Coding Internet over Bluetooth and not over BMW

Dear friends,
the car I m coding right now has more or less all options but there is one problem I would like to address (allmost all others are solved trough reading here):
As it is a Germany delivered car the Internet surfing option is only available trough a BMW contract (150 € per year) besides the BMW Assist/ConnectedDrive. I know that for some markets where the Internet option is not available there is the possibility to use the internet through bluetooth connection via smartphone. How and where do I code this? Some in the net were already successful but are not sharing the route how to do it. Of course I dont want to affect BMW Assist/Connected Drive. I would only like to change the Internet option to tethering over Bluetooth.....

Thanks a lot

I have read extensively on this, and I have tried getting BMW Live working on my F10 with no success. I know it is possible though, as the Professional Retrofitters offer it. In any event, my understanding is that the two, BMW Assist and BMW Live (Internet), can not coexist. It's one or the other. The BMW Live (Internet) is better in that you get Google Street View, Google Panoramio, and the Web Browser; however, since Google Send-To is part of BMW Assist, if you replace BMW Assist with BMW Live you, you loose that functionality. Other than that, I don't see any downside, and the upside, besides the advanced functionality, is you can save 150 € per year.

You can start by coding the following and see what you get:

HU_CIC, 3003 TELEFON_TELEMATIK_ONLINE:

ONLINE_SERVICES = aktiv / Werte=01
ONLINE_BROWSER = beide_aktiv / Werte=03 - Adds "BMW Online" and "Internet" under ConnectedDrive=>BMW Assist
ONLINE_BROWSER_LIVE = aktiv / Werte=01 - Replaces "BMW Online" with "BMW Live" under ConnectedDrive=>BMW Assist.

This is for an F10, so other chassis coding may differ slightly.

If that does not work, I believe you will have to remove BMW Assist related services (presumably S639A) from the VO, and recode the CIC based on the modified VO.

If it seems to be working, but the Internet screen says it is not available in your country, I believe you will need to code the VIN of an "allowed" country into Combox, and in the Combox set TELEMATIK_VIN=coding_vin, which tells the Combox which VIN number to use, either the one coded or the one found on the MOST BUS (i.e. the car's).

In summary, BMW Live can be enabled, but BMW Assist needs to be removed, but without removing Bluetooth, and the Combox VIN needs to be from a country authorized to utilize the BMW Live Servers / Portal.

The problem for U.S. cars, we don't have SA612 for Assist, rather we have SA639 (BMW Assist with Bluetooth), and if you remove SA639, you also loose Bluetooth. I am not sure how to remove Assist, and add just Bluetooth. I will play around with it some more though and see if I can figure it out. Let me know if you are able to get yours working, and if so, how.

Thanks for your response. I've already tried before what you suggested to code in this module: HU_CIC, 3003 TELEFON_TELEMATIK_ONLINE. Unfortunately I had no success neither Internet was working nor Assist any more. Every combination other than the original resulted in some trouble so for now I stopped my trials and asked here. I've read some time ago that it is possible to code also with the Assist active that Internet works over the smartphone.... hopefully you or someone else will come up with some solution :-)

Oh well. I may just end up paying to have it done. I think it was only $250 if I remember right.

I already have the BMW Online enabled but do not have Internet. Using the parameters below for Online Browser, I now get the additional option 'Internet' in Connected Drive. I only needed to change the Online_Browser to 03 for this to take effect (nothing else).
BMW online still works fine, no issues there.
Trying out Internet gives the error 'Not available for your country'

Can you guide which exact settings I need to change to get this to work? where do I code the telematik_vin and to what value?

I don't think I need to modify the VO, but please advise.

I was browsing through the parameters and there are many settings for Data Networking and Bluetooth networking, DUN and PAN profiles. Would I need to modify these as well?

Any help would be much appreciated.

My car is UK 2012 June F10 with Professional SatNav. I have the BMW Assist pack but not Internet.

Well I was playing around with a lot of parameters but the result was that Assist stopped working and Internet was not available. Also playing around with DUN and PAN did not give me the desired result. So far there is no solution from my point of view.

Well, if I knew how to make this work, it would be working already in my car .

