Geneva Preview: MINI Connected to make its debut in the Countryman

Article by Christian A., on March 26, 2010

MINI announced today that, in March at the Geneva Motor Show, it will launch the all-new, world-first in-car entertainment solution: MINI Connected. This new system offers new options in order to enhance the hallmark driving fun associated with the brand and will make its official debut in the brand new Countryman.

The Mini Connected will also bring a newly developed USB interface whose unique functionality allows maximum integration of the iPhone into the in-car audio and infotainment system.

The new system will provide the basis for new and unprecedented integration of smartphone functions. The manufacturer says that all the functions integrated in the Mini, courtesy of the Apple iPhone are activated and controlled using the vehicle's own operating system.

When the system is fitted in conjunction with the likewise new MINI Visual Boost radio, the full range of MINI Connected functions can be used.

The web radio function will also be showcased in Geneva as an example of what the system can do. In a "hooked up" MINI-linked to the outside world via MINI Connected - the driver will be able to have his choice of radio station streamed to him anywhere in the world, provided the station is available in the extensive station database.

The system will also incorporate the Mission Control module, which made its debut in the MINI 50 Camden anniversary model.

This module can evaluate a vast range of vehicle, driving situation and vehicle environment-related signals and supplies the driver with relevant information and instructions in customary MINI style. The Mission control gives the driver a stronger sense of interacting directly with the vehicle.
