ENTERTAINMENT & INFOTAINMENT.
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.

MINI NAVIGATION SYSTEM.
The MINI Navigation System gives you route navigation that leads you to your destination through a combination of voice commands, map displays and arrow indicators on a high-quality, high-resolution easy-to-use Touchscreen display. It lets you pinch and zoom the app to give you a clear, detailed view of your route. The system also offers you night mode, Real-Time Traffic Information (optional) and a Points of Interest search function to guide you quickly and safely to your destination. The system is operated via the MINI Controller with map updates available via over-the air or USB. All in all, it turns your MINI Visual Boost radio into an expert guide.
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'.
INTELLIGENT EMERGENCY CALL.
Trying to remember service appointments now is a thing of the past. Thanks to Teleservices, your MINI automatically knows when routine or unscheduled maintenance is required, and it provides you and your preferred MINI Service Partner with all the relevant information.
NATURAL LANGUAGE UNDERSTANDING.
The front armrest (with storage compartment) is as practical as it is comfortable. Ergonomically designed, it provides easy access to the MINI Controller. The armrest folds down and can be fixed in several positions. Furthermore, it houses the optional available sturdy wireless docking system which, equipped with a telephone-specific adapter, perfectly integrates QI-enabled smartphones into your vehicle, for secure storage and fast, optimised charging.
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.
BLUETOOTH HANDS-FREE INTERFACE.
BLUETOOTH AUDIO STREAMING.
Bluetooth audio streaming allows the Bluetooth hands-free interface to wirelessly transmit music data to your MINI’s audio system. This is possible with the Radio MINI Visual Boost and all MINI Connected package options. Depending on the equipment installed, the mobile phone can be operated by the MINI Controller, the multifunctional steering wheel or by voice control.
