Wink Universal Remote Control - Programming !!!

Ok, folks, here is my first contribution to the X5 forum;

If anyone is trying to set up their Universal Remote Control and has become frustrated, this video is the answer;

Basically, what the manual omits, is to tell you that once the button you are trying to program, responds to your current garage door opener, you then have to proceed - to push the "learn" button on your garage door motor head unit, and then press the button you are trying to program the stated 3 times. This small step is MISSING () in the Owners Manual and even on a DIY Video I saw from BMW North America.

Good Luck Everyone !!!

There's also specific instructions for multiple GDOs (garage door openers) brands from the Homelink's website. This may come in handy for those that have remote gate openers as well as GDOs they need to program:
