Useless All it does is make charging my phone via the usb socket impossible, as plugging it in disconnects my bluetooth and this stupid app doesn't support Spotify or even Google play music. It has a music player of sorts but it only recognises music files on the physical phone - cloud storage doesn't work, even tracks on my phone's SD card don't show up. This kind of laziness is not what I expected from BMW/Mini. Waste of play store real estate. Wish I could give 0 stars.
My 2015 Mini Countryman S can't even do Bluetooth music streaming from my Galaxy S7 edge Android phone, and even plugging in to USB doesn't recognize any music files stored in my phone. Really sloppy work here on the app. Even my 2011 BMW E90 iDrive worked flawlessly. To think both BMW and Mini are from the same group.
Mince,absolute mince As others have said,this is so bad its untrue. Actually,Bluetooth is so hit and miss,thats part of the problem. The fact I need to plug this in does my head in,why isnt it all connectionless? Cant play anything music wise so why BMW built this,or dont put any real effort into it,for a global brand,is beyond me.
Promises much., delivers nothing Would be a great app if it does what it says but unfortunately after wasting a lot of time it still doesn't work. Followed all instructions, phone is compatible but zilch. Disappointed that Mini appears not to have taken any notice of comments here.
Would be good if it worked For an expensive car and media pack, I would have expected better from MINI. I've tried LG g3, Samsung s6 and s7 and none have connected. It says online that the LG phone is compatible, but still no luck. Why say online that it works, when it clearly doesn't? All I'm trying to do is play Spotify through mini connected..surely its not that hard. MINI say it's only compatible with iPhones, which is really stupid..especially when a lot of people have android. It should be able to work on all latest phones.
Dreadful. I'm amazed that a company as MASSIVE as BMW (MINI) would advocate such a horrifically cobbled together app. Not only is this blatantly made by a third party developer, but the fact that BMW are charging for it is disgusting. I cannot get this app to work in conjuction with the Media XL Pack in my MINI whatsoever, it drops the connection constantly and the need for a USB completely goes against the wireless functionality that this is based on. Awful.
