Don't think it works for F series yet. Only fault readings.

As far as I can tell, it does not work. I think they are supposedly working on F30s.... taking a while apparently.

I have dabbled with the lite version and I ended up getting the Carly adapter to get it to work. It's still not done, its supposed to be able to Code some F30 stuff, but it said it couldn't on my 2015, find any support ECU's. I don't really need Coding but rather data logging.

Latest version of Carly for BMW Pro (full paid version) with Gen 2 bluetooth adapter enables coding for F-chassis, but only on a limited number of ECUs at present. It does have a "parameters" feature that will show you realtime readings for selected functions, but I'm not sure if there's a way to record. Pretty sure the Lite version will not allow coding or logging; mainly just reading and clearing fault codes, etc.

I've tried it. Pretty bullshit hardware to software pairing, They don't work well. You have to keep trying to pair it for like a million times. Waste of money n time.

That's strange...mine pairs up right away. Must be your device. Or user error. I've been using it successfully on Android since it was BMWhat.

Might be. It says the connection transfer rate is not good enough to perform coding... Bluetooth transfer rate is always the same unless it's far away.. I don't know what to make out of that error.

If you look at the settings in Carly, it allows you to change the communication speed and other related items - at least, it does in the Android version. Have you contacted their support team about your problem? They may be able to shed some light on things. I use mine on a tablet, which may be a little more stable than a phone, but it does allow you to "tune" the communication parameters to suit your device.

I see there is a faster Wifi Carly OBD adapter on Amazon with good reviews. I want to hear from you guys though that you were able to code your F30 successfully before I buy the app and adapter. As a newbie to coding this seems easier than using a PC laptop.
