If you want to install and use the BimmerLink for BMW and Mini app on your PC or Mac, you will need to download and install a Desktop App emulator for your computer. We have worked diligently to help you understand how to use this app for your computer in 4 simple steps below:



Step 1: Download an Android emulator for PC and Mac

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


Step 2: Install the emulator on your PC or Mac

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.


Step 3: for PC - Windows 7/8 / 8.1 / 10

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 Mini application 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.


Step 4: for Mac OS

Hi. Mac user!
The steps to use this app 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 BMW and Mini Software Features and Description

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.

    This is a must have for BMW owners. The list of what this can read with your OBD dongle is incredible. Frankly it gives too much information. BMWs are computers on wheels with multiple excuses, each one capable of tons of info. If you want basic info, you have that too. I believe there’s enough info picked up to keep you busy hunting down what it all means for months.
  • Great app

    This app does exactly what it should. It lets you clear errors, play with the exhaust flap and ASD, look at sensor values yes they are in Celsius and the like but I don’t mind. Maybe they will update it to Fahrenheit in the future. But I don’t mind. It’s super easy to use. And they updated to to English. So even better. All the people that gave it negative reviews cause some of it was in German are just crybabies.
  • Well put together but I don't read german

    Buyer 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.
  • Great app when it works

    It 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.

  • Does not work

    1
    By Kryptik Enigma
    I’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.
  • Not for data logging

    By Trev J.
    May 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.
  • Units of measurement

    App is great! Just wish there was an option to toggle units of measurement.
  • Great App for BMW Owners

    Really good app, I can clear codes, open exhaust flap, register battery, as well as being able to know previous faults on my F30.
  • Battery registration fail

    By sqmeyer
    F25 2011 X3. This app was unable to register a new battery which was the reason I bought it. Too much money for an app that just reads codes.
  • Awesome except...

    By Eddien123
    I’ll give it 5 stars because no other iOS app is this in-depth. But please guys, implement the ability to change units. I’m ok with Celsius but I don’t want to read boost pressures in hPa. Other than that if anyone’s looking to get an app for code clearing and monitoring... this is it.

  • Total waste of money for an i3 owner

    Your app neither supports the i3 or battery registration...which was the only reason I bought the app!
