6nh to 6ns help please

Good evening all.

I have a November 2013 318d F30 M-sport

I have been doing a bit of reading into activating enhanced Bluetooth (6ns?) I have been on BMW archive and checked my options which are S6NHA S606A. I have asked at BMW if I can code to 6NS but they say I dont have a combox and all the telephone functions go direct through the headunit so there is no option to code. Is this correct or can I code the function in myself. I'm pretty confident in doing it as I have tinkered with phones , computers etc in the past but I like to do as much research as possible before buying cables and software etc. Any help would be greatly appreciated

Thanks

Dave

If you do not have a Combox, then it depends on the Head Unit you have. If car has NBT Head Unit, or ENTRYNAV Head Unit, then you can code 6NS EBT as these head units have Combox functions integrated into them.

Read SVT with E-Sys, and it will show HU_xxx. What does it show?

Sorry didn't explained that bit. I haven't brought a cable or download any software yet, I was just looking to see if it's possible. For the sake of 10 for a cable I'll now get one and have a look, once my cable arrives can you point me in the right direction for software and then where to look on software for my head unit model.

Thanks for your help so far

Dave

PM sent.

Connect => Read FA (VO) => Activate FA (VO) => Read SVT (VCM).

In your SVT, you will see a list of all ECU's. One will begin with HU.

Yes, they work. I have two of them made by someone else though.

Sound. I'll get one ordered, I've got loads of CAT5 cable already so just got software to dl and install then I'm away?!? Is there a limit to what you can code depending on vehicle level, meaning I do all this then find out I can't code anything?

Great, so you can make 40 foot Cat-5 Cable, and code the car from your couch.

Some functions, not many, are only available with a minimum ECU firmware level, so in those cases, I-Step of car would have to be high enough.

You are limited d too of course by the hardware. Some of what works in newer NBT Head Unit is not codeable in older CIC Head Unit for example.

Yeah I'm hoping to code from the kitchen so once all is assembled and installed I can plug in and see what hardware I have then see what I can code. I'm interested in enhanced Bluetooth, changing BMW logo to msport and I'm sure I read somewhere you can activate a speed limiter using cruises controls??

I thought LIM function was standard in ECE cars.

I'm not sure about F30, but for F10, it is explained here:

All software installed seemed to go fine. Just waiting for obd2 connection to arrive then I'm ready to go. Only thing I noticed was I couldn't see F30 on the psdata file list?
