The race only feature is under the ethanol settings on the WMI page, called passive delete, and is not blocked in Canada. If you need additional assistance on it just email in.

I have checked the WMI page on the app and the option for passive delete is activated... The only thing I can think of is that the app is detecting me as within the US and I'm definitely not.

Is there a way to change the country via the app? Don't want to get a new laptop just to do this! Damn these regulations are annoying

Would you still be compliant if the jb4 and interface were sold compliant but the user could disable the restrictions at their own risk?

Until laws are changed that provides BMS no protection should a random customer decide to misuse a product.

Will this affect my auto tunning on map 5 on my JB4? After the update it's now showing both c-less d p codes. Will this throw anything off or potentially put the car in safe mode??

Default Canadian customer looking to enable autoclear - 09-06-2017, 04:11 PM

HI,
I recently installed the jb4 with Bluetooth quick connect. I updated the firmware and would like to be able to enable this feature. Would you be able to send me the details on how to do this?

If the option is not showing on the WMI page under "passive delete" in Canada for you just contact the JB4 Mobile guys for help on that.

Did you guys happen to come across a solution for this? Just opened the JB4 app on my PC and noticed it seems to think I'm in the USA even though I'm in Canada.

I've e-mailed in and am just waiting for a response.

So when you enable or check passive delete option in the interface, the in dash option for autoclear is still uesless correct? It is enabled and disabled only via the jb4 interface only?

I have always had this option off in the event I get a cel I wouldn't be able to see the code.
Does having autoclear off affect performance?

Via interface only for passive delete. The in dash option is for one time delete only.

F the EPA. F CARB. Really unhappy to see BMS having to make these changes.

Wait WTH, so BMS would willfully give up private customer information? Very disappointing. If it's a government agency with a warrant, then ok you may be forced to (if you're willing to overlook principles of your own privacy and customer privacy for the sake of your business) ... but you'd also roll over and give it to BMW, and just "whomever" requests it? Did this happen just in '14 with CARB, or is again or ongoing?

Exactly what "personal information" is the JB4 collecting for BMS? And for what purpose? Even just VIN is enough to identify the owner, obviously - and if you're also collecting geogr location, date/time, etc. without express knowledge/consent of customers, that's something I think all customers would want to know.

Come to think of it - I noticed JB4 now has a place to list your exact mods ... hmm, not sure I like the picture that this is painting for what direction BMS is heading with data collection, or could potentially give up to another entity.

We do not store customer information nor would we ever release any customer information without a subpoena.

No one likes compliance but it's a necessary part of any successful business. Minor changes like this not only protect us but also our customers.

Jesus.

There's nothing nefarious about the information JB or the mobile app stores - the "mod" section is to assist with troubleshooting.

If you're worried about third-party having access to personal information, you better throw your smart phone in the bin.

Exactly. Plus the car knows everything anyway. Every car built since the late 90's has a blackbox in it. BMW knows all and if subpoenaed, they can tell all.

MHD and other flash software has to store your VIN to authenticate your car and flashing license. e.g. make sure you've paid, since they are not stand alone removable devices like the JB4. The JB4 of course does not store your VIN. It's only read when logging and placed in log exports so if you decide to email those logs in we can match them up to the same car.
