It may just be limiting the bandwidth enough to cause problems there.

M5 f10 support needed

Also any interest in having the module open the windows if you hold down the remote, flash a light in the car to simulate an alarm, or stuff like that, one might normally do via coding?

Hi Terry. I realize this post is about a year old, however I am curious as to your conclusion with regards to adding the functionality of rolling down the windows with the key fob. Is this being added or not enough demand?

Thanks for a great product.

It would be great to have the option of turning off Active Sound with OEM exhaust flap operation! That's the only thing holding me back from buying.

Terry @ BMS 02-29-2016 07:54 PM

It was added to the latest firmware but you do need a bms data cable to load it.

It's not on the radar currently, sorry.

F13 supported yet?...

Terry @ BMS 03-09-2016 10:07 AM

No we don't have the exhaust flap CANbus commands for the F10 and related models.

Lowon 04-11-2016 11:31 PM

Hey Terry, will you guys add data logging to this module, plus gauges with jb4 mobile app for people who don't want a tune on their new car but still want logging an gauges? Also is there a "trade in" option. For example for those who don't want a tune for the time being could run this to control exhaust flaps, and when they're ready they could trade this unit in for some credit towards a jb4?

Terry @ BMS 04-12-2016 08:50 AM

No plans to do that at this time.

If you want to datalog on stock tuning use a JB4 but on map4 (stock tuning, CANbus logging active).

Yeah I know that would be a great option, but my dealer is really picky when it comes to checking connections on the sensors for signs of a piggy back. Sometimes they put this security tape strip like on electronics to ensure no tampering has happened. I just would like this option so when I get my m2 I can open the exhaust valves, and be able to have gauges and logging for about a year so I can get the car to about 10,000km before any serious tuning and mods happen, and I can ensure the car is working properly. Also for me 10,000km may take a little while maybe a year or so as the weather here isn't always good and I have 2 other daily drivers.

Terry @ BMS 04-12-2016 09:29 AM

What we offer is what we offer. Pick the option that best suites your specific needs.

Lowon 04-13-2016 09:57 AM

Ok Terry, I respect that. But hopefully you guys start making more exhausts as they honestly no joke sound fricken amazing.

Tc123 04-26-2016 02:44 AM

Can I clarify post 155? Was it active sound delete in oem flap operation that was added by the firmware update? Which option is that in the menu? Thanks!

Terry @ BMS 05-01-2016 01:11 PM

With the update posted active sound mute valves closed also applies to valves OEM. That selection is not in the production firmware and would have to be uploaded to the CT to enable.

Terry @ BMS 05-09-2016 12:27 PM

Real faults still show a light in dash with auto clear mode on.

Superfoig 05-12-2016 01:07 PM

Lowon has a point. Some people have flash tunes and have no real way to log. It'd be another selling point if the obd2 canbus module had logging capabilities just my 2cents.

Terry @ BMS 05-12-2016 01:22 PM

We could certainly do it but would not be able to sell it for $279 then as it's quite a bit of work. One option for you would be to buy an N55 EWG JB4 for $529 and then install TMAP and OBDII only to allow use of it as a logger / CANflap control only. But you're really better off just taking the extra 10 min to install a JB4 so you can adjust the tuning if you see something you don't like in the flash logs.

Superfoig 05-12-2016 02:32 PM

The thing Is already have a obd2 canbus module and my flash tune was a legitimate dyno tune for my setup, is it possible for those that want it to pay more for the feature?

Terry @ BMS 05-12-2016 02:34 PM

Sure but the economics are not great on that. Say it takes $8000 in engineering time to make the change. How do you divide that among the ~10-15 people who would want/use the feature? :)

Superfoig 05-12-2016 02:36 PM

Woaah it takes that much (hypothetically). I'm sure most flash tuners or users would like to opt for it in order to make sure the car is dialed in.

Lowon 05-12-2016 02:49 PM

Can I buy one too?

Terry @ BMS 05-12-2016 02:51 PM

I guess if you guys can get ~50 separate customers to post in here that they'd buy a CAN Tool (for $279) if it had logging included then we can work on that firmware for you. Obviously in addition to the CAN Tool you'd need a BMS DATA cable to connect to the device/laptop for the logging itself.

Superfoig 05-12-2016 02:59 PM

Can they post on bimmerpost? All the flash tuners are there n54tech is mainly full of jb4 users. Can we use the Bluetooth cable instead of the data cable? It makes this even cheaper than the p3car gauge which is another selling point.

Terry @ BMS 05-12-2016 03:40 PM

They'd have to post here. Not a bimmerpost fan. :)

Blue tooth adapter would be compatible.
