This tutorial/demo was done on a 2013 Mini Cooper S Coupe with the Technology Package and Mini Connected with Navigation and HK sound packages.
- 1.On your Mini, go into Telephone.
- 2.Add New Phone. This will put your Mini’s Bluetooth into Pairing mode.
- 3.On your phone, be sure Bluetooth is enabled, and find your Mini. It will be listed with the name on your Mini’s screen.
- 4.Once your phone connects, it will ask for a pairing code. On your Mini, create a quick four-digit code (e.g., 0000). Then enter that code on your phone.
- 5.Once connected/paired, the Mini will ask for what features to use. By default, it will check Audio and Telephone if your phone supports those features.
Resetting Mini Connected Bluetooth
- 1.Go into Telephone
- 2.Right-direction push the navigation knob, and then scroll down to Telephone and uncheck the mark next to Bluetooth to disable it. Then click on it again to re-enable it. This is basically like resetting your Bluetooth on your computer/phone/tablet but in the car. Once I had the Office features working on my phone, it seemed to always connect after the initial setup.
Using Mini Connected Office
- 1.To access your messages, you can either go into Office >, then hit Left on the navigation knob, and then scroll down to Messages. You can also go into Address Book >, hit Left on navigation knob, and then choose Messages.
- 2.Bluetooth is required to use the Office features on your iPhone. Therefore, you need to have the USB cable connected to use Mini Connected apps and Bluetooth connected for the phone, office, and address book features. As a note, I have an Android Galaxy Note 2 as my main phone, and it is paired to my Mini. However, my iPhone 4S is only connected via USB/Audio Aux in. In turn, I do not have access to its Phone, Calendar or Office Email features.
