Re: Anyone else having issues with BMW connect App not working?

I’m in Canada, and myBMW rarely works for me for sending commands (it’s ok for reporting status) if the car is in my driveway and I’m communicating from inside the house. I’ve tried being on Wifi or cell. If I am away from the house and say head into a store and try it using cellular then it seems t...

Re: Tuning Range Extender? 28kW -> 32,5kW?

I believe that it was tuned up a bit to give more power in the newer models. At least this was the impression I got from Tom's Blog and from David Bricknell (the UK fellow who wrote the great i3 book). Also, even though it would be desirable sometimes to have more REX power, keep in mind that you do...

Re: Video input to display screen (mirror iPhone screen)?

Playing video while moving almost anywhere in the USA will get you a moving violation if caught. The only one I know of that comes that way in the USA (well, it's available some places, I think in the USA, too) is on MB, where they have a polarized screen that can show two different images, dependi...

Re: Video input to display screen (mirror iPhone screen)?

Not sure what you are talking about. My car is already coded. Coding only gives you the ability to play certain video file formats and a whole bunch of other unrelated things. What I'm trying to do here, is get direct input to the screen, so that I can mirror my iPhone to the screen. That is not so...

Re: Video input to display screen (mirror iPhone screen)?

Tearing apart the dash to look for inputs seems more difficult than buying the coding cable and coding the car. Or it does to me, I had never coded a BMW previously and it came to me fairly easy, even did it on a Mac. Not sure what you are talking about. My car is already coded. Coding only gives y...

Re: Video input to display screen (mirror iPhone screen)?

I'm coded and have video. Not sure about sfontaine. Thanks, I will look a that Bimmertech product. Bimmertech did say that they don't have experience with the i3 and that there are 3 types of LVDS although they were pretty sure which one it would be. If you're in the US, you have to code your car to...

Re: Video input to display screen (mirror iPhone screen)?

I've tried this while parked using MP4 and mov files and doesn't play even while parked. Only audio. What formats are supposed to work? Don't have my USB stick with my test videos on it, with me right now. If I remember I will check and report back tonight or tomorrow. I would think there is anothe...

Re: Video input to display screen (mirror iPhone screen)?

The i3 can play videos, but without coding, do it only while parked. I don't think it has a 'normal' video input. Have you tested this? I thought in the U.S. the i3 can't play videos at all, even whilst parked. Yes it can play videos off of the USB when parked and I've got it coded so it plays whil...

Video input to display screen (mirror iPhone screen)?

I'm starting a new thread, as my quick searches found nothing here in the forum. Has anyone tapped into the in-car center display screen? Ideally I'd like to be able to mirror my iPhone to the center screen. Searching the internet, I see some people who have done this for other BMWs but not sure if ...

Re: Pandora

A few of the apps or functions will give you this response if you use Siri from the steering wheel. However, if you activate Siri fro the phone directly with the home button, then Siri will do what you ask. Of course that is a pain though and more dangerous. When I get in the car I sometimes connect...
