Semi-Integrated Sat Nav Question

Hi,
I've just recently purchased a second-hand Mini Clubman and am looking for some information/advice.

My initial drive home involved the typical sat nav stuck to the middle of the windscreen and plugged into the cigarette lighter - which is less than ideal.

I'm looking into possibly having the semi-integrated sat-nav option fitted but had some questions that people might be able to answer for me.

If I've read up in the accessory correctly, the sat-nav provided is effectively a re-branded Garmin Nuvi 2240?

If that's the case, then Mini are wanting to charge something close to 200 for a sat-nav that's effectively discontinued with the last few being sold elsewhere for around the 70 mark.

The question is.... is the semi-integrated nav mount restricted to this and ONLY this model of sat-nav, or can a newer one (from same manufacturer) be used instead?

Looks as if the mount just uses the Garmin ball mount which looking at the Garmin website is still in use. I think the part number is 65902218327. There is a bracket 65902348477 for the wider Garmin XL but it looks to be a flat surface so I don't know why that would be needed. So in summary I can see no reason why you can't buy the mount and add any Garmin you fancy.

Some people are like a Slinky ........ not really good for anything, but you still can't help
but smile when you shove them down the stairs
