Bimmer Utility Very good.
I updated the version today.
v1.0.35 Release Notes

--Updated mapping to 4.35.21
--Allow to save FA file to different file name in FA editor.
--Display file name in FDL editor.
--Cheat editor can now accept NCD files.
--Changed cheat code trigger from dropdown to checkbox.
--Allow drag and drop of ncd / cafd files into cheat editor.

I tried it right away.
I found a little bug.


(1)
The file name is displayed in the FDL editor.
but,
For example, if you drag and drop KOMBI's CAF directly from the folder after modifying the BCO's CAF.
The display of the file name does not change.
The selection from the MY file is displayed correctly.

(2)
If you select "00,0A" etc. in the cheat code editor, the code will not be reflected.
It works when numbers such as "0A" and "01" are used alone.

I like Bimmer Utility because it's convenient.
Since it is a separate system, there are no runtime errors like Esys Launcher, which is very convenient.
I posted it because I wanted it to be improved.

Also, BImmerFest has no discussion about Bimmer Utility, so I posted it.

However, it is convenient to be able to use it on a sub PC like the new tokenmaster Launcher V5.
Ideal for temporary use in the event of a failure of the main PC.

It would be nice if the Bimmer utility could be used on other PCs with a password. (Like a cloud system)

I have been using for 3 months, including Prerelease Beta Testing. It's very good, and keeps getting better, Updates are frequent, and it includes latest CAFD mapping.

That's right.
BU supports the latest CAF and is updated frequently.
I like it even if it has bugs.
I like it so I wrote it because it was improved.

I'm a BMW Motorrad CAF, does the car have the above symptoms?

Is there any of the above problems with the CAF of a car?
I have not checked.

Per BU support. both of those issues fixed and will be in the next update. A temp solution for the moment to fix the cheat code issue is to remove the comma ("000A" instead of "00,0A") it'll start working.

Been using it since it was released publicly and it just gets better and better, reported bugs and mapping updates are dealt with swiftly and new feature requests have been implemented quickly as well. I really like it and run it alongside EsysX, I am finding myself using EsysX less and less now though.

I have used it with E-sys to successfully code the retrofitted cruise button to my F20 116i sport.

However I am having two problems trying to read DTCs. In fact the only option I can choose in the left hand menu, is Help.

1) The Youtube videos are very poor quality and the text is unreadable but I have followed the instructions as best I can.

2) When I contact them from the website, the colour choice of blue text on light grey is also unreadable.
(tried 2 laptops, and no speed issues with my 78Mb/s fibre connection.)

Hopefully they will look into these issues.

BU Light Mode is unreadable? :unsure:'

Sorry, normal use is fine. It's when trying to contact support - see image.

But still can't read the DTCs - just get a No Data message when it tries to retrieve them, and I have made sure E-sys is disconnected.

I have found a low cost (£69) hand held code reader that works and diagnosed my air con problem.

Ok, I spoke with Support, they say they will adjust contact page and dig into DTC issue.
