BimmerLink is the direct link to your BMW or MINI. Using one of the supported OBD adapters you can read trouble codes or display sensor values in realtime, check the current state of the DPF in your car or register a new battery after replacement. BimmerLink even allows you to remotely control the exhaust flap or mute the Active Sound Design in your car.
READ AND CLEAR TROUBLE CODES
Diagnose your car as would otherwise be possible only by your Service Partner. In contrast to generic OBD apps that read emission related errors only, BimmerLink allows you to read and clear trouble codes from ALL control units in your car.
DISPLAY REALTIME SENSOR VALUES
BimmerLink provides a big selection of values like oil temperature or boost pressure. Keep an eye on all the important parameters of your car with a personalized dashboard.
EXHAUST FLAP REMOTE CONTROL*
Take control over the exhaust flap in your car and decide yourself, whether it should be closed or open.
ACTIVE SOUND DESIGN**
If you do not like the artificial engine sound generated in your car, just mute the Active Sound Design with BimmerLink.
The “Sound Tuning” option allows you to disable the “exhaust burble“ in cars equipped with the S55 engine (M2 Competition, M3, M4).
BimmerLink allows you to check the current state of the diesel particulate filter in your car. Find out when the last regeneration took place or how much ash has accumulated in the filter and start a regeneration with the touch of a button.
If you want to replace the battery in your car, this has to be registered in the engine control unit and BimmerLink allows you to do this yourself now.
PARKING BRAKE SERVICE MODE
BimmerLink allows you to activate the service mode for the electromechanical parking brake.
Reset the service display in your car after carrying out maintenance work like a brake pad replacement or an engine oil change.
To use the app one of the supported Bluetooth or WiFi OBD adapters or cables is required. For more information please visit https://bimmerlink.app.

Ratings and Reviews
I have been a very frustrated Carly user for a few years now. All I really need from one of these ODB apps is fault identification, fault clearing, reports of same, and battery registration.
Carly would not register the battery for my i3. And everything else it does has become more like a video game than a helpful diagnostic tool.
BimmerLink does it all much more simply and easily than any other app I have found. Including a simple battery registration. I hope Bimmerlink keeps it simple and reliable. Anything in these apps that can be done to help diagnose faults in a car is good, if the app has features that get in the way of that, it is bad, and I don’t want to buy it. I’m troubleshooting cars, not app programming.
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!
Developer Response ,
Hi, the app uses a diagnostic function to control the exhaust flap. This is not a permanent setting and when the car is restarted the exhaust flap is reverted to the default mode of operation. There is no way around it unfortunately.
THE GREATEST BMW APP
The app is very easy to setup and use. It is a great compliment to BimmerCode. I have both apps and the both have different functions. BimmerLink is for clearing any fault codes and BimmerCode is to changing how my car functions like lights coming on and how doors and windows are locked. They both have there on vital functions and are both great app’s. I wasn’t able to see faults in BimmerCode so that’s where BimmerLink comes in handy. They both work with my ODB2 adapter VGate Pro Bluetooth 4.0. So I’ve got the best of both worlds with one adapter. Both apps can be setup for what you want to see of your most desired functions. BimmerLink thanks for a Great App!!!
