unlocking bmw e91 320i 2007 features

Ok ,a while ago I took my car to bmw for some work and I think they did a software update and lost some of my features.Somebody mentioned you can get a cheap plugin unit to reactivate stuff.
I lost my cruise control speed indication on the dash obc
my h/lamp washers fire every time I use w/screen wipers,it used to fire the head lamp wash every 7th wiper use.
also intermittent wipe used to be once now its 3 sweeps
also rain sensor wipers not functioning
tried search feature on here but no luck,any one know what the unit is,sure it was a plug in blue tooth to your mob phone and access from there

You cannot unlock any of these features without coding. The el cheapo Carly Connect OBD II adapter has limited coding functionality and support. So your best bet is to make contact with a coder from the UK forum depending on your location or teach yourself coding. Some features may require a different part or additional module but from what you listed it sounds like you might be okay.

This is Carly: http://www.mycarly.com/product/bmw-app/

You use it via your smartphone and an adaptor that plugs into the vehicles diagnostic port. It's mostly child proof and only presents a handful of coding options so the risk of messing your car up is reduced if you are a beginner.

I'm fairly sure everything the OP mentioned are things Carly can do.

It can turn off/on and alter a lot of settings, it can't really retrofit things though.
