REAL-TIME TRAFFIC INFORMATION.
Avoid delays with Real-Time Traffic Information (RTTI).
It alerts you about accidents, traffic jams and roadworks ahead. The information is updated at three-minute intervals.
Driving is always most enjoyable when you have a personal travel planning app looking over your schedule, making sure you always arrive on time.
MINI Connected gets to know your driving patterns.
You synchronise it with your calendar, so all your appointments are integrated and the car 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.
All the remote functions can be easily activated from the MINI Connected app.
Remote Services save you the inconvenience of a long search for the car as you can control it from a distance, making finding the car a whole lot easier.
Its location can be indicated by sounding the horn or flashing the lights – or via a map on your smartphone.
It also lets you control various functions on the car 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 the door – or you can operate the air ventilation well before you get inside.
YOUR DESTINATION GUIDE.
Your smartphone and car 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 the car with the send-to-car facility.
Just one click and you can conveniently import a selected destination – like a shop – in the MINI Connected navigation system.
TELESERVICES AND INTELLIGENT EMERGENCY CALL.
As soon as a service is needed, the car’s service related data will be transmitted to your preferred Authorised MINI Service Centre via Automatic Teleservice Call.
Your Authorised MINI Service Centre will retrieve this data, analyse it and contact you to arrange a service or maintenance appointment.
INTELLIGENT EMERGENCY SERVICE.
With the intelligent Emergency Call system, the car automatically sends a distress call to the BMW Group Call Centre with key data from your car, including your exact location, type of collision, status of the airbags and front seat belts, so help can swiftly arrive.
