Mini Connected Question

Hi all,

I recently purchased a second hand mini. It has Mini Connected, but i cannot seem to be able to make it work with my iphone 5 and the normal usb cable (i have downloaded the mini connected app).

Do i need to connect the phone with a y cable to make it work?

i attach two pics of the screen messages.

Yes! The Y cable is essential to making it work. The factory one is very short and since there's no place to rest your phone, it tends to become disconnected during spirited driving. I got an extension and now have my phone comfortably below the e-Brake with lots of room to pick it up while still connected.
