Two Phone Mount Choices in the Box

The Gemini Smart phone mount is both a magnetic mount, and a clip mount. You choose which you like best, and you can switch at any time. Either will work for any smartphone no matter how large or small.

Designed just for your Mini

All you need to do is select your MINI's generation, and you will receive a pre-assembled mount that attaches directly to the existing screw holes on the back of your tachometer. If you aren't sure which generation your MINI is from, check out our MINI model guide. The Gemini fits all MINI models. On some cars, particularly the F60 Countryman, the bracket will limit the top end of the steering column adjustment range slightly.

Magnets Work Surprisingly Well

We've long been skeptical of magnetic phone mounts, but it turns out they are pretty awesome. Many of the phones we tested were sufficiently magnetic on their own to just attach right to the mount. If not, we include two sizes of metal plates with adhesive backing. You could stick one to your phone or your case. It could also go between the case and the phone. While this magnetic mount is quick and easy to use, if you do not want to deal with the plates and your phone does not attach without them, the XXL Clip is in the box for you too. We do not recommend using either metal plate with QI equipped phones.

Tight Corners and Large Phones are not Problem

The strong spring of the inclued clamshell holder can be more secure than the magnet mount if you are really putting it through it's paces. This is ideal for larger/heavier devices or bumpy driving conditions. The spring clip design means it’s still easy to use, simply pinch the back to open the holder. It opens up to 4 inches wide, so as long as your device is narrower than that, it will fit just fine. When removing your phone from the holder you should avoid letting the strong spring snap shut. Over time, this can cause the holder to break. If your holder breaks we will replace it, but this can be easily avoided.

Fit

The first gen mount fits the R50, R52, and R53. The second gen version fits the R55 Clubman, R56 Cooper, R57 Convertible, R58 Coupe, R59 Roadster, R60 Countryman, and the R61 Paceman. The third gen fits the F55 and F56 Cooper, as well as the F54 Clubman and F57 Convertible. It also fits the F60 Countryman but will slighlty limit the uper end of the adjustment range of the steering column.

    Solid build quality 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Jul 2018

    Works great and is so sturdy. Much better than other 3rd party holders. Works well on my Essential Android phone, which is quite heavy. Ie, the grip is solid. Highly recommend.

    Great mount that exactly matches MINI aesthetic 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Jun 2018

    It's been two months since I installed the Gemini in my 2018 Countryman and I couldn't be happier. It's an elegant, low profile mount without my phone; it perfectly positions my (landscape-oriented) phone without blocking the windshield or air vent. It looks totally at home with the rest of the MINI cockpit.

    I am using the Gemini's magnetic mount with a Samsung S8+. Other reviews state the magnetic strength is low and thus there's slippage with larger-sized phones but I blame that on the thin magnetic inserts shipped with the Gemini that are intended for placement either within the phone's battery compartment or between the phone and its protective case. My phone is protected by a Vena wallet case (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B06Y1HKTKM) which has it's own magnetic enclosure. This puppy sticks to the Gemini magnetic mount like glue. So my advice is that find a thicker magnetic insert for larger sized phones.

    Few other points:
    1. Installation is not difficult (I'm no mechanic and it took all of five minutes) but you WILL drop the the two Torx screws when removing them as they're quite recessed and oriented along a downward facing slope. Luckily, MINI was kind enough to wrap the gauge cluster in some fabric, catching the falling screws. My advice is to purchase a Torx screwdriver with a magetic head in the hopes of hanging on to them. Note that my Torx screwdriver had a magnetic head and the screws still dropped but maybe you'll have better luck.
    2. It's true that in the 3rd Gen MINI, installation of the Gemini causes you to lose the last bit of upward tilt available to the gauge cluster. That said, I'm 6'2" and have no problem seeing the top of the gauge once the driver's seat height is adjusted low enough to prevent my hair from touching the roof.
    3. I'm good with my phone position in a landscape orientation but if you prefer a portrait orientation, you'll likely have a bit of the windshield blocked by the phone. I suppose the shorter you are, the more the windshield will be blocked. Worst case though, I doubt you lose much to the overlap.
    4. Considering how often you'll use this mount and how pleased you'll be with it, the price is reasonable.

