Default 3rd Party JB4 Interface (iOS, Android, OS X) - 10-11-2013, 05:28 PM

Note BMS now also stocks the REV3 kit! Get it direct from me or from BMS via this site: http://www.burgertuning.com/bluetoot...nnect_kit.html

*Install Info:
Click Here

*User Guide/Troubleshooting:
Click Here

This will now be the thread for all of my JB4 based apps. These include JB4 for OS X, JB4 Mobile for iOS, and JB4 Mobile for Android.

Big thanks to MasterWang for all his hard work on the graphics. And another thanks to sirdaft1 and BMW Fanatic for the cool product videos below.

All support requests must include the following or they may be ignored:
Device: Example iPhone 5S or Galaxy S4
OS: Example 7.0.1(iOS) or 4.4.2(Android)
Engine type: Example N54 E Series
App build: Example 3281 or A026
Kit Revision: Example Rev 3 or Rev 2
JB4 Firmware Version: Example 32_2b
Problem experienced:



*******JB4 Mobile (iOS and Android)*******

All Rev 3 users MUST select Rev 3 from the connection type menu BEFORE attempting to connect.







*JB4 Connect Kit Store Link
JB4ConnectKit.com

Stock status: Available now!

Price: $140 + shipping (iOS/Android app NOT included)

Available from Burger Motorsports here.

Available from JB4ConnectKit.com here.

Domestic shipping: $12
International shipping: $63.50. I only ship via USPS Priority Express due to the included tracking/insurance.

App purchases only valid for the device family they were purchased on. For example, if you buy the iOS app and decide to switch to Android later, you will need to purchase the app on that platform.

*How To Connect:
iOS - Requires my JB4 Connect Kit. Note that most newer iOS devices support Bluetooth Low Energy, but use this link to double check. iOS device List

Android - Can connect with an OTG cable or my JB4 Connect Kit. Note that not all Android devices are either OTG compatible or Bluetooth Low Energy compatible. It is up to you, the user, to find out if your device supports either OTG or Bluetooth Low Energy. Android users using my JB4 Connect Kit must realize that the Android Bluetooth Low Energy implementation is still not up to par with iOS's. Due to this, Android users may need to restart their device to be able to connect to my kit. This is not a problem with my kit, but rather an issue with Android's Bluetooth 4.0 implementation. Hopefully they will pay more attention to Bluetooth 4.0 in the near future.

*Price:
$27.99 (JB4 Connect Kit not included)

*What's Included:
The JB4 Mobile app.

*How To Get It:





*Features:
Live Data Monitoring
Data Logging (log files are fully compatible with JB4 windows software)

Methanol Adjustment (includes meth priming)
Firmware Flashing (update the JB4 through the app)
GPS Speedometer
G Force meter
Shift Indicator
Max Boost recall

*Known Bugs:
Sometimes the app will say "Connected", but no data appears to be coming through. Simply do a code reading to restart the stream.

*Upcoming updates:
0-60 reimplementation.


*Warranty:
Each JB4 Connect Kit comes with a 30 day exchange only warranty. The warranty only covers defects in manufacturing and begins when the kit is delivered.

*Videos:

Here are a couple installation photos for non-N54 vehicles including E series N55 and all F series. The power wire connects to the 5v power wire within the JB4 harness.

It can be done on the outside of the enclosure or if you prefer inside the enclosure.

Yep. Right now I'm still in the very early stages, but I do have successful logging of the data from the JB4 to the mac app (should be fairly straightforward for the iPhone once I get my wireless adapters in).

I will be trying these $20 wireless adapters I found on eBay as well when they arrive in a week-ish. So maybe this would be a cost effective option.

I have the serial communication all worked out now. (finally)

I figure for the iPhone interface 3 gauges would be about all you could fit on the screen and make it look nice.

Do you all have any interest in this?
I would, especially if one of the gauges can read our Oil Temps on our 5 series

Keep up the good work and keep us posted on your progress

I find that my windows jb4 VM runs nearly as fast as it would on bare metal. Are you running out of memory / swapping?
