Hi I am new to the site from the UK and hoping to find lots of information on your site.

I have just had a beautiful brand new. mini cooper D automatic countryman.
I am starting to get to grips with some of the technology onboard. I have the chilli pack with mini connect and sat nav. The main thing I need to know and cant find out how to do is for it to tell me the planned route in words so i can see it is taking me to the correct place before I move off.
Hope someone can help.

Ha! I hope your MINI doesnt think youre not trusting it to do it right, of course it will get you there in the end if youve put in the right postcode.

You need to sit down and read the manual right through properly, good bedtime reading it will send you to sleep no problem, its a bit heavy reading but its all in there.

maybe Im not trusting it but sometimes a postcode you are given is wrong and you need to confirm it with maybe the street. I have read the book about it and cant find on the sat nav what they are saying to do.Sometimes if you have to be there for a definite time you need to be sure,
