Begginer's guide to BMW Live and Internet

I have been collecting various bits of information (Mostly from Shawn Sheridan's work) to make a step by step beginner friendly (For myself - I have done FDL coding but that is all so far) guide to activate BMW live and internet over phone's SIM card.

I was hoping one of the more experienced coders could look at this and verify that I have the correct sequence and details the write up and verify that it is correct???

** I AM NOT SURE IF I HAVE EVERYTHING IN THE CORRECT SEQUENCE AND DETAIL LEVEL. USE AT OWN RISK **

Step by step procedure on how to enable BMW live and internet:


1. Change your VO as follows (This adds the options for BMW live and internet to the car's option list):

Connect => Read FA (VO)=> Edit FA (VO)=> Right click on FA => Calculate FP => Expand FA => click on SALAPA-element =>Delete/add FA from the bottom left window (see below) => click Apply changes => Right click on FA => Calculate FP => Save FA => Goto Expert mode => VCM => Load saved FA (VO)=> Right click on FA => Calculate FP => click "write FA FP VIN"

- 612 (or 633 or 639 if present)
+ 644 <- Bluetooth phone preparation
+ 614 <- Internet Access
+ 615 <-Online Information Services
+ 6AL <- BMW Live
+ 6AB <- Control Teleservices

2. VO CODE HU_CIC (modifies the headunit with the new car options from step 1):

Connect => Read FA (VO) => Activate FA (VO) => Read SVT (VCM) => Right-Click on Head Unit ECU (e.g. HU_NBT, HU_CIC, HU_CHAMP, HU_ENTRY, HU_ENTRYNAV, etc.) (the ECU itself not the underlying CAFD) => Select CODE (Not Code FDL).


3. VO CODE CMB_MEDIA(modifies the Combox with the new car options from step 1):

Connect => Read FA (VO) => Activate FA (VO) => Read SVT (VCM) => Right-Click on CMB_MEDIA (the ECU itself not the underlying CAFD) => Select CODE (Not Code FDL).

4. FDL CODE CMB_MEDIA (This step will allow you to write a fake VIN in your Combox:

FDL code CMB_MEDIA / TELEMATIK_VIN =Your real FA VIN This will allow you to alter the VIN for the later steps.

5. Change VIN to fake VIN in VO and FDL code to Combox (Allows the fake VIN to be transferred to the Combox)

(DO NOT code anything else with this FA, and DO NOT write this FA to the car)For Internet and BMW Live to work, you need a VIN with factory options 614 and 615.

Connect => Read FA (VO)=> Edit FA (VO) => Change VIN to FAKE VIN=> Right click on FA => Calculate FP => => Save FA using new name FA_FAKEVIN=> Goto Expert mode => VCM => Load saved FA_FAKEVIN (VO)=> Right click on FA => Calculate FP=>FDL code CMB_MEDIA


6. Read CMB_MEDIA coding data, and verify the new VIN in brackets.

7. FDL CODE Combox and HU and make sure these parameters are as follows (Make note of the original settings in case you need to revert back)
:


CMB_MEDIA:
- MAIN_BOARD_ALONE: mainboard_alone
- ETHERNET: nicht_aktiv
- DUN_PROFILE: aktiv
- PAN_PROFILE: aktiv
- BT_EIN_AUS: aktiv
- TELEMATIK_VIN: Coding_vin
- STARTUP_ACTIVE: nicht_aktiv
- DATACOMM_INTERFACE: mamac
- SIM_ENABLED_MB: enabled_all
- DATACOMM_CSIM: aktiv
- ONLINE_ROUTER: aktiv

HU_CIC:
- CONNECTED_DRIVE: aktiv
- PAN_PROFILE: nicht_akitv
- DUN_PROFILE: nicht_akitv
- BT_MODUL_ON_OFF: nicht_aktiv
- BT_DATA_SERVICE: nicht_aktiv
- DATACOMM_INTERFACE: combox
- DATACOMM_TRANSFER: mamac
- ONLINE_BROWSER: nur_mit_bmw_internet
- ONLINE_SERVICES: nicht_aktiv
- ONLINE_SERVICES_GLS: nicht_aktiv
- TDA_CFG_CUST_MOBILE_USE: aktiv
- ONLINE_BROWSER_LIVE: aktiv

8. Either shut down E-Sys, or load your original FA back and activate it before coding anything else.

9. Enable Data Transfer Option Under Phone

10. Enable Bluetooth Data Tethering on Phone

11. Under Connected drive; Update services (should show BMW Live and Internet services)

12. Go to BMW Live and Internet and make sure it is working

13. After it is working, use original VO with car VIN:

14. FDL CODE CMB_MEDIA with VO which has original VIN

Connect => Read FA (VO)=> Edit FA (VO) => Change VIN to FAKE VIN=> Right click on FA => Calculate FP => => Save FA using new name FA_FAKEVIN=> Goto Expert mode => VCM => Load saved FA (VO)=> Right click on FA => Calculate FP=>FDL code CMB_MEDIA

TELEMATIK_VIN = MOST_VIN

15. Read CMB_MEDIA and verify Short VIN in brackets [xxxxxxx] is car VIN.

DO NOT update services again or you will lose BMW Live and Internet.

*** If you do not return the Combox VIN to car VIN, you will encounter problems with future dealer programming, as the Combox will not be recognized, and programming will halt. ***

You don't have to write it to the car using "Write FA FP"?

Not everyone has it. As best as I can figure out in some markets like north America you can order it, but it uses the SIM card in your car.

In some markets like the UK it can use your phone's SIM card.

I an in Canada and my car didn't come with it, so I don't have a telematik Combox. So I am trying to a ti ate BMW live and Internet through my phone.

My ONLINE_BROWSER_LIVE falls under 3003 not 3000. Does that make a difference? (US Spec '13 328i w/ CIC, Combox & Pro Nav)

I would think it doesn't make a difference.
