I just bought it, had 21 codes, cleared them all. Coded the comfort window close and key eject. On my 08 e92 with a DCAN cable. Can't speak on anything else just yet but so far so good.

I bought it too. More for the diagnostics than coding. More coding features would be nice, but still not bad.
Interface is quite easy, and intuitive.

You can't just get the APK it has some sort of verification. The app even warns you if you use a pirated version it "could" fuck up your car.

How does this app connect with the car? Do you need to buy anything other than the app?

I've had this app for a while. It is fantastic app in my opinion, even through it costs a bit. Much better than any 3rd party scan tool (hardware/software) and it appears to be fairly accurate. Since I have both E90 and E70, this has become indispensable diagnostic tool. It has helped a lot already with finicky wire issues on E70's rear PDC.

Also, the coding feature is very nice. I activated fog light illumination on unlock and long press lock button to close windows on remote.

Got it over the weekend and did some coding with a $10 elm327 I got off amazon. Doesn't have the full range of coding like via ncsxpert but it does basic stuff. The ability to see and clear codes is super handy. Now instead of carrying my laptop and cable everywhere, I have my phone and obdii elm327 connector and are good.

This app indicates that 03/2007 and newer I can use blue tooth obd but on my e90 05/2007 production date app indicates I need an actual cable.


Can someone recommend a cheap usb obd usb cable for my droid?

Does anybody know if there is a cable to go directly from android to obd? I have a obd blue tooth but it limits what you can do with it.
