    I'll move this to the correct forum for you.

    To use Inpa on an OBD1 E36 you'll need an ADS interface which requires a laptop with a real serial port to get any communication at all.

    I've used Carsoft with USB to serial convertors before.

    If you have an Android phone there is a free application that lists all BMW error codes, the name is BMW Fault Codes.
