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.
RESET SHORT CIRCUIT LOCKS
Unlock lamp outputs that were disabled due to a short circuit.
TRANSMISSION ADAPTATION VALUES
Check the adaptation values of the ZF 8HP automatic transmission in your vehicle.
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.

BimmerLink for BMW and MINI Positive Reviews
SatisfiedI 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..Version: 3.2
THE GREATEST BMW APPThe 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!!!.Version: 3.3
Registering Mini BatteryReplaced the battery on my 2013 Mini Cooper S
After I replaced it, plugged in the supported adapter and the app connected flawlessly.
Registering the battery took about 1 minute from connecting.
Very user friendly, lots of options to tweak around. Make sure you check the website for supported vehicles and adapters that you have to acquire separately..Version: 4.4
Pretty SolidThis is a pretty solid app for clearing codes, I use Carly as well and this one is much faster and smoother. Well worth the price Only one issue is all codes are in German, you will have to copy text and translate to English. I emailed the developer and there hopefully will be a English version sometime in the future. Pick up a Vgate WiFi gen 3 adapter off eBay to use this app and you’re good to go..Version: 1.3
OutstandingThis 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..Version: 2.0.1
Great appThis 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..Version: 2.0.1
Great App!This is a very useful app that can save you many dollars in dealer cost. Using it just to register a battery change can save you a couple hundred bucks if your willing to spend half an hour changing it yourself. Grab BimmerCode too for the ability to customize many of the features on your car..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
LifesaverThis app saved me hard twice now. First, when I was replacing my 328i’s exhaust valve actuator and then replacing my rear brake pads since you need to retract the electronic parking break fully in order to push the caliper piston back without wrecking things. Definitely worth the purchase if you service your own vehicle.Version: 4.3
Great Tools For BimmerI haven’t have no problems whatsoever with this amazing app. I love all the features and option that had been added lately. A scanner tool, service reset and coding… great app for half of what other is charging. Pay one time and never worry about yearly fee..Version: 4.3
10/10Heard a lot of negative and positive reviews from this app but the fact is that it is definitely worth the price. I am able to open the flaps on my 2013 E70 and it makes the car sound amazing. Also noticed that they provide US units like mph and Fahrenheit which is very useful..Version: 3.3
Bought to register a new 12 volt battery on my i3.Seemed a bit extreme to spend over $30 for the app but worked well to register the new battery and clear some error codes. Probably will download the Bimmercode app next..Version: 4.4
I cleared several errors & was able to reset my check engine light after one of my charge pipes came off.
Lots of cool features to program & you can monitor multiple parameters on your phone.
My fav is the ASD “off” for my application..Version: 4.4
Perfect for sensor and data monitoring. Worth every pennyI was looking for a good data logging and sensor monitoring app. This one hits on all levels. Perfect for what I needed plus a few extras included. Highly recommended. I run the app on iOS with MHD WiFi F series black adapter. No issues so far..Version: 4.4
Worth every penny.App is great. Easy to use. Way easier than downloading sketchy software and lugging out a laptop. I have emailed the developers twice and both times heard back within a day. Hopefully they update with the ability to service the rear brake pads soon..Version: 3.3
It worked like a charmI have to admit, I was very apprehensive using it after reading the reviews. I used it with the Veepak OBD and it connected right away. I registered the new battery for my 2017 X6. Simple enough and totally worth the money..Version: 4.5
A must have appI purchased this app mainly to register my new battery. I was also able to clear error codes that I didn’t know I had. Well worth the money. The dealership wanted $200 and local shop $140 just to register the battery..Version: 3.3
E93 Hardtop issues solvedI ran down my battery with the hardtop midway open. I was able to manually open and close, but not with the button. After resetting the CTM codes, the top works great! Money well spent..Version: 4.4
Refund? Unable to connect iphoneI installed paid version on my iphone but was unable to connect to obd2.
I had to install on Samsung tab and paid again. Any whay I can get a refund on iphone? I don’t see a contact for this request.Version: 3.3
Best Value based on what you can monitorI have loaded several of these OBD apps. So far in my opinion for my E70 X5 BMW this app has helped the most when it comes to seeing what is going on with all my sensors….Version: 4.5
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
Love this appMake sure to buy a quality OBD connector. I bought a cheap one and it kept disconnecting. After buying a quality one I have had no issues..Version: 4.4
OptionsShould have capability to modify the dashboard displays Like shorten or change the name of the display.
Info about which displays work for certain vehicles would be nice.
