To do the coding you can use either esys or BimmerCode. With esys you will need to purchase a custom cable to interface with the headunit; with Bimmercode you need to purchase a Bluetooth OBD unit and install the app on your phone/tablet.

I use both, BimmerCode when I’m lazy and want simple things done and esys when I really need to dig deep into system coding.

For your simple task I would advise you get BimmerCode and a Bluetooth dongle. I bought the Veepeak OBDCheck Ble+

I would also also advise you do some research, there’s tons of info here and other sites from a simple search.

I can help but in July. That’s when I’ll be back in Trini.

Just to be clear, you have the 6.5 mini connected screen ie colour screen and not the standard lcd screen. Can’t remember how they were building them for Trinidad.
