I take it you are not in airplane mode before you connect car? And you have internet access?

So an update,

I have now tried a USB stick and drive connected to both a Samsung tab 's and a Motorola E5 both of which apparently support OTG and both see the drives !

However when I connect either phone or tablet to the car via a bimmergeeks cable and the OTG cable the MHD app still does not see the DME
It says no voltage make sure power is on and cable connected !

Is this me or am I not meant to remap this car do you think !

Is there anyone near me in Rushden Northants who could try their successful cables on my car to confirm whether I am doing something wrong or try to rule out my tablet/phone/cables so I can at least move forward with this ?

To confirm : my car is a 135i 2010 N55

Anybody ?

That's annoying, I used to live in Wellingborough so would have been easy to test.

That's a pity !

Where abouts in Lincolnshire are you as I'm not against a drive if I can get it sorted if you're up for it ?

No not far at all in one of these cars !
If you are open to just trying to narrow down the problem I would be grateful and I'm sure some liquid refreshment in compensation could be arranged !

PM me if it's an option ?

I’m sure you have but have you uninstalled the app, deleted any history of it then reinstalled?

An update :

Drove up to a fellow member today and tried my phone and OTG cable with his ODB cable and success at last !
He then tried my Bimmergeeks cable on his car and it did not connect.
To both our surprise it would seem that the Bimmergeeks cable that i purchased from the USA is faulty.

Many thanks to Greg for his help and patience !

Now all i have to do is get that refund,time for some more grey hair !

We got there in the end :fest:

Not impressed with bimmergeeks, their duff cable caused all this mess about.

Just goes to prove that a normal cheaper cable would’ve be sufficient
