In the interest of safety and convenience, some Mini Coopers are equipped with Bluetooth capability for operating your mobile phone. Calls can be made or accepted at the push of a button or, if your Mini is so equipped, with the sound of your voice. Before you start using your Bluetooth device with your Mini, you must perform a one-time set up, called a "pairing", so your Mini and your phone can communicate with each other.
