Well, I puckered up and plucked up the courage to try the Carly product and adaptor to change some of the codes on my F11. Having spent the £40+ on the OBD wireless adaptor and £40 or so on the IOS application I nervously tried the product. For coding I tried some of the simpler tasks activating folding mirrors 0 seconds after remote locking, enabled the easy entry/exit steering tilt and auto-activating the Active High Beam option when the headlights are active. I found the process simple and easy to-do. There were however a couple of disappointments. 1) The product does not, as yet, support NBT iDrive (mildly disappointing and my fault for not doing enough due diligence) 2) The diagnostics found 15 error codes that could not be cleared. Many I was not bothered about but the ODC sensors are showing a short circuit despite working and with the immobiliser system. On the whole an easy product to use but it does lack some options that appear on the F10 cheat sheet, e.g. HUD settings being one set of obvious odes. Hope this helps anyone who like me was intrigued by the idea of coding but was put off by the need for German and the MS Windows Like Registry structure when playing with their pride a joy C00lh4nd
Randomly messing about with carly app, I notice the actual intake temp looked suspect (no thermonuclear reaction there I'm fairly sure) so assumed it was reading in milli volts as per the engine temp below it, when I switched the engine off, it dropped to 75c, just wondering if it's a carly anomaly or an actual error (no codes so....) car is a 2003 e60 530D 218bhp version
