Is it possible to disable the gauge sweep on engine start?
It looks cheap on the new LCI black panel gauges, because the displays refresh rate is too low to make the sweep look nice.
Maybe in a future firmware, an option to disable it via the OBD menu?

Hi have 3 times ask. First question are the settings on page 1 still up to date or are there new ones? Second question I drive in Germany gasoline with 102 octane, I can thus map 2 and map 3 drive without further settings? Question three the Jb4 becomes active only when the engine is warm or?

Yes the info on the first post is up to date.
Map 2-3 should be fine for you.

Gute Morgen,

1. Das JB4 system aktiv nur wenn das Motor warm ist.
2. 100 Benzine in der Schweiz oder Deutschland ist gleich 93 Octane vom USA, deshalb Map 2 is mŲglich.

Mike says its possible. I am no expert. I just look at it in terms of performance vs risk and think your not getting much more at Map 3 than Map 2 and taking on a lot more risk of problems with a stock car.

OK, I do not understand that now. I thought map 3 is for stock cars. Why should that be risk now?

I thought from your profile you had an N55, ie different engine but I see a post where you declare ownership of an M240i.

Map3 is suitable for a stock car on good quality fuel like RON 102. Might even be OK with map5. Log it if you want us to double check.

Thanks for the answer .. Logging is currently difficult because of thin winter tires and minus grade outside .. But as soon as the summer tires are on it I will log

Cool, looking forward to it. Does this make the exhaust louder only at cold start or throughout?

It lets you adjust the exhaust flap control via the BC button (and soon via the app directly).

Just posted a B58 update and could use a few logs to ensure its working as it should be.

BMW_B48_B58_OBDII_9:

1) Redesigned CANbus logging engine for faster sample speed and all available parameters including cyl1-6 timing, water, oil, and trans temp, full time.
2) Corrected speedo calibration issue when using in dash menu.
3) Added FutureUseD Bit4 option to disable startup sweep.
4) Added in dash timing and AFR gauges under menu 2/3 and 2/4 respectively.

Great to see, that you are continuously improving the JB4!

Just installed the update and here is my quick feedback:

1) Reading codes via the JB4 app is no longer working. It just says "Read failed"
2) disabling the startup sweep works
3) New firmware runs less smooth for me, with the same settings that were good on v8. A lot of throttle closures below 3500 rpms in Map1 and Map2 and boost is lower than in previous firmware version.
4) Attached some logs (v8 and v9) with the same setting that worked fine in v8 and also the default settings

5) went back to old firmware for now

2018 430i (B48), completely stock, 102 RON fuel, FF and EWG wires

There are no tuning differences between the firmware. Your logs seem normal to me.

On the code reading that could be a bug, I'll check it out!
