Detroit motor show 2008 - Mini and the iPhone
14 January 2008
The system allows the driver to use their phone and its audio functions, with software automatically pausing music if a call comes in, and then continuing it again when the conversation is ended.
The telephone works through the loud speakers, with all information displayed either on the radio display or, if fitted, on the sat-nav, which has the additional benefit of allowing you to work the iPhone using the sat-nav's joystick control.
To listen to music, the iPhone must be plugged into a cable adaptor that also charges the phone.
