Iíve tried to use the remote software update but it says update not available fo my car or something similar.
Is there anything I can do besides taking it to the dealer ?
Thank you.
It doesn't appear so at the moment. There haven't been any OTA updates recently and not heard of any planned.

07/2019.53

The car has just come back from the garage with 07/2019.53 installed (previous 03/2019/60). No spotify, no caring car, nothing of any significance that I can see other than a different animation when the PA is 'listening' to you.

I asked for this update explicitly and the guys on the service desk reacted as if I had discovered some secret they were reticent to share...

Has anyone else managed to get Spotify/Caring car on their iDrive, and what am I missing!?!

I thought Spotify has been included for a long time. It's on mine 07/2019.30.

Do you have the driving assistance option? If so there's an assisted driving view now apparently.

I have caring car and my software version is the same as your previous one. My car needs to go to the dealer because the remote services and remote 3d view isn't working. I'm assuming the software will be updated during that visit.

No driving assistance option, but all the other relevant bells and whistles, like the Tech Pack, Park Plus, Live Cockpit and Connected Package professional.

What would really be helpful is if there was someone out there with these software options willing to PM their VIN so I could have my local dealer compare it to mine...

XSapper,

Do you have a MY2020 or MY2019 G20?

What is your full spec? I know M Sport gets for connected drive items for example.

Have you asked your dealer why you don't have spotify?

320D XDrive with M Sport + pack, Tech Pack, Premium Pack and Comfort Pack.

BMW genius answer as I was booking it in: Some cars have it, some cars don't.

I think there has been some monumental issue with this software and the subsequent OTA plans they had, which would cause embarrassment if it were to go public...

I just had my 2019 M330i updated to 7/2019.55. The vehicle was delivered end of March with 3/2019.30.

I cannot find the "Assisted Driving View" after the update. This fact has been reported in several places even if the Assisted Driving option has been specified for factory build.

I believe that the hardware that supports this feature is different to earlier vehicles. In other words, the Assisted Driving hardware has been revised on newer vehicles and the feature will only be available on those.

I may be wrong and the feature can be coded separately but I would have expected BMW to enable it if it was possible.

Please advise if anyone knows otherwise.

You have to enable it within iDrive settings, by default it just shows the map. Will have a look later and find where it is.

I emailed BMW about the latest version, they just sent me the link to the website where you enter your VIN and it tells you that it will update OTA. No mention of any version numbers.

Rang my local dealer who basically didn't have a clue. I was left with "I'll speak to our master technician and get back to you". Needless to say not heard a thing!

Maybe the master technician is some kind of Yoda character who needs some sort of sacrificial gift before he will give you the time of day!

I’m a bit fed up with my connected drive not working properly and lack of OTA updates so contacted BMW. I got this vanilla reply. Pretty useless

The remote software update will inform you on your phone and iDrive in the car when it’s ready to install.
The Spotify update will be made available to all compatible cars by the end of this year – Please click here for a video showing how to complete OTA software updates.
If you are not receiving these updates please visit your preferred retailer for assistance.
Please note: This update has to be performed OTA and cannot be downloaded onto USB.

Pretty much the same response I've been getting except my preferred retailer knows less than nothing!

Well in Cyprus the dealer did not even know that a thing called OTA RSA, was even available. Now they are trying to see why it is not shown in our cars!!

Did the link end up triggering the OTA update? If so, do you mind sharing the link?

Thanks.

Unfortunately not, it just says that my car will update itself OTA when an update is available.

But here's the link they sent me. Hopefully it's more use to someone else, but don't hold your breath.

The email I had says the software update has to be done OTA and can’t be done with a USB. That link is for a USB update. Bizarre

This is what it looks like when working.

If you go to "Car->Settings->Displays->Instrument cluster" you should have an option to "Display Assisted Driver View when driver assistance is activated" which is how I've got it set. Or you can change Central display area from "Map View" to "Driver assisted view" to always have it displaying regardless.
