BMW ISTA-D and ISIS Software Comparison

This is good information for those who want to know if ista bmw provides technical diagrams and instructions like ISIS/ICOM.

ISIS is a BMW server platform for dealers. All updates are downloaded to the ISIS.
From there the ISIS updates ISID (diagnostics) tablets and ISSS (programming) if applicable.
The ISID runs an embedded windows xp OS.
Installed on the ISID is a program called ISTA-D (recent versions are codenamed ‘Rheingold’)
ISTA-D you can do all diagnostic functions, battery registrations etc etc. it also has wiring diagrams and guides on changing parts.
Some clever russians keep leaking the ISTA-D installer and it can easily be installed on any windows operating system. I can give you download links. They are around 10gb.
In ISTA-D you have a connection manager or how you wish to connect the computer to the odb port.
The common ones are:
BMW ICOM
EDIABAS
OMITEC USB
ICOM is BMW official cable, its predocessor was an OPPS unit. An ICOM is more than just a cable however, it has its own network adapter, mac address, cpu, cooling etc etc. Originals are expensive but you can get cheap but hq chinese clones for around $350 USD like this: http://www.obdii365.com/wholesale/bmw-icom-next-a-b-c-with-software.html
bmw-icom-next-wlan-setup-1 bmw-icom-next-wlan-setup-2 bmw-icom-next-wlan-setup-3
EDIABAS is a communication protocal which requires you to have BMW Standard Tools installed aswell – which isnt a bad thing! This utilises comport access amongst other connection methods and is configured by an ini file. Most people use this method of connection as its cheap, you can get a K+DCAN cable for under $50 USD now. Just do your research first as there ar bad clones about!
OMITEC is also an original USB interface. These are very rare. K+DCAN cable are copies of the OMITEC cable.
Update: Thinking it can be used on a Mac also… I use a Mac sometimes no problem with a windows VMware XP virtual machine and ISTA-D installed.
As I said there is no better diagnostic software. Its dealer level software and It’s freely available now all over the Internet. Plus it’s very user friendly!
So price is Cable + Windows XP CD key for the virtual machine…
Hope that helps.

2017.05 Latest BMW ICOM ISTA-D4.05 ISTA-P 3.61 Reviews

 

BMW ICOM software has been updated to V2017.05 Version, the ISTA-D 4.05.20 ISTA-P 3.61.4.002.And here are ISTA-D4.05.20 ISTA-P3.61.4.002 on Windows 7 reviews.

BMW ICOM ISTA 2017.05 review 1:

Download ISTA-D 4.04.31 ISTA-P 3.61.4 from www.cnautotool.com

Well done !
Perfect instruction for installing

I personally went for VM WS installation, because of the portability is a very important issue
for me.

For these run out of disk space, like me, i suggest to install ISTA+in VMWare WS Ver 12X with
win7 X64 Guest, Earlier VMWare versions down to 10 probably will work as well. Disk space need
runs to 350GB. I used 350GB diskspace on SSD installed in a caddy sitting in DVD slot of an i3
notebook.

ISTA can be working good soon, in case you are following the excellent instructibles of spider80
without missing not a one step of instruction.

X86 apps in VM X64 environment like itoolradar arose a java problem, even when I tried to
isntall an outdated X86 Java version.

Mayor Ista+/ISTA P Working like a charm(i used icom with latest firmware update). Running ISTA-P
requires good charging

equipment with constant additional load otherwise it will quit session. BMW currentliy advices
supply> 70A. For older cars like E-series.
25A seem to be ok in my opinion.
BMW ICOM 2017.05 ISTA Review 2:

Installed…100% working…so had to log back in and reply with Big thanks to the super package
with ecellent step by step install instructions.

Just had two little snags when installing under win7 X86….

1) vcrdist_X86 2008.exe download was corrupt…but easily solved by re-downloading from
microsh@ft
2) no java included in download package…again easily found via Guugle! many thanks again
spider80…you’re done an supporb job here. with brilliant step by step instructions

now I just need to find an BMW ICOM Next interface at reasonable money for all to fully work on
latest B’Mers!

BMW E/F/G/I series programming with 2017 ICOM Next Ista-P 3.60

2017 BMW diagnostic software is verified that ISTA-P can program not only E Series, but also F, G and I series. So, which Ista-p version and which BMW Icom can work perfectly with BMW E/F/G/I models? Read the write-up collected by Laura.

Which ISTA-P version is verified?
2017.03 BMW ISTA-D 4.04.12 ISTA-P 3.60.2.001(engineer mode) is the latest BMW software confirmed 100% to work without any issues with BMW E/F/G/I models programming

Which bmw icom works better?
2017 BMW ICOM Next WiFi version is the best option for bmw diagnostics and programming.
ICOM Next is faster than the old bmw icom. It is also better built IMHO.
And 2017 Next is WIFI available also.
It handles multiprogramming and coding quite nicely.
Gets the job done much faster if flashing the complete vehicle.
Another benefit to Next will be compatibility for future cars.

