I have done this exactly in the same way as others on the thread, and yet my MMI refuses to switch to the full BT menus. Argh.

So either:
  1. My March-05 FL MMI is somehow different and incapable of full BT display so it ignores the BT parameters I have written to it, or
  2. there is something I need to code to the new TCU, other than the VIN, that I have missed, or
  3. my changes to the VO (production date, replace $638 with $633) are wrong or need to be actually coded to the CAS/LMA.

Okay, that's it. I give up. I have tried everything but the MMI will not display anything other than the old on/off toggle for Bluetooth. I just have to conclude that my MMI must be some sort of half-FL unit that accepts the BLUETOOTH_HANDY and TEL_BLUETOOTH parameters but refuses to adjust the interface to the new TCU.

Do any of you who have a PORTABLE_BT parameter in your TCU trace?

I'll have to settle for being able to make and receive calls and forget about the phone book and call lists.

PORTABLE_BT is in TCUM unit
maybe you also need to change SA633_VERBAUT in NAVI unit

I will check those two. Feels like grasping at straws though.

The BT parameters in the MMI are coded right. I have compared with Stuart's settings; we have the exact same TCU and our MMIs are coded the same.

I know my MMI takes and accepts the BT parameters; it just acts differently than the others' on this thread. My only conclusion is that my MMI's firmware simply does not have the code for the Phone settings and pairing.

BMW likely updated the FW in the MMI starting Sep-06 when they switched to TCUs with the full Bluetooth stack. My MMI is from Feb 05 which makes it a very early FL. Can you compare this to your MMI?



Has anyone ever flashed one of these units with new firmware?

I have managed to code both the TCU and MMI with a simulated production date, to adapt them both to the current status of the car. The result is the same: the pairing I initiated from the phone still holds and I can make and receive calls, the keypad and handsfree work etc.

But I do not have the phone settings menu on the MMI, still just the old on/off toggle (which fell off the lower part of the video), and none of the items in the comms menu work:



So the MMI behaves as if it expects the old TCU.

This is what I did:
  1. Code VIN into TCU using Tool32
  2. Run NCS, load expertprofile.
  3. Load VO, remove old production date, insert #0307.
  4. Remove $638 option, add $633.
  5. Code TCU using SG_CODIEREN job. After coding is complete NCS shows it has used TCU15MOS.C12 and TELE60_3.PRG data. Fine.
  6. Code MMI using SG_CODIEREN job. After coding is complete NCS shows it has used MMI_E65.C03 data.
  7. MMI reboots in German language thereby confirming it has really been coded. No pairing or phone settings menus.


MMI trace file looks correct:

Any suggestions before I officially give up on the MMI menus and just feel happy about having phone calls working?
Can you post the trace of your TCU? When you go into the settings menu on your iPhone then General and then select Bluetooth. Under Devices you should see your your connection with the Bluetooth. Mine says BMW and the last 5 digits of my VIN. When you click on the arrow next to yours it will bring up a menu that allows you to turn on and off things like sync contacts, phone favorites and phone recents. Make sure yours are on. This would explain part of your issue, but not all.

You might also want to reset your MMI to factory (whatever is in your VO). There are instructions somewhere on this post/forum. I had some quirky issues that were resolved by resetting the MMI. Remember to have a backup of the old MMI trace before resetting it because you will lose all your changes, and will need to refer to the old MMI trace to know what to change back.

Good luck.

Jeff

Hey guys,

I really want to get this sorted out for politby! We have pretty much exhausted all known methods. I just checked a picture of my new MMI it was manufactured week 19 of 2006.

You may be right, the MMI may have an early software version that is not allowing the use of the Bluetooth function, it may be possible to set the options in the coding memory but the MMI application software ignores it. I have checked politby's nettodata that's been read back from the MMI and it does show the correct options being set for Bluetooth.

If it is indeed the software residing in the MMI then you have two options, either buy a second facelift MMI (pretty scarce at the moment) or flash the MMI with the latest firmware using WinKFP and V41 files.

I have done some experimenting with WinKFP (I had no choice!) I think the MMI firmware is approx 12MB the LM2 firmware was 500K and took around 2 mins to flash.

I can offer some assistance if you wish to flash the MMI, it's setting WinKFP up that is the tricky part!

Stuart

I will get the TCU trace tomorrow and post it here.

If the MMI can be flashed I'd be happy to try it if the risk of bricking it is not too great. Don't have a 70A power supply... where do I get the firmware from?

My MMI is hardware revision 00; I think Ace said his was 03. But I have seen pre-facelift MMIs with revision 02, so that must mean they started over at 00 when the facelift came out.

It's anybody's guess if my unit can run a later version of the software. I thought a certain coding index level meant a defined set of functionality, but as I have discovered my unit behaves differently than Stuarts, even with the exact same coding, despite both being FL MMIs on the C03 index level.

Not surprisingly, the folks at my local Bimmer dealership haven't a clue - but they would happily relieve me of ~$500 just to read the version number off my MMI...

Hi politby,

When I replaced my LM2 I tried flashing it, but during the flash the data transmission failed. This was due to incorrect com port settings. Lesson learnt! However the LM2 does not have masses of RAM available that it can temporarily store the EEPROM flash data, therefore you are writing the FLASH memory in real time, when the download failed it threw the new LM2 into fail safe as the memory was corrupted! just like my old LMA!

The unit was still recoverable and I have now successfully flashed with the latest software and coded to my car. The software is part of the 'data' folder in the dealer/progman installation. The E65 data folder is about 1.5GB but that includes software for every possible variant of each module, there are 20 or so different light module files.

I will look tonight for the latest file for your MMI based on the part number and info you posted on the INPA screen, it's possible for you to just install the MMI files into WinKFP which will make things easier.

