MP3 Software update 2005 545i

I just had the software upgraded on my 2005 545i - I was hoping to be able to play mp3's; however the cd still does not recognize a cd with mp3s. Here is my config

1) September 2004 production - 2005 545
2) no NAV
3) regular single in dash cd player


My dealer is clueless

Here are my questions

1) Should my 2005 545 play mp3's??

2) If not will a future software upgrade make this possible?

3) How can I find out through the I drive the eact software version that i now have? Can I access this info through the i drive ?



Any help would be much appreciated

1. If you have the latest software, a NON NAV E60 should play MP3's in the standard in dash CD player.

2. Future software upgrade will be for NAV E60's.

3. There is no way through iDrive to find out which version you have. Your dealer must provide it.

Thanks for the response - since my car was an early production model with no NAV i think i might have the business radio and not the pro. If this is true I understand that I will NEVER be able to play MP3s

Do you know if this is true ??? thanks

You're probably right - I saw your thread on E60.net, and I saw iceman's response. He's quite the sage over there, so he's probably right. I didn't know that the US didn't get radio pro right from the beginning, but now I do. :-(
