BootMod3 is awesome. You'll need an Ethernet to OBD2 cable to flash it from your laptop
laptop OR phone right?

also that CP recommendation does that apply to X drive models as well?

I run the BimmerCode app on my iPhone. I have the Evolution Raceworks charge pipe on my N55 engine and my car is an Xdrive.

Sorry noob question here, for the BimmerCode (https://bimmercode.app/adapters/), does the adapter always need to be plugged in? Or only when you are activating/deactivating options? I only ask because my JB4 needs to be plugged in.

Set up your 1-8 shortcut buttons. You can set them to almost anything that you can access in iDrive, not just radio presets. These are mine

1 - Call wife
2 - Messages
3 - Vehicle Status
4 - Comfort Ventilation
5 - blank
6 - blank
7 - Sports Display
8 - Stop nav (surprisingly useful when the car won't shutup but your destination is in sight)

Also i made a thread for free/cheap mods. Feel free to take a look.

You only need to plug it in when you are coding. After Iím done coding I plug my vehicle tracker back in.

Question about messages, what kind of messages do you get here? I thought there was more intricacy with apps/texts etc but maybe I can only do that with CarPlay added

I have:
1-4 radio
5-7 Satellite stations
8-home on nav

if you are referring to the obd bluetooth connector, it only needs to be plugged in when in use.

My daughter drives my car sometimes. The vyncs tracker allows me to gps locate the vehicle. It will send me notices if she speeds, brakes hard, turns hard, etc. costs $80 for a year. I buy a new one every year. Beats the cheap units but those have monthly fees which add up to more than $80 year.

I can track her phone but if she doesnít charge it or turns it off, I can at least find my car.

Mine goes to my text messages, but you need enhanced bluetooth for it to work with your phone. If your car didn't come with enhanced bluetooth, it can be added with coding (that's what I did). I believe it only came with cars that have the wireless phone charger in the armrest.

It's extremely convenient. I get notifications on the iDrive screen when I get texts. The car can then read texts to me and I can respond with voice commands without ever looking down or touching my phone.

Also whenever I code, I put my phone in airplane mode so calls or texts wonít interrupt me.
