In order to enjoy MINI Sharing you need 3 things:
- MINI equipped with the Flexible CarSharing Preparation option (5GE)
- MINI Sharing module installed in your MINI by your MINI dealer
- To have downloaded and registered the MINI Sharing app
Once the module is installed in your MINI, and you’ve downloaded the app, you just have to follow the steps of the tutorial in the app to connect your MINI to the MINI Sharing app. After the coupling has being completed, you can locate, open, drive and close your MINI with your phone. You can also invite drivers to download the app, sign up and have the possibility to request to use your MINI whenever you don't need it.
The MINI Sharing app connects with the module via Bluetooth, which means that once there is an active booking, you do not need an internet connection to open, drive or close the MINI. This allows you and your drivers to park in underground garages or remote areas. However, for some specific actions the module will need an internet connection to be able to send messages to our servers – such as for the location or fuel or battery level.