Read this thread:

http://www.bmwcoding.com/showthread....=telematik_vin

The difficulty here is the people doing this are doing it with E Chassis vehicles and using NCS Expert, so it does not directly equate to F Chassis coding with E-Sys, but conceptually it is the same.

telematik_vin should be somewhere in the Combox ECU. I never got that far with it, as I could not even get the 'Not available for your country' message to appear, presumably because my BMW Assist was still active.

What needs to be entered somehow in there is the VIN plus a checksum digit of another car that was built for a country that is authorized to use the BMW Live Portal (European, UK, etc.).

Modifying a VO, writing it to the car, and coding the affected ECU is the "easiest" way to add / configure something, as it will automatically make all the required FDL Code changes for you. That said, you can manually FDL Code every individual entry and accomplish the same thing.

You should not have to mess with any of the Data Networking and Bluetooth networking, DUN and PAN profiles.

I'm not sure if you got anywhere further with this, but here is what I have been able to figure out:

Code CMB_MEDIA / 3006 TELEMATIK / TELEMATIK_VIN = Coding_VIN /Werte=01

Since NCS Expert won't work on Fxx Chassis, to Code a "working" VIN # in the Combox, use EDIABAS Toolset 32, which is installed as part of E-Sys, and do the following:

- Launch tool32.exe (C:\EDIABAS\Bin\TOOL32.EXE)
- Hit F3 or Go to File, Load SGBD Group File
- Select CMEDIAR.prg (Combox ECU) located in C:\EDIABAS\Ecu\cmediar.prg
- Scroll down to C_FG_SCHREIBEN Job
- In argument put new VIN + 1 digit (use any digit you want for the extra checksum digit and no spaces)
- Press the 1*> button (Start Job Once Only) on toolbar at top
- Result should show Okay.

I think the key for U.S. cars to get rid of BMW Assist, is we need to remove option S639A - PREPARATION F MOBILE PHONE CPL. USA/CDN (BMW Assist) and replace it with option S644A - PREPARATION F MOBILE PHONE W BLUETOOTH and then code KOMBI, CIC and CAS.

I may give this a shot next weekend.

@gspannu; Can you run C_FG_LESSEN with No Arguments and see if it returns the current Combox Vin Number? Assuming it does, then run C_FG_SCHREIBEN again, but this time with the same VIN Number returned by C_FG_LESSEN job, and with the extra checksum digit, and see if that works? I am trying to determine if the CMEDIAR.prg is working with Fxx Chassis. If it is, then I would try other VIN Numbers and see of one sticks.

I am about to go to my car (in next 15 minutes) to try what you have recommend in the previous post…

Can you please provide a little more detail on how to do C_FG_LESSEN?

Apologies, I have not used EDIABAS in anger (but happy to learn & play); so a little guidance from you would be appreciated.

Just tried what you suggested and I still get the error while trying to read the VIN. If you se the attached image you would see that some junk is being returned.

I tried this twice, once with TELEMATIK_VIN = MOST and then with =Coding; but same result with both. I did not try setting it to my original VIN though. (can try it if you think it will work or shed more light on the problem)



Does it shed any light? Thanks for your support…..

* UPDATED *
Just to add on…..
I just read the Job-Info window carefully (see screenshot-right hand window; 3rd paragraph); and it says that the FG_NR (comment: Fahrgestellnummer 7-stellig) should be 7-digit long (i.e. the last 7 characters of the VIN). 'Fahrgestellnummer 7-stellig' in German translates to '7-digit vehicle identification number'

So, should we not be coding the VIN as only the last 7 characters? Where does the whole 17 character VIN and a check-digit come into play.
Possibly my ignorance on the subject, but I thought I'd mention it anyway...

Not looking good. Try one other thing. Run Tool32.exe as an Administrator, and try C_FG_LESSEN again, and see if it makes a difference.

I always run Esys and tool32 with 'Run as Administrator'...

Any idea about the 7-digit VIN for the parameter (in my updated post)?

I don't think entering the VIN # itself, Short VIN or Long VIN, is the issue at the moment since reading the current Combox VIN # with C_FG_LESSEN with no Arguments at all is returning the same ERROR_ECU_SERVICE_NOT_SUPPORTED.

