    Motorrad App

    Is there a simple way to change km to miles and deg C to deg F? I must have missed the set-up functions when installing...Can't seem to find settings that would allow me to make changes. Appreciate any tips!

    Welcome to the forum! What year and model bike is this for? That will help identify which version of software works on your bike.

    Once we know the year/model, I'll change to the title for more clarity.

    Motorrad Ap

    I downloaded the Ap for a 2021 R1250RT on my iPhone. After a an hour plus looking through this app I'm ready for some help!

    Motorrad App

    Yes, that looks like the App that I downloaded today. Could not find settings to switch km to miles.

    Are you looking to change units in the app or the bike?

    In the app, the bottom row has icons: handlebars, map, mountain, and 3 dots. Press the 3 dots icon, then choose "app settings".

    On the bike, you may not be able to. I have a GSA and the manual says I can change the units the TFT displays via a menu option in the settings. BUT ... for reasons unknown to mere mortals, and unexplained/not justified by the mother ship, the only units I can change are mpg <> liters/100 km and (I think) psi <> atm. The one I really care about (or will, if I can ever ride into Canada again) is mph<>kph but that has been "disappeared".

    Thanks! I was out riding today and came across the 3 very small dots on bottom right of screen on the app. Once I hit those it was a breeze. Just needed to know to hit the dots. I knew it was something simple...

    Bar to PSI ?

    Does anybody know if this app can change 'bar' to 'psi' on a 2015 R1200RT?

    That app only works with the TFT screen of newer bikes. What you want can be done by your BMW tech.

    I don't want to steal this thread, but did the '15 RT's come with a tool kit ?? how about the special tool to remove the oil cap?

    My 2018 RT came with the oil filler cap tool mounted to the underside of the seat. I hope that helps you out.

    On the RS it's the handle of the screwdriver.
    Remove the shank and use the handle.

    Does the RT have the same or does it still have the plastic filler cap tool?

    Here's the tool that used to come with the R1200 and what I use at home.

    On my 2015 GSA, the oil filler cap removal tool is also the handle of the supplied screwdriver.

    My 2018 RT came with a individual specific plastic tool for the plastic oil filler cap. I replaced the oil filler cap with the aluminum BMW oil filler cap that uses a tamper proof Torx bit they supply. It works much better then the plastic tool and plastic cap.