The DEF level does not work with this app, but works with the OBD Link app.
So the data is there.
It does have some pretty cool information..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
Extremely gratefulThis app saved me from paying the dealer $185 just to install and register my battery. And that is just the beginning. I’m sure I’ll save a lot more money in the future. Thank you Dev Team.Version: 3.3
Saved me a costly trip to the dealerI do my own brake pad maintenance on my G82 m4. This app lets me retract the rear parking brakes, and also let me clear a bunch of codes from the brake by wire system detecting hydraulic fluid level changes in the caliper. Amazing!.Version: 4.4
No way to contact the sellerI purchased this app under the impression my 2010 E60 is supported. As soon as I made the purchase and realized my mistake, I’ve been trying to get a refund for something i can’t even use..Version: 2.2.1
Use it every dayVerified BMW technician and use it all day everyday for resetting service lights and putting the electronic E-Brake into service position, if you work on BMW this is a must have tool.Version: 4.4
Way more basic than I hoped.Works ok. Just really bare bones on features. Cant save a car cant resume a session easily ie specific modules selected etc. Have to wait 10mins for it to scan dozens of modules the car doesn't have instead of remembering the VIN and what modules it has etc..Version: 4.4
Used to reset errors on 2 BMW’sEasy to use and reasonably priced. Fast too. Used the same ODB II WiFi adapter as for BimmerCode. Interesting to see which modules in each car has generated error codes and it was easy to clear them..Version: 3.3
Great app for the priceUser friendly, great UI, the support is helpful.
I would recommend buying this app for anyone looking for an easy to use diagnostic app for BMW..Version: 4.4
Good for the priceIn my early usage, I can say it has its usefulness. However I did not see an option to monitor independent wheel speed sensors for diag. If i’m just missing that option then 5 stars for its usefulness.Version: 4.4
Really good!Seriously awesome for my 2012 f30
it shows every gauge missing from the car, it’s really nice to be able to see coolant temp
totally worth $30.Version: 4.3
Great app, BUT!Overall great app, but it’s missing the parking brake retraction option. I mean come on for $30+ just the basics? Please consider adding this option thank you..Version: 3.3
Better than ExpectedEasy navigation and simple options to export reports for errors and clear them..Version: 3.2
Power to the peopleThis app has saved me; time, money, energy, money, time, money, time and a bit more money..Version: 4.4
Works great but oil change resetsEverything seems to work perfectly except oil change resets. Wish they had an update for that issue..Version: 4.4
Worth it!One battery change, and the Bimmerlink app and Veepeak adapter have paid for themselves! Battery registration function to the rescue!.Version: 4.4
Well worth the moneyI was a bit skeptical about a an app that diddles with the coding of my car.
But it works well if you follow instructions Good value.Version: 4.1.1
Must haveYou own a bmw …… just get this!.Version: 4.5
BMW X5 issuesHelped me resolve a bunch of issues at really cheap cost, I love this app wish I knew few years ago it existed..Version: 4.4
AmazingBought both BimmerLink and BimmerCode and man all I got to say is this made my life so much easier, you can check for any fault codes on this app and even code in a new battery which is already a value ! Keep it up, hope to see more future updates and functions 😎.Version: 4.0.1
Doesn’t do much at all.Just a boring app for the F02, maybe if you did some updates it would be worth the money..Version: 4.1.1
BimmerLink and Bimmercode is the best app ever for your BMWBimmerLink and Bimmercode is the best app ever for your BMW.Version: 3.3
Very handyIt’s a really nice app, honestly it does much than my scanner for bmw. For what it can do and the fact you can register a new battery, 50$ is a fair price. Must have.Version: 3.3
Easy to useApp price is a bit high.
But This is great app to have some more info about your car
I tried for my BMW X5 No need any challenging, just turned on Bluetooth and push connection bottom
Notice: you can’t change anything in your car settings with this app only viewing performance.
If you need to change settings go for BimmerCode app.Version: 3.3
Changing my ratingMy apologies I gave a bad rating taking it back. The app connected to my OBD after a few trial and error works perfect.
Thank you support team.
I recommend this to everyone..Version: 3.2
Worked first time right out of boxUsing vepeak ble+ on iPad for 2008 535xit
Got signal and logged on immediately.
Could not present more than 5 dashboard values without read error...
Will play with it to run more tests.Version: 3.2
Do the jobI used it with veepaek adapter to read code only and it did the job. I did not already try the dashboard. If you whant to code buy BimmerCode..Version: 3.1.1
