BMW ConnectedDrive Binding

Hi, I am using 3.1.0. Do you have a fixed jar as well ? Thanks, Lars

Same here - i am also using stable 3.1.0 and got for a while now:

Bad Request

In the logs:

13:20:44.931 [WARN ] [b.core.thing.binding.BaseThingHandler] - Handler VehicleHandler tried updating the thing status although the handler was already disposed.

I’ve got the same error “Bad Request” with the newest plugin and OH 2.5.9

Any news / updates to this?

Pull request was merged yesterday so changes will be in next milestone.

I had this problem too - there was a major change between OH 3.0 and OH 3.1. Running now OH 3.1 with the bundle prepared for 3.2 without problems. Please check the latest release candidate from the links of the top post.

Thank you very much! 3.x is working fine for me, now…!

Did use the 3.2 bundle you recommend.
First check, my bmw items get populated with values again.
This seems to work.

THX !!

I’m running 3.1 within a Docker container and I’m unable to make the snapshot binding appear, here I what I did:

  • uninstalled BMW-connectedrive-binding (3.1.0) via the GUI
  • shutdown down OpenHAB: docker-compose stop inside the .yaml-folder
  • removed all traces of bmwconnected-drive*.jar from the docker-volumes in /var/lib/docker/volumes
  • Downloaded the 3.2-SNAPSHOT.jar (md5: 42f15e28e479f40205519a00bbcf51dd) and put it into the addons-volumnes (next to the README)
  • started OpenHAB via docker-compose start
  • When trying to install the binding via the GUI only shows me the 3.1.0 version of the binding

Which steps am I missing or am I doing wrong?

Turns out, it is loaded, but fails to load:

2021-10-05 10:19:05.093 [ERROR] [nternal.ConnectedDriveHandlerFactory] - bundle org.openhab.binding.bmwconnecteddrive: (275)[org.openhab.binding.bmwconnecteddrive.internal.ConnectedDriveHandlerFactory(326)] : Error during instantiation of the implementation object
java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: argument type mismatch

The fixes are merged just 2 days ago and will be part of next the upcoming snapshot. I guess installation from GUI isn’t possible right now.
So keep your docker as it is, don’t install BMWConnectedDrive via GUI. I see for docker addon folder is mapped to /openhab/addons. Simply drop the bundle from top post into this folder and you should be fine.

Yeah, as I tried to point out by listing my steps, I thought I had to install it after putting it to the addons directory - but in fact it is loaded automatically when put there.

It doesn’t work though, this is the error I get:

2021-10-05 10:19:05.093 [ERROR] [nternal.ConnectedDriveHandlerFactory] - bundle org.openhab.binding.bmwconnecteddrive: (275)[org.openhab.binding.bmwconnecteddrive.internal.ConnectedDriveHandlerFactory(326)] : Error during instantiation of the implementation object
java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: argument type mismatch

I can provide the whole backtrace if useful.

If the HandlerFactory cannot be instantiated, which is the first class without any binding specific implementation, it looks more like a fundamental problem. I would propose to check the stable OH 3.1 version first or at least the latest OH 3.2 Milestone.

Stable version of what? OpenHab? Or this binding? I’m lost, I don’t know where to get the 3.1-version of this binding which fixes the API-changed BMW did.

Hi! Since Yesterday it seems that not all channels are working. For the “Gesamtlaufzeit Statistik” and “Statistik der letzten Fahrt” I receive only NULL values, while the other channels are working fine. Is it only me or does someone else has the same issue?

I’ve just install the latest Milestone 3.2.0M4, the binding version seems to have an issue with my account at least. Log details below. I’ve tried to uninstall the Binding and drop the version at the top of the post into the addons folder, this doesn’t seem to have any affect. As if the binding doesn’t load.

It was all working fine with 3.1.0 and that above binding.

Yes, I can confirm too. Stopped working on my side Nov. 9th at 10:15.
Don’t know if it’s a temporary problem or if BMW is updating their API again

Please check the configuration of your vehicle thing. Seems the VIN is set to VIN and not the real identification number of your car.

It’s set correctly, I replaced the entry so as to not show my actual vin. Good to know it’s not just me that’s having the issue.

Same here.

All the statistics channels return NULL value, in both operation modes (“MyBMW API” vs “BMW Connected Drive”).
