iDrive 4.2 on 2014 X1s?

Hey all,

I tried searching the forums and Google but couldn't find any definitive answer. How do we know what version of iDrive we have? Any chance we can upgrade to the newer 4.2 version? Seems like it has lots of nice new features.

Thanks!

Other than asking your SA, you might look to see if the ability to engage automatic time setting is present since this is a new feature of version 4.2. There are some nice new features, but also some limitations for the X1. For details see http://www.bmwusanews.com/newsreleas...?&id=1713&mid=

Nice features include:
- BMW Assist standard
- Enhanced voice command options including available message dictation and integration of both Apple Siri and Samsung SVoice through the vehicle's voice command controls
- Expanded availability of BMW Apps-ready third party apps. In addition to the apps available in the US today including Pandora, MOG, Stitcher and Aupeo new BMW Apps that will be available soon include Audible, TuneIn, Rhapsody and Glympse with more to follow. Later this year, BMW Apps integration will be available for devices with the Android operating system.
- BMW Assist: Standard on nearly all 2014 models with 10 years of eCall with enhanced Automatic Collision Notification and BMW Teleservice.

The 2014 X1 either has or can upgrade to iDrive 4.2, but the X1 did not get several of the new features including:
- new iDrive controller with Touchpad
- Advanced Real Time Traffic Information (ARTTI) (1) not available on BMW X1 Sport Activity Vehicle
- Internet access is available as an option on 2014 models equipped with navigation and the latest BMW iDrive 4.2 (2) as part on BMW Online. The internet browser is connected through the vehicle using a 3G network connection.

I'm working on getting on the schedule next week to get the 2014-1A map upgrade, so I'll ask while I'm there.

My 2014 X1 was delivered in June and does not have iDrive 4.2.