    This was my first CravenSpeed purchase. If the Gemini is representative of product quality across CravenSpeed's portfolio, these guys deserve an award

    Good Customer Service 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th May 2018

    I purchased a phone mount for my Mini Cooper almost 3 years ago. Over time, it seems that sun through the windshield caused the plastic clip to become brittle, and it actually failed while the phone was in it one day causing the phone to lean to one side but not fall completely out.

    Happily, Cravenspeed replaced the clip at no charge, which was great. I am now enjoying the phone mount again, but I did notice one issue that I don't remember having previously. Sometimes when I pinch the clip to open it wide enough for my phone, it shears a bit and the center pin drops out causing the clip to fall apart. It can be reassembled, but it is sometimes annoying since it takes some time to locate all the pieces and put it back together. I do not remember my old clip having this problem. I do not know whether this is due to a new design that is more sensitive or something wrong with the specific clip that I received.

    Using a Samsung S9+ in (thin) Flip Case it Craven's Gemini Mount is the best I have found (and I tried 6 different options.

    Only improvement I would like to see is a Larger and better quality Jaws Mount.

    Needs a stronger magnet or better clamp! 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 7th May 2018

    Love how the product looks in my Mini; however, the first two clips broke after a couple uses. CravenSpeed’s awesome customer service sent me another clip to try and before installing it, I used superglue on the ends where the little metal bar goes thru. That seems to help hold the thing together. The clip is very awkward to use though once it’s installed on the mount and I decided to try the magnet instead. As other uses stated, it is not strong enough to hold my iPhone 8plus. The magnet I had originally purchased on Amazon is stronger so I peeled off the backing and stuck it to the magnet that came with CravenSpeed’s. So now I basically have a double magnet but it seems to be strong enough to hold my iPhone. As someone else stated, I wish CravenSpeed would give us a stronger magnet. Also, a different clip as this clip is very awkward to use. One more thing, regarding the arm that holds the clip, as another person also stated, make sure to tighten the bolt in the position you need it Tom hold your phone or it will keep slipping down once your phone is attached. This is not easy to do, and I dropped the socket inside the back of my odometer and had to remove the odometer to find the socket!!! A small tool included to do this would be an awesome addition to this product. Keep working on it CravenSpeed - the idea is great but this still needs some tweaks. If you come up with a better clamp for the larger, heavier iPhones, please send me a new one! Keep up the awesome customer service though - I probably would have given up if not for the good service!

    Good phone mount 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th May 2018

    Works well, easy to install - took 10 minutes. Because the laod from the phone is cantilevered when sitting in the mount, you have to make sure that the nut/bolt is snug and the joint - otherwise the phone can droop down.

    A love hate relationship 2 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Mar 2018

    Looks: 5 stars
    Function with magnet: Zero stars
    Function with clamp: 3 stars

    I've tried several phone holders in my F56. The worst are ones that mount with suction cups on the dash. They leave big hickeys that take weeks to disappear. The only one that worked and didn't hurt anything stuck to the front windshield and had a long arm that extended back to the proper location for the phone. It functioned well but made a cool car look decidedly uncool.

    So I could barely contain myself when I saw the Gemini Phone Mount. Très cool. It installed easily and looks OEM. What could go wrong?

    First, the magnet can't hold my iPhone 8+ over the slightest bump. This is a hard-sprung sports car, after all. I always mount my phone in portrait mode, so the only way to compensate is to have the magnet attach near the top of the phone so the phone at least doesn't twist (before it falls off). But mounting it like that, the steering wheel blocks the screen no matter how I position the mounting arm. Fail.

