Connect your device. Keep in the loop.

MINI and your mobile in harmony.

Stay in the loop while you’re out on the road. Connect your mobile to your MINI via Bluetooth to make and receive calls without taking your hands off the wheel – simply use the steering wheel buttons or voice control. You can also access other stuff on your phone, like your playlists and contacts. Handy, huh?
