To all who used it: what's the consensus on the mirror folding? I read back through the thread and it seemed hit or miss, with no firm yes it works or no it doesn't.

Is this right ? You have to start the car before doing any change of settings and then pressing code ?

The app doesn't come with any instructions ....

I use these as a guide...they should be interchangeable for the most part...basically i search for something i want to change with these cheat sheets and then look in the Bimmercode app for the same script...if its the same, i feel confident in changing it. Whether it works or not will depend im assuming since the folding mirror coding took a few renditions from the developer before it actually worked.
Nice! I'm gathering all the equipment, info and mod items for my delivery in a couple of months...super excited. Thanks for this Dabozo. When I looked through the bimmercode app, I was wondering how you guys were deciphering the expert mode.

No need to start the car. Just turn the ignition on.

It works just fine. There are two variables involved for folding.

1) fold with comfort access/fob: on/off
2) closing sequence delay: in seconds

I set my delay to zero. Even with zero delay I still can close the doors without folding the mirrors if I want. To fold the mirrors you would just hold your finger on the door handle for a second more or keep the fob button pressed for a second more.

For unfolding you have two options:
1) unfold with unlock: yes/no
2) unfold speed threshold: in Km/Hr

I tried unfold with unlock and immediately disliked it because I often unlock the car without actually getting in to drive somewhere and then lock it back up which causes unnecessary unfolding and folding.

Instead I just lowered the unfolding speed threshold to the lowest possible speed which is 3 kilometers per hour and that works out great for me.

I'm in the UK, is there anyone who can code my car remotely?

I'm not confident to try this myself really, so I'd like to leave it to someone who knows what they're doing.

I want the following:

Disable headlight washer
Radio & Nav to switch off at door open
Activate current gear position indicator in all modes

And if possible:
Disable horn sounding when locking car from outside when engine running
Code LH mirror to drop down when reversing, then return back when reverse gear deselected. The Carly site says this can be done

You can disable the audible beep when locking the car without coding as follows:

1-Press both the lock and unlock buttons on your remote for two seconds.
2-Watch for the hazard lights to flash three times.
3-Lock the doors and confirm that the horn does not sound.

The mirror opposite to the drivers seat will dip automatically when reverse is selected by default however you have to have the mirror selector switch all the way to the left (or right I'm not sure) but the point is that it only works if the mirror selector switch on the drivers door is set all the way one way or the other.

www.codemycar.com does remote coding. I'm fairly certain it doesn't matter where you're located. Send them an inquiry.

At the risk of being ignorant, what's the meaning of "Read out parameter" that I see on a number of the settings?

But what about when you are reversing out of somewhere (parking)? Guess you are just using your monitor? Or does 3km/hr count if going in reverse?

I have mine set to no delay but i can see it getting annoying when going in and out of car just to retrieve something...

i wondered the same thing...wondered why no one else was asking for explanations of what each setting actually did! Some are self explanatory but others not so much...But after some quick searching around i discovered that these cheat sheets could be used for our cars as a general guide...

The value of the setting that has been read from your car (ie. active / currently used setting).

Haha...um...well I never pull in forward when I park. You can always just push the button on the door to unfold them in that scenario with this configuration. That's the beauty of coding. Everyone is different and there are several configurations.

You can code it with the app so the mirror folds when you lock the car and unfold when you unlock the car. You may need to mess with the "comfort access delay time" or whatever so that the mirrors fold instantly on unlock and not just when the lock button is held down... I forget. But mine fold down as soon as a lock it and unfold as soon as I unlock it.

It's great, I know it's locked just by looking at the car.

I am working on the ACSM module to disable seatbelt chime. I will release it as soon as it is stable

There is also an update waiting for review by apple. Should be ready within the next two days.

Excellent. My iCar2 got delivered today, so I may wait until the update is out to try this.

Nav issue

I am getting the following error on my display.
'connect usb device with correct activation code to start navigation'
I tried to restore the back ups but it didn't seem to fix the issue.

I called the 'geniuses' and BMW lol but they said I could not get the code from them and needed to take the car in.

Has anyone else seen this message or had this issue.

Please make sure there is zero possibility of disabling the air bags. That would not be good

Ouch...no clue and nothing turning up on Google search. Out of curiosity what were you coding? Were you making changes in expert mode?

Not using expert mode. But coded all the modules. However restoring the backups didn't fix
