Very happy with BMWhat app

Not sure if many people use this app. But I got it last night on my iphone.
App seems a bit steep at 35 but I have used a cheap WIFI adaptor from eBay for 11

Up to now I have coded a few things:

Mirrors to fold/unfold with fob
Windows up with fob (hopefully roof aswell-raining so can't check)
Power to windows after engine off
Window to keep moving when door opens
Full brightness of angel eyes

There's a few modules that it won't let me into, it says that is because I don't have their adaptor, which I may have to buy because I can't get into the module that controls the wipers. Drives me insane that they don't finish the cycle when the engine goes off (it's quite an embarrassing thing for a modern car)

All in all though, I am very happy with the app

Sounds daft, but is this an app for your phone that enables you to code the above items via wifi/obd port?

Yes, I only found out about it a few weeks ago. It's a great idea, nice and mobile so I will be taking it to any meets/shows etc.

It will probably live in that nicely lined cubbyhole below the light switch, just above ODB port.

Apparently the android version works a lot better and has more options.

You can also read fault codes, I think you can clear them too.

I bought it just for the coding

Before anyone takes the plunge, from their website:

Coding with iPhone: Because of the limitations of the wireless adapters, writing or changing codings via WIFI is only possible with models produced after about 03/2007. Because Apple unfortunately does not allow or support the required USB connection, the app can not code models produced before about 03/2007. For those cards the different coding options are visible, but you can not change them. This limitation can only be resolved when Apple supports USB connection.

Which is why Android is superior

Only kidding just in case the Apple fan boys come out in protest at my comment

I have this app on my Galaxy S5 and its really good. It does allow you to check fault codes and clear them but the coding doesn't work on mine due to the Bluetooth odb adaptor that I have.

I think I need to buy the cable variety that links to the phone via the micro usb port and then it might allow all the features of the app to start working... but not bad.

Anyone have a link to that type of cable ?

After reading this i got the free app as a trial and it connected, read some codes then allowed me to send report.

So i took the plunge and brought the app which is great with the wifi port i have but its not connecting to allow me to look at the coding i have tried letting it to auto select engine and tried to do manually still no coding options.

was there any settings you had to change?

I managed to get the torque app talking to my car using my cheapo Bluetooth adapter. My next step is to try the BMWhat app, but my car was built pretty much on the cut off point. Will I know from using the trial app whether it can code using Bluetooth?

I'm not 100% sure, if you already have the adaptor then give it a try. The trial version is free and I am guessing if it can read all the modules then you should be able to code. On the trial it lets you change options but then won't let you actually save them

Best money Ive spent on my BMW so far. Ive used it to code 5 BMW's since Ive purchased it a week ago. (paid for the app)

The trial will let you read the modules on the car and not code. Still best money I've spent on my car.

That's my worry, as I believe the full version will only let you read and not write using bluetooth if I have an older car. I will check out how much the cables are for my Galaxy S3 first!

I read a lot of reviews and all the android users were floating about how they could use Bluetooth and how they could use more features. You can also use a wired connection which I believe are quite cheap.

I'm not sure about resetting codes, I am using an iphone 5S and not sure of my build date but the car is a 57 plate. I have only used for coding up to now.

There is an email address on their website, try emailing them to ask before you buy.
