Bimmercode vs Carly

After struggling with Carly for 4 months I decided to try Bimmercode and what a difference.

BimmerCode is great, I have everything coded that I need already. The app is much better designed than Carly, the user support was excellent and most importantly, it works.

They let me try their latest version in beta (3.3) which includes some additional coding options, so we know they are working to cover more coding features.

Don't waste your money on Carly, go with BimmerCode.

I coded the options below with an * and the others I want but are not available yet.

Auto start stop memory *
Turn signal in HUD
Key FOB trunk open and close *
Interior trunk open and close *
Legal disclaimer off *
Seatbelt Tug off
Tire pressure and Temperature *
Turn signal 5 flash Lane change*

I would guess that more than half of the options they have listed below are available in beta version 3.3 which they haven't released yet. If you ask them they will probably let you use it before release.

About to begin coding now that my 330 has been updated to version .70 and all remote functions are working.

Struggling to decide which app is the best route, this is helpful. Thank you

PS - how did you get the beta?

Looks like I’ll go the Bimmer code way too. Did you guys buy the obdlink Mx+ (or Mx/lx) or vgate? I noticed a message on bimmercode saying the newer gates might not work. So I’m kinda confused.

Meanwhile, folks at Carly are still busy playing solitaire on their computers.

Hi,

Have been trying to figure out how to update my E-Sys and Eys Launcher Pro that I used on my F30 so I can do some coding on my G20 M340i -- seems a little daunting.

This discussion has helped me pull the trigger on MX+ -- Amazon has a lighting deal and I saved several bucks!

Thanks
