I can't see much value for me. I am still reeling that you can't display emails on iDrive 7 like 5. Nor can you read text messages on the move or have them read out to you. I can see no point to having to park the car to read a text message on the idrive, you might as well pull out your phone and have more functionality if you are going to pull over and stop.

You’re right. Thought that 21-07 was released already and this was announcing a newer update.
I’ll try to learn reading better 😁

My '21 X3 with 07-20 software displays the messages on the screen and reads them out, if I want, as I'm driving. Will even dictate my reply message back as well.

My 2021 X5 M50i already has the 07-21. 4 update. But doesn't seem to have the different sound options. Any ideas? Or is it an update on this?
Thanks Brett

They don't but Android Auto ones do


My car is also on 07-21.40 (if I remember correctly) no additional sound control options. 2022 G80 M3 Comp AWD

How about just drive and stop texting in the car.

My G80 was produced in Sept 21 and I just picked up the car last week, so I assume I have the latest update but don't see anything regarding M sound control... I mean there is the button next to the shifter but that controls the actual valves I thought.

Same here.
Just curious: did the update mute your exhaust note? I've felt that the general advice for us 2020 40i owners is to steer well clear of recent updates, which have (according to several reports) all but ruined the burbles and quelled the sonorousness you'd expect to get in Sport. Granted, this maybe just an issue for us regulation-strapped folks in the UK/EU...

DavidXJ , 2020 M340i here. I had the brake boost recall and had the software change. Initially I thought all the sounds were robbed but then noticed that the update reset even my Sport Individual settings. After changing everything back to Sport/Sport Plus, it seemed just about the same.

Now weirdly, it seems that the resonance and pops are more noticeable with the windows UP than down. Like they made the sound reverberate through the chassis and decreased it on the outside.

Overall, not terribly displeased by the changes.

I just installed the upgrade and it doesn't add any additional button or option in the settings as far as I can tell. The difference I noticed was that the car is significantly louder in Sport and Sport Plus.

Apple maps works through my HUD through car play, although its not as detailed as BMW's. Google maps still doesn't work, unless this new update rectifies that

My 2021 X6 M50i built in April 2021 shows the same 21-03 with no new update due. Maybe it will change soon to add the new one.
I did a software update search still but no latest update available.

That's all I care about. One negative on the car, even with valves wired open: too quiet.

But but…it’s soooo important! And I have to be able to check all my social so I don’t miss anything…what if I don’t know what the Kardashians had for dinner?

I kid..I kid….but seriously, people need to put the phone down more. Watched a lady watching tiktok videos on her dash mounted IPAD while driving on the highway the other day. And don’t even get me started on the FaceTiming drivers. Just ridiculous.

How about we eliminate all infotainment (telephone, radio, apps) which can be distracting while driving? Don't forget about cupholders since drinking a beverage while driving can also be distracting. And those vehicles that have "the smokers package" that makes smoking possible which can also distract from driving.
