MINI meet mobile. Mobile meet MINI.

Stay in the loop while you’re out on the road. Connect your mobile to your MINI via Bluetooth® wireless technology to make and receive calls without your hands ever leaving the wheel – simply use the steering wheel buttons or voice control. Access other stuff on your phone too, like your playlists and contacts. Handy, huh?

Do you have MINI Connected?

MINI Connected is the ultimate app-based in-car technology; it’s the sociable sidekick to your driving adventures. It’s paired up differently to the standard features on your mobile so you’ll need to download the apps. Find out more here.
