For those of you that are also listeners to White Roof Radio, you are already familiar with how I feel about MINI Connected and the Navigation system. $1750 dollars is a lot of money for me for something that I didn’t really get.
While I still don’t get MINI Connected, and still think the navigation is embarrassingly bad, I did have an **A HA!** moment last week while I was playing with the configurator at MINIUSA.com last week.
MINI Connected also get the Bluetooth connectivity package.
After a few facepalms I realized that for $500 you can get the cool screen and all the stuff that comes with having MINI Connected. Of course, you still have to have an iPhone and will for the foreseeable future, but that’s a topic for anther day.
If you are planning on getting Bluetooth ($500), I hearby stand corrected that it would be a pretty good idea to take another look at MINI Connected.
But skip the navigation. For $750 you can buy a couple of Garmin’s that will do a better job.
