Configure BMW ICOM Rheingold on INPA K+D CAN cable

Recommended Posts

Aim:

The BMW INPA cable comes with software CD can only do diagnostic function, but if loaded with Rheingold software, it will do programming function as well.

 

1. Plug the INPA cable and install drivers. For FTDI based cables use latest drivers.
download driver here: www.ftdi.com

2. Set COM port. Open “My Computer”>> “Manager” >> “Device Manager” >> “Ports” >> “USB Serial Port (COM3)” >> click on “Port Setting” tab and click “Advanced”
setup BMW ICOM Rheingold on INPA K+D CAN cable
Change the com port number to COM9 and latency time to “1”. Confirm configuration with OK button.

Do you have experience with a kkl cable or a K+DCAN cable?

I use a KKL cable and it works, but it looks like communications are much slower/rheingold seems to be reading a lot more data.

Is a k+dcan cable equally slow? (If you read the complete vehicle (all ecu's), that takes about 5-10 minutes estimated...)

i have not tested on KKL cable. It should work, both D+CAN and KKL cable are ftdi based cables. Rheingold on ICOM emulator takes some time to access ECU data, so as inpa cable. The reason why using a inpa cable instead of icom emulator is that it is damn cheap
