R56 navigation

It’s not totally unexpected it’s still rather alarming. The CD and DVD based navigation systems found in MINIs from 2002 to 2010 can no longer updated after 2015. This is due to the mapping company that provides the data no longer supporting physical media. What about 2011 MINI and onward? Those systems are all solid state systems that will likely be supported for much longer due to software being much easier to update without the process of producing physical media to go along it it. continued →

For so many years MotoringFile has focused on whats new and recently released. However with the price of 2002 MINIs now well below $10k there are great used MINI deals to be had. So great that I’ve recently found myself magnetically drawn to eBay looking for a MINI project car.
