Installing Sat Nav on a Non-Sat Nav Mini

Hi there, as some of you probably have seen I have had some trouble with my Chrono Pack, I come across this when searching for a new chrono lens.



What other components would I need to install this and how much would they roughly cost?
TV function would have been great too!!

Thanks for your help!

It's a big job!
If you do a search on here for retro fit factory sat nav, that should come up with some results...

Big and expensive. For the amount of money that you will spend you can buy a really good portable unit for half the cost.

It can be done, but even if you get it for a half-decent price, it's a big and complex job.

I wouldent consider it, I know people that have alot of electrical experience in ICE fitting and have given up trying to do it!
Give it a search on the ICE Forum and should throw up some results, as far as im aware theres only one guy that has successfully done it?!

im going to buy the sat nav kit privately and go and see about having it fitted at the dealer if they will consider doing it.

Does anyone also know what you need to have the TV function working?

They'll do it, but it will cost a fortune, and I mean a fortune.

I think you just need the module from BMW.

Hello there.

I know this post is pretty old. However, if there are people like me, who were now thinking about the same, I have an answer for you ALL from original and proper MINI CENTER. See below.

''Good afternoon Veronika

Thanks for your message.

The Sat Nav screen needs to be specified on manufacture, as it's to do with the way the MINI is built.

If it's not specified the car is built a slightly different way, meaning official MINI Sat Nav will not work.

I'm sorry to disappoint you, but all navigation systems must be ordered at the manufacturing stage and can't be retrofitted.

If there are any other questions you may have in the future, please get back in touch.

Thanks
Stephanie

I think that would have to be incorrect. First Gen mini nav systems are and option to retrofit. It's only a fair bit of work - a better option would be to use a tablet/pad and mount. Better operating software and more up to date maps.
