Requirements and tips

User registration is required before activating the app for use.
Several functions are only available when the end device is connected to a MINI 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.

This app requires, amongst other things, the following Android permissions:
Read calendar:
to display the calendar in the car.
Read contacts:
to call subscribers registered in the calendar.
Write to memory:
to store data, e.g. Facebook user photos.
Bluetooth:
to read the Bluetooth address to enable trouble-free, USB audio communication with the car.
Prevent standby mode:
for trouble-free USB communication.

Further details can be found in the privacy policy statement for the app.

What? Why? How is the Nexus 5 not supported? I have been waiting over a year to use this feature of my new car and now I find that I still can't? Why?

Couldn't Be Worse Even if it worked. Which it doesn't.

Doesn't connect - don't bother, but check back once in a while Neither an update Samsung S-III or Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will connect to my 2013 Paceman. No diagnostics to indicate what the problem might be. Mini's website is no help, with lots of Mini Connect information dating back to 2010, seemingly never having been updated. If Mini had half an ounce (14.2 grams) of sense, they'd open-source this application and let us fix and improve it for them. But, despite their cars being generally amazing and awesome, they've really fallen down on the job when it comes to maintaining compatibility with the largest population of device users.

Looks like it would be cool I just got my 2014 Countryman and I was hoping to be able to use this app on my brand new car, but sadly it seems they have not added any functionality to this app that will work with my new car. Hope that one day that will change since I don't plan on going back to an iPhone any time soon.
