BimmerLink for BMW and MINI for Negative User Reviews

App doesn’t workThis app does not work! I have purchased an ODB adapter from the approved list and it still says incompatible when I open the app. The adapter works fine with bimmercode. I WANT MY MONEY BACK.Version: 3.0

Non-functionalUnfortunately bimmerlink was non-functional for my device/ENET. The reason I give it one star, is because the sister app of BimmerCode works fine with the same exact cable/adapter, device, and settings. This is clearly a compatibility/development issue. Refund requested, as it’s not a cheap app to be dysfunctional..Version: 4.4

This App is a SCAMI got this app specifically for my F30 328D and it can’t read codes!! When I go into info Memory. It’s BLANK. My 20 dollars scanner can even read the codes. Requesting a refund please. I will try to contact Apple to rectify this!.Version: 4.4

Better apps out thereThis app is sub par considering it was meant for BMWs. It gives you a lot of details about error codes and such but most of it is useless. The error codes are also in different codes then the standard ones used so you can’t even look them up. It doesn’t even have the ability to give you correct boost pressure. Spend your money else where. OBD fusion app is much less and has better layout..Version: 3.0.1

Battery RegistrationApp description states that it supports F30.I have BMW F30 330i LCI and app does not support battery registration for this car ATM.Waste of $42 for me.You should clearly state what it does not support..please update app to support all F30 models not just pre 2015 or refund money until you fix..Version: 2.0.1

Why exhaust valve not showing in the BimmerLink Manu????Why exhaust valve not showing in the BimmerLink Manu????.Version: 4.3

MisleadingI bought this solely for the purpose of controlling the exhaust valves. Which you can open and close. That is until you come out of the app. They revert back to normal. Logic says if you open something remotely it remains open until you close it. Not this. Very disappointed and would like to be refunded please..Version: 3.3

Incorrect readingsGenuinely love the app, it’s simple and sleek and easy to use but when it comes to reading the boost it seems to be off the correct chart by 15 PSI. I’m tuned at 20psi for now and I’ve used other apps and softwares to see which one is wrong and the rest all read around 20 but BimmerLink shows me averaging 30-35psi which would blow my motor and turbo since it can only handle max 26 at the moment. Couldn’t find a email to contact customer service about this..Version: 4.0

Poor options for minisOnly a few options for minis it seems (r56) feel a little ripped off as nothing helpful..Version: 4.3

Nice app with limitationsTwo things I wish they would change. 1. A selection for different units like °F or mph. 2. The list of sensor measurements is way too long and when you add a new measurement, it doesn’t remember your position in the list. Needs to be grouped into sections..Version: 2.0.1

Exhaust flap control NO!If you are buying This app to control the exhaust flap in your car so you can set it to permanently open, don’t bother! The app is miss leading and it only lets you control the exhaust flap you can’t leave it permanently open. As soon as you turn off the car it re sets to factory settings. Do not spend money on this app just for the exhaust flap! Disappointed!.Version: 4.4

Was AMAZING new update sucksWith the latest update all of the dashboard values update SUPER SLOW. I have an IPhone XS Max and it still chugs version 2.01 was ideal. Please speed issue!.Version: 2.1

Weak app and they don’t stand behind it.*WARNING* BimmerLink incapable of keeping the exhaust flap in an open state. I purchased the BimmerLink app specifically to keep the exhaust flap open on my new 2020 X3 M40i without disconnecting wires or other crude methods. It bothers me to start up that nice car and see exhaust only coming out of the passenger side tail pipe. It makes the whole car seem fake and cheapens the overall appeal. I thought BimmerLink was an elegant solution to my problem. I was initially happy to see that flap finally open for the first time, but was VERY disappointed to see it revert to closed again. Then I realized that you have to open your iPhone, start BimmerLink, connect to the OBD device, select the flap control option and open the flap every time you get in the car. Really? I thought these supposedly smart guys who write BimmerCode would come up with something a LOT better than this weak app for that amount of money. Lots of fluff and no substance. Very disappointed in this app, and they keep your money!.Version: 3.3

