Installation Guide Easy Coding

For BMW’s with CIC head units

1. Prepare a USB flash drive by formatting it. Formatting will erase all data from the USB drive, so if

you have important files on it, please copy them to another drive before formatting.

If your OS is Windows, format by right-clicking on the USB drive icon when it is connected to your PC and select on "Format" on the drop down menu. A “quick” FAT32 format will do just fine.

If you have an Apple computer you will need to open “Disk Utilities”, select the USB flash drive and click on “erase”. Format the drive to “MS-DOS (FAT)”. To confirm the format is correct, right click on the USB drives icon and click on “Get Info”.

2. Copy the coding file to the FAT32 formatted USB flash drive. Please make sure the file hasn't been

renamed after you saved it. Some browsers can add suffixes like “(1)” to the file name when downloading. This has been known to block the coding. Also make sure there is only one copy of the file stored on the flash drive. The file loaded to the root folder along with the stick’s properties will look as shown below on a Windows computer:

4. Insert the USB flash drive into the USB port in the glove compartment (the armrest USB port can’t be used!).

Congratulations! You can now enjoy all of your BMW’s new options!

After coding is complete, remove the installation file from the flash drive before using it again in the car.
