If BMW has determined that routine s/w updates are necessary for your specific car they may be performed by your BMW dealer. At my dealer in the USA (with a long long relationship buying and servicing my BMWS) I often ask if any s/w updates are made available &/or the service center may tell me &/or I'll ask about the function of a specific feature or option etc etc etc.Hi all, my first service is due at 18,000 in a couple of weeks, 520d m sport.
I have acc and various extras, from past experience the dealer won't update any system unless I have an issue.
Should I be asking for specific updates to various modules?
Since the Introduction of NBT2 EVO Head Unit in 2016, cars with an active Map Update Subscription (typically Free for the first 3 years) will receive Regional (not Full) Map Updates.Today the car tried to do a navigation update on its own, but I had to select to do it later because I was shutting down the car. I did not realize BMW had that capability. Is it does by Wi-Fi, wireless or satellite? Does anyone know for how long is this service offered?
