MINI Connected XL Journey Mate. THERE EVERY STEP OF THE WAY.
BEFORE YOUR TRIP.
Plan your journey on your phone in the comfort of your home. Say you’re off to a music festival to meet some mates but you’ve got to buy a couple of things en route, like a tent. No problem – check out the weather, set reminders, see how long it’s likely to take and call ahead to let them know when you’re likely to arrive.
Plan one or several trips at home. Jump into your MINI, connect your smartphone and MINI Connected XL Journey Mate transfers it straight into the system. All set.
A handy little tool that shows you the time left until departure. No more of the old ‘I’m running half an hour late’ malarkey. It also shows how much fuel you have based on when your phone was last connected, and how far you should be able to travel on that.
heck how far you are from your MINI right now. Plus, see how far you’ve driven in your MINI, and compare that to how many times you could have driven round the moon…Or, if you fancy it – tap the moon and it will change to Earth. Cool, huh?
No one likes being stuck in a jam. Check out the traffic around your chosen route – you might want to readjust before you set off.
Often find yourself dithering over whether you should bring a rain mac? Check the weather at your current location and at your destination. Sorted.
KEEP AND REUSE TRIPS.
Heading to work or visiting mum? Some trips we make over and over. Keep and reuse journeys you’ve already planned for future use.
A PROPER SEND-OFF.
Going home? Off to work? Or you’ve been looking in the map view and you’ve found a great day out? Wherever you’re headed, now’s the time to let your MINI hear about it. Simply press ‘Send to car’ and, ping! Off it goes, over the airwaves.
THE ADVENTURE BEGINS.
Jump into your MINI, connect your smartphone and start up the MINI Navigation system. Everything you planned goes straight into the system – but it doesn’t stop there. MINI Connected XL Journey Mate works with you the whole way to make sure you remember everything you meant to do, that you’re up to date on traffic, and that you never have a problem topping up on fuel. Smoother journeys come as standard.
No more nervously checking the fuel gauge as you search for a petrol station. Your MINI makes a sound reminding you to check the screen when your range falls below 60km, showing a list of the nearest stations. Pick one and it’s added to your journey en route.
CALENDAR AND MEMO.
Got lunch with a mate or an impromptu work meeting? Sync your calendar events to your MINI and they’ll flash up on screen in advance. If you turn the option on, your MINI makes a little sound that reminds you to check the screen when this happens. Your MINI also reminds you of any memos you may have written to yourself. For example, you’re off to a music festival and need to buy a tent. An audio pop-up tells you to look at the screen and your exact memo will be there.
It’s a pretty good feeling when you manage to avoid a 3-hour traffic jam. Get the latest online traffic information during your journey and see it visualised on a zoomable map, so you can change your route on the go.
THE JOURNEY’S END.
Just because you’re about to arrive doesn’t mean MINI Connected XL Journey Mate will leave you in the lurch. Check for the nearest parking spots, track where you last left your MINI, and even continue the remainder of your journey once you’ve left the car. A good mate is there for you every step of the way.
Skip the frustration of searching for a parking space. When you turn this option on, a little sound reminds you to look at the screen 1km before arrival. Your MINI then displays the nearest car parks to you right now. Smooth.
LAST MILE NAVIGATION.
Continue the journey even when you’ve stopped and left your MINI. Just follow the map on your phone right to your destination. We’re with you all the way.
WHERE IS MY MINI?
Often find yourself wandering in circles around the car park? This clever little tool helps you find the parking space from the last time you were connected to MINI Connected XL Journey Mate or the MINI Connected App.
