BMW F-series coding software E-sys is able to work with BMW ICOM emulator and ENET cable. Here’s simple guide to set up BMW ICOM A2 for E-sys software.
With ICOM A2/ICOM Next, you connect via ICOM. You will need to lock IP with program like EasyConnect or Itool Radar.
With BMW ENET cable, you connect via VIN.
BMW ICOM Setting for E-sys:
1)Run ISTA-D and check ICOM IP (mine is slight different of windows IP 169.254.55.70)
Properly itoolradar will do the same.
3) Run e-sys
Connect via ICOM/Ethernet (tcp://169.254.55.83:50160)
(click to enlarge images).
With ICOM, you can certainly try with ISTA+ to see if you get a different IP to lock with Itool Radar.
