Bimmercode, which dongle

Post by petrolhead » Sun Oct 29, 2017 1:46 pm

I want to do some coding on my 235i

Someone suggested Bimmercode. I believe the android version uses Bluetooth and apple uses WiFi?

I believe the only dongle that works with Bimmercode is Vgate iCar, is this correct?

If so, looking at Amazon, there are more than one to buy and some get good reviews and others bad reviews.

So, which dongle should I buy

Ps I have a Bluetooth dongle at the mo that I use with Torque on my android phone

Yes if you have iPhone you have to get the Wifi version. I got the Vgate 2 wifi version and it works flawlessly

However which Vgate.

As you can see some get better reviews than other so just wondering which one you bought?

I think the android version also needs the Wi-Fi vgate as my Bluetooth vgate doesn't work

The iOS version now supports the iCar Pro Bluetooth 4.0 adapter.
