Thanks to Defined Coding! Bootmod3 & Coding

Post by DH91 »

Hi All,

I'm not usually one to write reviews (good or bad) but felt compelled in this instance!.

Through pure intrigue and noticing DefinedCoding (Kyle) as a new forum sponsor i went to check out the website and see what was on offer. I'd been flirting with the idea of getting a bootmod3 licence for a while and noticed Kyle had them at a price that was much lower than other suppliers i'd recently seen. With the lockdown boredom telling me to "do it" i purchased my bootmod3 licence and within 10 minutes or so had a personal communication from Kyle with all of the relevant information and the offer of a surprise complementary coding session!. At this point Kyle didn't necessarily know that i was a member here.

After receiving my licence details and reading up on the BM3 platform, i ordered all of the parts to build a Raspberry Pi based Wifi Agent. A surprise to me was not only that my device worked but furthermore that the process of flashing BM3 was so simple and on the initial unlock probably took around 3 minutes. Painful with lockdown however that i can't really test/try the car out other than the odd amble to Tesco and back.

A few days after mapping my car with bootmod3, we then arranged to do the remote coding session in the evening. It's a good job Kyle's background is in IT as i had multiple laptop issues (mac user) and he handled everything with patience and professionalism!. I give my company IT team plenty of stick as it is so was probably expecting a bit of Karma to come back and bite me in the ass here :lol:.

It's fair to say i had my fair share of laptop problems due to parallels and the ethernet connection throwing a wobbler. Kyle remained patient and somehow managed not to swear throughout and said we could do it another day. Once i had sourced a reliable Windows laptop, i messaged Kyle and within a few minutes we had arranged to have another go later that evening.

The coding session itself was very straight forward, all in all it probably took 20 minutes and i now have the latest updated software on top of various additional functionality that through the Bimmercode app i had previously would require me to be a little bit more intelligent than i'm likely to be any time soon.

Whilst on the phone he recommended certain options, explained what others had done, benefits/drawbacks etc and in all honesty made me consider options i was either;

1. Previously unaware of.
2. Didn't necessarily understand what they did.

Throughout the whole process Kyle was great & extremely knowledgeable, dealing with my 101 questions and offering to provide any further assistance i may require in the future at the drop of a hat!. We had a good chat about cars throughout the whole process and you can tell Kyle is a real enthusiast with a real passion for cars.

I'd highly recommend anyone after a bootmod3 licence or for any coding relating issues to have a chat with Kyle and talk through the issue, i'm sure he will be more than willing to help!.
