New Software Update - UPD05021

There is a new software update for F10s produced from July '12 to Feb '14.

It says it improves compatibility with iOS 7 and Android 4.x devices.

I'm downloading it now.

And can someone who loads it into an LCI tell us what improvements it delivers (particularly with an iPhone 5s)? Many thanks.

+1. I had an iPhone 5 and music was working fine. Got a 5s and sometimes the car doesn't recognize it when connected by USB and the sound is muffled. Sometimes it doesn't know what song is playing, etc. phone works OK though? Anyone else with these issues?

This update seems to be for the NBT iDrive; yours is CIC iDrive.

This is a Combox (built in in the NBT iDrive) update and not a full car update.

Downloaded and installed UPD05021 which I believe was chosen by the information input from my VIN #; installed T-1.023.015 and MN-1.023.007.
Very clean and fast process.

Hopefully this will address the Galaxy S4 skipping/stuttering when streaming BT Audio.

I'm having exactly the same issue with a Galaxy Nexus. I did the update yesterday, but haven't had enough time to test it out yet. I had to quit using blue tooth audio because it was so bad. I hope this works...

My car is a December 2012 build and I am seeing UPD01006 - does that have something to do with me not having navigation?

What kind of phones are you pairing with the car?

What differences did you notice after updating the software?

Were you cars coded and did the update affect the coding in any way?

Many thanks.

Well no change...

Good to know it isn't just the S4. I'm guessing it has to do with Samsungs being that the Nexus is one. Are you running stock Android on the phone?

We didn't have this problem on my wife's old x3.

I have a Nexus 10 that I'll have to try.

iPhone 5S user and loaded the software update onto my 5 Series LCI today. Saw no obvious improvement.

Old software: A long hold of the talk button on the steering wheel enables SIRI commands including sending text messages, though I can't see them on the car's screen. Incoming text message from my daughter's iPhone can be seen on the car's screen, but incoming text message from my son's non- iPhone doesn't appear on the car's screen. Can't see incoming or outgoing emails on car's screen. Connect through Bluetooth.

I was hoping the software update would allow me to see all incoming and outgoing texts and emails on the car's screen.

Any body else notice any improvement with the software?

My wife's HTC one shows texts and emails on car's screen.

When you say this you still have to go to messages on iDrive. It isn't like a message box pops up on the screen, correct?

Correct, but there's an audible sound when it arrives. Pop up of a text and email on the screen would be the sort of enhancement that we should expect if there was full integration.

Yeah, same here no new update available for us No-Nav cars.

I'll say though that I've had no problems with either of my cars getting NEW emails/texts to show up in iDrive, you just have to do the "double click and swipe up routine on mail/texts" when you get in the car. It seems to last all day too so if you are in/out of the car I don't think you have to "swipe up" again.

ALSO, this has nothing to do with CODING. It won't erase anything.

My car has the Nav System and it is showing the same file as yours UPD01006. My car has a 07/2011 build date.

I believe that this update is for vehicles with the new NBT and not for vehicles with the old CIC like Technic said.

I have a LCI with NBT/Nav.

As with the previous version, I can get to Siri with the long press of the voice command button. I can get texts consistently, which is the same. I still get mixed results with emails, but mostly don't see them with the car.

I noticed that I can get the car to read my texts. I don't *think* I could before this update. I seem to recall that I tried it before, but I couldn't choose that option.