    So the only workable alternative is the PITA, two-handed clamp. I've found a passable position that only blocks the bottom left corner of the screen. If I mount it higher, the top of the phone blocks some of my view out the windshield. If only the arm were just about an inch longer. Who engineered this? For the price we're paying, you'd think they could throw in another inch of steel...and a stronger magnet.

    I'm living with it so far, but only because it looks so good and hasn't driven me absolutely nuts yet. Come on, CravenSpeed. Release Version 2. I'll gladly beta test it for you. I really really want to love this thing.

    MUST HAVE MOD! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Mar 2018

    I do not normally write reviews on products I purchase, but this is one instance where I felt I should. And the reason I'm doing so, is because I honestly feel it's been one of THE BEST purchases I've made for my car. I do not have the factory navigation, so I use WAZE on my phone. I also listen to a lot of streaming music through my phone when in my car. Not only does this mount make it easy to scroll through songs, view my navigation, but it holds the phone so well. My car is lowered, and bumps are sometimes a beating, but this mount holds the phone VERY well. I never worry about it falling (I use the magnet portion).

    Another aspect of this mount that I absolutely like, is that it looks very OEM; as if the car came this way from the factory. Lots of people who have seen my car think its a factory option. It's such a clean design. If you're on the fence about purchasing this, jump off right now and do it. Its money well spent.

    Oh, and one last thing. SIMPLE, SIMPLE, SIMPLE installation. Honestly couldn't have been any easier. Took me no more than 5 minutes to install.

    Would give it 10 stars if I could.

    only mount I'll need 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Feb 2018

    The clip is by far more sturdy than the magnetic plate. Have a note 8, magnets couldn't keep it from bouncing off. May be a tad on the more pricey side...but is well worth the money. Fit perfectly and was simple to mount.

    Expensive but worth it! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 7th Feb 2018

    I was super excited to try this, first one I received didn't work with my mini. They sent me another one- that also didn't work with my mini. The third times a charm, I guess? It holds my phones VERY well. I have an Iphone 8+.

    The only MINI Smartphone holder 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Jan 2018

    I know it seems a little pricey but the Gemini phone mount is the ONLY smartphone mount for the MINI Cooper. Nothing else puts the phone in exactly the right place so it is visible and accessible yet not in the way of the controls. Wish I had the foresight to install this years ago.

    Did not work for me 2 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Dec 2017

    The arm is too short and can't see the entire screen. They have longer arm option; though, extra cost for an already expensive product. On the other hand, I did start to get noise from the plastic (where you attach the gemini) and the magnet is not the best neither (I use an iPhone 7 plus). I am giving it two stars for the design, but can be better. I already started looking for other options.

    Gemini Phone Mount is great 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Nov 2017

    My recent purchase of the Gemini Phone Mount works very well in my 2013 Clubman. It places the phone in a good location that is relatively easy to see and it is close to the USB port in the console. It makes compliance with the Washington "hands free" law very easy. The magnetic attachment work well also for my HTC 10. I have to confess that the clamp attachment just isn't for me; too big and cumbersome. My only other complaint is that the extension arm could be an inch or so longer which would make the phone a little easier to access. Great Product, well designed and constructed.

    Great accessory 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Nov 2017

    Love the stability and hands free approach that Cravenspeed designed. We actually kept an extension from the base attachment from our prior mount for a smaller iPhone, which provided me more room to maneuver my phone while docked in the mount.

    The mount itself is great , but the Magnetic holder is not strong enough to hold the phone , the last one I had was great. I have the same phone as I did (iphone7 plus) maybe the magnet is different

    Great product and great employees. I am very very satisfied with cravenspeed. I bought a Gemini Phone mount for a gen 1 Mini Cooper for a customers car and it fit like a glove and was very easy to install. I followed up with my customer and she is loving it. I installed it for her to mount her Garmin Nuvi to.

