM he told me just to use the Lightning cable.

some people have incompatible phones or media players - even some of the early iPods won't work. Believe it or not I've got (and occasionally use, because the sound is better) a first edition iPod and that doesn't run on usb at all. The only way to connect would be with the stereo jack.

When I test drove the mini, I produced my nokia 1020 phone running on windows phone - i.e., neither apple os or android. The salesman said I'd need to use the stereo jack to connect. Turned it on, paired it - works a treat without any cables.
