PostSubject: Mini Connected v2.2.0 for iPhone   7th December 2011, 15:57

Just to let you know they have updated the iPhone Mini Connected Application...

What's New In Version 2.2.0
Dear MINI Connected User

The comprehensive range of functions to be found in MINI Connected has now been enhanced by the latest app update, which has some unique, new functions. In addition some technical restrictions have now been removed, stability has been improved and optimised in line with the new iOS5 operating system.
We hope you continue to have fun with MINI Connected.


For any questions, suggestions or if you would like more details, please check out: www.MINI.com/Connectivity

Some changes in detail:

Driving Excitement:
The functions Condition Check, Force Meter and Digital Sport Instruments open up unique opportunities to let you get more enjoyment out of driving your MINI.

MINIMALISM Analyser and Mission Control:
Once again both functions are available with Apple iOS5 devices and the additional special version "Bluetooth mobile preparation with USB Audio Interface" (SA6NE) through an iPhone connection via USB/AUX-In –or– optional Snap-In adapter.

Mode switcher:
Predefined function profiles for the vehicle can be activated via the new mode selection in the iPhone app. The "Excitement Mode" focus is very much centred on the driver and his/her MINI, in order to enable the driver to experience the best possible go-kart feeling. In addition the active audio function can also be selected. In this mode all the other functions are deactivated.
It goes without saying that they are however still available in the usual way via the "MINIMALISM / Infotainment Mode".

Update:

Ok, had a play with v2.2.0 on the way home. It gives 3 new gauges and two displays on the centre display.



On the left is the engines current output in either HP or Kw on the right you can either have torque output or rpm - there are numbers at the bottom and changing graph going up the outside of the inner circle.

In the centre is the current engine temp'




This is the Force Meter, it displays changes in 'G' in 360 degrees, as you twist/turn and accelerate.

Can't wait to give it a go, as I haven't been able to use most of the features in the previous version as I didn't have the armrest docking thingy Smile

Yeah, I don't think you need one, just the cable now.

can only be retro fitted to 2011 plate (> Sept 2010) check out www.mini.com/connectivity

MINI Connected can be retrofitted (2010 model update MINI and MINI Countryman only) beginning Q1/2011 if a Radio MINI Visual Boost or a MINI Navigation system is part of the car already. MINI Connected is available in most MINI markets. Please contact your dealer for further information on availability of MINI Connected and the MINI Connected feature set in your country.

Mine was retro-fitted and was a bit painful - its a late 2010 model and does't have all the functionality of the 2011 model.
