Most likely it would not work. ENET cable is specific to BMW

Pinouts for ScanGauge cable

I checked the pinouts for the ScanGauge cable.

Looking at the OBD2 connector, with the larger side on your left and the CAT6 cable with the contacts "up" as you look at it, here is the pinouts:


08 blank 16 blank
07 4 15 5
06 blank 14 blank
05 1 13 blank
04 1 12 blank
03 2 11 3
02 6 10 7
01 blank 09 8

I hope this helps someone.
Anything else I can do, just ask...

Compare it with the "build your own cable" specs

I agree.
After checking the pinouts and comparing it to the pictures in the first post, its not the same.
Nice Try...

Guess its either Lithuania or a awesome user to build me one for a cost. Rather have it done in US - cheaper and don't want to potentially wait 3 weeks for delivery from Lithuania.

I've already ordered the OBD port connector, and as soon as it arrives, I'll be building one myself. From there, depending on my results and time involved, I may offer to build them for others...

Hud

Has anyone used this to re-program the HUD yet? I'm a big lover of that head up display (note, it's not "heads up" ;-) ... but the information on it is limited, I mean speed (+cruise) and routing mainly when driving ... would LOVE to have the current gear displayed on there.

Looks like (from the videos on the other link) they updated to include turn indications, so would love to hear some feedback from anyone who dared try this :-)

I've been following this thread pretty close. I see a lot of comments, but no one has definitly stated they have actually been able to recode their F25.
I'm very interested in learning the process. If someone with the expertise is willing to work with me, I'd be willing to compensate them for there trouble. I have some coding experience, as I have the necessary hardware and software to reprogram LS1 and LT1 GM ECMs.
I'm in Las Vegas, and look forward to someone taking me up on my offer. PM me if interested.
Thanks...

I'm having trouble finding and downloading the software. I too have the parts on the way to build a cable.

Just as soon as I have a cable.

I don't have the skillset to make one - and not sure I want to spend the money to have one shipped from Lithuania.

Anyone have the parts to build me one in the states? (now...) LOL

JonathonArcher, would you be willing to share the software package with me as well? I have a rapidshare acct.

Thanks!

A member called Shallowtail posted over there that he has an F25 X3 and coded with success... I purchased the cable 2 weeks ago from codecard like several of the F10 forum, sadly my cable hasn't yet arrived, but people over there is saying that their cable worked with no issues. The waiting time for you guys: US/CANADA is 9 days, as I'm located in Guatemala I'm looking at a 4 week wait.

When my cable arrives I'll let you know how it goes...... I need to be patient

It sounds like you've got it figured out... Any chance of helping me with my 2013 X3 35i?
I'm interested in learning the E-Sys program. If interested in helping PM me.
Thanks

Thumbs up X3 Recoding.

Using ShawnSheridan's F10 CheatSheet, I have been able to recode my 2013 X3 35i.
I can successfully close the mirrors from the fob and door handles, have set the auto start/stop to default OFF and close the tailgate from the fob.
I know its not a big deal, but for someone thats new to all this, as I am, its a word of encouragement.
I'd like to thank ShawnSheridan and JonathanArcher for helping me get er done.
THANKS
