Munich. At the beginning of the year, the BMW Group is once again updating the software in its vehicles with BMW iDrive Operating System 7 and 8. At present, a about 4.7 million BMW vehicles are upgradeable thanks to their hardware and BMW iDrive Operating System. Since 2019, BMW has been offering free remote software upgrades several times a year for infotainment, driving, driver assistance, comfort and safety.

New functions for the BMW Digital Key
A recent update to BMW Digital Vehicle Access allows users to share the BMW Digital Key for their vehicle between Apple iPhones and Android smartphones for the first time. Shared BMW Digital Keys are also easier to activate in the vehicle. With the BMW software upgrade, a BMW Digital Key shared via smartphone can be activated directly in the vehicle by entering an activation code. Previously, a conventional vehicle key had to be located in the passenger compartment.

Remote control parking
As a further innovation, the upcoming Remote Software Upgrade will introduce the Remote Control Parking function for certain countries and vehicles. It allows customers to perform remote-controlled parking manoeuvres outside the vehicle using the My BMW App – such as manoeuvres previously recorded in the vehicle with the Manoeuvring Assistant. Customers can also park their vehicle forwards or backwards within a radius of six metres, both lengthways and crossways.

New mobile operator AT&T for the Personal eSIM
The BMW Remote Software Upgrade enables customers of the mobile network operator AT&T in the USA to use the Personal eSIM. The Personal eSIM integrates BMW vehicles with Operating System 8 into the customer's existing mobile phone contract and enables the vehicle for the 5G cellular standard. This allows customers to make phone calls without their smartphone in the vehicle, stream data via the Wi-Fi hotspot and use video-services directly in the vehicle.

Additional features and enhancements for certain models
  • For the BMW iX, customers can stop charging and unlock the charging cable lock via the My BMW App.
  • BMW iX, BMW Active Tourer and BMW X1 with the optional Parking Assistant (SA 5DM) receive active steering assistance when reversing with a coupled trailer.
  • Some vehicles, such as the BMW 7 Series (2022) or the new BMW X1 (2022), feature the new My Mode “Digital Art” after the remote software upgrade.
  • Customers of the BMW X7 in the USA and Canada can look forward to a modern light graphic of the direction indicator.

Content and requirements of the BMW Remote Software Upgrade.
The Remote Software Upgrade is currently available for more than 30 BMW models and therefore almost all BMW models with BMW Operating System 7 and 8. Customers can see the software status in the settings menu of their vehicle under Remote Software Upgrade and can search for available upgrades. Only the next possible upgrade is ever offered for installation, the user can never install the wrong version.

The availability of upgrades, services and functions depends on the vehicle model and equipment as well as the installed software version in the respective country. The country pages of the BMW website provide information on the content and requirements for the Remote Software Upgrade that apply in the respective market. Instructions and tips on Remote Software Upgrade can be found in the corresponding BMW How-To Video.

This software *overrides any coding you may or may not have done...lights, asd, ect... fyi so you'll be back at factory defaults.

I think he means overwrites. Or resets them to what the factory settings should be.

Can confirm on the wifes F95 X5m all my bimmercoding was set back to defaults, including anti dazzle. 30 minutes in the car after to reset back to my defaults, and the test for profiles. I was full time IT in my career, now feels like I am full time IT to keep the cars patched and working 😂. My G83 M4 just got notice of the upgrade available, waiting for that to go on and then more recoding. I am wondering if my daughters X1 - U11 - will have an OTA with it being so new? Regardless, if you have any bimmercode/obd11/etc stuff done, it will be, ahem, un done - please don’t shoot the messenger!

Are you sure about that? Cross-platform key sharing announced last month said it’s for 11/2022 software.

Pretty sure this is announcing 11/2022 rolling out OTA in the coming weeks as the press release for 07/2022 was back in October.

That's exactly why my i4 M50 has all the options. I can only regret spending the money and not features I didn't get. So I only have one big load of remorse for spending that much money. 😂🤣

Got my question answered on the X1 U11, software update downloaded to the app. I have not coded anything on it, nothing available yet, so will report back on how it goes, should be straight forward….should be!

The upgrade originally showed in my car ( 2020 M340) and on my phone. By the time I got home that evening the update does not show in my car. It says download was completed, but I need to wait for BMW to complete the update. Anyone else?

Interesting.

Not near my car I’ll check it out later. Does it show version # or date of version?

I’ll take a wild guess… where it behaves as if the car is like 50 yards to the left of where it actually is? Happened to me on a road trip the other day. Rebooting my phone fixed it
