Help with bummer code not connecting to BDC

I'm hoping someone can help, I have a 2019 330. Downloaded the bimmercode app, joined the beta, purchase full version and have the OBDlink LX adapter for android devices.

When I try to code sport + in bummer code I click on BDC and the app takes its time to load and then I get an error that it cannot access code data. Other parts of bimmercode work such as the instrument cluster but not BDC.
Any suggestions??

Not sure is this is applicable to your situation but I will share that when using bimmercode on my 2020 M340 and connecting with a wireless adapter I could not gain access to all the control units. I switched to a wired adaptor (for me with an iphone it was lightning to OBD) and all control units were then accessible.

I've had the same issue lately with Bimmercode. BDC loads for a while and then errors out.

BDC module needs a fast adapter, sounds like it's taking too long to read the module and timing out and giving the error. No issue for mine using wired enet adapter on android

OBD to lightning is the way to go if you have iPhone. It's super fast and very stable.

I use this combo & everything works flawlessly.

I had trouble accessing modules when I first got my adaptor. Try updating the firmware of your OBD adaptor. Once i updated mine, everything worked as it should have.
