MINI Connected


Immerse yourself in the revolutionary world of MINI automobile infotainment - with ""MINI Connected"". The unique connectivity of driver, MINI and the online universe enhances the typical MINI driving experience even more.
All you need is a 3rd generation* MINI featuring the ""MINI Connected"" option.

Simply connect up your smartphone to the USB port of your MINI to experience the various functions of the app - with the help of the MINI Controller, the high-resolution display and the audio system of your car.
Information on the compatibility of end devices and further details can be found at www.MINI.com/connectivity.

Features:

Twitter
Displays the latest status messages, personal favourites or community trends in the car. It also allows the sending of predefined text messages that can access vehicle information while driving.

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.

Audio player
This feature ensures that you can also access the music library stored on your smartphone at any time when using the MINI Connected app.

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
Bluetooth:
to read the Bluetooth address to enable trouble-free, USB audio communication with the car.
Prevent standby mode:

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

Completely useless This app has so much more capability on ios. I'm jealous for the first time of Apple users. I really want the Web radio feature! Facebook is OK but not something I need while driving. Please add Web radio!
