Mini adds 4G Connected service to entire range

Mini Connected

All new Mini models will feature built-in 4G connectivity from March 2018.

The refreshed Mini Connected service will allow drivers to access a new Mini Concierge service and interact with the car remotely via smartphone.

Existing features in the Mini Connected portfolio, such as Intelligent Emergency Call and Teleservices, will be joined by Real Time Traffic Information with navigation map updates and MINI Online.

The Concierge can be contacted by the push of a button around the clock to source information and address data for the driver, research connections and offer practical tips during the journey.

Smartphone feature include: Time-to-Leave Notifications (push messages), Send to Car (for importing destinations from a smartphone to the car), Remote Services (e.g. for locking the car’s doors from a smartphone) and – in electrified Mini models – a charging timer, charging station search facility and personal efficiency status display.

The spread of digital connectivity options offered by Mini is rounded off by Apple CarPlay, which is offered as standard with Countryman and Clubman models and optionally available as part of the Mini Navigation Plus package for Mini Hatch and Convertible.
