hidden menu can i believe if its just a quick check you're after?

Ignition on
Restet button on clocks, press and hold for 10 seconds
Go to option unlock
code is the last 5 numbers of your VIN added together

if in doubt have a look on youtube

I use Bimmerlink (UPDATE...It's OBD Fusion I use) all the time with my iPhone. Any data you need is there, it's great:

It's surprising how long it takes to warm the engine.

BimmerLink UI looks completely different to that UI that you have there

Hi
The UI's are totally user configurable. You can have multiple screens all different.

I have been playing with three screens I have configured, but, to be honest, I only use the first screen nearly all the time.(the power HP doesn't work properly) ....

The cup holder mount is:

Belkin Universal In Car Phone Holder, Cup Mount

Works a treat 8)

I picked up one myself, probably the best one I’ve ever used, I don’t want to be a tool here, but the BimmerLink app I’ve got is all in German and I can only seem to change between blue and orange, can’t see anywhere to change UI on it
