Mini Connectivty Options with Android (or iPhone) ?!?

Hi Guys,

Im looking to buy a used Mini sometime soon. One thing Ive been spoilt with for these years is having AD2P bluetooth on my current car.

I understand having music through any bluetooth option isn't possible unless I go for the Mini connected option? Unfortunately with this option it bumps up the price considerably.

If i was to connect my Android Note 3 to USB, would i be able to control my music (skip tracks, pause etc .....) on the steering wheel controls? or does it have to either be controlled from the dashboard? or does it have to be controlled from the phone?

Is this similar to the iPhone aswell? my contract is up and i fancy going for the iphone.

I do alot of motorway drives so controlling my music is important to me. Just wondering which is the best way to go about it, or is Mini connected the only option?

Yeah there are some Mini Coopers which have this ability to connected with an i phone or android mobile via Bluetooth.So you can enjoy your journey with this function in Mini Cooper.But sometimes it get problem with the i phone.If you want to know about the cars and their specifications so have a look on vin bmw decoder.
