Hi,

A new Up! owner here (2014 High Up Bluemotion) and I'm thrilled with it. One thing that has proven to be a bit of a problem is the Sat Nav included - it's a bit out of date and I'm having trouble updating the maps (tried Garmin Fresh but it looks to have gone out of support?)

So... I would like to replace the sat nav cradle with a phone cradle (to hold my iPhone for Google Maps) and have the following questions:
  • Would it be possible to buy the new 2017 Up phone cradle separately and it would be backward compatible with the 2014 Up?
  • If not, what phone cradles are a good alternative? Ideally, would any fit into/over the existing port on top of the dashboard?
  • Otherwise, is there an easy way to stick with the included sat nav and update the maps manually?
Really appreciate any help Smile

Thanks,

Alistair
