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'.

mini connected - intelligent emergency call mini connected - 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 possible. They will give you support by telephone – in your own language wherever possible. This function can also be activated manually.
mini connected - automatic legal emergency call mini connected - automatic legal emergency call


All new MINI models in the EU now also integrate eCall – the mandatory automated emergency call system that alerts emergency services in the event of a collision. eCall automatically dials Europe's single emergency number – 112 – in the event of a serious road accident, and communicates the vehicle's location to the emergency services and further rescue-relevant data. Customers are dealt with in their national language, regardless of where the emergency call is triggered. We should add that this service is not a black box and does not constantly record the position of your MINI. It is there for added protection and records just the minimum data at the time of an incident – such as chassis number (VIN), exact location (via GPS) and additional data like type of collision. eCall cannot be used to monitor motorist's moves.

Trying to remember service appointments now is a thing of the past. Thanks to Teleservices, your MINI automatically knows when routine or unscheduled maintenance is required, and it provides you and your preferred MINI Service Partner with all the relevant information.
