Mini Connected and Android
This is still a huge frustration for me.
I replaced my stop-gap iPhone 5 with a new, Huawei Android phone, after checking the Mini Connected compatibility list for a phone with good support for the features I most wanted.
The result is that almost nothing works in the car. Even phone calls are not working properly and I have had absolutely zero success setting up TuneIn Radio and Spotify.
Before choosing the phone I sent a mail to BMW support, but the handinmg time on the helpdesk was so long (several weeks) that by the time I received a reply, I had already gone-ahead and chosen the phone. They described a setup workflow that has absolutely failed for me on my phone.
If anyone has any tips or tricks I'd be really happy to hear as I have no faith that BMW will live up to providing meaningful help for phones that they claim to support.
I might take the car and phone to the local BMW agent on Monday and stand over them. At least that would give me the pleasure of watching them sweat a bit.
