MINI has introduced a new Driving Excitement app for their Connected infotainment system.
Installed via an iPhone, the app has three modes which give the driver an accurate picture of how their car is performing. The condition check function monitors the engine temperature, fuel level and weather. If everything is normal and the car is in sport mode, it says "BE MINI" to tell you to kick back and have some fun.
The force meter, on the other hand, is "a new and unique visual showcase for the hallmark MINI go-kart feeling." It shows the car's longitudinal and lateral acceleration by using a virtual MINI and various circles which illuminate to reflect the driver's responses behind the wheel.
Lastly, the Digital Sports Instrument display uses the ECU to show real-time performance information including output, revs and engine temperature.
