Ok, found it but I had to dig into expert mode of the Headunit ECU (under 3001).
I was hoping that the developer of the app would have the most common functions included in the user friendly section of the app.

Anyone else with a 2018 model (or latest firmware on older model)?
For my MY17, when using the Android version of this app, it is listed under "Headunit" > Remove warning display...or words to that effect. Advance Mode for the Android version of this app still hasn't been released yet, although I did get several "bug fixes" downloads recently.

Good news: The Android version of this app now offers the Advanced Mode. *Yay!*
Bad news: It's all in German.

android vs ios

Okay trying to decide which to get, either android or ios version. For those who have either versions, can you verify which OS supports coding the tailgate for the X1 with comfort access and that it works. I have the carly pro version and it does not have the HKM module to code the tailgate and want to make sure which bimmercode app OS version works for this tailgate coding.

Feedback appreciated and thanks again...

I haven't been able to do it with the Android version of this app yet and am still working on the German to English translation for the Advanced Mode before I try it again. A while back there was a suggested way to code the hatch with E-sys. Here's the quote:

Big Thanks to Almaretto for the tip !"

Thanks for the reply, Ridin'Dirty. I purchased the Android version and had no luck in coding the HUD to display the turn signals. It took the coding changes but not seeing on HUD. Did you or anyone else successful? Also no luck to change from 3 to 5 blinks either.

I have the iOS version and I can't find the option to fold the side mirrors with a single press of the lock button instead a continuous one.
I managed to do this with the electric tailgate but could not figure out which option does the same for the mirrors.
Please note that I do not have the comfort access system, just the auto-folding mirrors pack.

Hi I am new here and started coding lately seeing the setups given here on this thread using vgate adapter and bimmercode.

So my issue is the Song ART do not come when connecting my phone via BT, it works perfectly when connecting phone via USB but in all my other BMW (3series GT and X5) song art works on BT.

I wanted to know is there any fix for this issue.. by coding??
and what is enhanced BT..? what do you get with this setting..? Also i saw an Apple enhancement option in Expert Mode has anyone tried that didnt want to screw up trying... so wanted to know if anyone has already tried that..??

After waiting 30 days I received Vgate OBD2 BOX from ebay seller from China.

I wrote BOX because the box is only thing I received, there was no OBD2 inside. First box that came to me empty from ebay. Seller refunder 18,00 eur without any problems.

Now I see that after some car updates some coding can not be done by Bimmercode, so I wonder is it good to order VGATE OBD2 again, is it still functioning? Hopefully it will arrive in the box.

I have the 2017 model.
I am using an Android tablet and the vgate 3 wifi to code.
I successfully coded some things today.
It just took a few minutes.
I did not need the expert mode yet.
Here is what I did.
Start-up logo to M-performance. Daylight at the rear.
Temperature measurement at the tires.
Digital speed visible.
Remember driving modes comfort and eco-pro allways.
Default start up in eco pro.

Also tried to set the 3 flashes to 5 without success.
According the app programmer this is not possible as I read in this thread.
http://f87.bimmerpost.com/forums/sho...338157&page=69

Thinking about changing the low fuel warnings.
Has any one encountered more dazzling stuff to be activated?

Oh forgot the most important one I did: folding mirrors immediately after comfort locking.

If you have the electric seats then I found it useful to enable the "Easy Entry" function. I did this with a laptop though, not any sort of box. Easy Entry will move the seat back a little when you open the driver's door, to give you a bit more room to get out of the car. It moves the seat back to its memorised position when you close the door as you get in after unlocking. My wife feels the benefit more than I, as she sits a lot closer to the steering wheel than me

As I say, this is really only useful if you have the electric seats of course, and I don't know if you can do it with the box and app programmers...

Yes, I have read about this possibility. I didn't buy that option.
Sadly the budget wasn't unlimited.

I noticed people are complaining about the presets being lost after programming the I drive unit.
I experienced the same.
But it seems that only the active profile is lost.
My wife's profile is still OK.
So perhaps a work around is to select the guest profile before coding to avoid your profile to be lost. Anyone with experience on this?

Just found this coding stuff

Hello! I just discovered this ability to code the x1 and so am a serious newbie. Where can I find more information to educate myself, it fascinates me.

Hi mememe, just dig into this forum, I am using the bimmercode app, because I am interested in the features, not in complex coding . There is also Carly and e-sys.

In the forum you will find that the ICAR II is working also.
Just be sure that you get the WIFI version.

I did my first coding in expert mode.
I increased the seat heating reset timer to 24 hours.
I found it annoying that it did reset after only 15 minutes.
