I have the android beta, I don't see any of these options in the app. Specifically the "Enable WMI Pump PWM." I think it is in the firmware release notes:

6) Relocated user adjustable WMI PWM mapping from FUA=60 to a dedicated option on the methanol page under ethanol settings.

1. Can I do the same with the JB4 app, I.e. will the app continue running if I open another app up on my phone?
2. Will I have any issue running two Bluetooth inputs simultaneously (GPS and JB4)?

Thanks.
Technically yes, but I hate having things log in the background as the OS can decide to take the resources away from the app if absolutely needed.

Shouldn't have any issues there no.

- Different options would have bare minimum information needed to troubleshoot before allowing you to submit. eg platform, components installed - facility to attach photos using the phone camera etc.
- If logging is required, have a walk-through guide that tells you when you're in the right gear (at optimum revs) and counts down to going WOT, followed by on-screen prompts when you've recorded a good log, or need to try again. The successful log then gets attached to the support request.

Would be handy too if users supply their N54tech username/pass, and on submission, it will auto-post a thread in the correct subforum, with set templates and titles created from information supplied by filling out the diagnostic form.

Actually this sounds like it needs to be a separate app..
We'll not be doing all of that (at this time), but we are going to be using a "Currently Installed Mods" text setting. This text will auto-fill when emailing support logs.

I'll double check with Terry on that.

I don't see those options in the beta version of the app either.
I asked Donnie about them via email but based on his response he does not seem to be aware of these features.

Just installed the JB4 (on a 2017 F80 if that matters) Doublechecked and made sure all cables were running to the correct areas. Also made sure all clips were connected. After i turn on the car i here a ticking noise in the engine area. Also i cannot access any maps when i hold the volume down on the steering wheel (for 5 up to 15 secs). Ive also tried the BC button to no prevail. Can someone help me trouble shoot?

Just updated to the new iOS beta version.

Can you give some details on the Register/Login feature? What does it do?

Unless Terry added in a new serial command that I'm not aware of, you can't control the CANflap via any JB4 interface.

They've been there since the beta was posted, but the labels don't auto-fill unless your engine type is supported. At the bottom of the methanol page, tap the field next to E85 Bits.

Not in the pipeline at the moment as I don't have access to a vehicle with CarPlay.

This feature adds security to the current Rev 3 kits. When you link a kit to your account, only your account is permitted to connect with all future versions of the app.

Current iOS beta includes:
Added server authentication for Connect Kits.

Added "Current Mods" text info. This will be included in exported logs.

Added VIN field (if available) to email subject lines at the request of BMS.

Added E85 bit support.

I'm porting all of this over to Android and hope to have the final beta of that out next week.

Ok, so it only authenticates with the Rev3 device locally? It does not use some sort of external internet authentication?
What happens if we sell the kit? Is there a way to unregister the account from the device?

Also what is the e85 bit support? Sorry if it's obvious, but I have not had a chance to see it yet since I didn't register my Rev 3 device yet

Thank you.

It is authenticated with a server so an internet connection is required every so often.

Support for the new features Terry is adding to the JB4. He has more info written up in a post on the front page.

I just noticed there is a unlink option in case you want to sell the kit.

I will install the current public version and not be doing any more updates then. 2 reasons:
1. I don't know anything about the server my information is being stored on. Who, where, security, etc.
2. I do track days at locations with no phone/internet service sometimes. I don't want to be locked out of JB4 if it can't authenticate with the server.

It's a shame you went this route.

That is your choice as a consumer, but bear this in mind:

1) Info is stored securely. It's not like you're providing credit card info or anything. Just an email address and an encrypted password.
2) I thought of that already. The device is set to phone-home on specific intervals (some number more than 20 connections) so that there is a "grace-period" so to speak if you don't have internet connectivity.

Donnie, If you run iOS BETA testers like you do for Android I would love to get on that list and help out. My E61 is up and running, currently setup with JB4 PI controller and the new 32.8 firmware, all I am missing is the new JB4 Mobile iOS.

Let me know, thank you,
Evan

Nothing saves when I try to enable any of the settings in this section. Specifically the Enable WMI pump PWM. It enters a numerical valve, but after I hit save it reverts back to 0 and is still off.

Only way I can change the E85 Bits is with the windows interface.

You fill it in once and it will then auto-populate in the email text field when you send logs.

You'd need to check in the E85 thread for that.
