Bimmercode strikes again having payed for itself over and over :)
I was a little worried as this is from a 2014 car and mine is a 2016 car but it works a treat. Image
Looks great.

Is that from an F30? I need to start keeping my eye out for these on eBay.
I was lucky enough to find a RHD f20 one for £350. The 3/4 series ones can be picked up a bit cheaper but obviously have the bit of a gap at the back.
Amazing how much better the standard nav looks with the pro nav screen.

Hey that look great well done!

May I ask what the part number is and where you got it? Been looking into doing it myself but would prefer to avoid going down the F30 screen route thanks to my OCD :oops:

Are you linked to your phone? I thought it required an app
Tried the app too and it didn't work but I don't have any of the connected drive app services. It may work if you have those.
Correct, I have pro nav and connected and it works fine. When I get in the car my phone launches the m timer and Spotify apps in the background and they are instantly available in iDrive.

Thanks for the info. Could I just ask you to check the part number please? Can't find the existence of 934626001 on realoem or elsewhere.

That's the right part number. On the screen it shows that number but also with BM in front of it, maybe that's why it won't show up.

Hi guys,

Bought the app and the adapter and have successfully coded a few things. Thanks for everyone for putting their advice up.

Quick question. My front electronic module has gone missing. No idea why and have not coded anything for it yet. Anyone got any ideas? Tried leaving the car and returning and rebooting phone and using iPad and iPhone.

Emailed for support but would appreicate anyone else's input / advice.

Thanks
Dan

What ever you have coded already, I would reverse by using previous backup and see if it comes back?

Thanks I used the back up. The owner of the app helped too as I didn't know how to get back up for all modules. He was swift to reply and all is working.

For those that don't know to restore back up for all modules you need to use the car access module. Click on this and then select the back up and push code. Worked a treat.

Have also saved backups on my desktop just in case.

Indicator cycles in the FEM


Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
I have changed the indicator cycles to 5 hoping indicator flashes 5 times before going off. Yet when using the indicator stalk lightly before it clicks and stays on until you complete your turn my indicator only flashes three times which is how It comes from factory. Am I missing something? I would like it to flash 5 times when using indicator stalk lightly.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Might be a silly question but did you press code after changing the value?
