Good news for Android users. With the launch of the F56, MINI has finally integrated Android support into its MINI Connected infotainment system. On the F56, the MINI Connected option will be available in conjunction with the “Visual Boost Radio” and the MINI navigation system.

While the Android platform support is new, MINI Connected continues to offer significant smartphone integration in the car. The system piggy-backs your smartphone’s data connection, allowing the use of online services for infotainment, communication and aids to the driver experience. These services are provided via apps with functional diversity that is being continuously expanded. In future, both the MINI Connected App and the so-called MINI Connected “ready” Apps supplied by third-party providers will be available for both Android and iOS.
