Ratings and Reviews
Worth every penny!!!
I have had an iPhone ever since the 3GS and this is the first review I have ever felt a need to write. This app is awesome... I used to have a Pontiac G8 which are made in Australia and I remember looking with a buddy on how to remove the video in motion limit... A company out of Australia wanted 400 bucks for the unit to disable it and then you had to send the thing back... For my BMW I paid 20 bucks for the OBD sensor and 27 bucks for this app and I have already coded about 8 things for my car.... Heck I would have paid 27 bucks just to get rid of the annoying nag screen you get when you start the car before you can change the radio station.... Worth every penny!! Thanks for the great app!!! PS the Carly device and app are a rip off!!
Very well done useful app.
This is a well supported app for safely coding your BMW. It allows you to safely change and adjust features on your car and ensures the current state is backed up prior to update.
The developer was extremely responsive to my question and is very engaged in adding options to the existing feature set.
I would suggest adding a “basic” mode for the least sophisticated users that hides the underlying structure of which modules you are actually updating, and just lets you check off common functional changes that the end user is likely to want to change.
A sample list would be:
Video in motion
Mirror fold on locking
Brake force flashing
Keyfob close rear hatch (x series)
Keyfob close windows/roof
Also I found the app doesn’t like to initially communicate with the WiFi obd2 dongle.
If I go into the WiFi and renew the lease once or twice, it then consistently connects to the dongles WiFi existing connection (iPhone 7). I’m assuming this may be able to be tweaked by an app update.
Not as useful as it could be
The idea behind this app, and it’s a good one, is that changing options in your BMW should be push-button easy. The alternative until now has been to use a complex, cracked version of BMWs own software to make changes in the cars.
Unfortunately, this app fails to deliver on that vision. For at least some of the the things it offers to change in my car series, the only way to undo them is to restore a backup of the ECU.
This means that if you want to try combinations of settings you must use point-in-time backups to undo some settings while others are simply turned off in the app. IOW, there are two completely separate, unrelated user interaction styles in the app. That’s a problem for users who become responsible for figuring out which backup matches which state of the ECU.
The developer is responsive in email but has indicated he has no plans to fix this in the near term. Until then, you should probably use E-Sys and avoid this app since at least the latter has exactly one user interface, albeit a complicated one. Otherwise you’d better take notes and screenshots of what you did when in the app.