I don't think you need a 70A supply. you could jump the car from another with its engine running. The major problem is the battery, you are advised to keep the vehicle system voltage up at around 13.5-14V the battery is consuming much of the 70A as you are charging the battery as you pull the voltage up. When I do this again I will remove the battery completely and run the car using jump leads to another car. I estimate with the ignition on the car should be pulling a max of 20A with the battery removed most other car alternators will be able to comfortably supply that. (my problem was the car I was using could not supply the current required to hold the voltage up due to the battery in the 7 consuming vast amounts of current).

I can't help wondering about this supposed power requirement. Let's say I have a fully charged battery rated at 70 Ah (pretty sure the BMW battery is bigger than that) and let's be more conservative and say it is not in great shape and can muster 50 Ah.

That's 50A of power draw for an hour. What is the idle draw of this car with nothing switched on? The biggest power user in the entire car is bound to be the Logic7 amp (excluding the starter obviously). Let's say everything is powered down during a flash of a module. What in h**l could then be drawing enough current to load the battery so much that the flash will fail because of a voltage drop?

I can't imagine these modules plus the OBD cable drawing more than a couple of amps at the most. To me this sounds more like BMW did not know what they were doing when they designed their system. For heaven's sake, we are talking about programming a bunch of flash EEPROMs, not a Boeing 747. Don't these modules have regulated power supplies?

HI

I`ve fit new unit today.

done mmi coding
done $633 fo VO CAS.LMA
tried change production date because my unit is from 07/08, car #0305(face lift) to #0808 but unfortunately NCS wont allow me to do this
What date I should to use??
Everything seems to work fine (MMI options ) apart pairing the phone
car refusing all pairing connections
DO I NEED TO DISCONNECT THE CRADLE IN CENTER CONSOLE?
cheers

There are set date codes for production runs, you cant choose any date code you wish. try 03/06, 09/06, 03/07, 09/07.

If NCS throws errors regarding other options simply delete the ones its not happy with. DO NOT write the edited VO to the CAS and LMA if you are doing date changes, its simply a dummy change to allow NCS to read and code the unit correctly.

I agree, the recommended PSU requirements are crazy. I managed to flash the LMA without the need for a PSU, however it was only a couple of minuets. Flashing other modules with much larger EEPROMS would take much longer and a PSU would be recommended.

The problem with the E65 is the power module, it learns the state of the battery and calculates the state of charge. this is roughly based on battery voltage. you can stick a charger on the car but if the voltage is still too low the power module will still cut the power.

This is NOT what you want when programming!

You are right, each module has its own bult in DC-DC power supply, most modules use siemens C167 or various motorolla micro controllers, all run at 5V DC. It must be that units are programmed to reset or shut down when the voltage gets too low and this interrupts programming. who knows?

next time im programming im disconnecting the battery and running the car from a separate supply (this will require less current and you wont need the recommended 70A PSU!!!).

INPA is expecting to find a TELE60_2 (your old TCU) while the new one is a TELE60_3. I suspect this is because it reads the VO and unless you have actually written a new VO to CAS and LMA there is no way to get INPA to know you have a new TCU.

I have the same issue. But I am ignoring it; anything INPA can do can be done using Tool32.

EDIT: You wrote the VO with the changed production date and $633 to the car, didn't you? So that does not explain why INPA will not read the TCU.

In both of our cases, maybe whatever makes INPA not realize there is a new TCU is also causing the MMI and TCU to not sync up. With the opposite symptoms, mind you, but still.

@Stuart, can you read your new TCU with INPA?

Thinking out loud, does anyone know if there is some kind of handshaking going on between the MMI and TCU to agree on their respective capabilities (sorta like HDMI in the A/V world) or does each module simply behave based on its coding?

tried change production date because my unit is from 07/08, car #0305(face lift) to #0808 but unfortunately NCS wont allow me to do this
What date I should to use??
Everything seems to work fine (MMI options ) apart pairing the phone
car refusing all pairing connections
DO I NEED TO DISCONNECT THE CRADLE IN CENTER CONSOLE?
cheers


Your car has the same production date as mine, yet we have the opposite problem: Your MMI shows the pairing menu but you cannot pair. Mine pairs (initiated by phone) but the MMI does not show the new BT options...

What is the date of your MMI? Can you read it with INPA and post a screenshot of the details?

BTW did you try pairing from the phone?

Come to think of it, my center console cradle is still plugged in. That can't be it, can it?

Yes. NCS is not using the correct coding index, it wants to use C02 while yours seems to be 22. You can have NCS read the index from the unit. There is a job in the NCS job list (F2) called CODIERINDEX_LESEN in German. Hit F2, select this job (I guess READ_CODEINDEX or something similar), run that job and NCS will pick up the correct index and data files for the unit. You can then code without NCS throwing errors.

Interesting. Same hardware number (does that mean identical hardware?) but the part numbers are completely different. Yours was manufactured a week later than mine, probably means nothing.

BUT yours is coding index 4 while mine is 3, and you have a later version of the application software (6.166.0 vs 6.150.51). Maybe that software version is what makes your unit index 4 and maybe that is why I do not get the "Phone" settings and pairing menu - could be it requires index 4.

I just got a glimmer of hope - if we have the same hardware, maybe I CAN flash to the later version and get the Bluetooth menus.

Er... that's what I explained in post 387.

To change the VIN in Tool32, load the TELE60_3.PRG file and select the fg_schreiben function, in the arguments box put your 18 digit VIN then hit the process once button at the top. should say job processed OK. then double click fg_lesen to see if its taken the new VIN (only last 7 digits will show excluding the check digit). Thanks Stuart for these instructions
