Ok. First things first. If you want to use the application on your computer, first visit the Mac store or Windows AppStore and search for either the Bluestacks app or the Nox App . Most of the tutorials on the web recommends the Bluestacks app and I might be tempted to recommend it too, because you are more likely to easily find solutions online if you have trouble using the Bluestacks application on your computer. You can download the Bluestacks Pc or Mac software here .
Now that you have downloaded the emulator of your choice, go to the Downloads folder on your computer to locate the emulator or Bluestacks application.
Once you have found it, click it to install the application or exe on your PC or Mac computer.
Now click Next to accept the license agreement.
Follow the on screen directives in order to install the application properly.
If you do the above correctly, the Emulator app will be successfully installed.
Now, open the Emulator application you have installed and look for its search bar. Once you found it, type BimmerLink for BMW and Mini in the search bar and press Search. Click on BimmerLink for BMW and Miniapplication icon. A window of BimmerLink for BMW and Mini on the Play Store or the app store will open and it will display the Store in your emulator application. Now, press the Install button and like on an iPhone or Android device, your application will start downloading. Now we are all done.
You will see an icon called "All Apps".
Click on it and it will take you to a page containing all your installed applications.
You should see the icon. Click on it and start using the application.
Hi. Mac user!
The steps to use BimmerLink for BMW and Mini for Mac are exactly like the ones for Windows OS above. All you need to do is install the Nox Application Emulator or Bluestack on your Macintosh. The links are provided in step one
BimmerLink for iOS is the direct link to your BMW or Mini. Using an OBD adapter 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, BimmerLink allows you to read trouble codes from all control units in your car. Existing trouble codes can be cleared easily and besides the error memory you can also read errors from the info memory and the permanent error memory. DISPLAY REALTIME SENSOR VALUES BimmerLink provides a huge 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. DPF REGENERATION 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. BATTERY REGISTRATION 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. REQUIRED ACCESSORIES To use the app one of the supported Bluetooth or WiFi OBD adapters is required.
