Its official carplay is coming to mini



Last year we broke the story that CarPlay was coming to the MINI with July production. Today MINI is making it official along with a slew of other technology and display changes on the Countryman and Clubman. We expect these changes to make their way to the rest of the range in either September production or for the LCI next March.

Look to the right



New operation for MINI Driving Modes and MINI Head-Up Display.
Operation of the MINI Driving Modes will be modified in all current MINI models as of July 2017. Changing from the standard setting to SPORT mode or GREEN Mode and will now be facilitated by means of a toggle switch positioned underneath the air conditioning controls. Head-Up Display controllers will be managed from a separate menu item in the MINI operating system from July 2017 onwards.

It is not "Old School" if you can not put a Weber on it.

I guess retrofit is impossible, right?

This is one reason I opted to just get the radio.....it's a car not a computer! (well it is really). But, why get a car that you plan to keep to only have all the software, etc. continually updated or become outdated? Not for me! My phone is all I need! ;-)

given that car play is being talked about as a cost option, i wonder what operating system will come as standard?

Nice updates although I think the driving modes should have remained on the gear surround
