Plunge into the revolutionary realm of in-car infotainment. The "MINI Connected" option embodies a unique symbiosis of driver, MINI and the online world.
Simply connect your iPhone to the USB port of your MINI and the MINI Controller, the high-definition display and the vehicle's sound system let you experience the various functions of this app.
To find out about compatibility with iPhones and any other information, check out www.MINI.com/connectivity.
Driving Excitement: The Driving Excitement Analyser assesses just how well you have your MINI under control. Score Experience Points (XP) for accelerating, braking, changing gear and steering. Increase your skills step-by-step in every category. Additional features such as Condition Check, Force Meter and Sport Instruments reveal even more unique opportunities for even more fun when driving your MINI.
MINIMALISM: This feature determines your personal high score with the MINIMALISM Analyser while you drive. The All Star Timer is automatically activated as soon as you have earned five stars in each of the MINIMALISM categories. The MINIMALISM Analyser analyses driving style to assess how efficiently the driver accelerates, brakes and changes gear and awards or subtracts MINIMALISM points for each positive or negative assessment.
Dynamic Music: Your MINI plays the music you like. You can choose from several tracks composed exclusively for MINI that adapt in real-time to your driving style.
Mission Control: Your MINI can tell you the temperature outside, politely remind to fasten your seat belt or provide other interesting information - all depending on the situation.
Web radio: Use your iPhone to receive countless online radio stations in your MINI. There are search functions for selecting genres, countries or your favourite stations.
Online search: A search function that helps you to find anything you are looking for - from pizzas to cinemas - and enters the results directly in the optional MINI Navigation System.
Facebook & Twitter: Displays the latest status messages, personal favourites or community trends in the car. It also allows the sending of predefined messages that can access vehicle information while driving.
foursquare: with foursquare, you can stay in contact with your friends, collect points and badges and share your adventures. Let the foursquare community give you tips about new places waiting to be discovered.
Calendar: Displays calendar entries in the car and lets you phone the subscriber, if required. It also lets you listen to vocalised details of appointments over the car audio system. Addresses stored in the calendar can also be transferred directly to the optional navigation system as destinations.
News: With this feature, you have constant and immediate access to the latest news from your RSS News Feeds subscription.
Requirements and tips: User registration is required before activating the app for use. WIFI link recommended for loading additional content. Several functions are only available when the end device is connected to a MINI model with the "MINI Connected" option. The range of features and functions may differ from version to version and country to country. As selected functions are dependent on connections to third party providers, it is possible that they may not be available at all times and in the same form. A broadband connection is required. Any extra costs resulting from this (e.g. roaming charges) are a part of the customer's contract with the network provider. Please also take care to observe country-specific preconditions and requirements. Limited functionality may be experienced as a result of insufficient bandwidth or volume-based bandwidth limitation (bandwidth capping) on the part of the network provider. As a result of this, MINI can provide no guarantee for the unlimited compatibility and functionality of your mobile device when connected with the vehicle interface.
What's New in Version 2.7.1
With the latest update, some bugs of the previous version have been fixed.
Suggestions 2014 Countryman
Please bring back The Send to Car feature. And eliminate some if the bloat ware on this app. FourSquare is useless. The Dynamic Music gets old quick. Web radio is pointless compared to standalone apps such as Pandora or iTunes Radio or even Beats. The rest of the stuff can stay. But what's really great is the Online Search. I find using this a lot and it's easier finding a point of interest here than cycling through the Navigation categories.
What would be a great addition is if there was Yelp integration. That would be trick!
Please update and fix bugs!
I have 2014 hardtop Cooper S. I love the features on the app but it's so unstable it makes it impossible to enjoy. I have an iPhone 5 connected via the USB and the app frequently disconnects for no reason. Aside from this annoying problem, my phone has twice gone into thermal shutdown because the app is always on, it never dims the screen, and nearly cooked my phone. If I don't run MINI connected, the phone works fine and never heats up. Until this app is corrected I can't give it anymore stars
Miss Send To Car
Online Search is not an adequate substitute for Send To Car. Can you at least tell us if you will ever bring it back? Or let me downgrade to the last "good" version. Also playing music is no longer stable. It seems to forget about the playlist being used. If you are going to take away functionality, could you at least put something useful back in it? Maybe have it automatically load the Driving Excitement to the temperature gauge by default?