Well put together but I don't read germanBuyer beware, the app seems like it's in English but to read any of the gauges or trouble codes, you must read german. 27 bucks to control my exhaust flap is not worth it to me. Update: The developers have now translated most app functions to English. I am keeping this at 3 stars due to lack of ability to change between Celsius and Fahrenheit or MPH and KPH..Version: 2.0.1

Fishing app.This app did highlight that it will cost money of 49.99 dollars, once you using finger print, then you purchased it..Version: 2.0.1

Exhaust flaps no no noOpensThe app for my M2 comp made no difference whatsoever it’s in the on position read the engine in efficient mode quiet slip into M2 mode exhaust flaps open as they should so the app is useless.Version: 4.4

Carista not compatible despite being an option on the appI had seen a friends BimmerLink app and it looked good especially as under connection/adapter it had Carista listed. I bought the app and later found out Carista is not supported. Why have it as an option to connect to it, if it is not supported? I’ve emailed support twice in two weeks to give a fair chance to respond to me but no one has bothered themselves to reply. Absolute waste of £30. I want a refund, very misleading when the app lists Carista. Hopefully, this will be seen...Version: 3.3

Misleading support, no updatesWebsite says they support all MINI, i3, and i8 so you’d assume it supports the MINI Cooper SE - it does not. I emailed months ago asking about this and they said sorry, we’re working on it. I doubt they are sorry now that they have a $30+ sale and don’t have to refund on support it. Really frustrating situation since no updates are inbound and the app is next to useless for the vehicle..Version: 4.4

Waste of MoneyWaste of Money once you have the BimmerCode.Version: 4.4

BMW X1 2016Doesn't work for my bmw..Version: 4.4

Total waste of MoneyApp will not connect if you have your phone connected to the car’s hands free or Apple car play. In fact the car will over ride the connection to the OBD transmitter. Also if you are buying this for exhaust flap control, the feature will timeout to default oem setting in about 15minutes. Save your money for something else, I wish I did..Version: 1.3

No longer lets me reset oil change intervalsI purchased this app so I could reset my oil change intervals and it no longer lets me do that, only brakes and vehicle check AVOID.Version: 4.4

Rubbish appWaste of money can’t even open my exhaust flaps on my m5 will be spreading the word not to buy.on Facebook/Twitter..Version: 3.2

Didn’t tel me I also need to buy a adapterCan I get my money back and delete the app.Version: 4.4

ASDI have a 2015 425i Mperformance and I got this app to code my car. The only thing I can code is the exhaust flap open and close. The add feature is thee but nothing displayed. I waste 36$ misleading app..Version: 1.2.7

You are better off with BimmercodeBimmerlink, easy to use and have the configuration option that most people are looking for: turning off ASD, turning off popping noise and keep exhaust valves open or close. The problem? once you turn off your car, all those settings are reset. You have to do it again the next day, connect to the OBDII port, put your settings in the app and start the car. Pay 30$ for this? No. Bimmercode cost the same and settings are not rested every time you turn off the car.Version: 4.3

Not worth the moneyI already paid for BimmerCode and thought this would be different but £30 for an app that does pretty much nothing is disappointing.Version: 3.3

DFP regeneration did not workFailed to get DFP regen working.Version: 4.0.1

Does not workI’ve been a user of Bimmercode for awhile now and it’s been great. Needed Bimmerlink for battery registration and it doesnt with with any of my adapters. It keeps saying “Connection to adapter failed” or “the engine ECU cannot be identified. My adapters all work fine with Bimmercode and yet doesnt work with Bimmerlink. I have a Kiwi3, Unicarscan, icarpro, and Veepeak. Nothing will connect..Version: 2.1

Will not connectWill not connect and will not say why. No tech help because the help request will not go through. All it does is say connect,push it, it tries and then it says connect again and again. No help, can’t use app..Version: 4.4

