You are right but The software is customized to each region depending on local DOT approvals and requirements.
and some options might not appropriate or suite certain region....Si

Quick question regarding cable: I have a a programming cable but ends with USB instead of RJ45. Can we use the USB terminated cable instead of the RJ45?

Not a biggie since I also have the crimp tool to make an RJ45 terminated cable...

ShawnSheridan, let's see if we can get together next week!!!

Pardon my ignorance, but what is iBrake? I have ACC and not sure what that is. Is it the preset following distance (the stack of four horizontal bars in the ACC display)?

If i am not wrong the one you are referring to works with older generations/software our F10/ESys needs the new OBD2 to RJ45 cable.

Unless I am wrong, no one is actually writing new programming code. So here is the question, if all that is happening is that you are enabling functionality that already exists (or disabling it as the case may be), for God's sake, why doesn't BMW just make these features part of the settings that we have access to through the Idrive Nav screen. I mean, its not like we already can't change a million things...why not make it 2 million. Or would it make the car setup process just too confusing and overpowering for the average Joe? I can't see why BMW cares if we want to be able to push a button on our key fob and simultaneously lock the doors and fold the side view mirrors. Or show some specific information on the HUD, or whatever. If I am wrong and you all are actually writing new programming code, then I apologize. But that's not what it sounds like. It sounds like you are just inputing certain already existing commands to cause something different to happen than what is "hard wired" as a default.
No, you're not wrong.

As to why? I'm assuming it's a combination of different things. But I would say that the overriding reason is the litigious nature of the US. Things that might be enabled are disabled for "safety's' sake.

Any plans to post a spreadsheet that contains the relevant variables to code and the corresponding value? Or does this already reside somewhere?

Many thanks to shawnsheridian in my case to get started up. I'm based in NYC so more than happy to help anyone in the area once my system is up.

In that case we should wait for Sean... He might have better information.

@DreamCar; Good deal. Put that baby online (so people can find all my mistakes)!

@Itinj6; I believe with Active Cruise Control, a pre-defined distance to the vehicle ahead can be set as a number of seconds (reaction time), and my guess is the iBrake Distance Info would display that setting.

@ alex_c; That cable with the ODB-USB Port will likely work with some diagnostic applications / tools; however, for Coding in E-Sys, it has to be an RJ45 Network Connection with IP Assignment.

In general, weekdays are a bitch for me, but I have baseball playoffs pretty much everynight next week, which would make it impossible. I can probably do something Saturday or Sunday, although that may be a problem for jjsC6 and his motorcycle.

@alex_c,

I don't doubt that your cable says it will work with the F-series cars, and it will. The bad news is you're going to have to buy an ICOM for it to work, and even then in a very limitied capacity.

All the F-series vehicles (except 123d if I remember right) use E-Sys to program and the program expects to communicate using IP addresses. The cars have a pseudo DHCP server that issues an IP address to you computer, so our computers know how communication is going to occur. Now this connection can be done one of two ways but they are both IP address dependent. Either you use the ENET cable that most of us build and your NIC card does most of the translating through E-Sys, or your ICOM is issued the IP address and it does the translation through E-Sys but using it's interface. The D-CAN cable (I can't see yours perfectly, but it looks like that's what you have) will also only diagnose the F-series vehicles through an ICOM , clone or VM ICOM using IPNA.

The truth is we all need to get used to our vehicles using IP addresses as BMW and other car manufacturers switch over to the ASAM MCD-2D standard (Open Data eXchange). BMW even spent the time to port EDIABAS over to allow it to communicate via ENET, and that was so they could talk to the CIC in the E9X.

The other strange thing is the part number they are using. If it is a true BMW part number, then the cable you have should be a CIC Connecting Wire.

http://parts.bmwofsouthatlanta.com/p...119185171.html

My advice...contact the seller and request a refund, then build an ENET cable.

Dreamcar - Here's the I-Level worksheet. It shows what chassis code lines up with which data set (psdzdata). Can you add it to the first post? Thanks.

Sean

All right. 1,501 Views already. Just another 100,585, and we will be right up there with the **Consolidated RFT Failures/Issues Thread**

Shawn,

Shot you a PM about the DVD in motion coding on the spreadsheet, which by the way looks fantastic. No NETTODAT file coding necessary.

All I have to say is that is a list! Thanks for taking the time to look through all the modules. Has your family seen you lately or do you live in the garage now?

Sean

@ImSW1; Maybe it is just me, but the Integration Level Table while informative is confusing as it relates to E-Sys, as when I look at it, one would not know that to code an F12 in E-Sys, one would use the F10 psdzdata or to code an F30, one would use the F20 psdzdata. Maybe I'm just missing something.

Here is the simple narrative version:

F001 psdzdata covers the F01/F02/F04 7-series and F07 5-series
F010 psdzdata covers the F10 5-series and F12/F13 6-series
F020 psdzdata covers the F20 1-series and F30 3-series (There is no Z4 F-chassis yet)
F025 psdzdata covers the F25 X3-series (There is no X5 F-chassis yet).

I'm still getting some family time; just not much sleep since you sent me that damn Enet cable.

I'm going to try and scale it back for a bit though, and catch up on some stuff, and some Z's.

It's really not that expensive either. You can get a decent 10 ft patch for $6-$7, throw a OBD2 connector in there $4.99, an RJ-45 and a resistor $1.00 each (worst case) and maybe $5 in shipping getting it all to you and your cable cost you $18.99. Not a bad deal if you consider it would have cost you $100+ to activate DVD in motion.

Sean
any chance i can buy one off of you? paypal you money for a cable?

Guys:

I saw one item in the initial thread about "always remember air circulation".

Is there any way to set the air circulation on a timer? One thing that drives me bananas about this car is that if you put the air to recirculate, it won't turn off. Or is this what that means? I assumed it was for startup.

Seriously, if there is any way to have the circulation go off after, say, 10 minutes, that would be great!!!
