Our Fleet Test Drive: Mini Countryman - 6th Report
29 September 2011

I like my satnavs like my breakfasts: 'Full English'. The ability to submit a seven-digit postcode should be a given in 2011 (aftermarket systems have had them since the late '90s) but many cars currently on the market still suffer from their Euro-influenced roots where five digits is deemed enough. So 'praise be' the Mini Countryman - as a 'Full English' (sort of) brand - being able to deal with UK postcodes properly. Now all it needs to do is rectify the annoying and non-intuitive scrolling anti-clockwise to enlarge the map screen. As I've said before, surely clockwise for bigger is more logical?