Misleading - both apps require purchasing to code a new battery typePerhaps naively I read the capability that this app allowed you to register a new battery, assuming registration was all that is required. No - you need the BimmerCode app for that at another £30.99. It should be made clearer, but that’s probably what they rely on. Will be requesting a refund as they are misleading on this.Version: 4.3

Very poor, please don’t waist your moneyWaisted £.Version: 3.3

Not easy to use.Needs to be more user friendly and the a simpler way to use. Does not provide any sensor values for F25..Version: 4.4

Great app when it worksIt looks like app hasn’t been updated to iOS12.1 or there’s a bug The app launches and just does a loader circle for an indefinite amount of time When it did however the more recent updates added English translations for a lot of the sensor read outs which made the app much more usable. Exhaust flap feature works wonders..Version: 2.0.1

Doesn’t do much at all.Just a boring app for the F02, maybe if you did some updates it would be worth the money..Version: 4.1.1

Not for data loggingMay not be the fault of the app but could be wireless technology the app tries to leverage - but either way the refresh rate is terrible and makes data logs useless. Multiple seconds pass between refreshes. I would only use this to read codes..Version: 2.1

Valve does not open fullyI bought the app like most of people for the exhaust valves..got a 330 G20, but they open just a 20%, if that. Emailed for support three times, put a bad review and everything got sorted quickly. Everything works fine now, app is good. Customer service needs some improvement..Version: 3.3

I want to cancel my purchaseThere is no option to cancel the purchase This doesn’t code anything.Version: 4.3

BimmercodeConfusing, complicated - poor instructions and hard to follow..Version: 4.4

UselessTitle says it all. Don’t waste your money..Version: 3.3

Not intuitiveMy download certainly does not open with all the info screens shown online / just get a screen with six options (include battery registration).Version: 4.4

Nothing works apart from sensorsI am connecting and nothing works i wantsdit for the exhaust flap but all i have is auto option and open when i click on open it goes back to auto doea not work i have a 4 series m sport 2016 nothing works please advise?.Version: 3.0.1

4.0.1The new version is extremely slow when fault scanning compared to previous versions.Version: 4.0.1

Exhaust flap doesn’t refresh itselfCan you already update so I don’t have to keep going back to the app every 10 mins to keep exhaust flap open?! It shouldn’t be difficult to do this....Version: 3.0

Connectivity issuesGreat functionality, but has too many issues connecting to Bluetooth adapters.Version: 4.1

Not very goodWould not buy this if I was you. It won’t even let me cancel the order and I just bought it..Version: 4.0.1

Doesnt even connect?I have used BM3 and Bimmercode with my ENET cable numerous times with no issues. But this app refuses to connect. I have to change the adapter between ENET modBMW ENET and mhd ENET after around 20 tries it usually connects using 1 of the 3 random adapters i select. Literally makes no sense. Bimmercode has 0 issues connecting but this app is terrible. Complete waste of money..Version: 4.4

CRAZY slow.It takes about 2 minutes to read. I don’t find the info very useful..Version: 3.3

All diagnoses and codes are in Sherman£25 and I’m expected to know German to be able to use this app. No option to change the language to English. Kinda pointless seeing as don’t understand German..Version: 1.2.7

Misleading battery registration featureI bought this to register a new battery installed in my f10. It gives you no option to chose your battery type. BimmerLink is a scam that will only do the same as a number of free apps. Don’t waste your money which Apple won’t refund your money.Version: 3.2

Not impressedCan’t say this app is worth anything other than monitoring dpf wish I hadn’t bothered.Version: 3.3

Did nothing for me but waste my timeI bought the app and it did nothing, empty screen with no sensors to add, nowhere to be found. I contacted support and they acted quickly sending me this BETA app link to download which I did, the result was the same, no sensors to add so the app is EMPTY, nothing to measure for my 2004 BMW 5 Series. I will try to get a refund from Apple on this app as suggested by Bimmer technician. Wish me luck, I have my screenshots and emails to backup my complaint..Version: 4.3
