LA/OC/SB Area F30 Coding Meet: Sunday, February 17th, 2013

We'll be doing another LA area F30 coding meet on Sunday, February 17th, 2013 around 10:00.

The coding meet will be held here:

https://maps.google.com/maps?q=33.721831,+-117.793966

This is in the Best Buy parking lot off of Jamboree and El Camino Real. There's lots of space and it wasn't busy at all last time we did it there.

If you are interested in attending, please post a message here.

Here is the current checklist of the things that can be coded on your F30:

I'll be down to attend just to practice taking pictures.
Also, anybody figure out how to keep 'RANDOM' on when playing music and start the car in 'SPORTS' mode?

Unfortunately, no to both.

Random is remembered when playing from USB sticks, but not from stuff loaded on the HDD.

Defaulting to Sports mode is the holy grail of coding, but no luck yet.

OC is a stretch for me as it is, as I live in Ventura County. Lets see how many people are interested.

Thanks for driving so far south, OC is a good halfway point then.
I have a new 2013, and wanted to know how I check the firmware version on the car to see if we can code it. Do you know where to look it up?

I'm down for Los Angeles.

I'm not too familiar with "coding." What can you do with it? Who will be doing the coding? Will it cost money?

Is it possible to allow DVD video playback while driving?

Thanks!

See this thread for details about what coding is:
http://www.f30post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=696777
(Yes, coding can enable DVD playback while driving)

Here is the thread from the last session we did:
http://www.f30post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=786618

You do the coding; I provide the cable and laptop and show you how to do it.

I do this for the community and don't charge anything as you do the work.

The coding sessions end up also turning into a fun meet for people to compare cars and modifications.

I would love to do another OC meet up! I am flying back into SNA around 11am though so by the time I got up there it might be too late...I'll keep an eye on this thread to see what the final consensus is though...

You know, there's a target next to Brea Mall that has a nice indoor parking garage. That target is only about a year and a half old so everything looks really new. Maybe consider that location also?

Ok, it looks like OC has the majority of interest.

So how about here:

https://maps.google.com/maps?q=33.721831,+-117.793966

This is in the Best Buy parking lot off of Jamboree and El Camino Real. There's lots of space and it wasn't busy at all last time we did it there.

I'll update the original post with this info.

Is 10:00 still a good starting time?

Hey, did you get your car back from Service yet?

Did they clear your codings?

10 on Sunday works great for me.
Is there a place I can buy you lunch after?

Great!

I don't know the area either, we'll have to look around.

Maybe we'll have some locals with us to pick a place.
