Impressive considering they are not on the road. Wonder how developer tested.

Website also says software can code HUD turnsignals, which cannot be done on Digital clusters.
I contacted Bimmercode back in the end of July when I placed my order for the X5 and the reply was that the ECU is shared by other G series vehicles. So any G series vehicle will be supported right from the start and more features will become available as they start working with that specific model.
FWIW I can't update ASS in BimmerCode with this update. I updated the app and received the following error (in diagnostics mode as the app requires) when loading the Engine Control Module ECU. I am using the Kiwi3 adapter

Update: A later commenter noted

The G05 is still not listed as a supported vehicle. http://www.bimmercodeapp.com/cars/

Possibly the listed has not been updated?

I have two, g30 and a g05.
I have already programmed my g30 using said adapter and bimmercode. The g05 isnt supported yet on bimmercode, well they say it is now because of the update but I will find out at 5. But I did plug this adapter into the g05 2 days ago and it worked fine, I was able to see all the ecu's. Im not sure why you dont think this adapter will work but I assure you it works. But I mean if you dont want to believe thats fine order one from germany.

list of adapter that work on bmws and bimmercodeapp.

Yep thats the same error I got 3 days ago when someone said the developers at bimmercode said it was working. Well thanks for being the tester, I will still give it a shot when the wife gets home.

Let us know, I assume the developer says it only works with that adapter for a reason, but if yours works that would be awesome - I can see 2 ECU's but can't code them with the adapter I have currently (it isn't the one you have). Let us know if you can get it to code ASS off as it is the writing that seems to be the issue with other adapters.

I have a 2018 G30 and I successfully used the Veepeak OBDCheck BLE OBD2 and Bimmercode to get rid of the legal disclaimer message and remember my last start stop setting. I got an error message when I tried using the Veepeak on my G05 two weeks ago. I'll try it again tonight now that the app has been updated, but I think we need that German OBD reader or it's a no go.

Bimmercode still doesn't work with the G05, so I wouldn't worry too much about which adapter it says to use at this point. The Veepeak and UniCarScan adapters both support all the same OBD2 protocols, so not sure why the Veepeak wouldn't work just fine. Especially since it has been working fine with the other G series cars that were out prior to the X5.

My understanding is that not only does the G05 have about 95% new ECU's compared to other G series cars but also needs a better quality more stable connection for communication. Seems previous G series models will not help us get anywhere much with the G05.

Rob - codemycar.com is in Newton this Fri-Sun. I'm headed down there Sat at 11:30 to get my A.S.S. coded to remember last setting.

Let me know (PM) if you want the detes.

Yes PM me, all I really want is the rear hatch to close from key fob and door button if they can do that already think that has been figured out also.

Thanks

Correct.

ACSM, BDC, FZD, and HKFM are the same.

Mapping is similar, but some ECU's have additional configuration files and most of new.

I emailed bimmercode asking when or if they might add more adapters and this is the reply.

Hi,
at the moment the only adapter that can handle the amount of data included in the ACSM and the BDC is the UniCarScan adapter. I could have allowed all adapter for coding this units, but it is very likely that coding will fail and you may not even be able to restore the original coding data.
