G armin , a manufacturer in satellite navigation, announced that its automotive OEM division is further developing its two-year relationship with MINI, by offering a new generation of GPS navigation devices for the acclaimed MINI range. The new original MINI accessory mount fits the interior of all left and right hand drive MINI’s manufactured after 2006. All wiring is hidden within the mount, providing a neat, integrated appearance. Once Garmin’s Nuvi 255 GPS system is attached to the custom mount, the Garmin Nuvi will look like part of the original dash.

Like all new products for cars, the mount has been thoroughly tested and meets all crash test requirements. It will be available from MINI approved dealers. "This is one of the most inventive installations of our devices yet, not only due to the swivel mount capability, but also because of the forward compatibility with new Garmin models," said Roger Jollis, Garmin's director of OEM and mobile marketing. "Individuality and choice is important for MINI customers and we hope this solution will meet those needs."

The new installation kit has been designed to fit with the car's dashboard, and thanks to an elegant design, the driver is able to alter the viewing position by rotating the mount around the tachometer. As you would expect from Garmin, the unit can be extracted from the mount and used in pedestrian mode outside of the vehicle. Furthermore, the mount may be used with other Garmin portable navigation devices, enabling MINI customers to keep pace with the latest advances from Garmin.

MINI customers are known for their loyalty and love for the MINI brand so Garmin has also developed a unique SD card that fits into the side of the Garmin Nuvi 255. The data card contains specially designed MINI content including an official start-up MINI splash screen, a range of MINI vehicle icons, MINI wallpapers and an exhaustive list of MINI dealer networks (Europe dealers only), which will enable MINI drivers to access contact details for dealerships and navigate to them at the touch of a button.
