APPLE CARPLAY® PREPARATION.
Apple CarPlay® Preparation is the fast and convenient way to wirelessly use your iPhone and your favourite iOS apps safely behind the wheel of your MINI. It is an in-car multimedia hub that takes the things you want to do while driving and puts them in your touchscreen display. So you can get directions, conduct phone calls, receive and send messages, and listen to music – while staying fully focused on the road. It also lets you operate Spotify and selected third party apps. You can control the main functions using your MINI’s Touchscreen controls, the MINI Controller or via Siri voice commands. And you can activate Siri on your iPhone by long-pressing the voice control button on the steering wheel.
Find detailed information on supported apps at http://www.apple.com/ios/carplay/ – and see how it makes your everyday life better, easier and more connected.

REAL-TIME TRAFFIC INFORMATION (RTTI).
Stay one step ahead of the traffic and avoid delays thanks to Real-Time Traffic Information (RTTI) and MINI Connected's navigation system. It alerts you about accidents, traffic jams and roadworks ahead. RTTI helps you find the fastest routes and steer clear of any holdups. It keeps you updated on the traffic situation on all key roads and motorways. It calculates what delays can be expected and suggests detours so you can react in good time.
Select ‘Navigation’ in the main menu, then choose ‘Map’. Traffic conditions are displayed in colours under ‘Map views’. Green indicates no problems. Yellow is for slow traffic. Orange is for stop-and-go. Red signals stationary traffic. A yellow or red warning appears in ‘Traffic information’ the moment there is news available for a specific route. Details of the delay and possible detours are provided when clicking on ‘Traffic information'.
MINI NAVIGATION SYSTEM.
Remote Services enables you to access your MINI and activate some of its functions with your phone from a distance using the MINI App. This means you can locate your vehicle, lock and unlock doors remotely, and also activate the air conditioning and ventilation from a distance, too, to make sure it's exactly as you like it before you head off – and much more. You can do all this and more with the MINI App.
INTELLIGENT EMERGENCY CALL.
MINI TeleServices enables connectivity between MINI and your car itself. So wherever you are, we’ve got you covered. If necessary, it establishes an instant connection with emergency or breakdown services so that help is soon at hand. But that’s not all. This intelligent technology also triggers an alert if, say, your MINI’s battery is low. Or if a service is due, it transmits the essential vehicle data to the relevant MINI Service Partner, who will then contact you to arrange a date to service or repair your MINI. Alternatively, you can use the MINI Connected menu to request assistance manually.
NATURAL LANGUAGE UNDERSTANDING.
8.8'' TOUCHSCREEN DISPLAY.
MINI Connected provides the foundation for a comprehensive range of intelligent services and smartphone apps that you can safely view in your MINI’s Touchscreen. It’s effectively the original MINI connectivity suite but now greatly enhanced with our new packages. MINI Connected acts as your invaluable travel companion, enabling you to access entertainment and organise your day by integrating information from your device – whether inside or outside your MINI. The features are operated easily via your MINI Controller or the multifunction steering wheel. You can also enjoy convenient access to music apps like Spotify.
Please note: availability and functionality may vary between versions and regions.
The MINI Wireless Charging tray, located in the centre armrest, lets you securely store and safely charge any QI-enabled smartphone as you drive – while keeping your cockpit cable-free. As soon as you place your phone in the charging station, your battery automatically gets a top up. Once docked, an LED light will indicate that your phone is connected and charging. The charging tray also enables your phone to obtain the best possible network reception, as it connects your phone via inductive coupling to the external aerial.
The USB connection at the base of the central console is effectively an auxiliary input (and charger) that enables you to directly control and play music players, files on memory sticks and smartphones. Connecting devices to the USB interface is simple and straightforward – depending on the equipment – and can be carried out using your original USB cables or a MINI cable adapter available as an accessory.
Located in the centre console, the MINI Controller allows you to easily navigate through all your MINI Connected features and functions by turning, pressing, and tilting the dial. A small representation of the controller appears in your Touchscreen display so you can easily see where you are within MINI Connected and what you are doing. There are also direct selection buttons for Media, Telecommunication, Main Menu, Radio and Map Menu. An Option key opens a context-sensitive settings page, and pressing Back takes you to the last page selected.
