MINI has made technology seamless across your vehicle. The MINI Connected technology is a united system that promotes connectivity to make your driving experience easier. From an easy-to-use touchscreen interface, to smartphone support, and a variety of navigation assistants, MINI has the user at the top of mind. MINI Edmonton is happy to outline all that you can get out of the MINI Connect system and how it will improve your vehicle’s user compatibility.
Touchscreen Display Technology
The Touchscreen Display on your MINI comes in a crystal clear 6.5-inch or 8.8-inch display. This is the hub where all of the technology in your MINI meets. Just from the touch of a finger you can start playing music, call friends, adjust the cabin lighting and plan a driving route. The Head-up Display is inspired by fighter jet instrumentation. It projects your driving information including speed, navigation routes, music and alerts into your immediate view. You can easily connect your iPhone through the Apple CarPlay system. This mirrors your iPhone display onto your display panel for simple access to all of your phone calls, texts, directions and music. Control your GoPro directly from the navigation screen, including a video preview and key functions, with straightforward app integration.
Touch Controller & Wireless Charging
Thanks to the Touch Controller in the middle console, the MINI Connected technology is literally at your fingertips. By pushing the buttons or drawing across the touchpad you can command the system through anything from typing in a new travel destination to changing a song. Directly behind the touchpad, underneath the armrest, sits a cable-free charging dock for wireless phone charging in transit. The dock fits the majority of QI-standard smartphones, while compatible phone case adaptors are available if your phone can’t connect.
The Journey Mate feature is available on the MINI Connect XL system to assist you in planning your trip with navigation, weather, gas capacity and appointments. The system will even point out the closest gas stations on your route, or help find parking at your destination. The Real-Time Traffic feature supplies your MINI with up-to-date traffic conditions and will re-route you around any accidents and hassle to get you to your destination without any time lost. A Car Finder feature is a lifesaver when you come out of a store into a busy parking lot and just can’t remember where you parked your car. Your device will set a digital pin on your location and guide you back to your vehicle no matter how crowded the parking lot may be.
