Get closer than ever to your MINI with the all-new MINI Connected. Optimized for 2013 and newer vehicles, the app learns your preferences over time and lets you:
• STAY IN CONTROL: Lock or unlock your MINI and activate the climate control, anytime and anywhere (for owners of a MINI produced in March 2018 or later with a Connected Media, Connected Navigation, or Connected Navigation Plus option package)
• PLAN AHEAD: Find destinations and connect to your MINI for easy navigation
• FIND YOUR CAR: Never forget where you parked your MINI
• BE RELAXED & ON TIME: Schedule trips and get alerted when to leave based on traffic
• STAY ON TRACK: Get walking directions from your parking spot to your final destination
• DO MORE: Locate your belongings with Find Mate and import destinations from your calendar or other apps
MINI Connected is optimized for 2013 and newer model year vehicles. While the app will function as expected on many older models, the availability of certain features may vary.
A mobile Internet connection is required. This can incur costs (for example due to roaming) in accordance with the contract concluded between the customer and the network operator.
Please observe national requirements and conditions specific to the country you are in. For the aforementioned reasons, BMW Group is unable to warranty unrestricted compatibility and functionality of your mobile device in combination with the vehicle interface. The application is displayed in the car in the language configured for the vehicle.
Continued use of GPS running in the background can decrease battery life. If you experience significant battery drain while using MINI Connected, select the lower battery usage option in the Settings menu.
This version includes minor bug fixes.

Sharing feature no longer working
This app worked fine for me for a number of years but recently the feature I used the most often disappeared. I used to be able to find a location in Apple Maps and press the share button and select mini connected and share my location with this app (and when connecting to my mini with USB that would trigger navigation to that location). However with the latest update the share option in maps is gone! I’m hoping the developer can fix this as it was a useful feature.
Developer Response ,
Hi -J-a-x-. If your device is equipped with fingerprint-based access (e.g., Touch ID on Apple devices), you can use that feature to unlock the app instead of entering your PIN. Given the sensitive information available in the app – such as your appointment schedule – the PIN or fingerprint ID feature is an important safety measure to keep you and your information secure. -MINI Connected Team
Some of it works well
I have a 2020 Clubman S and an iPhone XS Max. The app mostly works. The remote features like location, locking/unlocking, horn, lights, ventilation work ... as well as the required services, fuel, mileage and range. So for that I am very happy. The Find Mate tags are mostly worthless. If I walk just 30-40 feet away from any of them, I get the notification on my phone or Apple watch asking if I left them behind. So that’s not good. The range should be much further. But the worst part is that the app constantly disassociates itself from the tags. It can take hours or days for it to come back ... but usually the only fix is to delete them from the app and re-add them only for it to happen again the next day or so. I even swapped out the batteries thinking it would help. No. The car sees the tags when they are working/connected but it has never notified me when I leave the item behind. Text message notifications worked in the car before the latest Apple update but email has never worked. I have deleted the phone/BT device in the car several times and re-added. Doesn’t help. Audible and calendar works good.
Must have app if you own an SE
I have a ‘21 Cooper SE and it shows how much charge I have left. If I’m charging, it shows how long it’ll take to reach 100%. And I can program it to start charging when electricity rates are at their lowest, mine is after midnight. I don’t have to remember to go to the garage at midnight and start charging, I just set up the charger and it starts automatically at midnight. I can see if I left my sunroof opened too. I always forget and leave it open, but I want to keep the new car smell. I played with the app with my coworker and flashed my headlights on the car in the parking lot. Even though entertaining my coworker and myself is very valuable, I could also use it for remotely locking and unlocking the doors. This is a great app, a must have if you own a Mini SE. It also shows my car color and rims! It’s from entering my VIN, I think that’s so cool
