Description of bimmer-tool (BTool)

bimmer-tool allows to read & clear fault codes, request DPF regeneration, read engine live data and much more in BMW cars.

Try bimmer-tool lite to see whether the app is compatible with your BMW and your OBD adapter.

Important: This application requires a reliable OBD adapter. Cheap adapters will not work. K+D-Can cable, ENET cable/Wifi adapter (F/G series) or the following Bluetooth adapters are recommended:

- UniCarScan UCSI-2000: Choose setting: D-Can mode: MODE2 https://www.wgsoft.de/shop/obd-2-komplettsysteme/unicarscan/114/unicarscan-ucsi-2000-diagnoseadapter

https://www.bmdiag.co.uk/unicarscan-ucsi-2000-bluetooth-obd2-adapter

- Carista https://caristaapp.com/adapter

- Veepeak OBDCheck BLE https://www.veepeak.com/product/obdcheck-ble

Application allows to:

- read DPF regeneration status and detailed information

- request DPF regeneration

- reset DPF adaptation values (required after filter replacement)

- read exhaust fumes pressure

- read injectors adjustments

- read actual and expected values for air mass, intake manifold pressure, fuel pressure

- log data to CSV file for further analysis

- register battery replacement (without changing battery properties)

- reset lamps circuits blocked due to short-circuit error

- reset oil service or change interval**

Supported OBD adapters

- K+D-Can USB: This is recommended and most reliable adapter. You will also need USB-OTG cable.

- ELM327 Bluetooth: Bluetooth connection may be slower than USB. Only genuine ELM327 or PIC18-based adapters will work. It may not work with older engines. More info below.

- ELM327 WiFi: Like ELM Bluetooth connection may be less stable. On some devices mobile data transmission needs to be disabled to use WiFi adapter.

Application works also with BMW E60, E83**, E81, E87, F10, F30, F25 and with M47N/M57N (DDE5) engines in E46/E39** models.

Older engines like M47 DDE3, M57 DDE4 or M54 MS43 also works but only with K+DCan cable.

If you have questions or need any help send me an email. You can find my address on the bottom of the page.

Quick start

1) Connect adapter to OBD II socket

2) Turn ignition on

3) Connect adapter to your phone:

* USB: Connect adapter to the phone using USB-OTG cable. Phone will ask which app to start - choose bimmer-tool app.

* Bluetooth: Go to phone Bluetooth setting. Search for Bluetooth devices and pair the adapter with the phone (PIN is usually 0000 or 1234).

* Wifi: Turn mobile data transmission off. Turn WiFi on and search for available WiFi networks. Connect the phone to the adapter's WiFi.

4) Start the app, go to 'Car' and choose model and year.

5) Go to 'Connection' and choose connection type, adapter type and communication protocol.

6) Tap 'Connect' button.

**Limitations:

- Service reset and rain sensor reset in cars up to 2007 is only possible with UniCarScan UCSI-2000 or K+DCan cable.

- X3 E83 with M47/57 and ELM adapter supports engine only. For other modules use K+DCan cable.

- X5 E53, E39, E46 may not work with Bluetooth adapter. USB K+DCan is recommended.

Common problems

- Engine 'No response' error in cars up to 2007 and BT/Wifi adapter. If this error occurs from time to time, try selecting ATWM option under advanced connection settings.

- No connection: If adapter & protocol settings are correct and app still cannot connect to the car try force stop all diagnostic applications in application manager (including bimmer-tool) or restart the phone and try to connect again.

Why this app requires permissions?

- Storage: required for USB adapters support

- Photos / Media / Files: allows to create CSV files

- Pair with Bluetooth devices/access Bluetooth settings: required for Bluetooth adapters support

- Full network access: required for WiFi adapters support

- Approximate location: Theoretically it is possible to find approximate location using Bluetooth, however this app does not read/use location.

Purchased for battery change and to check DPF parameters/regen etc, so will already have saved me a shed load of money in garage bills. Customer support was helpful and quick. If only it could code items like AUX input then it would be more than perfect.

Brilliant app works great with the carista Bluetooth wireless device, cleared up my dpf with one trip down motorway, bmw 635D sport, very happy with this, it will save you lots of money in the long run.

Awesome, functional and cheap app. Saved me from headache/stress and hundreds of euros. Solved my exhaust backpressure and DPF regeneration problem (e87 M47 118d). It has a smart interface that enables your dpf to regenerate even if it\'s clogged to some reasonable point and even when it\'s not but errors 480A and 481A are blocking it from regeneration (app simply disables them for you automatically). It monitors all necessary values in real time. Backpressure test is very useful feature. Btool simply gives you more than some other apps. Thank you 100x !!

2014 BMW X5 35d All bidirectional commands are working from DPF adaptation reset using obd Carista adapter.... Battery registration....Call for forced DPF regeneration. And there is a lot of live Data to watch if you want. 💯 stars for the great Developer....also new pid for park brake chenage and manual starting low press. Pump cycle after fuel filter change is comfirmed and OK

Love this app but I\'ve just switched to an iPhone and can\'t get it on the app store. You guys have any intention on realising it for iOS ?

This $15 dollar app saved me at LEAST $135 by enabling me to purchase, install, and register my own replacement battery.... It has paid for itself at least 10-fold!! In addition, the creator is very responsive to emails and extremely helpful and knowledgeable about the product. I cannot give this enough praise!!

Great app and a great value compared to other options out there. I purchased specifically to register a new battery in my vehicle and it worked successfully. I initially had a problem getting it to work, but I contacted the developer and received a very prompt reply helping me go through the process. After following the instructions (ignition off vs ignition on) everything was very smooth.

Fantastic app! I was looking for a sensibly priced alternative to Carly to register a new battery and this worked a treat. Well worth the low price just for the one registration! The only thing I would say is the UI looks a bit dated but that doesn\'t matter to me. Thank you

Much better than Carly bmw app. It works great. If in future would be available coding options, it will be the best bmw app.
