Learn to Navigate the New MINI App!

Shaun Waid, MINI of Grand Rapids Client Advisor, took a minute to give a quick tutorial of the brand new MINI app.

MINI App Features and Functions

MINI Identification

Once logging onto the MINI app your vehicle's information will be displayed first. This information includes:

  • Vehicle Model
  • Vehicle Picture
  • Last Sync Time
  • Window Positioning
  • Fuel Levels (Gallons & Milage to Empty)

Vehicle Status

Click on your window positioning to access the status of your MINI. In this new portal you will have the option to check "Doors & Windows", "Check Control Messages", and "Services". Each of the options will allow you to:

  • Doors & Windows: Check to see that your doors and windows are locked/unlocked or open/closed. Easily lock/unlock your MINI remotely with the app.
  • Check Control Messages: View if your MINI needs any services performed to it at a given minute.
  • Services: Remind yourself when the next scheduled maintenance is to be performed on your MINI.

MINI Controls

Under your MINI information you will see multiple MINI functions. These function include:

  • Lock: Lock your MINI remotely
  • Unlock: Unlock your MINI remotely
  • Lights: Flash the lights on your MINI (Useful feature when you are trying to find where you parked)
  • Horn: Honk the horn on your MINI (Also useful when you are trying to find where you parked)

MINI Functions

Under the MINI controls you will find two MINI functions:

  • Vehicle Finder: The vehicle finder will tell you the location of your MINI
  • Ventilation Timer: The ventilation timer gives you the option to schedule a time for the vents in your MINI to open

Dealer Services

The Dealer Services options give you the ability to select your desired MINI dealership. When you go to schedule a service appointment via the app, you will automatically be scheduling the appointment with your selected dealer.

Vehicle Information

The Vehicle Information section provides you with the basic information about your MINI, such as:

  • Model
  • VIN (Vehicle Identification Number)
  • Mileage
  • Device Connection

Under vehicle information, you will also be able to access the MINI Motorer’s Guide app, where you can find more information about being a MINI Motorer. 

Additionally, here you have the option to call roadside assistance should you need it. 


The middle icon on the bottom of the app is the location icon. Press this icon to get a map view of your location, the location of your MINI, and the location of the nearest MINI dealership.

Personal Profile

Next to the location icon is your personal profile. Here you will be able to access the MINI Online Shop, 3rd party services, FAQs, and more.
