Diagnostics software

Hello, can anyone recommend any decent code reading/diagnostic software that I can install on a laptop and connect to my E84 2011 comís port so that I donít need to run to the mechanic every time an error comes up in the dash. Thanks

I use Carly and their OBDII plug. I can read, Clear codes and some limited coding.

Thanks - can you post a link to where I can get the software please ? Will it tell me why I get this auto start stop malfunction error ? I believe it is a sensor.

Carli is an app with subscription that you can find on the app store depending what platform you're using android or ios.

The "error" you're referring to might not be an actual error but it just tells you that it's not active due to one of its many conditions not met. It might be your battery is not charged or outside temperature is too hot.

Carly is great. Use their OBDII adapter to be trouble free.

Yea, this is like on my 2013 X1 where you have the Auto start stop symbol with a slash through it and it's telling you 'Yea, I'd do the start stop thing but there's reasons why I can't'. One of those can be the cabin temp is too high (it's been quite warm out ~90F ) so it needs to have the A/C going.

I've actually been getting in the habit of turn off the auto start-stop (until I can code it to keep its setting between restarts) because I hate that feature.
