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----

I coded my 2015 and when I attempt to turn on HSOC at 74, 73, 72, 71% it will not come on. Only below 70%. Did I do something wrong?

Secondly, I programmed it to button one, but when activated I can't turn off using the same button.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I don't know why it won't turn on at 75%, however I can tell you that sometimes there is a delay when you turn it off. If you programmed it to button 1, then you'd press button 1 again to turn it off. It might not shut off, or move the little triangle, for several minutes.

I have a question about coding engine start point. If I use bimmercode to enable adjusting the start point of the engine, do I adjust the set percent in the car menus or the bimmercode app? I haven't purchased the App yet.

Once I set a level of say 75% for highway driving, how do I return to 6% for city? Does it change back automatically?

Technically the BimmerCode enables display of the option to enable the REx. The threshold is 75% but you can hold off as long as you want. If you clear the checkbox, the REx will cool down and stop.
