Take a closer look at how MINI Connected gets you closer to your MINI – and the world around you.
HEY. HERE COMES ALEXA.
Just press the speech button on the steering wheel and add even more convenience to your MINI driving experience. It's also an exciting glimpse into the future. You might know her from home, but now Alexa could soon be joining you on your journeys. You can get her to check your MINI's battery charge and fuel level and unlock or lock your doors remotely. You can also get her to control some functions in your smart home with your voice – like turning up the temperature before you get home. She can even order some dinner for you so that it will arrive just after you do.
Remote Services saves you the inconvenience of a long search for your MINI as you can control it from a distance, making finding your vehicle a whole lot easier. Its location can be indicated by sounding the horn or flashing the lights – or via a map on your smartphone. But you can do a lot more than that. It lets you control various functions on your MINI from a distance as you have all the information conveniently in one place in the MINI Connected app. For example, you can access the status of the windows and doors, unlock and lock your door – or you can operate the air ventilation well before you get inside.
MINI CONNECTED SERVICE.
Connect with everything that's important to you. Enjoy a whole host of intelligent services and vehicle apps that provide you with information and entertainment throughout your journey. When you want to fill your tank up, MINI vehicle apps not only find petrol stations on your route, but let you compare fuel prices to help you keep costs down. You'll also get up-to-date weather forecasts – and as you approach your destination, they'll show you where parking is available and direct you via the navigation system to your preferred car park.
MINI and Spotify give you access to all the music you’ll ever need, via your MINI sound system. Just connect the free Spotify iPhone® app to your MINI Connected system, and enjoy 30 million songs as well as Spotify radio. You can make your own playlists, too, so that you now have the perfect music for any journey. Control your Spotify music completely through MINI Connected and avoid the distraction of your phone.
YOUR DESTINATION GUIDE.
Your smartphone and your MINI become one with the MINI Connected app. Imagine you’re heading off somewhere but you’ve got to buy a couple of things en route. Destinations and places that you have found on the web or using apps such as Apple Maps and Google Maps can be seamlessly and conveniently transferred to your MINI with the send-to-car facility. Just one click and you can conveniently import a selected destination – like a shop – in your MINI Connected navigation system. Once you've parked, you can use your smartphone to seamlessly guide you to your final destination on foot.
A NATURAL LANGUAGE UNDERSTANDING.
Speak to your MINI in your natural speaking voice. Natural Language Understanding has a processing speed of just a few seconds and can recognise your normal voice. So you can interact with your MINI with your voice – and interrupt it if you wish. You can even ask it to do things like: "show me the fastest way home." It’s the perfect way to control many of your phone’s functions so you can keep your hands on the wheel – and your eyes safely on the road.
YOUR MOBILE ASSISTANT.
Driving is always most enjoyable when you have a personal travel planning app looking over your schedule, making sure you always arrive on time. Well it's now here – and here's how. MINI Connected gets to know your driving patterns. You synchronise it with your calendar, so all your appointments are integrated and your MINI can give you directions before you set off. It also sends your phone or Apple Watch reminders when you have to leave to arrive on time – taking real-time traffic data into account. Later down the road, it can hunt parking spaces for you and inform people when you will be arriving. All the remote functions can be easily activated from the MINI Connected app. What could be better?
REAL-TIME TRAFFIC INFORMATION.
Avoid delays with Real-Time Traffic Information (RTTI) thanks to MINI Connected and its navigation system. It alerts you about any accidents, traffic jams and roadworks ahead.
MINI FindMate is your useful Bluetooth tracking tag you attach to personal items you don‘t want to leave behind – like your briefcase. Just download the latest version of the MINI Connected app to your phone and create an account. Pair your phone via Bluetooth® with the tag and you're set. As you move further away from the tag, the connection breaks and you will receive a notification on your smartphone. Even better, you can check where the item is by using the map in your app as it will always show its last recorded GPS location. Once you're nearby, the tag will emit an acoustic signal to help you pinpoint its position.
Life is full of surprises. So whether you're looking for a late night sushi restaurant, you need flight information, or you wish to book a hotel room, our telephone concierge service team is on hand 24 hours a day to attend to your every need. At the mere press of a button on your navigation system, your car immediately calls one of your “personal assistants” letting you speak to them while driving. They provide insight, connections and practical advice to make every journey easier – wherever you are – and can transmit address details directly back to you.
