when I go into "Instrument Cluster," and "Range Extender Battery Activation Level," I only see options for 1% to 6%, not 75%.

Am I looking in the wrong place, or did you have to use expert mode?


I'm waiting for my OBD interface to arrive. In the meantime, I've been looking at the options in the app.

It's disappointing to find out the options for the REX Battery Activation Level. I was hoping to set that to 25% so I don't have to remember to set the REX level manually.

Anyway, the option you're looking for is the "Range Extender menu" under "Head Unit (HU_NBT)" (or under "Head Unit (HU_NBT_EVO)"). That should add the Range Extender Menu (on Settings), where you can set the activation level to anything - 75% or below.

The 75% level is under "Headunit".

Will it work with i3 rex with Nav 606? My i3 does not have tech package. Will the mod works? I email to discountdvd, their hack is not working. Anyone will have good news for Nav 606?

In regards to the 75% all that needs to be done is activate REX menu?

SF BMW CODING is located in the San Francisco Bay Area

Adrian knows all the ins and outs---you can go to him or he offers remote coding

I have used both----
