On IOS only when you click view on logs it shows blank screen, if you close and open the app few times and try it works after, this been for a while not only on recent version so not sure the real cause but worth to look at if others having the same.

Just curious.
I'll look into raising that limit.

So just installed the connect, if the engine is on it works perfectly, as soon as the engine is off the app cannot find the JB4, any ideas on what to try?

I’ve tried restarting app, turning car on and off.

Frustrating as the main reason for the purchase was to update firmware and you need the engine off...

E92 335i N54 2007 UK

Jb4 firmware: 27/15//2

IOS 11.3
iPhone 7

I’m putting the key in so that all the dash lights and i-drive turn on.

I am not able to use he jb4 steering wheel commands either until the engine is on.

If the steering wheel controls don't work then you're either not turning the ign on properly or you have an install issue. I'd email BMS support for more help on this or post in the support section.

Figured I'd post here because the support email is taking days.

It takes up to a dozen tries to connect. Turned on Auto connect, retry to connect a few times, close & reopen app, start over. Have tried this w/ the phone next to the device & in the car but it makes no difference. Hit or miss every time. Is there anything else to try?

It's worth it, sometimes there are new updates for android or IOS in which Donnie will have to accommodate with the JB4 app as well. It takes time, but I haven't had an issue with connecting to any device.

iOS only experiences a connection issue if the BT radio needs to be reset, the kit is too close to a battery, or there is a hardware problem with the kit (if this is the issue I'll replace the kit).

Android connection issues are virtually completely worked out in the current beta so it is basically comparable to iOS at this point.

I rarely get on the forums now as most of my time is spent in development and handling email support. Anyone who needs help with anything JB4 Mobile related please email support@jb4connectkit.com.

The App Build can be found in the Read Only section of the app. If you aren't on the beta, here is a link: https://play.google.com/apps/testing...o91.jb4_mobile



I've started the next round of public releases. Below is the changelog:
Android:
BT connection code overhaul.

Connection type and engine type selections removed. This is now handled automatically so just hit the Connect button and go.

OTG connections are automatically used whenever a BMS Data Cable is detected. This can be disabled (for those who only use a Connect Kit) in the settings page.

Gauge Selector workaround for Note 3 devices on 5.0.

Tons of bug fixes and usability updates.

Auto-Connect changes.

iOS:
Connection type and engine type selections removed. This is now handled automatically so just hit the Connect button and go.

Minor bug fixes.


Regarding the giveaway I mentioned a few weeks ago, I'll be giving away a new Rev 3.6 Connect Kit along with a redeem code for iOS or Android. Still working on how to do the actual giveaway so stay tuned.

Interface version on App Read only is A239

Also i can leave the app open and it will not shut off if it is not connected. once connected is where i get the app crashes

Try emailing Donnie for the fastest support. He doesn't always check the forums.
