The update needs to be plugged into the USB port in the glove compartment. Let me know if it doesn't work. I remember having the same issue but don't remember how I solved it. If you are still having problems I'll try to duplicate the install on my car.

The software update is available at www.bmw.com/update.

In a previous post I stated you had to use the glove box USB port that is in ERROR. According to page 206 of the manual you need to use the center armrest port. Then from there go to settings:software update: start update.

Hope that works.

Pan pretty much explained how to do this - just did it to my car. I thought I'd add an idiot's guide (written instructions - see link below - and video) for this on my blog and figured I'd share it here:

The update on the BMW website is from last December. However, when I bought my 650ix vert in June, I was surprised that the 12-11 update had not yet been applied.

Mein Auto: 2012 650i vert.
Southern - just picked up a 2012 650i vert with 6k miles in Birmingham yesterday. Tried to visit the BMW update website today, but got the following error message after accepting the "terms". It accepted my VIN, so do you think that BMW is just doing maintenance on a Sunday?

You don't have permission to access /bmw_prod/_common/shared/owners/bluetooth/bin/UPD01004.bin on this server.

Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.


I've owned an E28, E39, E46 vert, and E60, plus I'm an IT geek. I'm reading through everything I can find about what this car can do, and I feel completely ignorant. Thanks for everyone's posts about the update - who knows about how much time I would have wasted with the USB key plugged into the glovebox port.

Thanks Southern for the guide. Sadly, the ipod music delay lives on. I'm going to try and remove my main library of 3.2k songs and just load a playlist to see if that changes anything.

First of all, welcome. Glad you decided to take the plunge and officially join us Good to have another Bama Boy around here

Not really sure what to tell you about the software issue. There may be something to your web maintenance idea. I'd try again tomorrow or some time in the near future and see if it is back up an running.

I haven't noticed a single difference since installing the new software. Hopefully another is in the works to make the e-mail and texts work for the iPhone once iOS 6 is available.

A BMW software update is not necessary for this. The car is already capable with the required Bluetooth stack. As long as Apple adds this as promised, we should be good.
