Besides the performance wars among car manufacturers, we have now entered the digital age and the app wars have started. To stay head and shoulders above the competition, MINI has released its own MINI Cooper app for owners in the USA. With the introduction of the app for MINI owners, MINI will now allow its customers a new level of service and connectivity for their cars. The MINI Cooper app can easily be downloaded at no cost and has many great features, including integration with Amazon’s Alexa, navigation features, and remote access to the car. More importantly, MINI owners can also send navigation destinations from third-party apps.
For owners, the new app for MINI owners will be the universal interface for their MINIs, displaying all types of information, including remote service, time of service, and car status. In addition, the app will quickly show if the MINI is locked or unlocked. If you are the one who is always forgetting where you parked the MINI, fear no more as the app also comes with a vehicle finder button. And if you have your hands full and can’t be pressing buttons, Amazon’s Alexa will make your life easier by offering rapid connectivity through voice control. In addition, Alexa will also be compatible with other smart home devices and will check your messages, play music, and perform searches.
The best part is that the MINI Cooper app will also monitor your car service requirements and intervals and allow you to make any service appointments not only for your all-electric MINI Cooper SE, but also for the MINI Countryman Plug-In Hybrid. The app for MINI owners also provides access to MINI roadside assistance.
The app for MINI owners provides you with immediate details about your MINI like vehicle status (oil info), ventilation/climate control, charge and climate timer, charging history, and access to charging stations.
Further, the MINI Cooper app always knows your location. Other functions include map search, free text search, dealer search, points of interest search, parking detail screen, and destination details.
To make your driving hassle-free, other functions in the app include financial services, roadside assistance, and reporting a problem. In addition, the app will provide you with all the latest information on MINIs, recalls, service alerts, and scheduling an appointment.
The app has very similar features to those rolled out by BMW. The MINI app started the rollout last year and hopes to have it launched in more than three dozen countries in 23 languages globally. The MINI app is all about enhancing your connectivity to the digital world and keeping you firmly in control whether you are outside or inside your MINI.
