Is anyone able to display music information in the HUD, e.g. radio channels?

What kind of a PC is required? Can it be done with Windows 7?

I have an old laptop somewhere with 32bit Windows 7. Any previous coding experience required?

I don't think you really need coding experience.. Basically you gotta follow same flow every time/every modification... there are some good docs with step by step instructions..

If you could wait for one more week we will have more detailed instructions here! or you can start now get help from folks as you move.

@StealthPilot; I am running on Win7 64, and it works fine. There is an EDIABAS Enet connection utility, ZGW_SEARCH.exe, that confirms the connection between the PC and the Car that does not work well or at all in Win7 64; however, it is informative only and not a requirement for E-Sys.

As for coding experience; none is required. I never coded before, and I had no problem understanding the Getting Started tutorial. People who have coded the E-Series cars using the old tools like NCS Expert expert, etc., claim E-Sys by comparison is much simpler.

Torrent - try renaming the attachment to .torrent and opening it with your client. This will go a lot quicker if lots of festers torrent it.... may take days to get it spread around, may never happen if only a couple folks reseed....

First off...this is awesome! I will be trying this out very soon. I love being a programmer so I can do stuff like this.

Second...anyone have ideas on if/how we can code to enable the BMW Live functionality to get features like Internet Browser, Google Street View? Some people are already able to enable it through coding like the folks at BimmerTech, so I am assuming it is possible.

@bmwcranium; Yes, BMW Live (Internet) can be done; but it isn't as simple other coding. The Vehicle Order (VO) needs to be changed to add SA 614 Internet, BMW Assist option SA612 has to be removed, and a "working" foreign VIN needs to be coded into the Combox to deceive the BMW Live Portal Servers into thinking the car is located in a BMW Live supported country (e.g. Europe, the U.K., etc.). Considering you loose BMW Assist and that BMW Live uses a 2G Edge Data connection (which is very slow), not to mention a lack of Flash and Java Support, I personally do not think its worth enabling.

@hans_gregor; It is everything (E-Sys, ISTA/P psdzdata files, Installation Instructions, and E-Sys Getting Started Coding Guide) needed to code one's car except the enet cable.

FYI. I did some more testing, and it turns out that the extra Efficient Dynamics Screens came from enabling EFF_DYN_SYS_CID and not EFF_DYN_SPORT_CID. On my My2011 F10, without ECO PRO, this added EfficientDynamics INFO to the Vehicle Info=> Efficient Dynamics screen (e.g. Climate and Battery animations)); however; the Consumption History still lacks the Histogram and ECO PRO Tips is greyed out. It also added "Configure ECO PRO" to the Settings=>Driving mode screen; however, since there is no actual ECO PRO Functionality, as it is not part of the MY 2011 Dynamic Driving Control, the "Configure ECO PRO" is nonfunctional.

As for EFF_DYN_SPORT_UNIT, I went back and recoded it, and still while it added "Power" and "Torque" to the Settings=>Language/Units screen for use with EFF_DYN_SPORT_CID; the Power choices between kW, and hp and Torque choices between Nm, ft lb, and Kg/m, can not be set. It's somehow locked out on mine. Mine is set to aktiv / Werte=01. If someone else has this working in hp and ft lb, please advise exactly how this is set.

Also, for those enabling the Turn Signals in the HUD, after coding both HUD_TURNSIGNAL and BLINKER_HUD_ENABLE, you must enable the "Turn indicator" Checkbox in Settings=>Heads-Up Display for it to work.

@DreamCar; So I take it you had no problems with the Installation Instructions or using E-Sys to code? FYI. I will be sending you an updated Excel version of the Coding lists with some corrections / clarifications some time late tonight.

I activated MDrive 1 and MDrive 2 menus. Do they work ? I didn't notice any difference. It's only for M models?

Looks there are many features which are not applicable ... I would be pleasantly surprised if they ate available ... Did you work on speed limit info ? Or M cluster ? Those Seems to be promising ..

@DreamCar; Good luck on the M HUD! As for Speed Limit Info, enabling both Speed Limit Parameters won't work, as the car has to be equipped with a camera fitted to the rear-view mirror that permanently monitors speed limits, both on signs by the roadside and above the carriageway.

@hans_gregor; Enabling MDRIVE:

Adds "M Drive 1" & "M Drive 2" on Settings screen; however, DSC, Engine, Chassis, and Steering settings can not be set - Nonfunctional. It also adds "M dynamic driving syst." checkbox on Settings=>Info Display screen. When checked it completely turns off the dashboard tachometer Efficient Dynamics display. - Nonfunctional

Shawn,

I was hoping that it may work like my Garmin which shows preloaded speed limits...Guess who is greedy!

@DreamCar; Can you confirm on your car that with FRM /3050/NSW_AUS_BEI_FL enabled, your fog lights stay on with High Beams? It works on mine, but someone else said it didn't.

Also, assuming you have ECO Pro, can you test KOMBI/3003 FZG_Ausstattung / SPA_ENABLE, which is supposed to enable a gear shift indicator? It didn't seem to do anything on my MY2011 car without ECO PRO; however, it may only work in the ECO PRO mode to get an indicator to get into the next gear.
