Earlier this month, MINI announced that it is working with Pandora to make the Pandora iPhone app compatible with MINI Connected.
Work has now finished and the updated Pandora internet radio app, the first third party app approved for MINI Connected, is now live and available for free download at the iTunes Store.
All MY 2011 MINI vehicles equipped with MINI Connected will be able to stream Pandora through the new iPhone app, and it will immediately work with the existing MINI Connected system.
The iPhone is linked to the car either via a USB cable, supplied with MINI Connected, or through the center armrest with an available snap-in adapter.
Once the iPhone is connected to the vehicle, the Pandora app and all of its functions are operated by the vehicle’s existing controls.
Once connected, all functions of the app are operated using the vehicle’s joystick, steering wheel buttons and on-board monitor.
