Change Bluetooth voice control language with NCS Expert

Here’s my story of voice recognition language change after the new MULF Bluetooth module installation:

Before I even start, people, don’t use SSS/progman for anything, the software is a joke. Winkfp, ncsexpert are much better alternatives.

I have a 2006 325i Sedan.. My bluetooth module died (Non i-drive car) . I used realoem found the part I need, ordered it etc etc Fitted the part everything was good, except when I pressed voice recognition it started talking to me in German. But I don’t speak German. Need to change the language

I looked through countless threads with everyone saying, this can’t be done, bimmernav ripped them off blah blah etc. To this today, I though it was over and I would just have to get use to it in German.

But then

I thought I would give NCS Expert one more go since, I updated a lot of files from V41 daten stuff. Anyways this time I clicked on the MULF module, dumped the TRC file, opened the TRC file and guess what is the first line.


So I save the file over the man file, change the deutsch to


Do the code.

Press the voice button and the most beautiful words come out. Please add telephone

For those of you reading this that are going how do you setup NCS expert and use it. I really can’t help. I’m ultra noob at it as I just started using it and I had to keep flicking back and forth through the doco as I was doing this.

IT CAN BE DONE :)))))))))))))))))))

Also it would be great if someone could have a look and tell me what any of these other options are as I don’t speak German <img class="emoji" draggable="false" src="" alt="

MB SD Connect C5 vs. SD Connect C4
1. The host communication connection end USES from design, to avoid inadvertently fall in the normal use of the communication port to connect and communication failure, etc.
2. DC 12 v power supply design/host upgrades to avoid the battery installation/battery voltage instability/host can’t enter the shutdown state, etc, caused by the motherboard and rapid aging of the battery.
3. The host CPU radiator surface and perfectly fit alloy shell, good heat dissipation effect. Equipment running smoothly, don’t crash.
4. The host USES the tamper clasp, should to avoid fragile warranty sticker damage caused by the warranty disputes.
5. Host wi-fi protected the upgrade for PC plastic shell, solid quality does not affect the wi-fi signal.
6. OBD main telecommunication lines connected to the host end upgraded to VGA15 industrial-grade connector.
7. Network upgrade for gigabit connections/pure copper wire core/double layer aluminum foil/woven mesh/silica insulation material. Gigabit communication Against interference/pulling open circuit / / fracture in low temperature.

OBDSTAR EEPROM adapter update to OBDSTAR EEPROM PIC adapter

OBDSTAR EEPROM PIC adapter is newly tested working fine and released at

OBDSTAR engineer successfully added 2 pieces of PIC adapters and one cable based on old OBDSTAR EEPROM adapter, the PIC adapter working with OBDstar X100 pro/ Chinese X-300PRO is designed to read write CPU data on a part of car computer, and EEPROM is to read out password from EEPROM chip and restore data.

EEPROM: read out password from EEPROM chip and restore data.
PIC: read write CPU data on a part of car computer

This post content mainly includes 2 parts:
Part 1: about PIC adapter
Part 2: EEPROM adapter coverage

PIC adapter is currently tested working with FAW models (05-26-2016 update):
FAW Wei Chi V5 (PIC): initialize CPU data for immobilizer coil
FAW N5 (FREESCALE): initialize CPU data for immobilizer coil
FAW N7 (FREESCALE): initialize CPU data for immobilizer coil
More car manufactures are under development.

The reason to initialize immobilizer coil:
Currently the 4s staff would advice car owners to replace new immobilizer coil the match new keys if key lost, e.g FAW Wei Chi V5 (Immobilizer coil model is 89783-52Q40) and FAW N5/N7 (Immobilizer coil model is 89783-TBA00), usually a immobilizer coil is charged $50-$85. If you have OBDSTAR PIC adapter, you will need no new immobilizer coil cost, how? OBDSTAR PIC adapter is able to initialize adapter and then directly match new key without replacing immobilizer coil. PIC adapter can initialize immobilizer coil for unlimited times.

Steps: PIC adapter +OBDstar X-300PRO initialize immo coil on FAW Wei Chi V5
FAW Wei Chi V5 key lost, firstly the immo coil is supposed to initialize, how to do please go on reading following parts:
1. Take part immobilizer coil from ignition , as you see the model is 89783-52Q40

immobilizer coil 89783-52Q40-2.jpg
2. Remove immobilizer coil and plug to the PIC adapter, two optional methods:
(1). direct connection way. Following 3 pictures clearly show how to do:



connect to pic-05.jpg
(2) Remove the chip and welding:
Remove the 14pin chip from immobilizer coil then weld to the NO.2 PIC adapter. (Weld to any one of following 4 welding point is ok).

3. Plug X100 Pro/X300 pro main unit to the adapter and No.2 PIC adapter, then give power supply. Press button to enter menu: Function – EEPROM adapter- PIC/ Freescale – FAW- Wei Chi V5.

4. initializing…, wait till it complete.

5. After complete initialization, take immo coil back to the car; start to make key, please do by following the procedure:
Number keys to match:2
A.Insert a new key into ignition lock to OFF position not ON position, then wait 5 seconds.
B.Insert the second new key into ignition lock to OFF position not turn ON position, then wait 5 seconds
C.Take out the second key from ignition lock. Insert one programmed key into the ignition, quickly turn on and off ignition for 5 times, you can see immo light turn off, done.

6. After done key programming, you need to synchronize engine and immobilizer. Please do as follows: connect X100 pro / X300 PRO to the vehicle, enter X100 pro / X300 pro IMMO remote – FAW Wei Chi V5 – Engine and immobilizer synchronization – type.

7. Complete Synchronization.

EEPROM adapter supported car models + function:
EEPROM adapter is able to read/write/save/restore data on these chips:


EEPROM adapter is able to read out IMMO code on these car models:
(Note: Need to remove EEPROM chip to read out code.)