New models with production date
Benefit: The new G01, G32, RR11, RR12 can be dealt with.
Vehicles: G01, G32, RR11, RR12
Update of navigation maps in ISTA 4
Benefit: Update of the map data by ISTA 4 in motor vehicles with navigation system.
Planned for ISTA 4.06.1x. Up to then, the update can be performed with ISTA/P.

What about the I levels contained?
F, G, I Series (ISTA 4, ISTA/P)
Series group I level
F001 (F0x, RR4, RR5) F001-17-03-505
F010 (F06, F1x) F010-17-03-505
F020 (F2x, F3x, F80, F82, F83, F87) F020-17-03-505
F025 (F15, F16, F25, F26, F85, F86) F025-17-03-508
F056 (F4x, F5x, F6x) F056-17-03-507
S15A (G1x, G3x, RR1x) S15A-17-03-507
S15C (G38) S15C-17-03-506
I001 (I03, I08) I001-17-03-507
E Series (ISTA/P)
Series group I level
E065 (E65, E66) E065-15-07-500
E060 (E60, E61, E63, E64) E060-16-11-500
E070 (E70, E71, E72) E070-16-11-500
E89x (E81, E82, E84, E87, E88, E89, E90, E91, E92, E93) E89x-16-11-500
R056 (R55, R56, R57, R58, R59, R60, R61) R056-17-03-504
RR01 (RR1, RR2, RR3) RR01-17-03-500

What is I-level?
The I-Level (aka I-Step) is the Integration Level of your car, which represents a package of firmwares for all your modules, and it corresponds to the version of ISTA/P last used to program your vehicle.

How to read I-Level using BMW E-sys?
To determine your I-Level, go to VCM Module => VCM Master Tab => click Read under I-Steps:

The I-Step (current) is the one you want to match when you select the CAFD from the Detect CAF for SWE options (e.g. F001-08-09-550):

When you lost power in the middle of FDL Coding your CAFD, it became corrupted. What I am having you do is insert the same CAFD in it’s default generic state and then coding it based on your specific Vehicle Order (Production Date and Option Codes) so in the end you will have exactly what you started with before the power failure and CAFD corruption.

As I have repeatedly stated, so long as one isn’t coding the BMW ICOM A2 module, you should code with the engine running, and will you never have to worry about loosing vehicle power mid-coding, unless of course you run out of gas.

How to connect BMW ICOM A2 to WinKFP

Here are two methods usually adopted by BMW owners with BMW Icom a2 bc WinKFP.

First method
to lock the ICOM to Connection Mode: STATIC_IP and then use iTool Radar by Nubix to locate it on the LAN.

Second method
but that you will need the password of ICOM, but as no one brings out the password, you can forget this possibility.

only possibility is more like you’ve already described the BMW diagnostic tool with radar and lock.
in the Ediabas.ini you have to change something
Interface: REMOTE
and host the ip the ICOM have.
ICOM you can put on STATIC_IP with a file called
USER.settings(open it with editor)

ConnectionMode = STATIC_IP
Ip = 192.168.68.40
Netmask = 255.255.255.0
Gateway = 192.168.68.1

and a file which is called user.settings.log must remain empty.
The ICOM describes this file automatically.

these two files on a USB stick(USB2.0) into the BMW ICOM usb port
light of ICOM will turn on.
Car Diagnostic Tools ICOM must properly afterwards user.settings.log have described themselves.

BMW OPPS / BMW OPS

Characteristic :

On motor vehicle designs from your E65 on, BMW is for the to start with time using fibre-optic cables as normal for interaction amongst handle models.
The optical buses are noteworthy for his or her large information transmission charge and they are not vulnerable to electromagnetic interference. The optical buses in issue will be the MOST bus, mostly made use of for in-car leisure electronics, and also the byteflight bus, which serves predominantly safety-critical functions.

OPPS continues to be made for encoding, individualising and programming (CIP) through the Program Service Station (SSS) and envisaged for use as part of the BMW diagnostic method (DIS) from DISPlus and Team Tester A person (GT1). It really is supposed for testing and programming jobs in the E65 collection, using the location from the diagnostic head.

OPS is intended for immediate programming of control models.
When operated with the SSS, no diagnostic or specialized measuring pro-cedures are achievable, as no measuring engineering is integrated; in this occasion, OPPS / OPS is utilised predominantly for programming handle units (flashing). Interaction together with the car or truck is usually executed the two by way of one of the most and through the OBD interface. The OBD interface is required for your electric power provide into the OPPS / OPS and it has communication attributes via which the motor vehicle might be discovered as well as the information being programmed is usually decided. From CIP model seven.0, you’ll be able to delete fault code memories through OPPS / OPS.
