That'll actually be really good to do since I skipped the digital speedo mod while coding with BMWhat, even though it offers it.

Could I be a huge pain in the ass and ask you to PM me a link? I'll be looking around, but once I have the right guide I'll be good to go I'm sure.


Thanks.
I'll try it this way, probably won't work. It is under step 3:

I'd love to learn coding if for no other reason than for battery registration. Im tech savvy, work in a high-tech field, but there is just something lacking when it comes to the info online. I'm generally good at finding info, and I've seen the DIYs and documents available out there. It still isn't really intuitive. I'm sure after watching someone once or twice it would be, bp but not yet for me...

Not yet. See the developer's page for what you can code.

This is on the users' wish list however, Row 52 on the spreadsheet.

After seeing this thread, I ordered the Wifi adapter off amazon then tried the lite app which worked with my 11' 135i. I bought the app and coded my car to do the fun stuff like close windows, unlock when ign turned off, and fold mirrors on lock. It worked great and did everything I wanted to, I think it was worth the $50. The app was able to be used on my Iphone as well as my Ipad. I actually coded with my ipad, but will have the app on the phone in case I have to restore if needing to go to dealer. I have my V1 hardwired through the SAVVY port from the obdii so I got a thin extension then a 2 way splitter and now I have the V1 as well as the OBDII wifi adapter hooked up at all times.

No issues with battery drain leaving the OBDII adapter plugged in at all times? I have a Bluetooth adapter that is small enough that I can even put the OBDII cover on with it plugged in but I think it stays powered and running even when the car is off. Also with the Bluetooth adapter the passcode is really simple and insecure so I am slightly worried about someone seeing my OBDII and potentially messing up my car. Is the wifi adapter more secure? Can you set the passcode or is it at least something longer than 4 characters and random?

When the vehicle is shut off the OBDII port gets power killed to it as well after a couple seconds. Mine is WIFI though and not bluetooth. Try to connect to the bluetooth when your cars been off for a couple minutes, I would guess you would not be able to connect due to lack of power to the OBDII. I didn't set a pass-code for the car, I figure that anyone trying to mess with the car would have to be in it knowing I had the device, as well as have the appropriate software/apps to mess with it. Now that you mention it though, thinking I'll go back and make a passcode just to be on the paranoid/safe side. Not sure about more secure or the type of P/W assuming it'll be just like WEP/WAP standard.

I would buy the adapter and app if I could register batteries, and be able to change their Abh capacity and type. Until then Im not sure its worth it to me...

I learned to code on my E90, coding on the E8x is identical to the E9x. Used INPA/NCS Expert per the DIYs in the E9x forum. $99 cable too.

Added an alarm module, coded that, digital speedo, shift suggest lights (for economy not speed),windows close with fob, and I think a few other things. It's really easy if you follow the DIYs and back up files. The E9x coding spreadsheet is awesome

Hi guys, not sure if I should start a new thread, but I need to install and code new injectors on my MY09 E82 N54, does BMWhat app allow for this sort of coding?
If not, what is the easiest process of DIY coding injectors?

I bought the BMWhat/Ivini Android app and BT OBDII adapter, and they work great on my wife's 2011 128i Convertible. There is no facility to code injectors with BMWhat that I can find, although you have to actually connect to the ECU for a particular car type to get a full list of modules and what you can code in each of them. I also have INPA, which is what I used to code injectors and other items with my previous 2007 E92 335i, and I think that may be your best bet for that item. I had no trouble coding things like door chime, digital speedo/actual speed, some lighting options, and so forth. So far, so good, but I'm still waiting for them to decipher the comm method used in the F-series cars so I can code my 2013 335i.

Coding?

I am in the market for some simple coding for my 2011 128i (E82). I am currently in Charlotte, NC. but reside in Hampton Virginia. If you guys don't mind lending me some assistance, I think I might be able to do some coding on my own. Currently I don't own a reader but I will look for a reliable reader to do the coding on my own. Is there anywhere in particular that I should look for the reader?

Thanks for the Assist!

with NCSExpert, you use a laptop and a cable. The software is available for download (free) on-line. The cable as to have a converter in it. The one I bought cost about $100. Here's a link:

http://www.one-stop-electronics.com/...&product_id=16

There are also tutorials available on-line. I wouldn't say it's exactly easy but if you follow directions it goes pretty quickly.

Sorry to bump an old thread. Is there a list of codes that anyone has compiled for the 1er with descriptions and test results? There is a Google doc for the E90 where it shows 2007-2011 and people have gone through and checked off whether the code works for their particular model year.

The modules are the same between the 3 series and 1 series. Just depends on what base options your car has. It can be a little daunting to sift through it all, but well worth it!
