Why are there differences between the various mobile devices in terms of handling and scope of functions?

Telephone manufacturers implement the Bluetooth® standard in different ways.

As implementation of the Bluetooth® standard differs distinctly between various mobile phones and may also change during the product life cycle of a model, limitations of function in the vehicle may occur for which MINI is not responsible. In addition to the software status of a mobile phone, the following factors may also influence compatibility:

  • Hardware version of the mobile phone
  • Mobile phone configuration (e.g. size of telephone book, power-saving mode)
  • Operating status of the mobile phone (e.g. battery charge, length of operation, degree of usage)
  • Network and SIM card

For this reason, sporadic impairment of functions cannot be ruled out, even in the case of mobile devices which otherwise function reliably.