My suspicion is that the CMEDIAR.prg SGBD Group File will only work with Exx chassis, possibly due to a different address on the Most Bus.

I am going to try it on my car this evening and see if I get the same error.

Surely there is a way to do this in E-Sys, but I'll be dammed if I can figure it out, but still working on it.

It's the same as the C_FG_SCHREIBEN Job, just select the C_FG_LESSEN job instead. So:

- Launch tool32.exe (C:\EDIABAS\Bin\TOOL32.EXE)
- Hit F3 or Go to File, Load SGBD Group File
- Select CMEDIAR.prg (Combox ECU) located in C:\EDIABAS\Ecu\cmediar.prg
- Scroll down to C_FG_LESSEN Job
- Press the 1*> button (Start Job Once Only) on toolbar at top
- Result should show Okay. SHould return current Combox VIN #.

For writing a VIN to the Combox in E-Sys, I figured that out, and it is very simple:

So simple in fact, that I am mad I spent so much damn time in Tool32, CMEDIA.prg and E-Sys trying to figure it out.

First you must code CMB_MEDIA / TELEMATIK_VIN = Coding VIN using your real FA VIN. Then, open your FA up in the FA-Editor, change the VIN, Caluclate FP just to make sure there are no problems with it, and then save the FA with a new name, i.e. FA_VIN_FAKE. Lastly, go to the coding module, and under Vehicle Order load your new FA_VIN_FAKE, activate FA, and then FDL code CMB_MEDIA. Lastly, read CMB_MEDIA coding data, and verify the new VIN in brackets. In the attached picture, you can see my Combox and Head Unit are showing two different VIN's.

Afterwards, either shut down E-Sys, or load your original FA back and activate it before coding anything else. DO NOT code anything else with this FA, and DO NOT write this FA to the car.

For Internet and BMW Live to work, you need a VIN with factory options 614 and 615.

Thats exactly why i got a hell of errors showing up. Just tried to code the different VIN in every module... my heart was bleeding as my car didnt start anymore :o
but now everything seems good again

thanks shawn!
i used "fs_lesen" and if there was anything, i used "fs_löschen" in every single file. later on i found the f01.prg thanks!!

i will try to code the vin to cmbmedia this time... do i have to remove the Salapa-Element for BMW Assist (S612A)?

if i try to code cmb_media -> 3006 TELEMATIK -> TELEMATIK_VIN to "CODING_VIN". The attached value switches to "01". At which point do i set the "CODING_VIN"?

or do i just set it to "CODING_VIN" and then do VO-Coding cmb_media with fake-VIN? Thanks man!

Yes. You CAN NOT have BMW Assist. If your Bluetooth is part of 612, you will need to replace 612 with 644. If your Bluetooth is another code, just delete 612.

Also make sure you have 614, 615, 6AB, and 6AL in your VO.

VO Code CMB_MEDA and HU_CIC afterwards.

I am not sure I understand what you did, but code TELEMATIK_VIN = CODING_VIN first, then load you FA with new FAKE VIN, activate it, read CMB_MEDIA, then just FDL Code it. Read it back and it should show the new VIN.

hey shawn,
thanks... i tried what you advised me to do i coded the following sa to my car: 614,615,6AB,6AL and finally replaced 633 with 644. all seems good now. i have the ability to get data via bluetooth phone. but i still have a problem coding the vin to cmb_media.

if i use a vin thats not my own, i always get a error (negative response, request out of range) and after i read out the cmb_media it shows a vin thats like "yyyyyyy". i guess there is a problem with the signature and thats why the device declines to write the vin. any idea on this?

thaaaanks

Thank you!

I will try it.

but the country VO $866 will have an impact?

my VO include:

609,614,615,616,620,644,654,676,6aa,6ab,6ak,6al,6a m,6ap,6ar,6fv,6nf,6nl,6nr,6va,6vb,6vc,7sp,866

Ok, and make sure on the last part you FDL Code CMD_MEDIA. If you mistakenly VO Code it, TELEMATIK_VIN will revert to MOST_VIN, and it will not take the new VIN.

I am not sure about 866. That is for Chinese Language, but it is not the same as a Country Controller code like one of the 8Lx codes (e.g. S8LHA Country controller for Hong Kong).
