    Group Buy Feeler: BMWLogger Software for MSS60

    Group Buy Feeler for BMWLogger Data Logging Software for MSS60 DME
    I wasn't entirely sure where the best place was to post this. I figured since this section of the forum revolves around Engine and ECU Modification, this would be most fit. Moderators, if you feel this to be more appropriate else where, feel free to relocate.


    Many of us are starting to explore different avenues in pulling out power from our cars. In my opinion, to maximize power and to measure safe gains, data logging is an integral part of the journey. Running our cars on the dynos seem to be a common trend these days, but as many know, it only shows a small part of the story. This led me to researching in ways of affordably logging data on the road and track.


    Acquiring a means of logging data gives us the ability to see what are cars and DMEs are actually doing in real life conditions, not just simulation on dyno rollers in a very controlled environment. This information could even possibly be sent to different tuners for review in case of revamping one's tune or set of modifications.


    I have looked over many different tools and often times, were way above my budget. Finally, I stumbled upon a very nice program, BMWLogger by BimmerSoftware. Priced at an incredible rate, when paired with a proper OBDII-USB cable, one can easily monitor and log data.


    The software has notable features such as:

    • Read and Clear DME Fault Codes
    • Clear Adaptations
    • Real-Time Datalogging of different parameters (IAT, Ignition Advance, RPM, VANOS, etc)
    • Record, Save, and Load Data for Review
    • Export data to CSV


    Here is a short tutorial video going over the interface of the software.




    Here is the link to the BimmerSoftware website:
    http://bimmersoftware.com/BMWLogger-2


    After speaking with the software developer of BMWLogger, he offered a nice opportunity for the E9X M3 Community to join in on a Group Buy.


    The software is already priced at a friendly $49. In addition, all you need is a compatible OBDII-USB Cable. If Group Buy commences, I will try to collate some good sources for compatible cables. Rest assured, if we can get a handful of individuals to commit, the price of the software will lower to cover some of the cost in investment in a cable.


    Before pricing tiers are decided upon, I wanted to see what the interest would be. So if interested, feel free to reply to this thread, add your name to the growing list, or PM me.

    Can you use the BT tool as the cable? If there was a list of user friendly cables, i think people would be all over this. The cable purchase is probably the only real reservation people have. Its definitely EXACTLY what people have been looking for.

    BUT, you can still add me Click here to enlarge

    I'll be getting in contact with BimmerSoftware today to collate a list of compatible cables.

    I am unsure if the BT cable works, but if it's FTDI Chip Set and K-CAN, I don't see why not. Stay tuned for more info!

    Oh...and added to the list Click here to enlarge

    Hmmm, not sure if it's something that you absolutely need.

    The reason why I want it is because I want to see and log how my car is actually tuning on the street/track in real life conditions. Unfortunately, most dyno shops here cannot reciprocate road conditions as close. So I want to see what kind of IATs, ECTs, Oil Temps, and Ignition I'm seeing on the street/track when I drive it hard.

    For me, it's just assuring that my tune is working optimally and more importantly, safely.

    Yeah it'll be nice for your application as well considering how custom and one-off it is. For your own purposes, you can log all those parameters to see how your tune is doing. I would see it beneficial for you, unless Gintani plans on logging all that stuff for you during development on the street and track.

    Yup, just have to download the software, purchase the license, and get one of these K+DCAN OBDII Cables for your laptop.

    Oh...hehe...I didn't know I can do that. I'm actually not entirely sure how to do that.

    I put it in the For Sale thread cause I wasn't sure if it's ok to post "for sale" stuff here. I get mixed up with all the different rules on endless amounts of forums Click here to enlarge

    Let me know what changes I have to make Click here to enlarge
