New Mini Driving App Gives High Tech Performance Data

 

When you think of automotive iPhone apps, what usually comes to mind is GPS, traffic alerts, music, social media, and other ways to get outside information inside your car.
 
If you have a new Mini, however, you now have a way to use an iPhone app that keeps you focused on things going on under the hood. The new Driving Excitement App is downloaded through the iTunes App Store, and can then be uploaded to your Mini through Mini Connect so all the data is shown on your Mini’s digital display.
 
Once installed, the app can be accessed to show in-depth performance data like engine temperature, current horsepower, rpms, fuel level, and the Force Meter even shows the points of force and acceleration during tight turns. The app also gives weather updates and you can use other Mini Connected apps to do the streaming music and social media thing, but we were happy to hear that an app has finally been designed with the serious driver in mind.  
 
It seems all it doesn’t do it talk to you like KITT from Knight Rider, but with the rate at which automotive technology has been advancing, that might not be too far away.
