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.

Travel.

MINI Connected - traffic information MINI Connected - traffic information

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'.

ASSISTANCE.

MINI Connected - intelligent emergency call MINI Connected - intelligent emergency call

INTELLIGENT EMERGENCY CALL.

If you are not able to directly call for help in an accident, it’s good to know that MINI can. With the optional, intelligent Emergency Call system, your MINI automatically sends a distress call to the locally available mobile services. A SIM card and integrated telematics unit transmit relevant data such as the exact GPS coordinates of your MINI, chassis number (VIN), type of collision (e.g. whereabouts of impact), status of airbags and seatbelts, number of passengers and direction of travel. Specially trained personnel will then establish contact with you, inform the appropriate emergency services so that help can reach the scene as fast as possible. They will give you support by telephone – in your own language wherever possible. This function can also be activated manually.
