Hi guys,
I have just bought a Dension Gateway 300 unit from NewMiniStuff.com for my 2006 Mini Cooper Convertible with Boost radio. Being a complete newbie at DIY, I am total lost with what I should do to get this unit installed properly. Does anyone has a detail step by step installation guide for this unit o know where I can find it? I cant seem to find any guide on NewMiniStuff.com or Dension's own website. Please help!

Wiring is the same as the icelink - thats on our DIY website
2006 Mini is easier than shown fr stripping
Pull down drivers knee bolster (clipped at top & hinged at bottom)
Remove the 2 screws from the side or each radio pillar
Push the pillars outwards to reveal radio screws
Remove 4 radio screws
Pull out radio
Unplug
Plug factory plug into gateway loom & gateway loom into radio
Plug small plug on gateway loom into gateway module
Plug ipod lead & usb lead
Unclip blank from back of glovebox & route cables for ipod/usb into there.
Switch key on & away you go :)
Am in the office until 12 noon today if you need help

Thank you very much for your step by step guide. I manage to install the unit by myself without destroying my new car, awesome! Its great product too, now I ve got myself a ipod dock cable, a USB cable and an AUX input all at the same time.

The only thing i was not very sure was the final step. "Unclip blank from back of glove box & route cables...." I cant find anything to unclip at the back of the glove box, and what I did was to route the cable from behind the glove box, and put it back into glove box from front. Was there supposed to be some sort of holes or opening in the glove box that i can put the cable in directly?