    The Perfect MINI Mount and Customer Service is the Best! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd Jul 2017

    After reading the reviews, I was a little hesitant in purchasing the mount because of the price. I overlooked the price though and now really glad I made this purchase. I use the clamp and it holds my iPhone 6s Plus perfectly in the vertical (portrait) position and very stable while driving. I also have a case on my iPhone and the clamp still holds securely. The installation was very straight forward and easy and took about 20 minutes (I went slow just to be careful). The mount feels solid and well made and I'm sure will last a long time. It also looks like a factory option from MINI, which is cool.

    Also, just want to make a big compliment to CravenSpeed customer service. About a month after ordering the mount, my clamp lost its tension and wouldn't securely close and hold my iPhone. I emailed CravenSpeed on a Friday morning. I received an email from Robert shortly after and he promptly shipped out a replacement clamp the same day in the afternoon for no charge and to top if off, I received the replacement clamp the following Monday. Robert and CravenSpeed rock!! They definitely care about their customers and stand by their products.

    Good Mount, but has 1 issue 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Jun 2017

    It is a good mount but there is one issue that a few design changes would fix, Temperature variations, I have found that the mount when cool tends to let the arm loosen up, while when hot the clamp swivel loosens up.

    to fix the arm, I would use a wing nut so it can be tightened by hand if need be / and / or / add in a wire (similar to that used by a coat hanger) fastened by clamps to the bars on either side of the arm bolt to act as a reinforcing spring, but that can be adjusted by the owner.

    Solid mount, perfect for Mini! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th May 2017

    LOVE the Craven cell phone mount for my Mini! It looks like a custom that came with the car. No issues with installation/mounting (just make sure to get the type proper screwdriver that you can find in an auto supply store). It's very sturdy and well made (no el cheapo materials). I love how it doesn't interfere on the dashboard or block front visibility, but keeps the phone at the right level where I can see it and the road at the same time. As a bonus, CravenSpeed Customer Support (Kellen) was awesome in making sure that I had the right mount for the right Mini model and also my cell phone size! I'm now checking out the CS website for more goodies for my Mini Cooper S!

    Posted by on 18th May 2017

    This Gemini mount is incredible! I was stunned to realize that I did not even need either of the mounts that come with the armature. The ball joint on the mount fit into the socket that came with my Garmin GPS! While both the large clip and the magnet mounts provided with the Gemini are high quality but the ability to use what I already had makes the installation look more custom.

    A great GREAT product... well worth the cost.

    Easy install and does exactly what it should. Wish the arm was about 1/4" longer to get the phone completely out from behind the steering wheel but I can live with it. Very sturdy and well made. The real bonus is no modifications to the car are required. Craftsmanship is immediately obvious.

    Best Phone Mount Out There 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Mar 2017

    This is the best car phone mount out there. I have tried ones that stick to the dash (they stick for a while, but are not very compatible with pebbled dash finishes), ones that fit in a cup holder (too much vibration) and finally landed on CravenSpeed. While I was hesitant to spend nearly $100 on a mount and also hesitant to take part of my dash apart, it was so worth it and the install was not difficult. This mount looks like it came with my 2017 Clubman. Couldn't be more pleased. Thanks also to CravenSpeed for the quick shipping!

    Great product 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Feb 2017

    I have been eyeing this mount for quite some time now. I've just been very hesitant to spend that much on a phone mount but I decided to just do it. Installation was easy with the right tools. The mount itself works great. I am very happy with it. I love that it displays my phone right above my steering wheel where it is very easy to see and close enough to reach. I was only planning to use the clamp but I really enjoy the magnet portion. Easy to put on and take off with one hand and it holds great. Also both fit my IPhone 7 Plus great even with a pretty hefty case on. Overall I definitely recommend this product. It also saved you about 60 bucks buying the original Mini phone mount.

    Posted by on 14th Feb 2017

    I figured out how to install the phone. Follow the directions and you are in like Flynn! My only problem is that the phone is a little too far left. If I want to enter information, I have to move the phone around. The magnets work and I am looking forward to using this installation to help me find my way in new neighborhoods.
