MINI Connected Receives Consistent Update
|   Friday, September 11, 2015
MINI Connected allows the integration and control of mobile applications into the car interface and is just going through a comprehensive process of reconstruction with a new version that is available from mid-August.
Refreshing the MINI Connected will simplify the application menu interfaces and will provide MINI drivers a console for displaying a host of information and functions related to driving.

New and updated amenities include:
- MINI Streetwise
- Basic functions Status, Apps and Profiles
- Online Search
- Sports Instruments and Force Meter
- Calendar

MINI Streetwise, the new MINI Connected application usage, allows users to display on their smartphone the best route before starting the journey.
The application uses personal driving data with the user's previous trips and displays information such as journey time and fuel consumption.

The application determines your current location and displays on your smartphone, all destinations recorded so far and the best routes. If there were many roads to the same destination, MINI Streetwise will calculate, as a recommended option, the user's personal best route. When you enter the place of destination the estimated time to arrival, together with alternative routes including data such as distance, journey time and fuel consumption are shown immediately.

Users can choose to have locations shown on the map or as a list. The same information can also be displayed in the central instrument after the smartphone was connected to the MINI. Thus, car drivers have always a clear recommendation about the best way to get from A to B.

Vehicle's location, fuel level, possible range, and last recorded trip can be found on the menu item status. By accessing location a map showing the route to the parked car opens. All installed applications are available and presented under the Apps item, giving users a brief summary of all applications that can be used via MINI Connected.

This includes third-party applications that are available for MINI on the App Store, or have already been installed on smartphones and connected to the car. In addition the menu item Profile is available where users can enter a name for themselves or their MINI model, upload a photo, or can access their personal driving statistics, including total distance, total time driven and average fuel consumption. Finally, users can find all information about applications and tutorials concerning MINI Connected under the Information tab.

Sports Instruments and Force Meter apps can be accessed directly in the central MINI tool to display the performance data. Sports Instruments shows engine data, including engine speed, torque, engine temperature and current engine power. On the other hand, the application Force Meter shows on screen all the forces of acceleration while traveling, all through graphs that indicate the current longitudinal and lateral acceleration in sectors around a virtual MINI in the middle of the monitor.

Online Search can be used to quickly find places and addresses while you're in the car and transferring them to the MINI navigation system for route planning. It is also possible to directly access phone numbers with the Online Search function. MINI Connected also allows the car to connect to the smartphone's calendar.
