Default Snap In Adaptors - Talk To Me Please - 12th October 2017, 09:16 AM

Right guys and girls, this is a real head melter even for the dealership. Our R56 has enhanced bluetooth (6NE option). I would like to be able to play music from an iphone 5 when docked in armrest. Is this possible and if so for anyone that has achieved this what is the part number?

You should be able to source a iPhone 5 cradle from the MINI Direct store on eBay. Full details, including the part number, below and they have the cradles in stock.

Specifically says at the bottom of that listing
Please note music and media functionality is not supported.

So no further forward

Sorry I didn't read your thread properly, to play music you need a y cable for that.

Yes that appears to be the answer but was hoping there was a solution for the armrest dock

I know this doesnít help but my iPhone 4 plays music via snap in adapter. Iíve been looking for an iPhone 6 adapter but didnít know if it would work as well as Iíve heard the later lightning cable is digital and the old 30 pin is analogue

This has been bugging me, went onto the Apple website and this cradle has been recommended with a different part number. Description mentions music can be played.

Would your local dealer not order them for you to try. If not, Iíd keep going around the area until one will. Iíve often ordered two parts/accessories to see which worked best and they returned the one I didnít want (or they kept it in group)

I do understand your pain. Iíve been trying on and off for 2 years to get video through my R56 media screen (without using a media cable) I.e. Either via usb or via iPhone 4 and cradle. As I donít like the way the media cables sit in the car .
As you can guess I havenít succeeded yet
